John Shank's curator insight, March 22, 2013 10:51 AM

"Unless technology allows colleges massively more efficient more quickly than anybody currently expects, or state coffers heal enough to start restoring these lost dollars, we're going to be living with the effects of these cuts for a long time." Is this why some think MOOCs are the future of Higher Ed.?

The deflating higher education bubble: What next?

The deflating higher education bubble: What next? | Higher Ed Management | Scoop.it
The folks at the Atlanta Fed are much impressed by Instapundit Glenn Reynold’s argument that the higher education “bubble” can’t go on forever. According to Reynolds, colleges have two different strategic choices: increase the value of the education for the current cost, or lower the cost of providing the current level of value. And he expects the most common response will be the latter, likely involving technology such as MOOCs and other innovations in teaching methods.

US Mooc platforms’ openness questioned

US Mooc platforms’ openness questioned | Higher Ed Management | Scoop.it
Forum hears doubts about uncollaborative and ‘imperialist’ initiatives
Keith Hampson PhD 's insight:

Interesting excerpt:

"Professor McAndrew warned that universities needed to start producing more polished open resources to share with the world in order to compete with the proliferation of off-the-shelf courses like Moocs.

“Moocs have tackled a problem. They can offer something that is structured,” he said. “Often what we do in universities is we experiment in ‘catwalk technologies’ - where you dress something up so you can show it to the world, but you wouldn’t necessarily wear it in the rain. What we need to do is move towards ‘ready-to-wear’ things you can pick up off the shelf.”
