A Day in the Life of the Future (Online) College Student

A Day in the Life of the Future (Online) College Student | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Thinkstock By Jill Rooney What does the future look like for online college students?


What does the future look like for online college students? With the explosion of massive open online courses (MOOCs) — including today’s announcement of U.C. Berkeley joining edX, and Coursera adding courses from 12 universities, including CalTech and Duke — the one fact we can say for certain is that online higher education is here to stay.

INFOGRAPHIC : The Internet In 2020

INFOGRAPHIC : The Internet In 2020 | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
The Internet is progressing at such a blistering pace that by 2020, we are probably going to see a lot of changes, hopefully for the better.  For example, right now here in 2012, we’re seeing a vast amount of data being uploaded to the cloud, as more...


Our infographic this week, courtesy of Visual.ly, shows us some of the possible changes that we might see in 8 years time. I’m sure we will see more people online as infrastructure, services and businesses start hooking up more to the net. This will mean more people, from a wider area of the world, from a wider variety of backgrounds, will be able to enjoy the benefits of the net and it won’t become a toy of the privileged richer nations. I’m talking about places such as the African continent, South America and Asia.

10 Incredibly Powerful Teaching Tools of the Future

10 Incredibly Powerful Teaching Tools of the Future | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Utopian visions of learning are tempting, if for no other reason than they absolve us of accountability to create it right now, leading to nebulous romanticizing about how powerful learning could be if we just did more of X and Y.

The computing trend that will change everything | KurzweilAI | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
The power needed to perform a task requiring a fixed number of computations will continue to fall by half every 1.5 years (or a factor of 100 every decade). As a result, even smaller and less power-intensive computing devices will proliferate, paving the way for new mobile computing and communications applications that vastly increase our ability to collect and use data in real time

Brain Scans Could Replace The SAT By 2032 | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Imagine it's the year 2032. You are a high school student. You are at a center where a visual scanner confirms your identity so you can enter a room where you are about to receive a brain scan. A robot attendant with a soothing voice recommends that you should relax and that you are welcome to take a nap. As you lie down in the scanner and earphones playing your favorite music block out ambient noise, you find yourself drifting off to sleep.


You wake up. The scan is now over and there is good news. You don't have any medical complications. Rather, you've found out that with your brain characteristics, you have a good chance of being admitted to the college of your dreams. Why is that?

What Should Students Be Studying Now To Prepare For 10 Years From Now?

What Should Students Be Studying Now To Prepare For 10 Years From Now? | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

The Xconomy team posed this question to their network [read: an older audience], reaching out to the people they knew “it would resonate well with.” And while we’ll include some of the answers they received, we decided to reach out to our own network and ask the question ourselves, curious as to whether a younger audience — whether they be fresh out of college, going for their MBA, or newly into their thirties, still trying to figure things out — would have something different to say.

Future proof your Education

Future proof your Education | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

The concept of 21st Learning has been around since the 1990s. There was a recognition that with the pace of technological change, the jobs of the 20th Century would be unrecognisable to those living in the 21st Century. We had to prepare our students for a future of great difference and uncertainty. As a result, we needed to move towards a more independent, skills based education system rather than the model we had that was based on content knowledge and specific skills for specific jobs. Well, we are into the second decade of the 21st Century and the question has to be asked – how well have we advanced in developing 21st Century Learners?
