    • How the Internet is Revolutionizing Education Made by Olia Voronchagina and Alexandr Kapustkin
    • • April 2001:Charles M. Vest announced that the university would make its materials for all its courses freely available on the Internet • April 2006, UC Berkeley announced its plan to put complete academic courses on Apple’s iTunes U • October 2007, the school launched UC Berkeley on YouTube “Learning is not a product of schooling but the lifelong attempt to acquire it.” Albert Einstein The school has had well over 120 million downloads since first sharing videos online
    • Benjamin Hubbard, the Manager of Webca Reasons why faculty should publish lectures online:• For students to have access to materials • For cultivating a really great affinity for a public university • For providing educational resources all over the world “It’s so important that we recognize as a public institution that this is something people value greatly and has great value for us too”
    • The Web has unlocked the keys to a worldwide virtual school, potentially leveling the playing field for students around the world
    • Knowledge should be open to all to both use and contribute to. It’s this intuitive philosophy that forms the base of The Open Education Movement, which has been gaining momentum since 2006, the same year Dr. Dan Colman, launched Open Culture. It is the greatest free cultural and educational media website, it was edited by Colman. Open Culture “I’m trying to bring the best good ideas to the rest of the w There currently exists too much of a between the university world and the general pu Dr. Dan Colman
    • • it acts as a portal, collecting external links so users are able to access materials directly from the distributor The site has two dimensions: • it includes blog-style content with 2-3 posts a day of handpicked media bites
    • Open Culture features over 350 courses in its collection: links to epic TED Talks, over 380 high quality streams of classic movies and tens of thousands of hours of audio book material
    • It is an online collection featuring over 2,100 educational videos ranging in intensity from 1+1=2 to college level calculus and physics. It includes an important recording feature; every time you work on a problem or watch a video, the site remembers what you’ve learned and where you’re spending your time. Khan Academy
    • It is working its way up to being the Hulu of academic videos and courses. Academic Earth features the videos on their site, as opposed to pushing you directly to iTunes if it’s available. Academic Earth
    • John Britton spent his first year at RPI studying nuclear engineering, then switched to computer science. He spent the next year in Spain learning the local language and customs, he spent another year abroad in China; 3 months in Beijing and 9 months in Hong Kong. At the end of it all, with one semester left, he dropped out. He now has $60,000 in loans. P2PU “I don’t like school. It’s why I’m working on starting my own” John Britton
    • Britton now works with the founders of P2PU, Philipp Schmidt, Delia Browne, Stian Haklev, Neeru Paharia and Joel Thierstein P2PU started in 2008 and launched its first 6 peer-based, free courses on 09/09/09. The courses had 15-20 people enrolled for 6 weeks. Each subsequent cycle, the number of courses nearly doubled. The most recent, 4th cycle had 60 courses with 20 people in each course. P2PU had to turn down nearly 17,000 additional people who applied.
    • Skillshare is a community marketplace that enables users to learn anything from anyone. The founder of it is Michael Karnjanaprakorn Skillshare “Human communities depend upon a diversity of talent not a singular conception of ability.” Sir Ken Robinson
    • Scitable It is a free science social network with a peer-reviewed on library built on top of it. The network, which launched in 2009, is a product of the Nature Publishing Group, one of the largest, most prestigious science publishers in the world. It’s dedicated to encouraging students to take part in science education and science in general, which is a huge problem today.
    • Skype’s Role ”We created Skype in the Classroom to help like-minded teachers collaborate on projects and share resources. Skype can connect children globally for shared learning experiences and is low-cost and simple to use” Jacqueline Botterill Skype’s global platform and massive user adoption makes it one of the most influential technologies in changing the reach of education. Jacqueline Botterill leads Skype’s CSR (corporate/social responsibility) initiatives for Skype in Europe. Skype in the Classroom, which launched March 30th, 2010, is one of the company’s first forays into the education sphere.
    • Teach the World Online is using Skype to give young students in Haiti and Cambodia access to English teachers. The News Literacy Program is also using Skype so journalists can give guest lectures to students all over the world on how to sort fact from fiction in the digital age. At the moment, Skype is speaking with a number of different organizations that are trying to level the playing field of access to education.
    • But can the Internet really replace higher education?Education is a bubble in a classic sense Education is basically extremely overpriced If you borrowed money and went to a college where the education didn’t create any value, that is potentially a really big mistake Peter Thiel Education is going to move away from antiquated accreditation systems
    • Likewise, innovators such as John Britton, Sir Ken Robinson and Mike K of Skillshare, see the future of education as something of a necessary revolution, thriving on the powers of
    • “I think courses on the Internet are a great way to continue learning and to acquire new information and new knowledge, but they only partially address furthering education. An education is more than just passively listening to lectures.”Dr. Dan Colman, Editor of Open Cultur The Internet alone won’t be able to replace higher education. We need a better integration between the videos we’re capturing in the classroom and the experience learners have when interacting in a social context. Online, you don’t get that same sort of feedback.
