How California’s Online Education Pilot Will End College As We Know It
News from TechCrunch:

Today, the largest university system in the world, the California State University system, announced a pilot for $ 150 lower-division online courses at one of its campuses — a move that spells the end of higher education as we know it. Lower-division courses are the financial backbone of many part-time faculty and departments (especially the humanities). As someone who has taught large courses at a University of California, I can assure readers that my job could have easily been automated. Most of college–the expansive campuses and large lecture halls–will crumble into ghost towns as budget-strapped schools herd students online.

[Note: at the end of this article, I offer a timeline for how this all comes crumbling down]

Traditionally, droves of unprepared teenagers were crammed into the faceless lecture halls of lower-division and remedial courses. “They graduate from high school, but they cannot pass our elementary math and English placement tests,” said Ellen N. Jun…………… continues on TechCrunch

E-learning can impact maritime training
News from Virtual College:

Online training could have an important role in the future of the maritime industry, it has been said.

In a blog for Maritime Professional, e-learning specialist Murray Goldberg said sea-related sectors could take advantage of distance learning online.

While studying in this manner would not be comparable to real-world business experience, he noted that it could “do wonders” for the sector by providing open and free instruction to everyone who is interested in it.

He highlighted a study from the US Department of Education, which took place in 2010, as evidence of the efficacy of virtual learning environments.

This research found people who took part in online learning typically performed better than those engaged in traditional face-to-face education when both parties were learning the same material.

It pointed out that there are a wide range of variables involved in this discrepancy, noting students taking part in e-learning might be more likely to spend longer on tasks they have trouble with than those going through traditional classroom education.

Furthermore, the research revealed that e-learning courses can become even more effective by enabling learners to control the way they interact with media and by prompting them to reflect on their…………… continues on Virtual College
