Align them with local labor market opportunities and make sure they’re stackable toward a higher degree.

New Directions for Higher Education: Q&A with Trachtenberg on Three-Year Degrees | Quality Learning and HE | Scoop.it

"Too many of us in the academy run our disciplines like Soviet factories. We want to make a certain product and we want the world to consume our product, rather than looking at the world and saying what product it needs and then applying ourselves to providing an answer to society’s issue." Former George Washington University president on the importance of alternative models for degree completion.

How to OverCome learner disengagement in online learning courses?

How to OverCome learner disengagement in online learning courses? | Quality Learning and HE | Scoop.it
Very often, organizations find that there are no takers for their eLearning courses. Why? We need to first understand who the target users of eLearning courses are. We called them trainees, learners, and end-users – all these terms indicate receptors of information, knowledge or skills. It means there is a giver of knowledge and a receptor of knowledge. The giver of knowledge is calling the shots. This is something like the sellers’ market in the early industrial age. Markets have witnessed changes, since then, and the same is true for the learning and training domain as well. We need to re-look at the way we see our learners. They are no longer at the mercy of their trainer. They have a variety of options before them to gain knowledge. So, how do you ensure they buy your eLearning courses (buy in the sense not literally, but investing time to complete your eLearning courses)?

Changing Society Without Taking Power | P2P Foundation

Changing Society Without Taking Power | P2P Foundation | Quality Learning and HE | Scoop.it

“It is important to understand Holloway’s brilliant double entendre “taking power.” Taking power is not just the taking “of” state power but the collective power of society’s hierarchical structure to “take” – appropriate – the commonly created wealth, including the commons of the natural world. The capitalist economic system controls not just the means of production – labor – but the means of survival, i.e. food, shelter, information, safety, community etc.

Jocelyn Stoller's curator insight, November 18, 1:39 PM

Caveats: Students need to NOT be pressured into an economic mold—it destroys motivation , curiosity and love of learning (science shows that these are the basis for life-long mental resilience). People learn at their own pace and have individual processing modes. It is vital for our future to nurture instrinsic motivation in the next generation.

The emergence of dynamic ownership | P2P Foundation

The emergence of dynamic ownership | P2P Foundation | Quality Learning and HE | Scoop.it
Reddit’s CEO, Yishan Wong (formerly of Facebook) is doing the right thing. He’s planning to make Reddit’s users into owners, depending on their contribution to the site. There’s a way to create a form of liquid ownership that doesn’t require Wall Street. This new method is based on the bitcoin blockchain. That technology makes it possible to issue ownership to contributors in a decentralized and trusted way. The combination of blockchain stock, Yishan’s example, and the experience of participants will set in motion a wave of change in Silicon Valley. The message is: if you want to build an online company, you better find a way to make your customers/contributors owners.*
