If you fast-forward a decade, classrooms and lessons might look a little different, according to Microsoft (MSFT, Fortune 500) Chairman Bill Gates.

Today, classes are too big. Lessons are taught the same way to dozens or hundreds of students — each of whom has different learning style.  Technology can, and should, change that, Gates argues.

“Being there physically doesn’t add much value,” Gates told CNNMoney in an exclusive interview. He believes the days of big lectures with hundreds of students gathering in university classrooms may be numbered.

Gates envisions a college of the future in which students watch lessons online, delivered by the brightest minds in the field.
