Because it's not possible to be online all the time and it would create health issues especially in children.

More you use the internet more problems comes to human in the future. Offline education is the best education and it would stay forever. More over in offline teaching there will be a human to human interaction without any disturbances, we can see exchange of emotions and bonding between the people will always be specially.

Don't compare offline and online teaching ever, these two are completely different. So I would say " no chance "✌

Classes without a teacher are just PowerPoints. If they could take over humans, they would have done it already.
