Great summary of 10 key issues for on-line education!
Eugene Fernandez's comment, June 3, 2013 9:01 PM
The statement at the end of the article illustrates why 'Education matters'. Schooling is about order. Education is about questioning. It’s rebellious, even revolutionary.
Eugene Fernandez's comment, June 3, 2013 11:28 PM
Is this a transition we need to go through, or does this spell the death knell of the face to face mode as we know it?


Education within the business school context has certainly not been revolutionary from my perspective. It perpetuates a rather narrow Pedagogical frame - An expert driven we know best model utilising the well worn but overdone case study methodology - usually drawn from a narrow sample of 30-40 global institutions. Hence by extension this expert didactic frame was/ is ripe for the picking.
Lecturing (Teaching?) to 50 in a room can be extended by technology to 1000's. Many articles now cite the dawn of the 'Star professor'.
