John Shank's insight:

This is an interesting question to raise. What are the benefits and what are the costs if online public universities become the new land-grant institutions. Who will be the winners and who will be the losers in such a system?

NFAIS | Trends in Higher Education: Content, Services and Business Models, April 26, 2013

NFAIS | Trends in Higher Education: Content, Services and Business Models, April 26, 2013 | Higher Education in the Future | Scoop.it

This workshop will provide an overview of the current educational trends sweeping college and university campuses.  It will take a look at a case study on the adoption of MOOCs at a major university, new forms of content such as open textbooks and e-textbook adoption, and how traditional publishers are packaging their content for today’s new “classrooms.”  In addition, the workshop will take a look at the results of a recent study on the return on library investment in content.  The meeting will close with a look at the future of higher education and how that future is driving the acquisition and divestiture of content across the publishing community.

John Shank's insight:

"Mention online learning in higher education and the conversation quickly turns to the explosion of Massive Open Online Courses, or MOOCs, and the opportunities for delivering quality education to the greatest number of students. Indeed, online learning is increasingly becoming a permanent fixture in higher education. But the nation’s public higher education system--the two-year colleges and four-year universities that educate the large majority of all college students--has been visibly slower to embrace the potential of online education. Many of these institutions were founded with a mission to serve their citizens, including those unable to attend in residence. Yet even as the technological means to achieve this goal reaches new heights, many public universities are shying away from the challenge."

Erin Knight: Linking Recognition, Certification & Accreditation to Anytime, Anywhere Learning | DML Hub | Higher Education in the Future | Scoop.it

As Senior Director of Learning and Badges at Mozilla Foundation, Erin Knight is leading the development of the organization's Open Badges Infrastructure in an effort to provide adults and youth ages 13-17 with an alternative accreditation and credentialing system for learning. Knight and her team announced the launch of Open Badges 1.0, a new online standard to recognize and verify learning, at last month’s 2013 Digital Media and Learning Conference in Chicago. Knight has also recently published a working paper in which she proposes an open, distributed system for badge validation. We spent a few moments with Knight to learn more about the platform’s potential to certify informal learning and what role badging can play in shaping the future of education.

I suspect badging will allow how the back end for apps can differentiate performance levels within software too.
