I'm not sure I agree with the timeline - change takes longer that we think - but I agree with the trend. There will be a time in the future when the system of college degrees is regarded as quaint. The real prof of your learning will be evident online for all to see, not locked inside a document of a few words and transcript numbers. And I think that's a good thing: when we reach the sea-change where we flip from universities determining educational outcomes to students determining educational outcomes, the presumptions behind educational technology will be challenged and also overturned.
