i think you are greatly over-estimating how many people use VHS. In my experience (in Australia, admittedly), computers are a more popular technology than videotape - especially among University students.

Perhaps. Or, perhaps it just depend upon the area. I say this only from my personal experience as a professor. When I ask my students about access, I can't recall one who has ever said that they didn't have access to a VCR but, down to the semester, I always have students who say they don't have access to a computer.

Admittedly, they may be talking about what they have at home, vs. what they can get at school, I don't know. I just know that when I want to give an assignment from one of my CDs, they ask me if they can't have it on video instead. Like I say, maybe the area makes a difference.
