  12. Sloan and ADEC Partnership • The Pillars • Learning Effectiveness • Student Satisfaction • Access • Faculty Development • Cost Effectiveness

  13. The Book: NSF Results

  14. Digital Inclusion • Communities • Connections • Costs • Options

  15. Teaching & Learning with Technology • E-learning • Online learning • Blended Learning • Distance Learning • Learning

  16. ROI • Benchmarking • Accountability • Values and Ethics

  17. E-Science • Field Stations • Collaboratories • Transparency • Visualization • Simulation

  18. Academic Trends - Global • Knowledge and information growing exponentially – no one can be expert – networks critical • Instruction is becoming more learner centers, non-linear and self directed • Growing emphasis on academic accountability-demonstrate competency • Outsourcing and partnerships increasing

  19. E-Learning to Change the World Survey November 2004 – nonprofits and associations www.nten.org Entering the Mainstream: Quality and Extent of Online Education in the U.S. 2003 and 2004-Sloan-C A Nation Online: Entering the Broadband Era Sept. 2004 – U.S. Dept. of Commerce

  20. Key Findings • Widespread Use of E-Learning: 54% of respondent organizations are using or planning to use this year – 36% more are interested • Vast majority of organizations satisfied: 88% • Wide variety of uses: self-paced E-Learning most common • Key benefits: convenience, access and cost effectiveness

  21. Sloan C Survey • Approximately two million students studying online • Online enrollment growth expected to accelerate

  22. Sloan C (cont.) • Students as satisfied with online as face to face • Schools believe online learning is critical to their long-term strategy • Three quarters of academic leaders at public colleges and universities believe that online learning quality is equal to or superior to face-to-face instruction

  23. Online Learning Continuum • No online learning content: TRADITIONAL • 1-29% may use a CMS, web pages, modules, virtual field trips, simulation, visualization to small degree: WEB ENHANCED • 30-79% Substantial proportion of content is delivered online: BLENDED/HYBRID • 80%+ Little or no face to face: ONLINE

  24. Learner Centered – Active LearningPew Grant Lessons Learned • Continuous assessment and feedback • Student-to-student discussion and projects • Interactive learning modules • Use of undergraduate learning assistants • Increase flexibility but students need structure • Student centered concrete learning plan with specific mastery components and milestones of achievement

  25. Pew Lessons Learned (cont) • Online course management system • Online tutorials • Online CMC system • Online automated assessment of exercises, quizzes and tests • Shared resources – collaboration and partnerships – don’t do it all locally

  26. Pew Lessons Learned (cont) • Increase efficiency: larger student enrollments, blended classes, reduce costs, consolidate sections and courses • Faculty who are willing to use an appropriate blend of homegrown and free or purchased learning materials from others have a large head start – critical success factor

  27. Today’s Learners • The modern college student is interested in online learning, small modules and short programs…and in learning that can be done at home and fitted around work, family and social obligations (Tony Bates)

  28. Learners Today • Information-age learners prefer doing to knowing, trial and error to logic and typing to handwriting. Multitasking is a way of life for them, staying connected is essential and there is zero tolerance for delays. Modern literacy includes not only text but also image and screen literacy – it involves navigating information and assembling knowledge from fragments (Oblinger; Jones and Pritchard)

  29. Today’s Adult Learner • Pragmatic, problem solver • Self-directed and goal and relevancy oriented – they need the rationale for what they are learning. They are motivated by professional advancement, external expectations, the need to better serve others, social relationships, and pure interest in the subject.

  30. Items Being Studied • Completion and retention rates • Maturity and learner motivation • Division of labor – unbundling faculty role – new kinds of instructional staff – adjusts – team including administrators, instructional designers,

  31. What It Means to Pioneer • Be first or early in settling new territory…..first mover • People who open up an area or prepare the way

  32. Indigenous Knowledge • Learning from the edges of the network • Sharing and exchange in real-time

  33. A Flat World • World has been flattened by convergence of political events, innovations and companies

  34. The World Is Flat • “I would rather be a genius born in China than an average guy born in Poughkeepsie” – Bill Gates • Virtual World – China and India loom large • We can’t stop the wave • We can do BETTER in so many ways -- rich – poor divide • Soaring health care costs – burden in global race

  35. Pioneers: Early & On-Time • Take risks • Learn from mistakes • Build the infrastructure • Don’t give up!

  36. Myths & Tall Tales • There is nothing at the edges of net • It’s about technology • It’s BW & video lectures

  37. Myths & Tall Tales • It’s only for the young/teens • We are building tools that fit the need, user,”hand” • Distance ed is not as good • Regulation is benign

  38. The Journey Continued • Cyber infrastructure • Collaborations • Wireless/Anywhere • Blurring research/education
