What 4,500 Professors and Administrators Think About Online Learning

What 4,500 Professors and Administrators Think About Online Learning | Digital Learning, Technology, Education | Scoop.it

Three important takeaways about the current state of this growing trend.

Fifty-eight percent of faculty surveyed feel pessimistic about online education. Administrators, on the other hand, are overwhelmingly excited about teaching students over the Internet, with more than 80 percent indicating their optimism. It’s easy to see why: Online education programs are a revenue stream for cash-strapped schools. At the same time, they redefine the professor’s role in a way that may be difficult for some teachers to accept.

An infographic I created for a MOOC at Stanford: Designing New Learning Environments. Made with too little space, too little skills, too little time and too little research. Lots of fun though.

Kirsten Wilson's curator insight, June 19, 2013 11:26 AM

Interesting take on a few forms of curation that can be used.  Infographic is, as the creator remarked, a little crowded, however the information is useful.

Begoña Iturgaitz's curator insight, June 19, 2013 12:22 PM

Participants include Dennis Cromwell of Indiana University, Joy Hatch of Virginia Community College System, Thomas Hoover of University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Joanne Kossuth of Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering and Kirk Moore of the University of Colorado Colorado Springs.
