How much should church leaders/pastors think about using technology in their ministry? Should technology be more integrated into colleges/seminaries?

Do you think seminaries will be just as relevant and practical for church leaders/pastors 10 years from now with the growth of online training being available and free?

Should churches being doing more live training in person/on-site or on-demand online training?
