- One virtual textbook can serve essentially unlimited students while costing almost nothing — instead of costing hundreds of thousands of dollars, euros, yen, etc. only to be worn out and become obsolete very quickly.
- Talented, knowledgeable teachers can reach students far and wide who are seeking to benefit from their expertise — serving many more students than they can in a 20th century type classroom, and at no cost increase.
- Mobile devices that students own are multiples cheaper in device cost and maintenance than school based PCs — and the connectivity is both spreading and getting cheaper, FAST!
