Leonard Waks's curator insight, November 16, 2014 1:20 AM

Of these 10 proposed drivers, I an guessing that the most important will be #5 and #6. At least for the time being, universities are really strapped for funds. Consider for # 5 a 'MOOC-Based wrapped course' where a prof assigns a MOOC as homework, and then  meets with the class one day a week = and follows up with a couple of weeks of class time at the end for projects and examinations. This strikes me as a  good division of labor in many courses - letting the high production videos do what they do best and the prof do what demands a human mind and heart for problem solving and coaching and mentoring. It can reduce faculty time by more than 1/2 without loss of quality. Now for #6, consider a group of twenty faculty members teaching wrapped courses based on the very same MOOC. They will have many questions and concerns and they can (a) find each other and (b) address them collectively through their learning network. The only other 'driver' that floats my boat at this point is #3. Many students like MOOC-based courses. The lectures are excellent and fit conveniently into schedules, and the professor is available to serve his or her most important functions. But I wouldn't oversell this. Many students still prefer day to day hand holding and may actually need it from a socio-emotional perspective to stay engaged in the course. So I'm betting on #5 and #6 as most important.

A new study, which may have implications for approaches to education, finds that brain mechanisms engaged when people allow their minds to rest and reflect on things they've learned before may boost later learning.
