Why is this a problem for Universities? Well, money, obviously, or, to be more precise, the lack of it.
So can Universities make their offerings more accessible, affordable and of equal or better quality than the unscalable business model they currently run?

Unless, of course, those brilliant minds, planning the strategies of their universities over the next 30 years can think of a way, develop it as a core part of their business model and transform themselves, whilst retaining their brand identity? (see, that Marketing stuff was not wasted on me).
...and whilst I am a great fan and supporter of on-line education I'm not so naive to consider it a panacea. But the fact remains that tomorrow's students want accessible, flexible, good quality delivery of worthwhile qualifications but very few Universities are prepared to meet those demands.
Oh, but 2050 is years away....
