re: Higher Education Tech Forecast Sees MOOC, Tablet Momentum
One of the trends you mention is Gǣshifting education paradigms that encompass online learning, hybrid learning and collaboration.Gǥ To drill into this more, I believe a crucial component that needs to be part of online education -- now and in the future -- is a strong focus on student-center support services and interaction. In my experience, IGve seen how courses that are highly interactive, engaging, outcomes-based, and even what you could call beautiful, are the ones that help students reach their full potential the best. However, to get there, educational institutions need to overcome one of the obstacles you mention -- Gǣfaculty training does not acknowledge the importance of digital literacy.Gǥ We must turn this around and train faculty so they are well-equipped for teaching in a technology-rich, student-focused online environment. That is a big part of how colleges and universities will stay relevant moving into the next several years.
