Tony Bates: e-learning outlook for 2012: will it be a rough ride?

Tony Bates: e-learning outlook for 2012: will it be a rough ride? | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Tony Bates looks ahead and makes some very convincing predictions about E-Learning in 2012. Solid and detailed information about changes ahead and a listing of likely barriers to change make this a detailed look ahead.   ~ Dennis

The general trends are not going to change much from 2011 (which I identified as course redesign, mobile learning, more multimedia, learning analytics,and shared services), but some of the specifics are becoming clearer. Below I’ve ranked my predictions in order of significance for higher education, and also given a probability rating of the prediction actually happening.


Despite some of the risks outlined, the overall outlook for e-learning in 2012 is generally highly favourable, with the ‘good’ developments much more likely to dominate.


Although it is difficult to be precise, the trends towards more openness, more mobility, more innovation in teaching and learning, and more powerful tools for instructors and especially students, are clear and are consistent with developments in previous years. Yes, history is on our side!

When Joseph Cohen was a college freshman, he lived in a University of Pennsylvania dorm. At the same time, “I spent my life on the Internet,” says Cohen. Penn has an institutional subscription to Blackboard, the oldest — and still by far most popular — brand of learning management system (LMS). Cohen would use the platform to access course readings, interact with classmates, and submit coursework. Like many universities across the country, Penn used Blackboard as a classroom away from the classroom.


There was only one problem. “Blackboard was lousy,” he says. Worse, Cohen, a design junkie, had no power to redecorate. “Why is that?” Cohen says. “Why are LMS products lousy?
