The University of Everywhere: I love this idea! And I can see it happening too. The only question is, when and how quickly?
Without a shadow of a doubt in my mind, the advance of technology and the desperate need to solve the higher education funding crisis will drive this development. But more than that, this is a beautiful concept in that it accords perfectly with the themes of life long and social learning. Learning should not be compartmentalised into restricted hours and physical environments. It should be constant, permanent,online, offline, all time.
So, roll on the University of Everywhere. I for one intend to be a student.
