Five Ways Free Online Classes Will Change College, or Not | LinkedIn - 0 views

  • Coursera, is barely a year old and already has 2.5 million students, 215 courses, and 33 college and university partners.

  • MOOCs can reduce those numbers if some students could take MOOCs to brush up on what they don’t know well enough before they get to college, for free and with little risk.

  • MOOCs are likely to provide the best content for introductory courses, at least at first.
  • Eventually, MOOCs will put bundle together a few courses into a curriculum that will lead to a certificate equal to what colleges are now charging thousands of dolars for.
  • Colleges are still concerned with students coming to campus with too many credits earned elsewhere. Some, like Dartmouth, want to be sure students get the full campus experience, others want to protect their bottom line and be sure they get tuition dollars for as many courses as they can.

    I grabbed an opportunity to travel to an EXPO in Dunedin where I met up with a teacher who I had met the past year and he was Tweeting. He asked me for my Twitter name and I looked at him blankly as I believed that Twitter was just plain stupid and who cares what I had for breakfast or other dumb things that Twitter users tweet about. He explained that I was wrong and that he just keeps in contact with other teachers that he knows, but does not get to physically see that often. Then through the WiFi I downloaded the Twitter App on my phone and @dukelyer was born.
