The Future of College? | TRENDS IN HIGHER EDUCATION | Scoop.it
Minerva is an accredited university with administrative offices and a dorm in San Francisco, and it plans to open locations in at least six other major world cities.

The Alternative Credit Project™: Degree Completion Planning

The Alternative Credit Project™: Degree Completion Planning | TRENDS IN HIGHER EDUCATION | Scoop.it

The Alternative Credit Project™ is a free tool that helps students find low-cost options to get them back back to college to complete degrees & certificates. Last month the American Council on Education launched the Alternative Credit Project Ecosystem. Through this project, students who successfully complete courses in a pool of 111 low-cost or free lower-division general-education online offerings will have a transparent pathway to determine, prior to transferring, whether certain higher education institutions will accept those alternative credit courses. ACE has engaged 40 colleges, universities and systems that all have a strong commitment to access and attainment and that have agreed to accept a large amount, if not all, of the courses in the pool.

Gates Foundation sounds call for stronger higher ed data infrastructure

Gates Foundation sounds call for stronger higher ed data infrastructure | TRENDS IN HIGHER EDUCATION | Scoop.it
To develop a national data strategy that increases breadth and quality while reducing duplication and the burden on institutions and also securing data privacy and security. The data that the Gates Foundation and IHEP focus on are those many schools have already voluntarily begun collecting to better serve their own students. If any of these data requirements become federal policy, however, they will almost certainly mean more work for institutions.

What Higher Education Can Learn from Fitbit

What Higher Education Can Learn from Fitbit | TRENDS IN HIGHER EDUCATION | Scoop.it
Recently, the use of predictive analytics has garnered well-deserved interest and attention in higher education. Colleges and universities are using academic data and profiles (demographics, financial information, and past performance) to approximate risk and identify cohorts of students in need of additional support. In higher education, we know a lot about what students did but very little about what they are doing. We have models to predict outcomes but haven’t yet approached the equivalent of the clickstream data that transformed online advertising. Early analytics efforts are producing meaningful results, but the real transformation will not happen until real-time data on actual student behavior is introduced into the equation.

Feds Plan to Use Accreditation to Produce More Degree Holders | TRENDS IN HIGHER EDUCATION | Scoop.it

Colleges can lead students to education, but since many are unprepared for it or not interested in it, little or no learning happens. That being the case, no real improvements will come about through external pressures like Gainful Employment or accreditation standards. Our great problem is that a high percentage of the people who graduate from high school—the raw material of colleges—are not ready for anything resembling higher education.
