The dirty little secret of online learning: Students are bored and dropping out | Higher Education in the Future | Scoop.it
Online education has been around for a long time. But massive open online courses are finally making it respectable. Maybe even cool. Let’s not forget, though, that they are still experiments.

"So why are all these students falling asleep, virtually, in their digital classes? Mainly because the people putting education online are still thinking in terms of classrooms."

Findings MOOCs Supplement Traditional Higher Ed -- Campus Tech. http://sco.lt/... #edtech #highered #elearning #MOOCs | Higher Education in the Future | Scoop.it
A new survey of students enrolled in massive open online courses (MOOCs) suggests that the courses are supplementing traditional higher education forms and "democratizing learning."
John Shank's insight:

This confirms my suspicion that just like TV did not replace the radio it just created another channel for media, MOOCs  will not replace traditional Higher Ed. courses but rather could enhance and provide another channel for those who are unable to take the traditional route.

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, April 17, 7:31 PM

Sometimes, little things go unnoticed and yet, in the long run cause major ripples in how we think about communicate among ourselves and about ourselves--thinking of Facebook and how it has both evolved as a digital leader and evolutionized communication and transparencies. Similarly, LinkedIn has been making significant changes in its  audience and its footprint.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, April 20, 9:14 PM

What's so fascinating about higher education is how we might be able to witness something truly transformative and amazing though I suspect the impetus will come from without like this LinkedIn/Lynda move. And that's okay.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, April 11, 1:21 PM

So how exactly does online education figure into the future of elite higher education? Judging by what we’ve seen so far, the answer can be divided into three parts:


1. Free online courses for everyone.

2. Paid online courses for professional graduate programs.

3. Online components in face-to-face undergraduate courses.

Stanford President John L. Hennessy on Information Technology and the Future of Teaching and Learning

The "unbundling" of degrees that many are predicting -- where students assemble the learning they want, offered in person or online, by one or more institutions to earn credentials -- is something that Hennessy predicted was the future of continuing education and professional education. "Online technologies will dominate this marketplace," he said. And this will include many professionally oriented master's programs, he said. But he rejected the idea that this would be or should be the future of undergraduate education.
