Udemy.com seeks to disrupt and democratize education by empowering anyone to teach and learn online. Hundreds of experts add courses to Udemy every month, including New York Times best-selling authors, CEOs, Ivy League professors and celebrity consultants.

“Once I finish producing a Udemy course, everything is profit,” said Miguel Hernandez, the Grumo Media founder  “Selling courses on Udemy is a product-based business, so it can scale tremendously. The margins are incredible relative to running a service business.”

Cutting out the middleman in higher education, or disintermediation, could be a boon for professors. If the approach pioneered by StraighterLine and Udemy takes off, adjunct professors in particular could have a new avenue to hawk their wares.

Something is wrong when One in Two College Grads Are Jobless or Underemployed

Something is wrong when One in Two College Grads Are Jobless or Underemployed | Teacherpreneurs and the education revolution | Scoop.it

It may not be news to the 1.5 million college graduates struggling to find a job or toiling behind café counters, but Northeastern University researchers break it down: 53.6 percent of bachelor's degree-holders under age of 25 were jobless or underemployed last year, the highest percentage since the dot-com bubble of 2000. In the last year, college graduates were more likely to be employed as servers, bartenders, and food-service helpers than as engineers, physicists, chemists, and mathematicians combined. The class of 2012 is about to get a gigantic wake-up call.

Peter John Baskerville's insight:

The statistics are showing that there is something fundamentally wrong with our higher education system when 1 in 2 graduates are unemployed or under-employed. We are failing our kids and leaving them with huge debts. Higher education needs to urgently reconnect with industry and teach skills that industry needs to industry best practice standards.

MOOCs – The education revolution has begun, says Moody’s

MOOCs – The education revolution has begun, says Moody’s | Teacherpreneurs and the education revolution | Scoop.it

"A new report by Moody’s Investors Service suggests that while MOOCs’ exploitation of expanded collaborative networks and technological innovation will benefit higher education in the United States as a whole, their long-term effect on the for-profit sector and smaller not-for-profit institutions could be damaging."


Via Peter B. Sloep
Peter John Baskerville's insight:

You know when creative disruption is taking place when organisations like accounting firms and venture capitalists that are far removed from the main players can see it happening. Moody's is the latest non-edu institution to see the revolution in education taking place with the tsunami that is MOOCs.

more...
Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, December 27, 2012 9:52 AM

What is perhaps most interesting about this, is that Moody's - yes, they - are interested in MOOCs at all. This shows that xMOOCs (unlike cMOOCs) are an innovation in the costing of Higher Ed., not their pedagogy. So, we do not get better education with them, but a more affordable education, if indeed we do. University World News agrees: "But the important development associated with MOOCs is that they are able to offer exponentially larger enrolments. And, with these, the potential profits are much larger." I suggest we acknowledge that xMOOCs make for lousy pedagogy and only value them for what they are, a means to make higher education cheaper. Then we can at least start talking about the question of whether we are ok with that. (@pbsloep, thanks to @guzdial)

The Future of Learning, Networked Society - Ericsson

Technology has enabled us to interact, innovate and share in whole new ways. This dynamic shift in mindset is creating profound change throughout our society. The Future of Learning looks at one part of that change, the potential to redefine how we learn and educate.

Peter John Baskerville's insight:

A video about the future of learning as discussed by world renowned experts and educators. They explain that traditional education as a process to create useful participants in an industrialized world is over. The age of learning begins. The  traditional methods of learning based on memorization and repetition will shift to more holistic approaches that focus on individual students' needs and self expression.

The economist - Transforming education

The economist - Transforming education | Teacherpreneurs and the education revolution | Scoop.it

MOOCs enrich education for rich-world students, especially the cash-strapped, and those dissatisfied with what their own colleges are offering. But for others, especially in poor countries, online education opens the door to yearned-for opportunities. Most traffic came from five countries: America, India, Britain, Colombia and Spain. 

Peter John Baskerville's insight:

MOOCs are transforming higher education. Not necessarily for the elite and the privileged, but for the multitudes currently barred from access to higher education because of cost and geographic constraints. The raise of platforms in 2012 such as edX, Udacity, Coursera and soon to start Futurelearn have seen outstanding levels of engagement.

Seven Themes for the Coming Decade

Seven Themes for the Coming Decade | Teacherpreneurs and the education revolution | Scoop.it

Summary:

1) Go East! - the world’s economic center has shifted to northern Russia. By 2025, it may return to central Asia – just north of where it was a thousand years ago.

2) Urbanize - By mid-century, 80% of the world’s population will be urban, mostly in the developing world.

3) Good to the Last Drop - Oil production has already peaked in 54 out of the 65 largest oil-producing countries, including the United States. The world is not running out of oil, just cheap oil.

4) Digitize Me - Economics is becoming less about ownership and more about access.

5) Smarter, Faster, Stronger - Humanity, as a whole, is more connected, educated, and healthier than ever – and this will lead to sustained innovation.

6) Stuck in Neutral - Political gridlock has kept the difficult questions from being asked. A lack of clarity regarding future government policies has created an environment of economic uncertainty and doubt. The looming risk of collapse in some industrialized nations may open the doors for radical elements.

7) Gray Boom - The industrialized northern countries will continue to grow slowly with mature, aging populations. We expect a rise in second careers and a shift toward part-time employment and small business. The “career ladder” has been replaced by a “patchwork quilt” of work opportunities.


Via Jim Lerman
Peter John Baskerville's insight:

Educational changes predicted include online education as a Government cost cutting imperative, urbanisation leading to the demand for more education, the need for education to drive necessary innovations, Gray boom looking to teaching and mentoring as a second career.

Quite a deep synthesis of emerging trends. What is most interesting to me is the second part of the article, in which the 7 trends are conidered in combinations with one another, creating reverberating trends upon trends.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, December 28, 2012 1:37 PM

It is important to observe and work with trends. I think the greatest challenge will be to know when to let go. What works and what does not work? Those will become essential questions.
