From OPM to AI - 0 views

    "The new university/company AI partnership model will resemble the current online program management model, in which the AI company de-risks the AI investment with up-front capital and resources, and is paid by a revenue share."

How Online Can Save Small, Private Colleges from Going Under - 0 views

  •  
    "One strategy for these colleges to avoid extinction is to diversify-to avoid a precarious reliance on residential students. And one way to do that is by adding online programs to the mix. The challenge for many small colleges is that they see online courses as at odds with their very identity. After all, these institutions embrace intimacy as central to their mission, with close, mentoring relationships between faculty and students, and deep, comradely connections among students-essential ingredients of highly engaged learning. For many, online fails to meet these crucial education ambitions. Instead, they reject virtual instruction as alienated learning, with isolated faculty and students coldly facing inert computer screens-not one another."

The LMS "Manages Learners," But Business Needs More - 1 views

  •  
    ""Begin today by rising up from the limitations of learning. Refocus on the jobs that workers are actually doing, and help them to do the jobs they want to be doing, better. Make digital resources rather than courses your default, and put the content your workers need to do their jobs into your technology systems so that you can influence everyday performance.""

The Race Against Digital Darwinism: The Six Stages of Digital Transformation | Brian So... - 0 views

  •  
    "One of the key insights I learned in the process was that mature companies establish purpose to create the kind of holistic alignment that inspires and drives enterprise-wide change. I consistently found that customer experience (CX) often served as a primary catalyst for driving change with CMOs and CIOs helping them come together to jointly lead common efforts."

What I Learned from Trying to Innovate at the New York Times - 0 views

  •  
    "Organizations that pursue strategies like these have what I call the Ecosystem Mindset. All startups have it, while almost no big companies do. It's an understanding that your organization is not a bounded entity, complete unto itself, but part of a wider ecosystem. It comes with an implicit understanding that the solutions to your key challenges are not all inside the building, but are out there - and that you must locate and interact with them to thrive."

The Journalist and the Troll: Benjamin Wey Spent Two Years Trying to Destroy Me Online - 0 views

  •  
    "In addition to all the lies, the story was laced with creepy sexual imagery: I'd had my "panties ripped off" and was like "a dog wagging her tail trying to attract a mating partner." I felt overwhelmed; it was as if something heavy were pressing into my forehead. I wanted to fight back, and I also wanted to hide. I haven't been able to do either."

The Language Barrier Is About to Fall - 0 views

  •  
    "Machine translation is leaps and bounds faster and more effective than my old dictionary method, but it still falls short in accuracy, functionality and delivery. That won't be the case for long. A decade from now, I would predict, everyone reading this article will be able to converse in dozens of foreign languages, eliminating the very concept of a language barrier."

Mindfulness Can Literally Change Your Brain - 1 views

  •  
    "Mindfulness should no longer be considered a "nice-to-have" for executives. It's a "must-have":  a way to keep our brains healthy, to support self-regulation and effective decision-making capabilities, and to protect ourselves from toxic stress. It can be integrated into one's religious or spiritual life, or practiced as a form of secular mental training.  When we take a seat, take a breath, and commit to being mindful, particularly when we gather with others who are doing the same, we have the potential to be changed."

    Chrystal chose to come down on the side of internal development. "We want to do in-house instructional design with our curriculum people, our professors and our production people. We really feel then that we can make quick changes the way we want them. If something doesn't work, we can make the change right now. We don't have to be in line with the four other clients that the company has."

A Weird but True Fact about Textbook Publishers and OER - 1 views

  •  
    " it makes sense for Wiley (the publisher, not the dude) to strike a licensing deal with OpenStax. They're OK about not making a lot of money on the books as long as they can sell their WileyPlus software. Which, in turn, is why I think that Wiley (the dude, not the publisher) is not crazy at all when he predicts that "80% of all US general education courses will be using OER instead of publisher materials by 2018." I won't be as bold as he is to pick a number, but I think he could very well be directionally correct. I think many of the larger publishers hope to be winding down their traditional textbook businesses by 2018."
