    The old ONLINE is in this country for 20 years by mainly for profit schools at $ 1,500-3,000 per course . Already 6.5 may be 7 million students are taking these online courses for credits and degrees . That means 7 / 18 = 39 % of the students in the USA are getting education online even from mainly no name schools. Now, there is EDX , best schools of the world , providing online courses to the world at a small fee even without a credit yet . Everybody, particularly teachers and faculty critise it .
    World is turning nobody can stop it . EDX will replace the traditional schools soon .

    Good teachers do more than lecture. The provide leaning experiences for their students, motivate their students, assess progress towards a credential, and design study programs as a response to that assessment. MOOCs replace the lectures, but not these other activities. Colleges should be looking for a way to get out of the “lecturing business”, which will allow their teachers to spend more time on these other activities, which are the ones that define a great education.
