Online Program Management: A view of the market landscape -e-Literate - 1 views

    "For the vendors, when this model works they get a far higher revenue per student that would have been possible with platforms sales or other fee-for-service approaches. As I described in a post about 2U, that company makes $10k - $15k per student per year, whereas an LMS vendor might make $20 per student per year. While 2U is the high end of the market and not all OPM vendors get that kind of revenue, we are talking about several orders of magnitude difference per student."

A new nonprofit takes aim at ed tech pricing. First target: The iPad - 0 views

  •  
    "Lack of price transparency makes it difficult for school districts to negotiate with vendors, Friedlander said. In the case of Apple's iPads, for instance, the Technology for Education Consortium said it had found that prices ranged from $367 to $499 for identical devices. "This is just wrong," Levy said. "This is taxpayer money. And these are school kids.""

Adios Ed Tech. Hola something else. - 0 views

  •  
    "A curious disconnect has been emerging in my thinking, one that has been made clear with the hype-oriented buzzwords of today's ed tech companies. I no longer want to be affiliated with the tool-fetish of edtech. It's time to say adios to technosolutionism that recreates people as agents within a programmed infrastructure."

    "A POLITICO investigation has found that Pearson stands to make tens of millions in taxpayer dollars and cuts in student tuition from deals arranged without competitive bids in states from Florida to Texas. The review also found Pearson's contracts set forth specific performance targets - but don't penalize the company when it fails to meet those standards. And in the higher ed realm, the contracts give Pearson extensive access to personal student data, with few constraints on how it is used."

8 Best Practices for Moving Courses Online -- Campus Technology - 0 views

    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."

    "Publish or perish" is an old saw that, like so many things in higher education, has been updated to reflect modern wisdom. The revised version of the phrase offers advice not to professors but to colleges: "Partner or perish."
