Master's degrees are growing faster than degrees at any other level, and experts predict that by 2022 they'll make up nearly a third of all degrees awarded. But to capture these new enrollments, institutions will have to offer different programs than those that have been historically popular.
If your work is related to program devt, then this is a VERY helpful report. You don't want to miss it. I read it and found several sections are insightful.
Learning analytics provide a set of powerful tools to inform and support learners. They enable institutions and individuals to better understand and predict personal learning needs and performance.
The report is not about what is LA nor how to do LA. Instead, it takes a policy maker's perspective to see the best practice of LA. Cases around the world like U o Edinburgh are also studied in the report.
It’s a fact that children of well-off families are likely to stay well off while children of poor families are very likely to remain without money.
42 is not an online learning sch like MOOCs. However, it does relate to Open Access. The main idea is that a person should not be taken away the education chance because of the lack of money. Currently, 42 is a coding school. Not sure if the same idea will be applicable to other disciplines.
In this report we look at how predictive analytics are used in higher education and the ethical concerns associated with its use.
A comprehensive report touches on the policy of predictive analytics in HE. 47% of HE used PA for academic analytics like predicting enrolment. Another half used PA for learning analytics for example helping students to succeed in PSE. The last section is about potential issues when applying PA in HE. It involves not only privacy but also ethical issues. e.g. purpose of survey among students for encouraging them to drop??
Sizing up MOOCs four years later: a tectonic transfer from institution to learner. GUEST COLUMN | by Anne Trumbore When MOOCs dominated the news cycle in 2012, they promised a sea change in the way learners obtained education, whether by transforming the traditional classroom lecture for on-campus students, or providing access to world-class educational materials…
A perspective of the new HE based on the experience from the Wharton School of Pennsylvania U. Not many new ideas, but I do like the saying that "learners are taking professional education in their own hands." The HE model has been shifted from top-down, u-driven to bottom-up, learners-driven. Decision is in the hand of adult learners rather than relying on university acceptance.
An interview to show how a college used Alternative credential-Badges to meet professional adult learners' needs. I'm not sure if it works for colleges. I have a feeling that universities are less likely to take this path. Might damage the PSE prestige?

The new Coursera CPO from Netflix introduced the subscription model to the institution. It's not really a new practice. Datacamp and Code School have already adopted this model. I'm not sure how many dollars I have paid for DataCamp :) When I have time to learn, this is a good model. But when I m busy, the money is waste. I'm also wondering if Coursera moves farther away from its original goal, offer education to those who cannot afford when the original founders left.
The contributions of CE to a PSE that mentioned in the article are undeniable. The issue is are PSE willing to listen and to strengthen the CE department? How many will see CE as a collaborator, and not just a subordinated division?
Learning means growing. And there’s never been a better time. Starting Oct. 24 — all courses on LinkedIn Learning are 100% free.
There are 2 info in the article. (1) LinkedIn just published its 2016 global skills. I'm not sure how different the skills set is from the World Economic Forum. (2) Based on these "demanding" skills, LinkedIn Learning offers free MOOC kind of courses. That's why this article is included here.
Really encourage you to take a few minutes and watch Robin DeRosa’s great Ignite Talk DML2016 on open education. In 5 short minutes (NO, DON’T CLAP I DON’T HAVE TIME!) she connect…
Another excellent 5 min talks from Robin DeRosa. Last time, we scooped Robin's concise explanation of open education (Open access, Open pedagogy, OER). This time, she talks about the meaning of public education. The idea is based on open education. In this 5 min presentation, she focus on the concept of open pedagogy. An excellent talk. It's short, but offers lots of inspirations.
Keynote given at Metropolitan State's TLTS conference in Denver, CO. A Sense of Audience I’m going to start by telling a story about how I got here. I’ve mentioned this on my blog once or twice, but this is the first time I’ve told this end to end in this way. I got here because…
This is a long transcript, yet worthwhile reading. Need to take a thorough read rather than a quick glance.
