"The future of online education is rapidly developing; what it may look like even a year from now is uncertain. It is clear, however, that online education is not going away, at least not in the United States. Last December, thirteen-year olds all across the country got iPads or some other tablet device as holiday gifts. These young people may not be in our classrooms yet, but in a few years they will be. And when they arrive, they will prefer to work from their handheld device (rather than a textbook) and they will be comfortable absorbing content online. They will be veterans of Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instragram, and whatever else pops up between now and then. They may even hope that college is a series of TED lectures. It’s up to us to be ready for them: love it or hate it, this technology is coming. We are probably wise to own it before it owns us."
