  • 3 mins#1 = Access and distribution capability that ICT offers and that involves extending the reach of high quality education for all. ICT can help HE broaden its reach physically and virtually. Digital technologies are well adapted to achieving economies of scale, not just to enrich existing practices but to bring benefits to underserved segments of HE population, most of whom are excluded today from HE experience.  #2 = New generation of students are bringing with them new set of expectations for how they will engage and learn. Content must be adapted to align with the dynamic life and workstyle of students.  Richer more interactive. Virtual tours that can make math and science as stimulating and real-world based as arts and humanities tend to be.  Providing teachers with the sorts of design tools that would allow them to craft more participative course and classroom experiences. For example, we at MS will soon be launching a product in this area. Think of it as a computer aided design tool for teachers and publishers.If we use tech just as a new mode of transmission we have failed.But ICT is not just a tool for distribution and transmission, it really lights up only if it is seen in academia as a tool for learning and understanding. This means ICT as a tool for Improved Insight on learning outcomes being achieved and new approaches to pedagogy that are demonstrating potential – such as asynchronous instruction and collaboration.  Move from “tell-practice-test” to Dewey’s notion of “experiential learning”.  Theory has been around since early in the 20th century but the active style of learning that is commonly accepted as the better way is yet to adapt technology to suit its needs. As teaching becomes more data-driven, we see this third area emerging as a key differentiator for institutions that move quickly to embrace a more evidence-based pedagogy and approachThe fourth area - communities of learning - is becoming more and more familiar to this audience through initiatives like OER.  We fully support OER. Of course material available today is generally low-fi and not necessarily fit for purpose. Some of it could even be construed as more marketing tool than pedagogical device. There is a lot of content. It’s hard to sort. There is no ranking. You cannot annotate or thread a discussion at relevant point. And you cannot pick and choose sections of greatest relevance. All of that will change. The publishers are under tremendous pressure. Simulations is one very promising subset that we think will emerge as early popular segmentFinally, as institutions seek to differentiate their offer on either cost of quality (or both) they will need to leverage the economies of scale that ICT affords them. For low-cost providers this means taking advantage of ICT services, often available to the institution at no cost. For those stressing quality and superior outcomes ICT department will leverage services and for different reasons, retaining those elements of their infrastructure that afford them advantage and outsourcing those that do not. Using more of their time to act as stewards of technology-enabled teaching and learning practices among faculty and the student body and sustaining innovation in use of ICT
