People around the world are taking a stance on traditional education and they are turning into strong believers of the complete disruption of a system that's not only inefficient but also enslaves people with debt.
Instead of having your view of the world molded by someone mediocre at best at what he or she is doing, the best of the best in the world could share their insights with the masses. You can have access to the highest quality of education that only the rich and a select few could have afforded in the past for free or a fraction of the cost.
The World has a tendency to democratize luxuries one by one. And, Education is Next!!
Does this mean a large portion of the teacher population will be left out of a job? YES, it does, in the same way, that mail-mans have been replaced by email, that horses have been replaced by cars and in the same way truck drivers will be replaced by self-driving trucks.
The world is moving towards efficiency and widespread of quick access to whatever it needs, be it products, services or in this case education.
This unique situation we're going through right now has forced people to reconsider the way they acquire knowledge and figure out how to translate traditional education online. It's not been 100% effective, but it definitely got a passing grade. Think of it as the first trial of what will, within our generation, become the standard.
Conclusively, Online Education will change dramatically in the coming years.
