Good thing though technology like MegaMeeting video conferencing software can be used for online education or business meetings without the restraint of physical attendance.
Thus, with the right technology, medium of communication, online transactions including learning can be as equally effective but less expensive. Learning and communication nowadays is boundless, thanks to technology, we can be anywhere at anytime.
