    Re: the cell phone......I hope not!!!! It will work better if the phone and internet companies stop charging separately for phone service and lap top service. It's ridiculous to pay separately for these.

    You can never teach creative thinking through a cell phone. Period.

    Absolutely agree MOOCs are a super disrupter of higher education, it does increase scale and accessibility via low to zero costs and geographic ease of use a person in the Gaza Strip Palestine can take a course in the US on their dream topic it is fantastic and very democratic. As well most teachers love to teacher and share info. thus they are inspired to create interesting, interactive, fun online videos which students watch. The instructor I had was fantastic, his videos were fun and highly insightful to listen too.

    Its actually 33.5% of American adults have at least a 4 year degree. I do agree upon much of what he said.
