15. It's no way to obtain an education.

Yes, college is expensive and time consuming. We as a society might make it less expensive, but there is nothing we can do about the time and still be able to call it an education.

Robots are not teachers. You can't have a class room discussion on line. You can't tell which students are paying attention or are confused and lost on line. You can't take questions from the class on-line. And unless you limit the size of the audience, you cannot give real examinations on line. What if it is a language class? How the hell can you teach a foreign language on line?

This is a way for administrators to save money on faculty and building space. Period. And it is a pretty crummy prospect for the future.
