Agree and disagree

From Andrew Leonard's "The Internet Will Not Ruin College":

There’s also little doubt that lectures delivered online to thousands of students at once, with limited capacity for feedback from educators to the educated, and huge logistical conundrums involved with assuring adequate grading and testing, are never going to be equivalent in quality to small seminars taught by brilliant professors who are able and willing to instigate vigorous classroom debate and keep copious open office hours.

I have a couple of questions about "adequate grading and testing" myself. But ". . . small seminars taught by brilliant professors who are able and willing to instigate vigorous classroom debate and keep copious open office hours"?? Is that satire? If not, it's ridiculous.
