The Internet Killed the Classroom Star

The Internet Killed the Classroom Star | Open Educational Practices | Scoop.it

As technology advances, industries must adapt or risk being left behind. The music industry faced this with the advent of MTV in the early 1980s, and higher education is becoming affected today.


Via Alberto Acereda, Ph.D., Donna Murdoch
Leo Havemann's insight:

Video may have killed the radio star, but what were the implications for live music? I'm not sure equating classroom with radio and internet with music video is telling us that much about what is going on in Higher Education. There is a meme circulating that suggests that HE is 'now' being disrupted by technology and must adapt - but HE has been innovating in the area of distance, blended and flexible modes for many years. The nature of the current disruption, for me, is not really about online or offline, but about the offering of free courses online that are apparently in competition with expensive courses both on and offline. This is not simply about HE adapting to the internet - it also begs the question of whether HEIs are serving their own interests, those of (would-be) 'students', of their actual students, or of corporate platform providers, in participating in this type of provision. After all, somebody has to pay for these courses which are costly to develop and teach - and if they are not then what is being cut? If what we are talking about is teacherless courses then as a 'consumer', you might say, it is OK value for the nothing you paid.

Open Educational Practices
Open learning has been a hot topic in learning technology circles for some time, between the movements for open educational resources (OER) and open courseware (OCW) and open access (OA) to research and data. Lately, MOOCs have got people talking about open online learning but these are an evolution, not a revolution, in the ongoing opening of educational practices.

COVERING THE COST | Student PIRGs

COVERING THE COST | Student PIRGs | Open Educational Practices | Scoop.it
Over the last decade, the price of college textbooks has soared. Since 2006, the cost of a college textbook increased by 73% - over four times the rate of inflation. Today, individual textbooks often cost over $200, sometimes as high as $400.

That’s why, more than a decade ago, the Student PIRGs launched our campaign for textbook affordability to call attention to high prices and to highlight potential solutions to the problem.
