If they do that, they’ll see that digital learning needs to become much more mobile, personal and social. .. Mobile content, then, needs to be “bite-sized,” visually stimulating and interactive. … Taking a cue from Twitter and LinkedIn, education online also needs to do a better job leveraging peer interaction and collaboration. … mixes short videos and frequent assessments with facilitated group projects, asynchronous collaboration and innovative tools designed specifically to drive participation.

Indeed a misleading title and intro. After that it reads as a convincing look into the near future, where the best online learning experiences will be extremely expensive to produce and offered by commercial universities and publishers.

This talks about different types of learning and how our generation uses digital learning to obtain knowledge instead of using books. It also talks about how education needs to link peers together in order to further them in their learning. This relates because it is trying to make people feel the need to learn again instead of just memorizing information and letting it go when it's no longer needed.

Artikkelin kirjoittaja pohtii, miksi niin monet ilmoittautuvat online-kursseille, mutta joko jättävät kurssin kesken tai eivät edes aloita sitä. Yksi syy hänen mukaansa on se, että kurssit ovat samoja vanhoja - vain siirrettynä digitaaliseen muotoon. “education lags 30 years behind most of the world, and 50 years behind Silicon Valley.” Kursseissa ei oteta huomioon sen kummemmin teknologian kuin sen käyttäjien muuttumista viimeisinä vuosina.  Lainaus puhuu puolestaan.

Hän tekee myös ehdotuksia asioista, joihin pitäisi kiinnittää huomiota ja joita pitäisi muuttaa, jotta tämän sukupolven digitaalisen median käyttäjät saataisiin innostumaan online-kursseista ja opiskelusta. Mielenkiintoista luettavaa.
