Re: Education reinforcement at home

Schools/Universities: in the past (before internet time), information was held almost solely by the Professors. The teaching method was: a professor come in a class with students, provide information for 45 minutes and go out. the next Prof. come in, provide info and go out.
The students had to absorb this info during 3-4 years and do with it something, whether it was useful or not.
Now, the situation is different, especially after the online education (e.g. Cursera) popped up.
maybe that`s one reason why some of the conventional education institutes are struggling and some members in this thread mention that "the system should be updated".
As if books didn't exist back then. You didn't need to attend lectures, it was just another channel to provide the info that was also available in books and lecture scripts.
