Alan Slavin argues that the best way for universities to survive is to eschew technology. "The only way for our conventional universities to survive is to use our face-to-face advantage to provide a superior education... conventional universities must capitalize on the strengths of personal interaction if they are to survive. These advantages must be cultivated and advertised carefully; business as usual is not an option." Of course, one of the strengths of technology is that it can increase the opportunities for course participants to interact (of course, you need to do more than play videos and quiz students in order to promote this interaction).
