Totally agree with the poor experience you state. I went through college and I was appalled how much you paid for it and how inferior the teaching methods were versus the best things I had seen in High School or other places. On top of that, while most teachers were all credited researchers in their fields, they had no idea whatsoever what it takes to pass knowledge to their students (for most of them). This was really utterly disappointing and I am now a believer that online education can do better and without the "noise" of the classroom (where there are always a number of distractions).
