Self-organizing Classrooms

I asked recently if your (math) teacher could be replaced by video. I was kind of serious. Now, I ask, could your teacher be replaced by the internet?

This TED talk is fascinating. For my students reading this, would you like to learn this way? In some ways, you probably already do. What would you think if I just let you loose and said, “Here are the objectives of the course. Go learn them.”? In what ways would that be better or worse than what I’m doing now?
