As much as this video was interesting and relevant to me, as a non-ivy-league college student -- I feel it only touched briefly on the largest medium that is transforming the way people of the world are becoming educated: the Internet. Taking, for quick example, something like Wikipedia, or like fora.tv itself -- I'd argue that you can learn more than you ever could without stepping foot in a classroom. I think universities are slow to realise that the current system is becoming outdated, and replaced by universal knowledge mediums that exist outside of expensive textbooks and curricula.
