Higher education technology predictions for 2014 | Mark Smithers

Higher education technology predictions for 2014 | Mark Smithers | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it

In summary, we’ll have another contentious year. We’ll see big growth in higher education services from outside of the university sector, a continued gnashing of teeth from established providers. Some new services and platforms will emerge to cater for different forms of learning, MOOCs will evolve and improve and open badges will be hot. Look out for rhizomatic learning.

Five brands using crowdsourcing for product and marketing ideas

Five brands using crowdsourcing for product and marketing ideas | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it

During a recent discussion about a colleague’s obsession with Lego I was informed of the toymaker’s forays into crowdsourcing new product ideas.

This isn’t a particularly new tactic and I’ve flagged upexamples of crowdsourcing in the past, but it’s a topic that’s worth revisiting as more brands get on board.

 

So in order to inspire your own campaigns or product development, here are five other brands using crowdsourcing...

Lego

As mentioned in the intro, Lego has a dedicated site for fans and customers to contribute their own product ideas.

 

Other users can then vote for their favourite idea, state how much they’d pay for it and explain why they like it so much.

 

If more than 10,000 people support the idea then it goes to the official Lego review board who decide whether or not to put it into production.

 

The creations currently being debated include a replica of Batman’s Wayne Manor, the boat and shark from Jaws, and a red squirrel.

 

It’s a brilliant way for Lego to pilfer ideas from its own customers and test them among the wider community.

This idea is not new, but nonetheless relevant for developing your product. I got inspired - how about you?

Wearable tech - social media data graphic

Wearable tech - social media data graphic | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it

If I said ‘wearable tech‘ to you, what would you think of?

With big names like Google Glass and the imminent release of the iWatch hitting the headlines almost daily and wrists everywhere modelling fitness trackers like the Fitbit and the FuelBand, it wouldn’t take you long to conjure up an example.

 

A couple of years ago, technology that you’d wear every day to enrich your day-to-day life was not exactly widespread.

The last two years has seen a massive surge in the production of wearable technology products and what was once deemed as futuristic geekdom is now pretty common stuff.

There’s a lot said about wearable tech, and what one journalist writes off as ‘over-hyped’ is another’s game-changer. It can be tough to work out whether people seem to think wearable tech is a great idea, or whether they aren’t actually keen.
