Where are we headed?
  • Access to learning independent of
  • Time Economic status Distance
    Physical disability
  • Move instruction, not people to
  • Save time Improve learning
    Reduce cost Provide choice
    Increase capacity
    Generate revenue
  • Address competition
  • Meet student, industry govt.

The Challenge What Do Online Learners Want,
Need, and Expect?
The Challenge
  • Assume responsibility for increasing personal
    market value. Busy yet anxious to learn.
  • Access to learning anytime and anywhere. Time
    and availability is often more important than
    cost for mobile learners who want an on-the-go,
    24/7 connection to education.

The Challenge
  • Convenience and flexibility with a range of
    course and program delivery options and multiple
    avenues for learning.
  • Wide range of online degree, certification and
    career-building programs not just random online
    courses with flexibility around when programs
    start and end. Push is for modular instruction
    versus courses.

The Challenge
  • Well-designed, engaging, relevant and
    continuously updated programs which facilitate
    the transfer of learning to direct application.
    Mastery of content -- not seat time -- is the
  • Emphasis on active, challenging scenario-based
    learning using real, vivid and familiar
    examples. Think games, simulations and shared
    virtual and immersive environments.

The Challenge
  • Self-directed, demand-driven learning with
    control of the pace, sequence and mode of
    learning. Impatient with inefficient methods.
    Want to multi-task while learning.
  • Choice of synchronous, asynchronous, and blended
    learning options.

The Challenge
  • Customized learning experiences based on
    assessment of knowledge gaps, personal learning
    styles and preferences. Shift from just-in-case
    to just-in-time to just-for-me learning.
    Strong interest in search/Google-like learning.
  • Provisions for e-advising, e-coaching and

The Challenge
  • Participation in a networked learning community
    including interaction with instructors, tutors,
    peers and experts.
  • Practice collaboration by working in dispersed
    learning groups, including global interactions.

The Challenge
  • Access to providers with a recognized brand and
    reputation. Will consider a mix of higher
    education, prof trade associations, publishers,
    govt agencies, libraries, corporations, etc. but
    want formal certification for the effort.
  • Preview of courses and review of evaluations
    before registering.

The Challenge
  • World-wide access to electronic resources with
    instruction on how to evaluate and apply what is
  • Outstanding support services with a focus on
    student as customer. Elimination of delays and
    inefficient procedures regarded as essential.
  • Competitive and variable pricing.

The Challenge
  • Continuous, prompt, and meaningful forms of
    assessment and feedback.
  • Use of delivery technology which is smaller,
    faster, brighter, cheaper and totally mobile.
  • Ongoing educational renewal over an entire career
    with commitment from a provider to support
    learning for a lifetime.

The Online Education Market Continues to Churn
  • Successfully implemented with mixed elements of
    hype and reality.
  • Many competitors from start-ups to well regarded
    names with new markets being developed.
  • When in doubt students choose providers with a
    known reputation and use convenience, access,
    job placement and tuition ROI as success

The Future?
  • Higher education institutions will lose an
    increasing share of the growing post-secondary
    education market to other, non-traditional

  • No university bureaucracy and strict

  • Regard education as a commodity.

In online education it sometimes feels as if
  • Youre driving a new car down an unfamiliar road
  • Without a map
  • To get to an unknown destination at breakneck
  • It may sometimes seem like the best strategy
    is doing nothing!

What our engineers and managers are saying is
that the demands of their jobs are such that they
cant get away from work. Since they are working
60 hours a week, any education they get has to be
at their convenience and available online .

Institutional Strategies for Anywhere/Anytime
Learning Some Lessons Learned
  • Online initiative needs to be consistent with
    institutions mission, values, strengths and
    areas of distinction. Build from tradition in new
  • Must begin with a clear, worthy strategic plan
    keeping it close to core faculty and using
    traditional academic structures to accelerate

  • Design online education initiative as a way to
    extend and enhance - not replace - academic
    programs. Develop a unique niche to meet a
    local, national or global market need.
  • Aim for the sweet spot -- intersection of
    audience needs and wants, faculty interests,
    institutional strengths and what people will pay

  • Think course-to-certificate-to-degree
    progression. Online versions of existing courses
    are easier to start than new ones.
  • Recruit best faculty by offering incentives and
    rewards supportive of change. Address faculty
    concerns regarding ownership of intellectual
    property, increased demands and impact on

  • Start small pilot with existing students, alumni
    and focus groups. Benchmark against competition.
    Experiment, adapt, improve and then scale with
  • Develop financial model that covers costs and
    investments with revenue distributed to
    participating departments and faculty. Point out
    non-revenue values of faculty participation.

  • If possible, create a unified institutional
    brand. Strong brands with weak programs will
    diminish the reputation of the institution. Use
    caution in developing collaborations and outside
  • Identify every possible student service
    interaction and try to make it positive and
    satisfying. Be fast, flexible and attentive.

Moving to Anywhere, Anytime Learning
  • Remember its not about technology, its about
  • Question everything like an entrepreneur. Think
    daringly, execute steadily.
  • Capitalize on the unexpected and have the courage
    to stop doing.
  • Appoint leaders and staff with focus, passion,
    vision and a willingness to take risks.

Moving to Anywhere, Anytime Learning
  • The scarce resource today is not bandwidth,
    but people who can create and innovate in the
    knowledge age.
