This is another opportunity for tech to rewrite an entire industry...

that will go just as ploddingly as OTT sports programming.

Rather than use the technology to get rid of the middleman (the universities) and provide the best content at a cheap price ubiquitously... they will try to mold the existing model around the technology. What a waste.

Said this earlier... the best professors in the world stand to become richer than Richie Rich if they ever find the cojones to ditch their University overlords and use technology to sell their wares to the masses. But profs are one of the most risk averse professions... hence tenure.

It's kind of funny that one of the most liberal groups in America crowd into probably the most regressive industry, especially as applied to the transfer of knowledge.
