Will the exams written on the internet also be regarded as true test of one's ability?

@prabhakar

 You are right on that, there are lot to be gained in going to school, lifestyle, culture and human relation can not be learned well over the internet.

Thank you all for your comments.  I agree that the social interaction in school is a valuable experience but I also agree with Ariella that 'one-size' never fits all.  If we can provide educational options that open the door for students who need to work while going to school and/or offers a lower cost option for higher education, I'm all for it.  I just do not agree with Robert Gordon, that the U.S. has reached an educational plateau.    I still believe that innovations in  technology can and will stimulate economic growth in the U.S.

In my opinion the school education is not just about books, reading , writing or gaining knowledge , but it is also about learning to live in a community away from your parents.

 

It is about  how to cope with adjustments, competition, insults, and all such things that an internet based education system cannot impart.

@Barbara Most schools have to treat students in a one-size-fits-all manner. And, of course, one size may fit most but never all. Online options allow for more customization at fairly low cost because a separate teacher doesn't have to be hired for each specialized group doing, say more advanced math, science, or history than the rest of the class.

@Flyingscot,

you are right, there might be little or no respect and trust for such schooling system.

Even the society might discriminate against it too because it may not be generally accepted

@Barbara,

For sure, this method of learning would definately have its own adverse effect on the quality of education and the performance of the student.

Good point about the Internet, or connectivity, enabling education for more people. I hope, however, that doesn't become the norm but is used only as a last-ditch effort. Socializing in school is as important as the academics. Already we see the effect of people entering the workforce that have no idea how to communicate face to face.

Interesting point about the alternative schooling system but I wonder if it will get the necessary accreditation or be recognized by the powers that be.  It is importnat to get an education but it also needs to be recognized by others as being useful.
