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.

Well, I think that online learning is our future. Because it will not be necessary to waste time on getting to the place of study. To free time, you can use the real Essay Viking. You will have more time to do self-development. So online learning is cool.

Well, I think that online learning is more modern. Because you do not spend a lot of time getting to college, university, and etc. So you spend less time giving tasks. Because you have been asked to write something like wikipedia reference to phd, what can you see here https://essayvikings.com..., then you just give up everything in the electronic version. Online education is a very promising branch of science.

How can anyone assure that online education is not only accurate and un-biased by whoever it's being run by, but reliable as well? When I was in school, our school-assigned laptops were a huge destruction for me. You're giving me a box filled with all of the world's knowledge, video games, social media, and tons of other goodies and you expect me to only use it for boring and pointless schoolwork? The school tried to block everything fun but there are tons of ways around it that any average Joe/Jane can do. Sorry but my friends and I were still human, we get distracted easily. To make a long story short, they were the biggest distractions from school work we ever had in school.

Reliability: What if the power goes out for a long period of time? What about the 1-2% of students who don't have reliable internet access at home like some friends of mine in school, which hurt them academically? They should have sued for not having fair opportunity. Can students learn just as well in an online class as they can in a physical classroom? How will an at-home online education impact their social skills? Is the information being taught fair and without any sort of bias? If these questions can be answered, with what research done for how long by what group?

There are just so many unanswered questions and problems that need to be answered before we can even consider transferring education to the virtual world.
