The Global Future of Education at 5.5 Inches

And that future is mobile learning and competency based credentialing. The population of Africa today is a bit over a 1.1 billion. The media age of African's is 18, and over 435 million African’s are less than 15 years old. By 2100 the African population could grow to 4 billion, during which time Africa will enjoy a demographic dividend of rapidly lowering mortality, declining fertility, longer life spans, and a growing and productive workforce. Hundreds of millions of people in Africa will follow the same trajectory of rising expectations, urbanization, and educational attainment that we have seen in East Asia. Africa will never be able to build enough postsecondary institutions to keep up with the demand. The solution will be found in mobile learning. The same story that I just told for Africa will happen (more quickly) in East and South Asia.

Photo If any institution is equipped to handle questions of strategy, it is Harvard Business School, whose professors have coined so much of the strategic lexicon used in classrooms and boardrooms that it’s hard to discuss the topic without recourse to their concepts: Competitive advantage.

Business School, Disrupted

Disruptive innovation. The value chain. But when its dean, Nitin Nohria, faced the school’s biggest strategic decision since 1924 — the year it planned its campus and adopted the case-study method as its pedagogical cornerstone — he ran into an issue. If a MOOC instructor moves, who keeps the intellectual property rights? @insidehighered. When faculty members move from one institution to the next, so do their courses, but after having spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to prepare those courses to a massive audience, are universities entitled to a share of the rights?

If a MOOC instructor moves, who keeps the intellectual property rights? @insidehighered

The question has so far gone unanswered (though not undiscussed) even at some of the earliest entrants into the massive open online course market, including Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Since MOOC providers have gotten out of the intellectual property rights debate by saying they will honor whatever policy their institutional partners have in place, it falls on the universities to settle the matter. Almost two years after Harvard and MIT jointly launched the MOOC provider edX, Sanjay E.

Sarma, director of digital learning at MIT, said his institution has "figured it out. " "Faculty have always had certain expectations and rights, and we want to respect them," Sarma said.

Online university courses can't change the world alone - opinion - 10 March 2014

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are free, online university-level instruction that anyone can access from anywhere, at least in theory. They have dominated headlines in the sector in recent years. Proponents have made bold claims for a fundamental change in higher education – drastically decreasing price and increasing access. Thomas Friedman, in an article in The New York Times, argued that nothing has greater potential to "lift more people out of poverty" and to "unlock a billion more brains to solve the world's biggest problems". Until recently, the debate has been a fact-free zone. At least in their early stages, these courses are not providing the revolution in access that proponents claim. First, we need to bridge the digital divide. Free exchange: Massive open online forces. A MOOC Platform Based on Engagement.

MOOCs | Feature A MOOC Platform Based on Engagement Eschewing the talking-head approach of mainstream MOOCs, NovoEd stakes its claim on MOOCs that emphasize student-centered learning and collaboration.

A MOOC Platform Based on Engagement

By Greg Thompson11/06/13 One of the biggest criticisms of the type of MOOCs produced by edX, Coursera, and Udacity is that they tend to replicate at scale a centuries-old pedagogy: the sage on the stage. It was not always thus with MOOCs. Now a recent entrant to the MOOC scene, NovoEd, is revisiting the original concept by focusing on student-centered learning. "The problem right now with most MOOCs out there is that they are focusing on the most boring part of education--the talking head and multiple-choice questions," said Saberi, who is currently on leave from Stanford to focus on his startup.

The field of massive-open-online-course providers is becoming crowded. That’s even more so at Stanford University, where Udacity and Coursera, two of the largest providers, got their start. Now there’s a new platform to add to the list. NovoEd, which officially opened on Monday, will begin offering seven courses to the public next week, as well as 10 private courses for Stanford students. Amin Saberi, a Stanford professor and the start-up company’s founder and chief executive, said there’s a key difference between NovoEd and existing MOOC options: peer interaction.

Penn GSE Study Shows MOOCs Have Relatively Few Active Users, With Only a Few Persisting to Course End. Contact: Kat Stein, Exec. Director of Communicationskatstein@gse.upenn.edu / (215) 898-9642 Austin, Texas, December 5, 2013—Emerging data from a University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education (Penn GSE) study show that massive open online courses (MOOCs) have relatively few active users, that user “engagement” falls off dramatically—especially after the first 1-2 weeks of a course—and that few users persist to the course end.

Presented today by Laura Perna and Alan Ruby at the MOOC Research Initiative Conference in Texas, the findings are from the newly established Alliance for Higher Education & Democracy at Penn GSE. The Penn GSE study analyzed the movement of a million users through sixteen Coursera courses offered by the University of Pennsylvania from June 2012 to June 2013. The project aimed to identify key transition points for users – such as when users enter and leave courses – as well as when and how users participate in the courses.

Il flotte encore dans les classes comme une odeur de craie. Même après une bonne quinzaine de plans numériques, le petit crissement n’a pas si souvent laissé place au stylet numérique.

Comment l’école française a-t-elle raté toutes ces révolutions, au point qu’aujourd’hui, de l’avis d’un des consultants les plus au fait de la réalité du terrain, « un tiers des collectivités territoriales ont des établissements équipés où ça fonctionne. Le second tiers a juste besoin de la petite étincelle pour que ça démarre. Et le dernier, lui, a trop de soucis financiers pour y penser». A quoi servent les tablettes à l'école ?
