Why don't typical US colleges offer more online courses so that all of the classes could be taken online?
Online courses are cheaper, more profitable and more efficient to produce quantity of student(which translate into more people can be educated); students don't have to spend time traveling to classes. Students could simply hand in homework online and colleges can just open up a lot of computer labs for the students to take exams in exchange and lay off some lower quality professors. Also, students can have more time to themselves to interact privately on the computer and all formal discussions can take place within the class online.
Also, the government would be able to pay less financial aid and students would have the convenience of learning the class material on a cell phone.
The most importantly,students can join a reputable college outside of thier home city and able to save the charge of dormitory
Also, isn't that it is better to eliminate the high cost private college by competition and let more low cost public university survive by let our government became richer from giving away less financial aid?
