Do you think formal education matters today as much as it did 30 years back?

Has the internet-smartphone combo made formal education less valuable now, because of availability of on-demand learning?

Is the value of a good college degree decreasing with time?

No, it's no longer much important. We have moved away from an input-driven system (where credentials used to be important) to an output-driven system (where skills are measured by outcomes achieved measured through data).

Additionally, why formal education is failing is because it's unable to keep pace with how fast the market scenario is evolving.

It doesn't matter as much, but the problem is that most people don't motivate themselves to self study. Yes you CAN learn certain things online, but how do you know if you've learned all that's necessary for a topic? Also I wouldn't trade my educational experience for anything. I loved my college experience and the people I met there.

There are lot of ways to learn today and we are not dependent on going for formal education.
However, you won't get the formal certificate when you study on your own. So the truth is you might know much more than one who has got formal certificate of education but when you go for job, you won't qualify. You can, however, be a job creator and not job seeker. You will do amazingly good then.

Today in this Age Information is available everywhere and there is no need to Go to College to get educated.
But as every company ask for a Degree to give a job people attend college.

Menurut saya Pendidikan di mulai dari sejak lahir sampai mati...pendidikan nomer satu

In my opinion Education starts from birth to death ... education number one
