Online Learning triples, is that good?

The Huffington Post had an article on online learning that I thought was interesting. Digital learning can give you access to the best teachers and opportunities that you may not have. I want to know if this is a case of opportunity or a case of meeting budgets. If it is meeting budget is this good because we are “advancing” our ability to learn or are we really offering a poorer education in an already poor education system? I’d argue the later. I believe a strong learner can use digital learning to actually make a subject their own. Someone who is not a strong and motivated learner will not succeed in learning the material. They may check off a box, but checking off boxes won’t help them when they are an adult looking to support themselves and/or a family.
