If we use technology mindfully and make sure we include the human touch, distance learning can provide many insights into the future educational landscape.

Tara Daniels's curator insight, November 23, 2013 9:48 PM

Distance Education has bones.  As educators we need to dress it with flesh - the knowledge, understanding and insight of antiquity.

 Wow, what an idea, use celebrities to attract broader audience to MOOCs?  Although Matt Damon once played a genius in "Good Will Hunting",  how much does he, not Will,  the character, actually know about the subject he is going to "teach?"  Don't think turning MOOCs into show business is a good or noble idea...

Ally Greer's curator insight, November 18, 2013 4:13 PM

e-Learning is awesome. The internet helps us learn in so many more advanced ways than our predecessors could have ever imagined.


One of the coolest parts about learning online is the visualization of information to make it easier to consume, more understandable, and more exciting! Here's an awesome infographic that goes through a brief history of e-learning, starting in 1924 with an Ohio State University professor who invented the "testing machine," and leading all the way to the present with tools like YouTube, Twitter, iTunes U, and Scoop.it.
