Why Online Education Does Not Work

Here's why online education is so bad.  I'm sure this guy needs answers to some timed exam he is taking.  I wouldn't even waste my time responding.  I'm sure I wasn't the only one he approached for answers.  I wonder if he found someone to do the exam for him:

Hello,I am a senior in college taking a course called XXX. The course involves galois theory and my book is called "XX" by X. Would you be able to help me via the internet in this class?I would need you from 1:25 p.m. until 2:40 p.m. in about two weeks from now. I would send you pictures of the problems by attaching a picture to your email. and I would need you tosend me the correct answers back through email within 75 minutes of you getting the picture from me.Please let me know if you can help.Thank you!

I am not quite as "pissed off", but like reading your blog. If you get a chance, look for me at
