Does eLearning kill creativity and make traditional universities disappear? Or should we start to view online education and its advantages as inevitable?

Stanford professor Daphne Koller is making the college experience available to anyone through her startup, Coursera (cofounded by Andrew Ng), an innovative model for online learning. By doing this, she is enticing top universities to put their courses online for free — not just as a service, but as a way to research how people learn.

She believes that a new model—in which information is given online and classrooms are used for interactive experiential learning rather than for lecturing—could help to improve education.
