In 2020, people won’t be talking about online learning as such. It will be so integrated with teaching and learning that it will be like talking today about whether we should use classrooms. In fact, we may be talking much more about classrooms or the campus experience in 2020, because of online learning, and how it is changing the whole way that students are learning.

Starting with a global perspective as always, my primary concern is how Africa and especially Nigeria will position itself to stay relevant in a dynamic world. The time to start is now....what are you doing to stay relevant?
In a deal that could turn up the competitive heat on MSOs and other service providers that are expanding into home-automation services, Google on Monday said it agreed to buy Nest Labs, the maker of smart, connected thermostats and smoke/carbon monoxide alarms, for $3.2 billion in cash.
Nest will continue to operate under CEO Tony Fadell when the deal closes sometime in the “next few months,” Google said.
Founded in 2010, Nest has raised more than $230 million, with some of that coming in via Google, which led Nest’s Series B round in May 2011 and Series C in the following year. Nest employs more than 300 people and has a team of more than 25,000 “certified professionals who help install Nest in the U.S. and Canada,” Fadell wrote in a blog post about the deal.
“Nest will continue to be Nest, with its own distinct brand identity,” Fadell wrote. "Google will help us fully realize our vision of the conscious home and allow us to change the world faster than we ever could if we continued to go it alone. We've had great momentum, but this is a rocket ship. Google has the business resources, global scale, and platform reach to accelerate Nest growth across hardware, software, and services for the home globally."
The companies did not announce any product integration plans on Monday, but, in addition to retail tie-ins, one potential target for a Google/Nest combo is Google Fiber, the 1-Gig broadband and pay-TV platform that Google is rolling out in Kansas City and Provo, Utah, and will be deploying in Austin, Texas, later this year.
For instance, you consider the consequences of each option at different points in the projected future and weigh the ensuing losses and gains. Sounds great, right? A Spock-like precision of decision-making, clean of the messiness of emotions.
