CAN INTERNET REPLACE CLASSROOM?

Principles of Microeconomics via Internet

For my son Mark’s Econ 4 class, web based lessons with audio aided by a cell phone calculator have replaced time in the classroom.

He is a student at Saddleback College & Irvine Valley College (South Orange County Community District) and takes many of his classes in the traditional manner.  But Mark has found it more efficient to choose the Internet based option for some of his classes.

He is still sitting in the classroom for subjects such as math but many other topics can be delivered without the brick and mortar. For anyone who wants to or needs to take on any new subject of study, the Internet overcomes the issue of not being able to fit college classes into one’s schedule.

FOR A STUDENT WHO WORKS INTERNET CLASSES MAKE MANAGING A SCHEDULE A LOT EASIER.

The cost of California state run universities such as the CSU and UC systems cost $20-$25 thousand a year and private schools up to twice that amount.  The Internet option offers increased teaching capacity without the necessity of paying for buildings.

Are brick and mortar colleges and libraries losing their relevance?
