This is a perfect example of a bunch of common misunderstandings people have about the education process: 1 - that education is about teaching you "all the things". In fact good education is about teaching you to think for yourself and the content is largely irrelevant for most walks of life. 2 - that a perfect school would involve a one-to-one teacher student ratio. In fact, group dynamics and the associated social development are key aspects of a good education. 3 - that education is simply about "knowing the students" in a narrow sense of how they react to certain stimuli most effectively. What about the social responsibility and welfare aspect of education. "Online Aristotle" could not possibly relate to the children personally and react to their emotional/developmental needs.

Latest comment: You've clearly have never visited Khan Academy nor have you listen to Salman Khan... This is the future of education. Learning to think for your self, group dynamics, social responsability and personal growth in general are not incompatible with a complete revolution in the way content is delivered to students.

Since you do not have group dynamics on a web based training event, are you saying there are no good aspects of WBT?
