U of North Carolina Students on eLearning

The editorial board of the The Daily Tarheel wrote the following:

In today's high-speed society, online courses are comparable to Super Wal-Mart. Both offer low-priced goods and both are convenient for people from all walks of life.

And just like with Wal-Marts, we would like to see more and more of this service popping up.

With the help of that technology, people across the state - not just college students on campuses - can receive a high-quality education from distinguished universities without having to leave the comfort of their own homes.

Grab a comfy desk chair and a computer, and you're all set.

What do you think about this? Is elearning the wave of the future? Is elearning like a Super Walmart? What about quality? Will this matter? Can we provide the quality of education in a elearning format that is comparable to F2F?
