There is a need for Boise State to think outside the current education norm by delving into the possibility of allowing international and U.S. students to graduate without setting foot on its Idaho campus. Sadly, many professors simply are not up to the task, having nestled into their tenured, dogged pace. They will be left far behind as their students realize their college education should be more of a consumer-driven commodity, rather than submitting to the dull emphasis of curricula forced upon them by staff who tarry behind in meeting the needs of current and upcoming Internet generations. With the advent of a new venture by Khan Online University, sponsored by the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson foundation for Idaho K-12 students, the program will herald new technological advancements for upcoming collegiate students. According the aforementioned foundation, Sol Khan, Ph.D., presents his ideology as an investment in the student, rather than just the instructor.
