The End of the University as We Know It | Nathan Harden - The American Interest Magazine

The End of the University as We Know It | Nathan Harden - The American Interest Magazine | E-scriptum | Scoop.it

"In fifty years, if not much sooner, half of the roughly 4,500 colleges and universities now operating in the United States will have ceased to exist. The technology driving this change is already at work, and nothing can stop it. The future looks like this: Access to college-level education will be free for everyone; the residential college campus will become largely obsolete; tens of thousands of professors will lose their jobs; the bachelor’s degree will become increasingly irrelevant; and ten years from now Harvard will enroll ten million students."

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, February 11, 2013 3:16 AM

Nathan Harden has predicted the end of universities as we know them more often, but in this article he provides a detailed account of the why and the how of their disappearance. The root cause of the demise of universities as we know them is technology, that is the Internet. Much as new technology has upset the record industry, so it will wreak havoc with traditional education, with a lowering of the price, ubiquitous access, a wide choice of courses, increased efficiency, and even increased quality. Of course, the last does not hold for the few who can afford to attend classes at an elite university, but for the many who go to "Nowhere State University". Naturally, the new model comes at a price. The college experience gets lost, interactivity in class disappears. But, "Online education is like using online dating websites—fifteen years ago it was considered a poor substitute for the real thing, even creepy; now it’s ubiquitous." With the technology, new business models emerge. As with all disruptive innovation, it is not so much the technology iself, but the business model around it that does the disruption. Here it is the scalability of MOOCs, the fact that the development costs of a course may be shared by thousands or even hundreds of thousands. 

 

Although the article is long, it is well worth your while. There's one thing you should keep in mind, though: in many respects it fits the US situation only. For example, few if any European universities have a public mandate but are run as businesses like universities in the US. Also, the college bubble with students having over $20,000 debts, is not a universal phenomenon (although with the current high tuitions, the UK is rapidly heading that way). And yet, don't dismiss it because of the lack of fit. Education is going global, the venture capical-backed online platform providers such as Coursera and Udacity already see business opportunities outside the US; and if they don't see those themselves, traditional universities will tell them as they are lining up to be allowed to sell their courses and brand name through them.

Top 10 Universities With Free Courses Online

Top 10 Universities With Free Courses Online | E-scriptum | Scoop.it

#1 UC Berkeley

Ranked as the #1 public school in the United States, Berkeley offers podcasts and webcasts of amazing professors lecturing. Each course has an RSS feed so you can track each new lecture. For printable assignments and notes you can check the professors homepage, which is usually given in the first lecture or google his name. Even though the notes, homework and tests are not directly printed in the berkeley website, as they are in MIT and other courseware sites, it's not a problem to find them. I personally tried to use it for John Wawrzynek's machine structures class and the nutrition courses.

Massive Open Online Courses at LMU Munich - LMU Munich starting 06 2013: Competitive Strategy, Mathematical Philosophy | E-scriptum | Scoop.it

LMU Munich explores new forms of collaborative learning – by making use of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). Via Coursera, a leading platform for online education, LMU will soon make stimulating courses in subjects that are of wide contemporary relevance available on the internet. Designed and taught by LMU faculty members, the courses may be accessed by anyone anywhere, at no charge and without having to meet any special entrance requirements. The MOOCs offered by LMU generally consist of video lectures, machine-graded quizzes, collaborative online learning forums, reading lists and seminar assignments. With this combination of inputs, members of the virtual audience can gain a thorough understanding of their chosen subject.

... im Spotlight der LMU finden sich einige ganz interfessante Aussagen zum Ansatz des MOOC-Einsatzes:

http://www.uni-muenchen.de/aktuelles/spotlight/2013_meldungen/coursera.html
...
"

Was hat Sie dazu bewogen, diese Entwicklung an der Universität anzustoßen? Was versprechen Sie sich davon für die LMU?
MOOCs bieten die Chance, Ideen und Erkenntnisse aus unserer Forschung an der LMU im buchstäblichen Sinne in die Welt zu tragen. An dieser neuen globalen Entwicklung teilzuhaben, bedeutet für die LMU eine große Chance – auch weil wir selbst viel dabei lernen können, etwa über die neuen Lehr- und Lernformen, die durch digitale Technologien möglich und vielleicht auch nötig werden – denn mit den nachwachsenden Generationen der „Digital Natives“ verändern sich die Selbstverständlichkeiten. Wir wollen die Zukunft des virtuellen Lernens durch unser Angebot aktiv mitgestalten. Und wenn es uns gelingt, durch die Kurse unserer Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler begabte Studierende aus allen Teilen der Welt anzusprechen und manche vielleicht auch langfristig an die LMU zu binden, wäre das ein großartiger Gewinn für die akademische Gemeinschaft an unserer Universität.

Ihr Kollege Sir Leszek Borysiewicz, Präsident der Cambridge University, prophezeite kürzlich auf einer Konferenz, dass MOOCs die Universitätslandschaft komplett umkrempeln werden. Glauben Sie das auch?
In der Tat wird durch diese neuen Lehr- und Lernformate Bewegung in die internationale Hochschullandschaft kommen. Universitäre Bildung wird durch die MOOCs potenziell für jeden zugänglich – und viele werden sich fragen, weshalb sie, wie es in den USA üblich ist, mehrere Hunderttausend Dollar für ihre Collegeausbildung bezahlen sollen, wenn sie im Internet kostenlos Kurse der weltweit renommiertesten Universitäten umsonst belegen können. Da müssen sich viele Universitäten umstellen und ihre Geschäftsmodelle überdenken.

Wird die traditionelle Universität damit also zum Auslaufmodell?
Ich glaube, dass MOOCs ein sehr vielversprechendes komplementäres Angebot sind, aber kein supplementäres. Das Lernen in einer virtuellen Gruppe wird die lebendige Diskussionskultur einer Campusuniversität nicht verdrängen oder ersetzen. Wenn jemand Zahnarzt werden will, ist es wichtig, dass er die medizinischen Zusammenhänge versteht, und die kann er sich vielleicht in einem Online-Kurs aneignen. Das Operieren aber wird er üben müssen, im Beisein und unter Anleitung eines Professors. Das gleiche gilt auch für die angehende Physikerin oder den Ethnologen: Wenn man ein wissenschaftliches Thema wirklich durchdringen will, ist es ein wichtiger erster Schritt, sich die Theorie zu erarbeiten – daneben braucht es aber immer auch die Erprobung und Anwendung sowie vor allem das Feedback eines begleitenden akademischen Lehrers oder einer akademischen Lehrerin."

A guide for anybody who wants to try out the MOOC format in nine chapters (history, use of social media, facilitating, references, to name just four) or those steeped in the MOOC format who want to contribute. To be sure, this is about the connectivist kind of MOOC (cMOOC), not the xMOOCs that stirr up all the excitement. A cMOOC is very much less about instruction and much more about networked (social, connecitivist) learning. (@pbsloep)

Indeed there's a setting to avoid that. Tell your students that on their Curate page, click on Manage>Customizations>untick "Last Post Image" box and click on Save.

The Anatomy Of A Great Teacher

The Anatomy Of A Great Teacher | E-scriptum | Scoop.it
There are a lot of great teachers out there. But what, exactly, makes a teacher a great teacher? Is their approach to their students and their classroom different?

 

Just because I'm a huge proponent of e-learning and m-learning doesn't mean that I'm anti-teacher. Quite the contrary! I'm a teacher's kid, and all my siblings and I have had some sort of training or teaching position in our lifetimes in different ways. To quote my very wise taekwondo instructor, "The best way to learn is to teach." I hope teachers never go away, as the really good ones are instrumental in helping all kids learn to fulfill their potential.

3 Ways to Make Your E-Learning Course Look Like a Comic Book

3 Ways to Make Your E-Learning Course Look Like a Comic Book | E-scriptum | Scoop.it

"Comic book layouts are pretty popular. And they work well for elearning courses. For one, they look different. It’s that type of contrast that can hook your learners who might be bored with the standard-looking corporate elearning. On top of that a comic-like layout breaks the content into panels which allows you to control the pacing and flow of information as each panel progressively reveals more. It’s a great way to still have the simplicity of a linear course, but make it seem more engaging."
