Online college will never replace regular college while online college are only for people that cannot make it to college. Online colleges are just made for people that cannot devote more time to college and cannot actually go to college cause of work. It cannot change higher education because online colleges are based on more of self reading. When people look at the degrees they are likely to pick the person with a traditional degree rather than a person with a lot of online college degrees. The fact that its too easy to cheat on online colleges makes the degree not worth as much. So online college could not replace regular college.
