MOOCs Are Dead — Long Live the MOOC

MOOCs Are Dead — Long Live the MOOC | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"The “e-vangelists” were out in full force with the over-promising and under-delivering of ed tech rhetoric. MOOCs were going to save Higher Education (or destroy it, depending on the session you attended); MOOCs would finally allow tiny State schools or small private colleges the ability to play on the national stage and compete with R-1’s and the Ivy League; and MOOCs would make education a true commodity, thereby creating a financially viable education-for-all system. MOOCs even made popular news media outlets like The New York Times and Time Magazine."

How Schools Can Respond To The Threat Of Technology

How Schools Can Respond To The Threat Of Technology | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"As schools try to utilize technology, they need to understand which aspects (or services) of school are likely to be better accomplished through technology. They should “outsource” or embrace technology and allow it to perform functions that were previously delegated to people, even instructors and advisors. This will allow staff and faculty, instructors and advisors to focus on higher-level tasks."

Why replacing teachers with automated education lacks imagination | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"The belief that technology can automate education and replace teachers is pervasive. Framed in calls for greater efficiency, this belief is present in today’s educational innovations, reform endeavours, and technology products. We can do better than adopting this insipid perspective and aspire instead for a better future where innovations imagine creative new ways to organise education."

My Turn: Critics of online degrees start from a false premise

My Turn: Critics of online degrees start from a false premise | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"...online learning has become so dominant for this student market. It offers a far more convenient approach to education at a lower cost. Admittedly, 15 or so years ago it was less clear that it could be as of high quality, and we asked ourselves, “How do we make an online class as good as a face-to-face class?”

Today, that question is reversed. The best designed online courses are quite often superior to traditional courses, allowing much better optics into the actual teaching and learning that is under way, being more student-centered and every bit as rigorous."

It has its talents (a few of which we looked at in why twitter works in education), but it is, in shorty, some thing some one made. And as teachers, we can use it, or leave it alone."
