They are going to wipe out college!

Well, everything but the elite universities. Courses are going to be online, you’re going to be able to learn from the best professors on the planet.

How did this happen?

Let’s see… College has been a rip-off for eons. Overpriced, with lame courses all in the pursuit of a degree that no one examines or really challenges.  But now employers are going to ask, did you take Calculus from Professor X? Psychology from Professor R?

Everything I learned in college happened outside the classroom. Throw a couple of thousand talented kids in the middle of nowhere and it’s the Lord of the Flies. I barely escaped intact. But college was cheaper then. Before all the universities had to build new plants, pay heftier salaries and beef up the administration. Kind of like all those record companies built CD plants and changed the price of an album from under $10 to nearly $20. Worked for a while, then it all CRASHED!

Don’t you get it? The Internet is creating elite. And if you’re a member of the tribe, riches rain down upon you. If you’re not, good luck!

Are you really going to take a music business course from a never been in the middle of nowhere when Jimmy lovine or Dr. Luke can teach you everything online for a fraction of the price?

OF COURSE NOT!

You’re no longer limited to the professors at your college; the world is your oyster, pick from the best!

There’s only one winner.

Why?

Because that’s the one where everybody will be, where all your friends are. Everybody will decide and that will be it. Second place will be like “Glengarry Glen Ross,” you’ll lose your job and go bankrupt.

Yup, college courses are moving online. The whole education sphere is being disrupted, just like music. Anybody trying to fight the tide is going to be plowed under. Adjust, or get out of the game.
