Academics Propose a ‘Blockchain University,’ Where Faculty (and Algorithms) Rule

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Sun, 2018-11-04 01:10

By Jeffrey R. Young, EdSurge

Experiments with blockchain in higher education are underway at multiple campuses around the country, and many researchers are looking into how to use the technology to verify and deliver credentials. Massachusetts Institute for Technology, for example, began issuing diplomas via blockchain last year.  The plan by Oxford researchers goes beyond digital diplomas—and beyond many typical proposals to disrupt education in general. It argues for a completely new framework for how college is organized, how professors are paid, and how students connect with learning. In other words, it’s a long shot.

Peter Nilsson is teaching his students at Massachusetts’ Deerfield Academy how to code through humanities text — which includes rap music, speeches and news stories — by having them use those skills to analyze linguistic details, according to The Hechinger Report.  More states are adding computer science classes and standards to their curriculum, with 40 states and the District of Columbia now allowing students to take computer science classes and count them as part of their math and science high school graduation requirements. To expand access, schools are also looking to weave more computer science skills into other core classes, from music courses where students compose through computer equipment to science classes where they build computer simulations to understand principles.

WHICH WILL DOMINATE ONLINE TUTORING: AI OR THE GIG ECONOMY?

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Sun, 2018-11-04 01:02

By Henry Kronk, eLearning Inside

The market for online tutoring is growing rapidly. In April, Technavio estimated the sector would continue to expand at a CAGR of nearly 7% through 2022. Two forces are driving this growth: the gig economy and AI. While these two currently co-exist in peace, many predict that, across the board, the former is just an intermediary step to the inevitable latter. People who make this argument point usually to the large sums current gig economy platforms are investing in AI, along with the mainstay of capitalism which goes: “everything that can be automated for a competitive advantage, will be automated.”

CEO steps down at online education unicorn Udacity

By Cromwell Schubarth, Silicon Valley Business Journal

Vishal Makhijani is stepping down as CEO of online education unicorn Udacity Inc., which last month reportedly cut staff. The move comes after Makhijani earlier this year released numbers for the first time to tout the Mountain View company’s growth as a step toward a possible IPO. “We are supporting our former and current employees through the transition,” the company said in a statement at the time. We continue to hire for key roles.” In its numbers released in February, Udacity said it had doubled its revenue in 2017, pulling in some $70 million — largely from students in the company’s “nanodegree” program. It said it employs about 500 to run its programs around the world. It said it has 10 million students across its paid and free classes, with over 50,000 enrolled in the nanodegree programs.

Don’t let your diploma hit its expiration date

NOLAN TAYLOR, Indianapolis Recorder

It’s not uncommon to see adults rely on the younger generation to fill in the “knowledge gap” for tasks like setting up a new smartphone or posting information on the internet. But consider the many cases where we as adults need to know for ourselves, like being up-to-date enough to help our children with homework (things have changed a bit since we were in school), meeting the demands of a current job or pursuing possibilities of advancement. In some sense, our diplomas and degrees have expiration dates that we can only extend by keeping current.  With so many great options, how do you decide how to keep current or how to update your skills?

Sue Gee , iProgrammer
Earlier this month edX announced that starting next fall it would offer fully online Master’s degrees, including ones related to computer science and data science. Some of them build on existing MicroMaster’s programs providing “stackable credentials” along the way. In his blog post making this announcement Anant Agarwal, CEO of edX wrote that the average Master’s graduate increases their salary by $17,000 per year, yet the average Master’s degree costs between $30,000-$120,000. The cost of a Master’s degrees on edX is planned to be between $10,000-$23,000, making it a realistic proposition for many more individuals. “We built these programs for you, our learners, so that you can earn a top ranked graduate degree, at a disruptive price, in a flexible way.

The jobs market keeps getting tighter, with employers struggling to find the right workers to fill jobs, according to the Fed’s latest Beige Book report. Workers in highest demand are those in engineering, finance, sales, construction and manufacturing, information technology and trucking. “Employers throughout the country continued to report tight labor markets and difficulties finding qualified workers,” the report said, noting several occupations in particular where demand is high but supply is short. The skills gap has been bedeviling companies all year as job openings outnumber job seekers.

By Jeffrey J. Selingo, Chronicle of Higher Ed
Technology has been integral to the daily lives of many of today’s teenagers since they were toddlers. But when they come to campus, they’re looking for a mix of virtual and face-to-face learning, says Vickie S. Cook, an associate professor and executive director of the Center for Online Learning, Research, and Service at the University of Illinois at Springfield. That requires a new approach to synchronous learning (at a set time) and asynchronous learning (at your own pace). “This generation doesn’t distinguish between the two,” Cook says. Here are some of her tips for developing an effective educational experience for Gen Z.

5 keys to better align college training with workforce needs

James Paterson, Education Dive
A new report highlights five key elements to successfully resolving a thorny and much-discussed issue that dogs colleges and universities: the reported misalignment of the skills employers need and the training colleges offer. The Education Commission of the States examined four states’ efforts to develop workforce and postsecondary systems — Connecticut, Oregon, South Carolina and Texas. It identified common themes of data utilization, stakeholder coordination and collaboration, leaders committed to raising awareness around the issue, aligning curriculum with workforce needs, and access to federal and industry funding. So far this year, 32 states and the District of Columbia have introduced workforce development legislation, with 28 bills enacted across 17 states. Half of those efforts focused on financial incentives for students and institutions targeting high-demand fields.

Creating OER courses and degrees is often time-consuming, but instructors in several community colleges said they changed their instruction as a direct result of working with the open materials. Using OER materials helped the instructors align materials better with learning goals, and instructors who were already using student-centered and hands-on learning strategies said the materials helped them enhance their practices. Some instructors also saw students engaging more with the materials than with textbooks, possibly because they are more relevant and students can be involved in creating their learning experience.

How Do You Prepare Students for Jobs That Don’t Exist Yet? Karen Cator Has Some Ideas.

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Wed, 2018-10-31 01:10

By Emily Tate, EdSurge

There is a lot of talk these days about robots replacing humans in the workforce, but those conversations remain largely abstract. For students in school today, however, the issue is urgent, research shows. What if the job they aspire to today is no longer an option when it comes time to graduate? How can they train for jobs that don’t even exist yet? On the other side of that equation are educators, who often draw from their own learning experiences in K-12 and higher education to inform their instruction. What responsibility do they have in preparing today’s students for a future none of them can really envision? EdSurge recently sat down with Karen Cator, the CEO of Digital Promise, to get her take.

Google is headed to college campuses next year to teach a 10-week intensive course on machine learning, a fast-growing field for which the tech firm says there are neither enough workers nor faculty to train them, and where the firm is among the top employers. The course is part of Google’s Applied Computing Series, which includes two introductory computer and data science courses currently offered through eight colleges. It is seeking host colleges that don’t have a computer science program or whose program is at capacity. The machine-learning intensive will be offered at five colleges beginning in 2019. Google will pay tuition and offer instructors alongside faculty from the host college. Participants will earn nine credits from the host institution for successfully completing the course.

Abstract
Our hospital was still late in establisheding a nursing information system, including a component for blood glucose management. We tried to use the Taiwan TIGER model to train ourselves to see whether we could develop a working system on our own. The process is very educating and we did not only successfully designed a system based on our ideas, but also learn how to convert from traditional paper work to automation with ICT capability.
