Indian Technical Education has this trend of Private sector playing a major role. Quality is an area of major concern. Is the scence similar globally?

I would say that the private sector has full control over technical education right now. It should be a major concern for Americans, as it is one of the growing areas of employment. I would say that the quality of the programs are top notch though. Globally, I don't see it being the same in all nations.

It is matter of addressing needs of masses and affordability. India with huge population has several takers for the conventional technical education. USA has US citizens and global students. The world has good education haves and havenots the gap can be filled with online education

I agree. It is a useful method for many people.

Teachers are highly over-rated. Good books are more important than teachers imo.
My high school only accepted the top 2%.. Out of an official strength of 100 students per class, 10 people were present for each lecture(on average)..

Are we talking about at the university level or at any level in general?

I think its good that Indian Universities are kind of taking us out of the dark ages of education. Education is one of the few goods in society in which prices have steadily increased, yet quality has not increased, and is perhaps even decreasing.

Of course, a majority of schools are private. Yet, I believe the government involvement in education, both in price distortion and regulations, and the power of teacher unions, makes it so that schools do not compete effectively and as a result do not lower prices. Also non-profit organizations general have less of an incentive to make things more efficient, since they will not reap the profits. Granted, that doesn't mean that non-profit organizations don't care about costs. However, non-profit organizations only care about cost once they are at a loss.

Even with for-profit private schools, there is great difficult entering the market. For one, the value of an education is largely based on networking effects. Networking effects are that one person increases the value of an education. The ivy leagues are good not just because they have great facilities but they have great students and professors. Professors are largely motivated by prestige rather than financial incentives, so a for-profit school that has no prestige would really have to pay quality professors a lot of money. Plus for-profit private schools have trouble attract students. Good students want to go to more prestige private schools. Even a price-sensitive consumer would more likely go to a cheaper public school rather than go to a for-profit school. Good students are essential for a school, otherwise the school can't create a quality curriculum. The difficulty of a class and grades of students is largely based on the quality of the students. Also, a school needs to attract a lot of students in order to create good quality based on economics of scale. So this path dependency makes it difficult for developed nations to change.

I think you can make a quality online class. Granted however, online classes also have a tendency to be low quality since the incentives for cheating are great. I took a few online courses at my university. They were mainly a joke because I could just look up the information to pass the class. I didn't even have to read the lecture notes or do the reading. A simple "ctrl+f" was sufficient. They were also poorly designed as well. I really don't blame them though, because as I stated, you need economics of scale in order to make a quality online class. What you need is an online portion + a person to proctor exams.

Granted, I don't really blame teachers and professors though. It's really hard to be a good public speaker and professors and teachers are given very little prep time. Also the incentives for actually being a good professor are really skewed. Professors are given special treatment for their research, not teaching. Someone who is a genius in his or her field does not necessarily compute to good teaching abilities. For fun, I checked out Paul Krugman's ratings on "rate my professor". He got really low ratings. It's possible a bunch of libertarians who never took a class with him rated him down on purpose, however its really not implausible for a person who is good in his or her field to be a bad teacher.

I don't understand why lectures need to be done in front of a live audience. I thought I was able to absorb a great amount of information watching online lectures. All the lectures are pretty much the same, so why not mass produce it on a global scale? That way our greatest minds can spend their time researching to create better inventions, scientific discoveries and innovation rather than just teaching and grading homework.

Yes there is need to create good global content. I feel that more people can contribute to the content and it is for the en user to assimilate whatever he can extract from given information. But collaborative efforts are essential

Public 2-year community colleges provide more than half of all the post-high-school education, and they provide technician-level training. Many of best four year schools in science and technology are private, but there are public schools in the top ranks as well. I think the main problem in the US is the lack of students willing to work hard enough to pursue STEM careers.

I have a friend who is an engineering prof in a grad school in New York. 80% of his students are Chinese and Indian, most from mainland China. Why so many? "They're the only ones who apply." The hope for the US is to change immigration policy so educated people are allowed to stay.
