Notes of 5 disruptive forces in higher education lecture
Scott, Thoughts on #CFHE12
The following are lecture notes from a lecture by Jeff SelingoHe started out by talking about 1999-2009. He called it "decade of more". Over the last decade colleges have increased tuition & program offering. With the huge increase in attendance their was little desire to keep tuition down. Institutions took on institutional debt (US Colleges/Universities have $307B in debt). Students were willing to go to&... [Link] 2012-10-10T14:00:00.001-07:00 [Comment]

Most of the papers missed the mark: My thoughts on MOOCs
Scott, Thoughts on #CFHE12
As the conversation around Massively Open Online Courses, commonly called MOOCs, moves from hype to reality, it appears that substantial changes in higher education are imminent. The online teaching of knowledge in an asynchronous way is no longer an impossibility, and indeed several highly publicized metastudies have established that learning outcomes in well-designed environments can be at least as significant as traditional face-to-face learning. What is distinctive about ... [Link] 2012-10-10T13:16:00.002-07:00 [Comment]

Starting out new MOOC: Current / Future State of Higher Education
Phil Hill, Thoughts on Educational Technology and Change
After my partial completion of the Coursera xMOOC – Internet History Technology and Security by Dr. Chuck – it’s time to directly try out a cMOOC. While I’m interested in the subject, I’m just as interested in the experience of both types of MOOCs. #CFHE12   [Link] Wed, 10 Oct 2012 00:56:12 +0000 [Comment]

Mass Drivers in Higher Education – How a Pun Became An Analogy
Jason Green, þoht-hord
I was struck as I read the UNESCO document by the references to massification . I see the need to increase capacity and educate more people as the primary driver of higher education change. For a long time, higher education was the … Continue reading → [Link] Tue, 09 Oct 2012 21:21:43 +0000 [Comment]

Week 1 of #CFHE12
Apostolos K. ("AK"), Multilitteratus Incognitus
Well, another 6 week MOOC started this week, CFHE12 (which I keep wanting to spell a CHFE12 for some reason) with George Siemens. This seems quite interesting, and it gives me an opportunity to check out the D2L environment in action, considering that our campus could have been a D2L campus, but we went with Blackboard instead.In any case, one of the first things for this week is to introduce yourself in the forum. I didn't do this because in my experience in massive env... [Link] 2012-10-09T07:00:00.000-04:00 [Comment]

MOOC to the Future
rsebastian, EdTech@VCCS
