About Higher Education

About Higher Education by Robert G Parent

On-line classes may become the death-nail of teachers of higher education.  If students can find out about what they want to learn on-line and in reading a variety of books on the subject that they want to learn, why should they pay thousands of dollars into the higher education environment.  Teachers will become like tutors because students will teach themselves.  I see this as something that will happen more and more especially as the economy continues to be weak and people have less disposable income.  Also, when people start to teach themselves by reading the many books about the subject they want to learn and watching videos and listening to audios about the subject, higher educational schools will have to change.  Schools will change by having teachers become mentors who help prepare people to take a test to become certified to work in the field of the person's choice.
