Future of Education and Online Learning

In this Online Education is Everywhere: What is the Next Big Thing?

And while the next online model remains unclear, Southern New Hampshire’s president, Paul J. LeBlanc, has sketched out one possible blueprint in a “thinking paper” that he wrote as a springboard for discussion. It’s called the “Next Big Thing.”

In principle, this is based on an assessment model of education and learning.

There are various education and learning “pathways” that I would envisage in future education:

1. Learning based on the Web x.0 model

So, what is the Next Big Thing?  Is it Web3.0?

2. Learning based on Training or Personal Development – Example: On the job Training and development with the aids of Social Media and Web 2.0 and Web 3.0.  Some of these may be more appropriate for corporate education and training.

See my previous post on Distribution Centre Training relating to how training and assessment could be done on the job.

3. ePortfolio approach to learning and assessment

Education and Development based on e-portfolios and e-portfolio-an assessment tool for online courses could be effective means of education and learning.

4. MOOC approach in offering online and distance education and learning

Adoption of a MOOC approach in the development of courses based on connectivist principles or other pedagogy.  Here is a summary of the principles and courses offered under Massive Open Online Courses  on wikipedia.

What will the future of education look like?
