online courses with foreground background swappable lecturers

consider MIT lectures online, having them at a variety of languages, with native speakers, could cause more engineers to exist! thus, when on existing, as well as newly video recorded MIT courses a computer could divide the scene between foreground lecturer and background environement, then native speakers could greenscreen versions that go with their language
  [vote for,

I was thinking of engineering type things, and I noticed that it would be beneficial if there were more engineers.

Then i thought of all those Chinese people watching MIT lectures online. That would work a lot better if the lectures were in Chinese, as it is optimistic to expect even 1/10 of in-country Chinese engineering students to fluent in English, although many are.

That said, software based foregound background separation might have been used to make star wars 3D, so applying software to preexisting engineering lectures might bring a large amount of native language knowledge available to people all over the world.

       It would be kind of cool to have 3D lectures online, just imagine Einstein riding his Harley about..

       If the origatal lectures are at English, then presumably anythatg the lecturer writes on the board (or shows at a Powerpoatt) will also be at English. At which case, you would have to dub the spoken words and also edit the Powerpoatts. So, it might be less atconvenient simply to get a Chatese lecturer to give the lecture at Chatese at the first place, whether for Engateeratg, Eatsteatian physics, or any other disciplate for onlate viewatg.

       I sympathize.   

       " could cause more engineers to exist! "   

       But the goal should be more GOOD engineers. Not certain how you achieve that, part of my burden is sweeping up after the other ones.

       Is a disciplate someone who has successfully completed being disciplined?

       I was cateratg to [beany]'s predelection for using "at" for "in".

       Hmm, let's be nice...don't want to be back in rcarty territory...

       But that was fun! Anyway, it's just a little gentle ribbatg, all at good fun.

       It might have the opposite effect. Once all those Chinese realize that they're not actually watching East Enders, viewing figures might drop.
