Increasing difficulty...• Week 1: What was the mistake made by the German Enigmaoperators that allowed Alan Turing to craft a strategy to break codedGerman messages?• Week 5: When do wireless devices receive their serial numbers (i.e.MAC or Ethernet addresses)?• Week 8: How does your computer typically know the public key of acertificate authority during secure communications?
  32. 32. My Thoughts on #IHTS
  33. 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. 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. 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. 36. Community TeachingAssistants• Volunteer students from prior sessions• Culture forms very rapidly• Questions answered quicklyMauro - ItalyMazen - EgyptMegan - UK Susan - PA Karen - NCSue - CA
  37. 37. If we want we can also communicate in our own language in this thread.

  41. 41. Is this New?
  42. 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. 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
