The Merc has a story in today's paper about the increasing practice of using offshore tutors in India to help American school children with their math and science homework.
I happen to think it's a great idea. I even wrote it down as a possible business concept after I finished reading Friedman's "The World is Flat."
But what I'm really waiting for is online tutoring in a virtual world setting. I've been on the record for some time that education is going to be huge for virtual worlds.
