  • 32. My Thoughts on #IHTS
  • 33. Be an Introductory Course• We need low-stakes "freshman" courses in Coursera• How to behave• How to use the software• How to write• Figure out technical issues• How to learn from others and help others learn....
  • 34. Be an Open Learning Community• Open Source works well when there is a "Benevolent Dictator"• There needs to be real and enforced rules - but as few as possible• Those in power must not hide behind their power and must sharetheir power with those who show the right behavior• Must make valued behaviors "infectious" / "amplified"
  • 35. Teach the Teachers• I dont beleive that all students in the world should consider me theirteacher in this space• I wrote a "book"- I want others to adopt it and re-mix it• Related to making a "learning community"
  • 36. Community TeachingAssistants• Volunteer students from prior sessions• Culture forms very rapidly• Questions answered quicklyMauro - ItalyMazen - EgyptMegan - UK Susan - PA Karen - NCSue - CA

  • 40. My Thoughts on MOOCs...
  • 41. Is this New?
  • 42. July 2012Feb 2013Jun 2013Oct 2013Is there abusiness model?Coursera is approaching 4 MillionStudents - Just over a year4 million users x 5% = 200,000 paying200,000 x $50 = $10,000,000$2,500,000 to universities$500,000 to faculty7,000 active students, 407 signature track407 * $40 = $16,280$16,280 x 5% = $814

  • 53. A Few Predictions• Online "continuation" Masters degrees have a limited lifetime• For-profit undergraduate online programs will become very niche• Residential schools must leverage being together - do more• Remedial / preparation / just in time / continuing ed / professionaldevelopment - wil be free an high quality• Truly democratizing education will happen - but require re-commitment to open educatonal resources and remixable resources
