School as a service

Many schools have adopted the MOOC (massive open online course) model — like the classes at Coursera — which helped solve the problem of getting well-qualified teachers at public schools. Now students listen to star teachers either from home or in a classroom (if parents work and cannot leave a child alone in the flat), and then teachers who are not as cool help students understand the material. As a result, distance no longer makes a difference in the quality of education, and there is no need to take a child to a school that is on the other side of the city. Old-fashioned classes like PE and crafts lessons have been replaced by new ones such as 3-D modeling.

There are still schools with a “classic” teaching model, but not everyone can afford them.

Eric Poyntz This would be great! I am guessing their is either a translator within the video or whatever they're watching or would each language have its specific expert

Christopher Garrard I agree with the concept, but I would hope that in the future, we realise the importance of PE rather than replacing it.
