The Future - Universities

I came across a story of a young man in Nigeria starting an online university. I think he is on to something. First, face to face instruction is too expensive. Second, most students would like to live at home and not have to either commute or move to live on campus. Third, with internet access rates improving across Africa (because of smart phones and cellular access), there will be plenty of customers to serve. The future of all universities is online in the digital age.

What do you think?
