FOMO (The Fear of Missing Out) and MOOCs

FOMO (The Fear of Missing Out) and MOOCs | Educational Technology in Higher Education | Scoop.it

It’s that feeling of anxiety that you get when you look on Twitter and see all your colleagues are headed out to conferences, concerts, parties, or movies. If you don’t go, you worry, if you don’t do something, if you don’t have your own status updates and Instagram photos to share, opportunities are going to pass you by.

Massive MOOC Dropouts: Are We Really Okay With That?

Massive MOOC Dropouts: Are We Really Okay With That? | Educational Technology in Higher Education | Scoop.it

I’m starting to get more than a little grumpy about MOOCs, what with all the hype about the revolutionary disruptions and game-changing tsunamis. I’m tired of the mainstream media punditry and their predictions that Stanford University’s experiments with online education (and by extension now Coursera and Udacity) will change everything; I’m tired of Silicon Valley’s exuberance that this could mark the end-of-the-(academic)-world-as-we-know-it – a future that its press, its investors, and its entrepreneurs are all invested (sometimes literally) in being both high tech and highly lucrative.

Jim Groom, the director of the Division of Teaching and Learning Technologies (DTLT) at the University of Mary Washington, invoked Faulkner yesterday during his guest appearance in the Ed Startup 101 class. Specifically, he invoked it during the discussion of the successful DS106 Kickstarter campaign he ran earlier this year, and you could, I suppose, interpret it as Groom’s growling promise that y’all will get your Kickstarter rewards in the mail eventually.

Apple's (Q3) Education Outlook

Apple's (Q3) Education Outlook | Educational Technology in Higher Education | Scoop.it

On Tuesday Apple issued its quarterly report, one that analysts are describing as “lackluster, ”disappointing,“ and a ”reality check“ – all despite $35 billion in revenue and $8.8 billion in profit. The company ”only" grew by 23%, its slowest since Q3 of 2009. The reason, in part: consumers may be holding off on purchasing new iPhones (sales fell 26% from the previous quarter). Also down: revenue from the iTunes App Store (off $100 million from Q2).
