Memo to higher ed: get ready for remote learning to rock your world

Memo to higher ed: get ready for remote learning to rock your world | Learning and Teaching Innovations | Scoop.it
Despite ongoing debate about the effects of online learning, a report from the Pew Internet and American Life Project and Elon University shows that a majority of technology stakeholders expect it to transform higher education by 2020.


In a report released today, Pew and Elon University said that 60 percent of internet experts, researchers, observers and users polled said they agreed that by 2020, “there will be mass adoption of teleconferencing and distance learning to leverage expert resources … a transition to ‘hybrid’ classes that combine online learning components with less-frequent on-campus, in-person class meetings.” By comparison, 39 percent endorsed the contrary position that “in 2020 higher education will not be much different from the way it is today.”

California's multi-million dollar online education flop is another blow for MOOCs - The Hechinger Report | Learning and Teaching Innovations | Scoop.it
“Reinvent.” That was the giddy catchword of a plan by the University of California to create an all-digital “campus” that would revolutionize higher education by providing courses online for students shut out of the system’s brick-and-mortar classrooms at a time of high demand but falling budgets. Three years later, the Online Instruction Pilot Project has …

Dirk Mast's curator insight, May 29, 2014 10:36 PM

MOOC's can still succeed, but need to be modified from the ground up, not from the top down. Gathering detailed input from users and analyzing their preferences, needs, education, demographics, budget, age and gender can drive the changes necessary to make the open source online education work. Long ago, I discovered that something free is credited with little value. Figuring out what the market will bear, what students need will move MOOC's in the right direction. The other issue, and a pet peeve with me, is the (mostly) poor quality of the videos and presentations. A better quality product is needed.

 

And, watch out MOOC's,

Oculus Rift is poised to take over!

Game Changers: Education and Information Technologies is a collection of chapters and case studies contributed by college and university presidents, provosts, faculty, and other stakeholders. Institutions are finding new ways of achieving higher education’s mission without being crippled by constraints or overpowered by greater expectations.
