How LinkedIn’s Latest Move May Matter to Colleges

How LinkedIn’s Latest Move May Matter to Colleges | Disruptive Innovation in Higher Ed | Scoop.it
The professional-networking giant’s purchase of Lynda.com could allow it to do to colleges what Airbnb has done to hotels and Uber has done to taxis.
CTL - Regent Univ.'s insight:

Salient quote from the article: "It could also be, in the words of one observer, a sharp reminder to colleges that if they don’t up their game in helping students and alumni with career transitions, there are many other organizations — giants like LinkedIn among them — that stand ready to fill that void."

A University of Michigan professor teaching one of the company's massive open online courses, or MOOCs, told students this week he could not provide them with correct answers to questions they get wrong because doing so would reduce efficiency.  The professor’s decision is prompting additional questions by critics of MOOCs about their ability to provide quality teaching..." --Ry Rivard

"We’ve released a new report: Preparing for the Digital University: a review of the history and current state of distance, blended, and online learning (.pdf). The report is an attempt to reposition the narrative of digital learning away from “look, my cool new technology does this” to something more like “here’s what we know from research and here’s what we can extrapolate”. Innovation is a bunnies and kittens type of concept – who could possibly oppose it? Sometimes new is not better, especially when it impacts the lives of people. Remember the failure of Udacity and San Jose State University project? Even passing familiarity with research in learning sciences could have anticipated the need for scaffolded social support..."

It aims to make MOOCs' learning experience a rich and interactive one for students.

Georgia Tech and Udacity, a Silicon Valley-based startup, will work with AT&T, which is putting up $2 million to heavily subsidize the program’s first year. The effort, if it succeeds, will allow one of the country’s top computer science programs to enroll 20 times as many students as it does now in its online master’s degree program, and to offer the degree to students across the world at a sixth of the price of its existing program..." --Ry Rivard
