COVID has vastly accelerated the move to online education, which is mostly crappy BTW.

Can you elaborate a bit on why this is?

I've done some online classes and they have been all over the map. The good ones were high quality video lectures and the ability to ask questions, the bad ones were back before the high bandwidth era and were just audio lectures and submitting papers via email.

I realize that the quality of in-person learning is a wide range of quality as well. It is a real blessing when you get an instructor that has a passion for the subject and can communicate that to you. Then there are a large percentage of them that are basically phoning it in and look like they hate their life.

A lot of classes were, "read this chapter, do these exercises, test next Monday." It is nice to be able to have questions answered but it seemed that most of the learning was teaching yourself out of the textbook. Perhaps I just had a crap education.
