Preparing for the digital university: a review of the history and current state of distance, blended, and online learning

Preparing for the digital university: a review of the history and current state of distance, blended, and online learning | Online Learning Design | Scoop.it

The sheer scale of numbers of students led to bold proclamations of education disruption and a sector on the verge of systemic change. However, from the perspective of 2015, these statements appear increasingly erroneous as moocs have proven to be simply an additional learning opportunity instead of a direct challenge to higher education itself. Many of the issues confronting early mooc development and offerings could have been reduced if greater consideration was given to research literature in learning sciences and technology enabled learning.

R Sutton's curator insight, July 30, 2015 3:54 PM

Caution is absolutely necessary in my opinion. Online learning will suit many people at various times and may further democratise learning and deliver learning that is more sharply focussed on specific individual or economic needs, but in the foreseeable future a blended model is more likely to be appropriate. The difficulty may be that face to face instruction/mentoring/inspiration may increasingly lie only in the domain of the wealthy (or wealthy nations). We must never forget the impact of inspirational teachers, especially with adolescents.
