EPIC 2020 - The end of higher education?

"EPIC 2020, stands for the proposition that the education of the world will change dramatically for the better during this decade. The two movies that follow and this site hope to provide tools that shatter the paradigm that the future will be anything like the past as well as facilitate discussion and accelerate actions to bring about the transformation of the education of the world"

KF: with the rise of the MOOC, open access, badges, personal learning networks and other shifts in the ways people access/create learning opportunities this site offers some challenging vision of what may lie ahead.

Who Will Benefit from Badges (and Other New Forms of Credentialing)? | Inside Higher Ed

"A number of initiatives and startups are hoping to offers ways to give people some sort of formal(ized) recognition for their informal learning – or at least for the skills they possess for which they don’t have official diplomas or degrees. Among them: Mozilla’s Open Badges project, the social endorsement site Skills.to, the soon-to-launch Degreed, and the open-to-the-public-just-today LearningJar."
