EdX’s co-CEO answers 3 questions about higher ed’s future

Mon, 2019-12-02 01:10

Hallie Busta, Education Dive

EdX’s president and co-CEO, Adam Medros, who was previously its president and chief operating officer, expects groups of credentials beyond traditionally recognized degrees and certificates to become more widely accepted by employers. Getting recognition among hiring managers has been one noted hurdle for these so-called alternative credentials, and their lack of standardization also threatens further uptake. Below, Education Dive posed three questions to Medros over email about the current and future state of postsecondary education.

Work from home? Survey says “Yes”

Mon, 2019-12-02 01:05

Greg Nichols, ZD Net

Increasingly, employers in many sectors are allowing or even encouraging their traditional employees to work remotely, and for good reason. Turns out a huge number of workers place remote work at the top of the priority list.  The headline? Nearly everyone wants to work remotely, at least part of the time. Some 74% of respondents said they’d be willing to quit their job to work at home, and more than 1 in 4 said they already have quit a job because the company didn’t offer flexible or remote work options.

Poll: Young adults favor experience over degrees for job prep

Sun, 2019-12-01 01:09

Hallie Busta, Education Dive

Although many teens and young adults say there are payoffs to attending college, slightly more (73%) say on-the-job experience is “a good way to prepare for success” in the workforce compared to degrees or other educational experiences, according to a recent survey from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. Of the 769 teens (ages 13 to 17) and 1,804 young adults (ages 18 to 29) polled, equal shares (60%) said vocational training or a bachelor’s degree would help them prepare for success. A slightly higher percentage (66%) said the same of graduate degrees. The results also highlight differences in students’ college-going habits and their views of higher education based on factors such as family income, race and political leaning.

What jobs are affected by AI? Better-paid, better-educated workers face the most exposure

Sun, 2019-12-01 01:05

Mark Muro, Jacob Whiton, and Robert Maxim, Brookings

AI could affect work in virtually every occupational group. However, whereas research on automation’s robotics and software continues to show that less-educated, lower-wage workers may be most exposed to displacement, the present analysis suggests that better-educated, better-paid workers (along with manufacturing and production workers) will be the most affected by the new AI technologies, with some exceptions. Our analysis shows that workers with graduate or professional degrees will be almost four times as exposed to AI as workers with just a high school degree. Holders of bachelor’s degrees will be the most exposed by education level, more than five times as exposed to AI than workers with just a high school degree.

6 Reasons Why Higher Education Needs to Be Disrupted

Sun, 2019-12-01 01:02

Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic and Becky Frankiewicz, HBR

No clear alternative to universities has yet emerged, and while there’s no clear path to disrupting higher education, there are pain points which those of us in the education field and beyond could be confronting. At some point a viable alternative will likely emerge and we see six reasons that make the case for demanding something different.

The Risks of Using AI to Interpret Human Emotions

Sat, 2019-11-30 01:08

Mark Purdy, John Zealley, Omaro Maseli; Harvard Business Review

Because of the subjective nature of emotions, emotional AI is especially prone to bias. For example, one study found that emotional analysis technology assigns more negative emotions to people of certain ethnicities than to others. Consider the ramifications in the workplace, where an algorithm consistently identifying an individual as exhibiting negative emotions might affect career progression.

Dealing With Bias in Artificial Intelligence

Sat, 2019-11-30 01:02

Craig S. Smith, NY Times

Three women with extensive experience in A.I. spoke on the topic and how to confront it. Bias is an unavoidable feature of life, the result of the necessarily limited view of the world that any single person or group can achieve. But social bias can be reflected and amplified by artificial intelligence in dangerous ways, whether it be in deciding who gets a bank loan or who gets surveilled. The New York Times spoke with three prominent women in A.I. to hear how they approach bias in this powerful technology.

Graduates value degrees and courses relevant to their jobs, survey finds

Fri, 2019-11-29 01:05

By Natalie Schwartz, Education Dive
Students tend to see more value in their postsecondary education when it features coursework relevant to their jobs, according to a new survey of 340,000 people from Gallup and Strada Education Network.  Most (57%) graduates of nondegree vocational and technical programs strongly agreed their education was worth the price. That’s compared to 50% of respondents with graduate degrees, 48% with associate degrees and 40% with bachelor’s degrees who say the same.  Only about one-fourth of students who left college before completing a credential said it was worth the cost or strengthened their job candidacy.

Private Conversations About Private College Closures

Fri, 2019-11-29 01:03

Paul Fain, Inside Higher Ed
A college advising company planned to release a list projecting when specific private colleges could run out of money and close, but pushback from the sector convinced the company to scuttle its plan. The final straw was the letter a lawyer for a private nonprofit college sent just before 5 p.m. last Wednesday. It said any statement about the college facing an imminent risk of closure would be false. The letter followed a flurry of similar calls and emails from colleges and their representatives about a list a college advising company planned to release the next day. The list featured projections of how many years 946 private colleges have until they could run out of money and close.

How to Use Micro Learning in Your Course

Fri, 2019-11-29 01:02

LAURA LYNCH, eLearning Learning

The idea of micro learning encompasses micro content, which involves breaking large courses down into smaller pieces. Micro learning is also concerned with the way larger courses are delivered. You can create a semester-long course which you deliver in fragments, or you can incorporate micro learning moments into your normal course material. Whichever way you approach this teaching method, using it is likely to show positive results in your course. Micro learning is an effective means of reducing cognitive load, which is the limit of information a learner can absorb at one time before their short-term memory becomes over-burdened. Because of this, educators should take measures early to offer their learners micro learning opportunities in their course.

6 reasons why online courses are outperforming traditional learning

Thu, 2019-11-28 01:09

Business Matters

You know we’re at the cusp of change when online education beats traditional school education. Which is exactly what’s happening right now. According to various researches, students taking courses or classes online outperform the students getting a traditional education. Sure, right now, a certificate from a virtual university doesn’t hold much value as compared to the degree from a renowned institute but that is changing as well. Not only people in general but also employers are seeing online education in a new perspective, which is opening career opportunities for millions of students worldwide. Previously, online courses wasn’t thought of as “proper education” because the institute only exists in a virtual space. “It’s not real”, they’d say. But considering the advantages online education has over traditional schools, people are forced to recognize and acclaim it. Let’s take a look at some of these advantages.

Instructure, the education software company that makes learning management system Canvas, is exploring potential alternatives to being a publicly traded company that could include a sale. The news was first reported by Bloomberg on Wednesday and confirmed in a company announcement Thursday. Instructure said it has received interest from “multiple third parties.” Investor pressure spurred the decision, according to Bloomberg, and potential outcomes include continuing as a public company, going private or being purchased.

New Blockchain Effort Will Let Employers Search for Candidates With Proven Skills

Thu, 2019-11-28 01:03

By Jeffrey R. Young, EdSurge

The college is part of a new effort called the Learning Credential Network, announced Thursday, that plans to use the same technology popularized by Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to store academic records in a way that is nearly impossible to counterfeit. Students can send their records without having to ask the college registrar to get involved. The system is up and running, sort of, but so far officials haven’t finished putting a public user interface on it or launching the public website, says Tobe Phelps, chief technology innovation officer at Central New Mexico Community College. About a dozen people have put their transcripts into the system to test it, and if all goes well the public rollout will happen next summer.

How should physical art and design be evaluated in an online program? Can microcredentials market a master’s program? NYU’s new online degree attempts an answer. “We wanted to expand the reach and make it more accessible to people who are interested in developing their career, maybe are working full-time or have a family,” said Scott Fitzgerald, director of online programs at the Tandon school and co-director of the integrated digital media program. “We really want to expand this to as many people as we possibly can.”

The sands of higher education are shifting, prompting more schools to enter into partnerships and utilize distance learning to attract elusive “place-bound” students. The University of Northern Iowa took a step this month to increase its Des Moines footprint. UNI President Mark Nook and President Rob Denson of Des Moines Area Community College announced a new 2+2 partnership — earning an associate of arts degree on DMACC’s Urban Campus, then completing work through UNI for a bachelor of liberal studies degree. The UNI courses would be offered online initially with staff present to support students, beginning in fall 2020.

Today’s students are more diverse across multiple areas than any previous generation of college students. Students represent various ages, income levels, and races. They’re more mobile and may not live on campus. Most participate in the workforce, either full-time or part-time. Work and family responsibilities beyond the classroom—whether that is on-campus or online—often compete with today’s students’ educational goals. Yet, today’s students see the promise and power of a higher education. Today’s students shared with Insights & Outlooks their inspiration for attending college.
