  • Personalization of learning, a transformation desired by project developers, was obstructed by the homogenizing effects of efforts to monitor individual student progress toward state content standards. What is the greatest possible benefit of technology in a learning environment? Personalization. Personalization involves system-wide data analysis and use at a decision-making level to accelerate learning for each student. The pace of education needs to increase to account for differentiation of instruction and educators' ability to identify learning strengths and challenges for students. Educators need to take daily action based on this information. We cannot do this without embedding skillful use of technology in our plan.

  • Steve Weinstein, an analyst who tracks Amazon and other Internet commerce sites for Portland's Pacific Crest, predicted that Amazon's global e-book sales could hit $2.5 billion by 2012. He estimates that the company sold 40,000 units a month this year at its original price of $399 (the price was recently reduced to $359, including wireless charges) and could sell between 700,000 and 800,000 by the end of 2008. The Kindle's influence is starting to reverberate across the publishing industry. Shortly after Bezos spoke in Los Angeles in May, at Book Expo America, the publishing house Simon & Schuster Inc. announced it will digitize 5,000 more titles by the end of the year - more than it did during the previous decade. Earlier this year, Penguin Group announced plans to digitize its back catalog of 16,000 titles within two years.

In WI students study from home with Aventa hardware and their participating local districts, such as Waukesha, supplying the teaching personnel. the project is funded through state ADA subsidy funds for each student. results show iQ Academy kids perform as well on state tests as their bricks/mortar counterparts.

  • Not necessarily new technology – some like IQ-ity and Studywiz came out of state-sponsored initiatives and are now being productized and commercialized
  • Everything from VOIP to 3 rd party product delivery
  • Compatibility – does your stuff play well with others’? Pedagogy Software architecture Business models Mix’n’match – schools not necessarily buying the whole anchilada Platform intermediation – role of platform vendor in the relationship you have with customers Support – service businesses need more support Auditing – verifying usage and sales
  • Back to the 30,000 foot level, what more are we learning about open source and 2.0 business models ? A quick look at these issues – Open Content: Failure to Thrive? NROC: Nat'l Repository of Online Courses (MITE) Open API opportunities: Facebook EdNET's LinkedIn Social Network Auditing
  • Why hasn’t OS been more successful so far? Open Educational Resources (OER) Commons, supported by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, has asked Esther Wojcicki to look into why their OS content is getting so little usage. From her findings and others’ Inconsistent Quality Limited Coverage Limited Standardization Weak Alignment Weak (or no) Marketing/Sales Weak (or no) Customer service, support Weak (or no) PD
  • Let’s take a quick look at a very interesting OS-product business model that responds to these issues
  • Courseware for Higher ed, HS and AP OER Courses free to individual users and teachers Non-profit initially supported by Hewlett Fdn. Distributed via Hippocampus which correlates content to major textbooks. Over a million page views since launch last fall. Courses contributed by academic institutions originally created for "local use" from academic institutions, state agencies, school districts Big chunks from U CA AP courseware project, UT, CO, TN. Incentive for source institutions: NROC will invest in, maintain, make it available Editorial investment/productizing editorial accuracy, learning module structure, assessments, problem sets, teachers guides. For example, US History course has 270 (sequencable) modules, assessments, problem sets Income from Institutions Institutions join a fee-based membership organization, the NROC Network $3k-100k/year for a package of wrap-around value-adds. Now about 70-80 members in Network. Value proposition for institutions : -- high-quality content in full-course sets -- compatibility with leading LMS/CMS systems such as Blackboard, Angel Learning, Moodle, Sakai -- customizable delivery site -- ASP/SAAS hosting -- content correlation and alignment to k-12 standards of 49 states parallel value propositions for two stakeholder constituencies Goal is to be financially self-sustainable. Now 70% there and hopes to reach 100% in 09 Individuals – free high quality courseware Institutions – paying (some resemblance to TV advertisers funding free programming) Also some deals with vendors (e.g., Aventa for resale, tutoring)
  • TeachersPayTeachers.com. In late April, we launched a brand new website with a revised subscription model that now allows teachers to join for free as sellers if they choose. From that day on, activity has spiked considerably.
  • Now let’s move to another important trend in web business models – open APIs (application program interface), sometimes called widgets, gadgets API = Set of routines, protocols and tools for building software applications that interface or “ride upon” other software systems (e.g., Word for Windows) Often proprietary, shared judiciously with partners or not at all Open APIs invite others to make use of the underlying system to grow its traffic and value Let’s look at how Facebook is using open APIs
  • Why Facebook? Isn’t it a social net for teenagers? Explosive growth, lots more older users – including me Last month, according to comScore , Facebook had 123.9 million unique visitors and 50.6 billion page views worldwide. Facebook, which has over 80 million subscribers worldwide, doubled the number of subscribers under 35 last year, but it tripled the number of subscribers between 35 and 54
  • A for-profit open content service which has served hundreds of thousands of college students with its web-based homework problem solutions "community" Started about 5 years ago, based in Pasadena, now has about 105 employees four principal segments of the community: students, teachers, parents, experts, with a value proposition for each "freemium" business model – students - mainly in math and science courses, who have free access an online archive of problem solutions organized by subject, course and textbook, or, for problems not in the archive, can ask for help by posting their problem on a community message board Paying subscribers have priority access for use of the archive, message board and the priority given to responding to their posts. Why the Facebook hookup? Marketing. Cramster competed to develop a personal course schedule calendar for Fb users. Note textbook ISBN field and “connect with other members using your same textbook!”
  • Moving towards web 2.0 and open source compatibility (opened Bb APIs) Increased compatibility w open source LMS platforms (e.g., Moodle and Sakai) and with their own Web CT, a competitor which Bb acquired "Mash-up" capabilities - allows incorporation of web-based material from outside Bb, such as from Google Earth and NetTrekker, in Bb-based course materials Allows student info from Bb to be "pushed" into Facebook, such as info on assignments and projects Allows students to set up "social learning spaces" such as project groups on Fb Blackboard for iPhone
  • Living in a social network has its risks – Joel Bradshaw - Smooth sailing so far, and very well done! Akshay Joshi - Doesn't work Andrew McCallister - Can't get it to work Abhishek M - It synced. But still issues are there. But these risks exist whether or not you’re there
  • We’re expanding in B2B SN to make some of EdNET’s value proposition available to attendees year round Our first initiative is a private group on LinkedIn - LinkedIn a year ago 10 million members growing at a rate of over 130,000 members a week, with 14 new members joining each minute and.
  • A display of the member roster – with photos of many
  • Mark Stevens Bruce Wilcox Andy Kaplan… none of them in my direct network What else do you get? Connecting with your networks’ contacts (my connections: 40; their connections: 5,800+; my network: 501,000+) primary research (e.g., asking questions to groups) using LinkedIn tools for Microsoft Outlook via downloadable tool bars that offer a host of useful email management functions (e.g., automatically creating a record for your Outlook contacts database from the info in a selected email; telling you if the sender of an email is in your network and, if so, at what degree of closeness; etc.), and, personnel recruiting
