There’s been a real acceleration in the last few years BUT I wouldn’t say I know of a single institution that I think is moving fast enough
What you’re seeing is the modularisation of the whole process of gaining a degree qualification
What are students learning from one another in a dining hall, doing community service, doing an internship, from their room mates?
i think in the edtech world moocs is a dirty word. It’s only in the edtech world, in the consumer world moocs are still a nice world when you go to normal people
96% of all university presidents believe that they had the right skilled people graduating from their colleges, but only 11% of students believe the same..

Next up, a word from ClassCentral which if you’re into geeking out over online learning and MOOC reports like I am you’ll probably already know about!
This is an easy one for me as I regularly use Glisser at events because I frankly find it a bit WEIRD when there are people staring at you but you ignore them! Glisser is an audience engagement platform, and they also have an education offer for socialising lectures where they take regular PowerPoint or Keynote presentations and push each slide out live to student’s mobile devices as they are presented. Professors, administrators and students get valuable data on where information is really engaging, or needs reworking and staff and students can interact through the deck. You can check them out at https://www.glisser.com/student-engagement/

The Edtech Podcast supports the mission of WomenEd: #WomenEd is a grassroots movement which connects existing and aspiring leaders in education. Even though women dominate the workforce across all sectors of education there still remain gender inequalities, particularly at senior leadership level. The situation regarding BME leadership is even more dire considering the fact that the student population is becoming increasingly diverse. This situation is clearly unacceptable and rapid change is needed. #WomenEd will therefore campaign and use its collective power to make improvements, so that there is a more equitable balance in terms of gender and ethnicity at leadership level across all sectors of education. http://www.womened.org/
