Higher Ed Courses Enhanced - Not Replaced - by New Tech Apps

More new buildings open than old ones close. #vwwt2000 Predctn5  

PREDICTION #5 OF 20 from year 2000
Still likely?
New applications of technology, that appear to offer the potential for improving teaching and learning, will continue to arrive at an accelerating pace; but the dominant model for using technology in higher education will continue to be the enhancement of traditional classroom-based courses. More new buildings will be opened on higher education campuses than will be closed.
