Convenience today dictates much of our daily decisions and life plans; what makes this process more feasible is the internet and availability of information that can be accessed. Buckminster Fuller’s former prediction of using the web as a platform for learning has spread to larger and more prestigious institutions such as MIT, whereby people can choose to learn without having to pay for tuition or formally enroll into class. Whether or not one receives a formal education does not determine the influence and the success they may one day achieve. Providing education online helps those who are unable to afford education the ability to learn.
Architecture education, though is peculiar in that learning stems experiencing and learning in a studio environment. It is necessary to prepare students to tackle possibly real-world problems related to architecture and cultivate minds that are “curious” and critically analyzing work.
