"Use online learning to connect similar students rather than make similar students connect."
"The technology is there, it's just not simple enough for the general public to use efficiently or effectively right now. What people expect to achieve now is not possible without simplifying the technology first."
Live lectures to encourage interaction and participation
Army of TA available throughout the day to help with further questions
Stimulate reliance on other classmates
i.e. Specialized software, specialized keyboard, digital shared boards during live lectures, etc.
"Some form of regulation is needed for an institution of learning or else you might as well just learn on your own. What's the point of going to 'class' then?"

College "Experience" Advocates
essence of college experience
•Learning environment's connection to "socialization"
" I just don't see the point of wasting my time online and spending money on something that I don't feel I'm learning from. If I wanted to teach myself how to do something I would do it without having to pay someone. It's just not of value to me."
"I feel like its for people who really have to juggle multiple things like work and school. By work I mean supporting yourself and making money NOT internships. But, if you have parents that will support you financially, it's not really something you have to do or think about.. You have more time to spend physically going to class and being social. I would only do it if I was forced to/had no other choice."
"I could waste my time online getting some kind of fashion degree but it would mean nothing, it wouldn't help me get any more jobs than I do now, and it would not get me more experience. Writing a paper about fashion is not the same as actually producing and being a PART of something."
"The reason online doesn't work is because when people think 'college' they think of groups of people, support groups, etc. The college experience is connected with socialization more than anything."
"Online kind of takes all the pros about college and leaves only the skeleton (read: dead carcass) of it. Take that whichever way you will."
"I think I was too intimidated to take an online class, especially not being a native English speaker. I would feel too unsure of my interpretation of the directions and it's much more of a process to get in contact with your teacher than it is in class - where you only have to raise your hand and a question is answered."
•Lack of Necessity to
to physical space
"It's great if you need to juggle many things at once. The schedule is flexible and based on your needs."
"Online Learning was just not invented for 20 year olds. There's no real incentive there. Responsibility and the idea of self-monitored learning is not something that has been full developed in that age group."
