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."
