Online education is practical for the modern American lifestyle when compared to the conventional methods. I think it will bring some global change and maybe a full-scale change to the educational system design. Rosetta Stone is great example of an online/offline educational program. It teaches language like no other.

What would be the future scenario in online education.
It appears that colleges are for peer interaction and social interactions.
The knowledge transfer should not be restricted to some professors of some particular university. The knowledge should be universal and a college faculty should be global. Real knowledge builds with getting multiple inputs.

Online education is good for lectures, homework problems, and for assistance. I've watched some very good online lectures. I learned game theory through a yale open course. It's a very efficient and cheap source of information.

With that said, examination should be done in real time to avoid cheating. I've taken online quizzes and exams, and the incentives to try and learn are greatly diminished. I just used ctrl+f to pass my online classes at the university I go to.

Online education has the potential to improve education quality and reduce the cost of it down to a few hundred bucks a year.

I also think that cooperative learning is also a cheap solution to education that is also underutilized. Again, cooperative learning also runs into the same problem of cheating incentives, especially if grading is involved.

Online education allows the students to enjoy utmost freedom in the process of learning. It helps you to remain engaged in all other works including the course you want to pursue. I think its the major difference between the online education and conventional education systems.
