Minerva’s Plan to Disrupt Universities: A Talk with CEO Ben Nelson | Xconomy

Minerva’s Plan to Disrupt Universities: A Talk with CEO Ben Nelson | Xconomy | Open and online learning | Scoop.it
Traditional four-year universities have always had to compete for students. They’re vying not only against each other, but against community colleges, the
verstelle's insight:

This disruptive model elite university starts in september after three years of preparation. It maintains the concept of a four year inmersive campus education and an accredited diplom at the end. For the rest, all is innovated:

- all online classes

- all clases are seminars

- assessment is purely based on demonstration of progress in the seminars

- Students live in metropoles and move each year.

- And the costs: €10.000 per year.

Robert Schuwer's curator insight, April 28, 2014 1:48 AM

Disruption not by numbers. Targeting exceptional students with an approach that in my opinion is not scalable and has not to be scalable because of the target group. A question inanswered is: when teaching is closely related to research (as is the case at universities this initiative tries to disrupt), where is the research taking place?

Wilko Dijkhuis's curator insight, April 28, 2014 5:13 AM

Interesting pedagogical concept.
- all classes are seminars (19 students + 1 prof)
- all classes will be conducted virtually (no in the flesh meetings)
- the student participation in the seminar is monitored and recorded constantly (one student, one camera) 

- assessment is based on reviewing the recorded participation in the seminars

IN JULY 2011 Sebastian Thrun, who among other things is a professor at Stanford, posted a short video on YouTube, announcing that he and a colleague, Peter Norvig, were making their “Introduction to Artificial Intelligence” course available free online. By the time the course began in October, 160,000 people in 190 countries had signed up for it. At the same time Andrew Ng, also a Stanford professor, made one of his courses, on machine learning, available free online, for which 100,000 people enrolled. Both courses ran for ten weeks. Mr Thrun’s was completed by 23,000 people; Mr Ng’s by 13,000.

Effects of mobile phone use in the classroom

Effects of mobile phone use in the classroom | Open and online learning | Scoop.it
The results lead the authors to ‘caution against rushing to integrate texting and Twitter into the classroom.’ Since students who engaged with relevant messages did not outperform the control group, while those who engaged with irrelevant messages underperformed, there appears to be limited benefits of allowing mobile phones in the classroom even when they are used as intended – and merely downsides if they are not used as intended.

Leiden University’s Learners around the World

Leiden University’s Learners around the World | Open and online learning | Scoop.it
The United Nations’ fourth Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) aims to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all”. The Centre for Innovation at Leiden University feels the responsibility to tackle this need. Our mission is to drive innovation and help with the response to major national and global problems, by educating and inspiring people into action. We believe it is the university’s duty to share the experiences gained in the educational and research fields, not only with our own teachers and students, but also with those further afield. We are therefore actively seeking to share our knowledge with people around the world and one of the ways we do this is via our Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).
