Wanna save 5.4 million?

December 2, 2007

With gas maintaining its $3 price per gallon will this affect educational commerce? You bet ya!

I found this blog that states that if 1000 students in each state switched to distance education versus driving to class the savings can mount up to 5.4 million per state.

This really made me consider the future of brick and mortar schools, will they still be present in 50 years? Probably not in the same incarnation that we see today but the requirement that everyone be in the same room at the same time for class may be left on the wayside.

Interesting.

    I agree with you. This is an interesting idea and environmentally friendly. I suppose in 50 years the problem of equal access to technology will have been figured out, too. Tha $5.4 million would buy a lot of computers!

    I think they’ll still be around, but I think we have major hub universities where you have the option of face to face classes and the majority of online classes. The opposite of what it is today.
