Online Classes May Force Changes at Universities

Online Classes May Force Changes at Universities | university education in Europe | Scoop.it

"U.S. colleges face a "perfect storm" of problems as tuition costs soar, opportunities for graduates sag, and employers complain they cannot find enough workers with key technical skills.  One solution may be found in the growing number and quality of online classes. The digital revolution might transform universities the way the Internet has already changed music, publishing, journalism, retail, and other businesses."

Storytelling with Big Data: Thoughts on VISUALIZED

Storytelling with Big Data: Thoughts on VISUALIZED | university education in Europe | Scoop.it
The event certainly delivered on that promise. With a rapid-fire lineup of 32 speakers over two days, things skewed interestingly—but perhaps not surprisingly—towards the experimental. Or perhaps those are the presentations that made the biggest impact on me among several days of maps, network diagrams, dynamic charts and bubble diagrams.

 

On second thought, I should use the word “experiential” instead of “experimental.” It’s a term that came up many times as the presenters emphasized a need to engage with the audience in order to inform them. Cartogram wall sculptures as prompts for storytelling, generative sound sculptures, personalized place-based network jewelry, and sound from scribbles certainly engaged me. But I’m not sure how much they informed me. I can’t deny that these more abstract examples of data visualization do tell stories—as does art, poetry, dance, and music. Inspirational? Most definitely. But several steps away from data journalism, and outside of my world as the art director of information graphics at Scientific American. And yet these are the examples I’m compelled to share.

Twitter Media Launches Blog To Fight Attrition By Teaching You What To Tweet | TechCrunch

Twitter Media Launches Blog To Fight Attrition By Teaching You What To Tweet | TechCrunch | university education in Europe | Scoop.it

Twitter wants to prove it’s not just for broadcasting the mundane details of your life so it just launched the Twitter Media blog. The site plans to feature great uses of Twitter for “TV, sports, journalism, government, music, movies, social good and beyond.” It joins Google Inside Search and Facebook Stories as another media endeavor designed to help inspire our use of today’s top technologies.

 

Technically the site launched on July 2, but Twitter kept it quiet until now so it could build up some content. Along with end users, the blog is trying to educate the media about how to tap Twitter for interesting content. Posts so far include a deep data analysis of tweets from Wimbledon (Andy Murray’s celebration tweet now has over 92,000 RTs), a visualization of NBA Finals tweets, and the story of a tweeting tightrope walker....

Facing skeptical customers, declining enrollment, an antiquated financial model that is hemorrhaging money, and new kinds of low-cost competition, some U.S. universities and colleges may be going the way of the music and journalism industries.
