Classroom 2020

“You wake up at 9:23 a.m. one September morning in 2020. Your alarm failed to sound and now you’re late. But don’t fret. Your commute to school consists of carrying your laptop to the kitchen table. No need for a back-to-school outfit, as you settle in wearing pyjamas.” … “After a while, your eyes wander to the window. It’s a gorgeous day, ... you abandon your computer and finish the lecture on your cellphone from your backyard.”

“Is the university as a physical place obsolete?”
