David Bebko - When Disruptive Innovation Collide, The Power of Crowdsourced Education

  1. 1. When Disruptive Innovations Collide: The Power of Crowdsourced Education David Bebko CrowdWorks, Inc. david@crowdworksinc.com
  2. 2. Expensive, complicated, centralized, and inaccessible to many… ...more affordable, convenient, simple to use, and accessible Disruptive Innovation. ProductPerformance Time Incumbants nearly always win New entrants nearly always win
  3. 3. “By 2019, 50% of all classes for grades K-12 will be delivered online in some form or fashion” - Clayton Christensen Online Education. ● $55 billion dollar industry, forecasted to double in the next 12 months ● Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have attracted more than 8 million students ● Khan academy videos receive more than 10 million views per month ● > 900 million people have watched a YouTube video with the purpose of learning something ● Harvard Business School has stopped teaching accounting, instead has students take an online course from a Brigham Young University professor ● The average online learner is 34 years old Traditional Blended Web Facilitated Distance
  4. 4. Crowd learning. Purpose is to help learners to achieve their learning objectives. Learning may be academic or non- academic “Teachers” may be academic professionals or subject matter experts Crowd sourcing Online learning Crowdlearning
  5. 5. Web 1.0 offered us text-based learning. Web 2.0 offered us rich media learning. The next wave is peer- to-peer live learning. A worthy category.
  6. 6. Opportunities abound. Crowdlearning can tap into a latent online labor pool of extraordinary magnitude...and skill Developing markets: supply of teachers to meet demand from learners Mature markets: specialization, mass customization, real time bespoke learning 442Million the number of teaching hours generated if just 1% of internet users spend 1% of their online time per year helping others to learn. 200Million the number of people in the world today who have no access to high school. 190Million the number of students in China learning English today. 6.2 Million the number of high school kids in the U.S. who are doing homework everyday without a parent home to help.
  7. 7. Online learning is not new, but deeply entrenched thinking about “proper” education is arguably the most resilient business model in history. The reality that’s coming to realization: how people learn today is worlds away from how most educators still teach. Crowdlearning Challenges. ● Perception of quality ● Quality ● Student motivation ● Outcomes of value ● Business model
  8. 8. Noble Purpose. In today’s global, connected world, the crowd is our village. “It takes a village to raise a child”
