Can video lectures replace teachers in third-world developing countries?

In countries like Pakistan, can short video lectures on cheap tablets be used to educate the children in absense of a teacher?

Has this modeled been implemented in any other third-world country?

    Can video lectures replace teachers in third world developing countries?? I am completely disagree with this statement because video lecture can provide lot of information to the students but infact it will not be productive enough for their lessons. Teacher plays an important role to make the sudents understandable. if you replce the teachers you could save some money and time but in reality it will not be helpful to the students. As u mention about third world developing country i would say that this systme is not appropriate for all. Cheers. Probir
