what would seminary education be like in the near future?

in any seminary, there is always the struggle on how to cater to the needs of the students especially those who find difficulty in quitting their present jobs and coming in to study full-time for 3 or 4 years. seminaries like stm have TEE courses where full-time professionals do not have to quit their jobs to study.

there are other ways like hybrid programs in some seminaries where a certain amount of courses are to be taken in-campus but the majority of it can be done off-campus or online.

what would seminary education be like 20 years from now? 40 years? 60 years? the cartoon from rev.org says it all (maybe more for the US context!):

In 60 yrs time, the congregation will then be installed with a computer to understand the message in binary? Hmmm ... then service will be over in just 5 minutes, in full liturgy ;)

in 60 years, no need to come to church. just plug in usb port and download full service from church while still lying on the bed!

We can already do that now :)
Maybe in 60 years, can have hologram church service in your bedroom.
