The future of MOOCs

E-Learning Provocateur

It’s all very well for Apple-owning, organic-buying professionals to cast aspersions, but consider the girl in Pakistan who’s too scared to set foot in a classroom. Universities will flip their classrooms. Over time, content providers will supplement their core offerings with live webinars, interactive exercises, discussion forums, wikis, social networks etc. Content providers will wag the long tail. MOOCs get a bad rap.

CLO Magazine

I’m basically responsible for the production of CLO’s content, so the magazine, all of our online content, coming up with that content, whether it’s contributed, or whether we come up with the ideas ourselves or if someone pitches an idea to us, picking what we will include in the magazine and what we’ll feature online and overseeing the production of all of that.

Elucidat

Prior to working as a consultant, Jon was CLO of Discover , managing a team of over 200 to build the skills of a workforce of over 17,000 people. You’ve gone from teaching a class—you’re passionate about teaching and the effect that learning can have, and then you’ve gone into an organization where you’re going from a classroom to 17,000-ish plus people. I think in a classroom, you think of yourself as a facilitator of learning.
