by Yoram Neumann, Diverse Learning

The question remains whether or not online education can play a significant role in leveling the playing field and eventually reducing income inequality. According to the U.S. Department of Education and the Center of Education at Georgetown University, about a third of undergraduate students in U.S. universities and colleges are first-generation learners whose bachelor degree graduation rates within six years from starting their studies are only 25 percent. About 54 percent of these first-generation students are adult learners (ages older than 24). 4.5 million undergraduate students are both first-generation and low-income and their bachelor degree completion rate is only 11 percent.

The Evolving World of Community Colleges: Market Position, Competition and the Future

Our industry often subscribes to the notion that community college enrollment is inversely tied to the business cycles of the American economy: We tend to cling to this notion as if it must continue to be this way; as if it’s immutable. While the business cycle is one factor among many in our enrollment patterns, it may be counterproductive for community college leadership to say that a bad economy is good for community college enrollment—and conversely, to blame low enrollments on a booming economy.  A second trend that we need to keep in mind is the impact of artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things (IoT) and automation. That is, we need to address the notion that, “The robots are coming!” A recent study from the McKinsey Global Institute stated that 30 percent of all Americans could be displaced by advanced technologies by 2030.

Today, AI generally is thought to refer to “machines that respond to stimulation consistent with traditional responses from humans, given the human capacity for contemplation, judgment, and intention.” According to researchers Shubhendu and Vijay, these software systems “make decisions which normally require [a] human level of expertise” and help people anticipate problems or deal with issues as they come up. As argued by John Allen and myself in an April 2018 paper, such systems have three qualities that constitute the essence of artificial intelligence: intentionality, intelligence, and adaptability.

Christopher Pappas, Business2Community

Customers are busier than ever — in fact, more than 60 percent of people work at least 40 hours a week on top of countless hours of housework. Even with this full plate, they still must make well-informed buying decisions and find ways to familiarize themselves with brands. As a result, your organization should provide personalized customer online training resources that audiences can peruse at their own pace. With eLearning course development, you can tailor your brand to tech-savvy customers instead of relying on traditional strategies that feel more intrusive. Developing effective online learning courses isn’t easy — especially when you’re just starting out. It’s important to consider a few circumstances before implementing an online training course.

A comparison of human-machine working hours for 2018 and 2022

Future of Jobs Survey 2018, World Economic Forum

Will we humans lose more jobs than we gain when machines take over the world of work, or will it be just the opposite? The experts are still trying to figure that out. In December 2017, a report from management consulting firm McKinsey & Company, “Jobs Lost, Jobs Gained: Workforce Transitions in a Time of Automation,” predicted that between “almost zero” and a third of work activities could be displaced by 2030, with wide variation among countries. (The more advanced the economy, the more likely the impact of automation.) While workforce transitions could hit between 75 million and 375 million people, overall, McKinsey found, more occupations will change than will be lost in a machine-driven world.

Older students are the new normal at college. The reason? The recession and new technology

Leigh Guidry, Lafayette Daily Advertiser

American universities are becoming less traditional — or at least their students are. People over 25 or those with children are enrolling in college classes — so many that nearly 74 percent of American undergraduate students are “nontraditional.” They’re compelled by a recession that especially hurt less-educated employees, along with the worry that advancing technology could leave them without a job. Nontraditional students now outnumber those who start as 18-year-old freshmen supported by their parents, according to data from RTI International, a North Carolina think tank.

Electronic Charting During Simulation: A Descriptive Study.

Abstract
Informatics is a core competency for nursing students recognized by several national organizations in healthcare and nursing education. Nurses must be able to use information and technology to communicate and manage knowledge in support of clinical decisions. Many hospitals either limit or deny nursing students' access to the electronic health record during traditional clinical learning. Simulation-based learning experiences are an alternative to traditional clinical experiences. What remains unclear is how nursing programs are incorporating electronic health record platforms within simulation. This study used a descriptive design to survey nursing programs exploring electronic health record use within simulation-based learning experiences in the classroom, skills laboratory, or simulation laboratory settings. Findings of the survey show that 56.2% of participants used an electronic health record in the classroom, skills laboratory, or simulation laboratory for simulation. Electronic health record use is gaining momentum via simulation-based learning experiences and students are not only documenting but also gathering data and appraising patient data for meaningful use to inform patient care decisions and promote clinical readiness.

WeWork, the leader in coworking spaces, has been turning heads in education circles for the last year. It acquired Flatiron, a prominent coding bootcamp, and MissionU, a one-year college alternative. Then came its partnership with 2U, the standout online program management company. Among other things, the partnership allows 2U students to use WeWork’s office space as study halls, and the two companies will build a learning center together in 2019. The place-based aspect of the partnership is what is so interesting, as it is points to what will happen next with the disruptive innovation of online learning, namely how it will improve.

Research Dispels Myth that Adult Students Don’t Cheat in Online Classes

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Tue, 2018-10-09 02:10

Lindsey Rae Downs, WCET Frontiers

The results have been consistent: adult students often cheat on exams. They search the web for answers. They use smart phones and mobile devices, so locking down browsers while taking a test has little, if any, effect on cheating. They use Google searches and specialized websites that provide answers to open-ended as well as closed-ended assessments. They perceive less opportunity to cheat when they are monitored by automated proctoring systems.

by Matthew Lynch, Tech Edvocate

 

Mobile learning is a growing trend for students who are increasingly searching for ways to take their education with them. They tend to prize flexibility when it comes to their academics, making it essential that professors start to add more mobile learning components to the curriculum. Old-school professors tend to be more reluctant to get on board with the mobile learning options that students love. However, this hesitancy can set them and their students up for failure as they move forward. How can you get a tentative teacher to start incorporating more mobile learning into their classroom? Here are a few tips to make the idea more palatable to a professor who isn’t quite ready to embrace edtech in the classroom.

Here’s how to boost enrollment with chatbots

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Mon, 2018-10-08 02:10

BY DENNIS PIERCE, eCampus News
Georgia State University’s virtual assistant helps incoming freshmen navigate the student enrollment process, leading to a significant increase in enrollment. As recently as last year, nearly one in five students who committed to attending Georgia State University (GSU) never showed up for classes in the fall. This problem isn’t unique to GSU, and it’s commonly referred to as the “summer melt.” But GSU has taken an innovative approach to solving this challenge, using an artificially intelligent (AI) chatbot that has led to a significant increase in student enrollment. Summer melt most commonly affects low-income students, many of whom are the first in their family to be accepted into college. Navigating the complex student enrollment process can be intimidating for anyone, but especially these students—and many just give up before they complete the process.

The one thing missing in most eLearning courses

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Mon, 2018-10-08 02:03

Rapid eLearning

Between the workshops I run, blog emails received, and helping in the community, I get to see hundreds of e-learning courses. A common issue for many courses is transitioning from sharing content to helping people use the content to make the appropriate decisions. Many course developers focus on making the content interactive, which is good. But much of the interactivity is novel or exists at a very basic level. What tends to be missing is the more complex decision-making interactivity. The challenge is how to move past rote facts and get to a place where the learners can practice making the kinds of decisions they’d make in the real world.

That sentiment feels especially relevant today. In an age when information access enables companies to blossom (or disappear) seemingly overnight, there’s more need than ever to re-examine our approaches to education. Does a university degree automatically open the doors it once did? Is trade school the best bet for many tech-savvy up-and-comers? What role do e-learning and tools like audiobooks and podcasts play in not only preparing people for the workplace but helping them keep pace with rapid change? These and many related questions are addressed in The Expertise Economy: How the Smartest Companies Use Learning to Engage, Compete and Succeed. Authors Kelly Palmer and David Blake represent a rising generation of smart disrupters who are making a mark in multiple industries.
