Distance education has great strengths, but also limitations. I'm a lifelong CONSERVATIVE, so don't come back with a knee-jerk "you lazy bums" wave-off because I make my living as a professor. From my 20 years in the business, the most important thing we need to do is separate the teaching and the evaluation (credentialing) elements. The students put up with the teacher’s BS because the teacher controls their grades: If students had to prove their knowledge and skills to an independent evaluator the professors’ power over them would deflate like a popped balloon.
