  35. 35. (2) eLearning Why call it “eLearning?”
  36. 36. “eLearning”  “Distance”is about geographic separation.  “eLearning” is about leveraging the unique affordances of digital technologies to support new ways of learning in new spaces. Online, Hybrid, Enhanced 
  37. 37. Ongoing Online Learning Growth Over 83,000 students learn online  each year  eLearning enrollments up more than 41% (Winter 08 – Winter 09)  Growth projections: by 2019, 45% or 71,090 of system FTE will be enrolled in at least 1 online or hybrid course 42
  38. 38. Ongoing Online Learning Growth 45% of all CTC graduates earn 15 or  more credits online or hybrid  23 colleges offer 6 different degrees and certificates online  27 colleges offer an AA degree online  Community and Technical Colleges teach over 80+% of all online [state supported] FTE in WA 43

  40. 40. Why does this growth matter?
  41. 41. Educate More Citizens HECB Master Plan  I.

  43. 43. (3) Open Educational Resources
  44. 44. Why is “Open” Important? Because when we cooperate and share, we  all win – exponentially. Reedʼs Law:Networks grow [in value]  exponentially by the number of nodes. It’s a social justice issue: everyone has  the right to access global knowledge. Institute for the Future whitepaper: Technologies of Cooperation
  45. 45. Definition of OER  Digitized materials, offered freely and openly for educators, students, to use and re-use for teaching, learning and research.
  46. 46. (a few) Open Content Repositories OpenLearn (UK) - DEMO  OCW – MIT (MIT HS)  China Open Resources for Education has  translated 109 MIT OCW courses into Simplified Chinese. Rice Connexions 

  49. 49. Why do we Need Open Textbooks?  The College Board reported that for the 2007 through 2008 academic years each student spent an estimated $805 to $1,229 on college books and supplies… http://www.collegeboard.com/prod_downloads/about/news_info/trends/trends_pricing_07.pdf
  50. 50. Why so urgent? Consider One High  Enrollment Course: English Composition I  37,226 enrollments / year  X $100 textbook  = $3.7 Million + (cost to  students)  What if we looked at 100, 200, 300 high enrollment courses? http://rtnl.files.wordpress.com/2007/01/thinker21.jpg
  51. 51. Hey Higher Ed! We must get rid of our “not invented  here” attitude regarding others’ content move to: quot;proudly borrowed from therequot;  Content is not a strategic advantage  Nor can we (or our students) afford it 
  52. 52. Future of Openness in Education “As uncomfortable a proposition as this  new openness may be for some, I believe it is the future of higher education.” In web 2.0, everything is public & higher education needs to get used to it. David Wiley 2006. Open source, openness, and higher education.
  53. 53. What Happens if we Don’t Change? Functional Possibilities Higher Education Time
  54. 54. How is the fiscal health of your local newspaper? 59
  55. 55. Choices: (1) Open up and leverage global input OR (2) close up shop
  56. 56. Think Big Crazy Ideas…. We could share all of our instructional digital  resources including: courses, textbooks and library resources with the world… and, more important, use global digital materials. We could use common teaching & learning,  student services, and administrative technologies and support services. We could design courses that enable and  encourage students to contribute, change, remix course content.

  60. 60. Parting Thought… Is the network to the point where we can challenge traditional models of pedagogy, publishing, student services, and our existing administrative business processes? If so, what would you change in your department? How would you use digital technologies to help students learn and accomplish their dreams?
