  • 113. Youdon’thaveonecourse of 250
    … youhave 250 courses of one.
    #1
  • 114. Youshould be concernedwhenyourdesertionrateis 40%.
    …Thatis. Ifyouenrol 1000 studentsintoan 8 semesterprogram. Only 28 will be at thegraduationceremony.
    …Oneout of 40 students.
    #1
  • 115. Big Mistake #2
    #2
  • 116. #2
    BelievingthatVirtual Education=Mysterious and ComplexEducation
  • 117. Thereis no mystery in connectingsomeonewhowantstolearn and someonewhowantstoteach.
    …Givethemthetools. They’ll do themagic.
    #2
  • 118. Thereis a myththatgoesaround: A goodtraditionalteacherwillnoteasilybecome a good virtual teacher.
    ...False. A goodteacheris a goodteacherwithanytool.
    …Unlessyouthinkthata «good» virtual teacher = a good actor.
    #2
  • 119. A halo of complexity and mysteryisalwaysconvenienttocreatean elite groupwithintheschoolfor virtual education.
    …We are transferringthevices and bureaucracy of oldeducationtothe new scenery.
    …Welcometothe new and improvedvirtual inferno of politics and intrigue.

  • 120. Big Mistake #3
    #3
  • 121. #3
    PuttingTechnologybeforePedagogy
  • 122. Aneducationalsystemlogicshouldbe as follows:
    Student ◄ Teacher◄ Materials ◄ Technology
    …Technologyisthetoolthathelpstheteachercreatematerialsto share withthestudent
    …Technologyshould be the bridge thatallowstheteacher – studentinteraction.
    #3
  • 123. Butthe real systemusuallyworkslikethis:
    Student◄ Materials ◄ Technology ◄ Teacher
    …Teachersbecomesubordinates of technologywhichdictatesthewaytheyshouldtellthestory.
    …Seehowfartheteacheris. Probablythatiswhytheycallit “distance” education.

  • 124. Big Mistake #4
    #4
  • 125. #4
    UnderestimatingyourTeachers and Students
  • 126. Someschoolshavedeveloped a virtual educationsystem, butitis a closedsystem.
    …Closedtocriticism, closedtoexperimentation, closedtoinnovation
    #4
  • 127. Standardization and modularity are the dogma.
    …Teacherscannotmovefreelyoutsidepredeterminedpaths.
    …Neither do students.
    #4
  • 128. Studentsreceivepredesigned “objects”, “packages”, “modules”. Notcourses.
    …A packageistheproduct of a designer. A courseisanunpredictable and single eventhostedbyaneducator.
    …A module ispredetermined, a courseiscontingent.
    Likethecourse of a river.

  • 130. #5
    TakingtheFunout of Education

    …Educationwastransformedintoan industrial process.
    #5
  • 132. Educationshouldbe accidental, unpredictable, unscripted.
    …Thereisplenty of room in virtual educationforspontaneity.
    …Students and teachershould be encouragedtotakerisks.
    #5
  • 133. #5
    Allcoursescannotbestructuredthesameway.
    …Uniformity and homogeneity can notbepart of a humanprocess.
    …Doing, thinking, watching, analizing, proposing, building: thesameingredientscannot be equallyformulatedforallcourses.
    …Somecourses are intensive in communication, some in reading, some in autoevaluation, some in theory, some in practice.
    …Theonlyconstantforallcoursesisthegenuinedesire of bothteachers and studentstointeract and havefun.
  • 134. #5
    Someschools are searchingforthe “formula” for virtual education. Forthemould of theperfectcourse.
    …”Virtualizing” a subject of studyshouldnotkillitscharm.
