6 Future of e- Learning, contd Multi-career. Change of career. Lifelong learning. Just-in-Time (JIT) learning. Career development: learning by the corporate Telecommuting learning: distance 7 Traditional vs. e-Learning Traditional Learning Teacher Centered

Single Media Isolated Work Information Delivery Factual-based Learning Bricks & Board E-Learning Student Centered Multimedia Collaborative Work Information Exchange Skills-based learning Technology-enabled 8 learning

Potential online-learning: Pros New opportunities to Customized and flexible No commuting time or No constraints of Learning while working Learning at her/his own maximize learning potentials travel cost learning

geographical location pace Just-In-Time (JIT) learning Learning to fit busy schedule Re-tooling for the No campus space is Probably less costly Greater learning unemployed required

resources available 9 Potential online-learning: Cons Instructors need to be Needs of students for effective equipment and service providers Hard for instructors to move traditional content online Academic integrity of online students

Time consuming for individualized feedback Lack face-to-face interaction Technical training of learners Lack of regulations of learning practices and quality assurance Effectiveness of assessments Lack of e-learning culture 10

Potential online-learning: Cons Contd Equity of access to learners of different backgrounds E-learning must be integrated into the mainstream accreditation and quality assurance guidance, design delivery and assessment Requires new skills and responsibility from learners Lack of policies of

intellectual property rights to protect e-learning content authors Content developers have to be trained in instructional design, learning theory Lack of social interactive aspects of campus and classrooms 11 ICT was the fastest growing technology during the last decades.

18 Creativity and innovations Change of schooling from disseminators to facilitators of knowledge Learning to structure knowledge from avalanche of information Learning to learn, to think, to analyze, and solve problems to create the analytical mind To develop the inquisitive mind to discover the unknown

To integrate ICT in the learning process Self-learning and long-life learning To transfer knowledge into application and technology 19 ICT-based education brain-intensive, knowledge-driven Renovate educational system: blended integrated approach Motivate bright students to take up careers in technology-enabled education ICT for all

Assistantships, fellowships and training North-South and South-South post-doctoral programs Brain-gains into brain-bank for building capacity and excellence 20 Entrepreneurs Stimulate educational environment to create entrepreneurs Provide co-op education Access to incubators of creative ideas Graduation projects Provide time and space to nurture entrepreneurial trends Provide access to information through networks Access to venture capital

21 Organizations that deliver learning, need to consider: Realize what market they serve Be responsive to learner needs Prove their value to learners Listen closely to the needs of business Upgrade the quality of instruction Look for partnerships with other complementary organizations Find creative ways to certify learning credentials 22 To predict learning for the future: The corporate will compete

directly with colleges and high schools. Partnerships and mergers between learning institutions, publishers, technology providers will consolidate for the marketplace. Schools and colleges will be taken23 To predict learning for the future: Contd Role of instructors will be broken down into multiple positions: curriculum design, content delivery, classroom facilitator, learner support, etc. His role as a spoon feeder will vanish. Top instructors will be hired by the private sector for all the positions stated above. Fewer students will get the traditional oncampus degree, and most will get at least a

portion of it online and off-campus. A much greater percentage of learning (formal and informal) will take place online. 24 Why do people learn? Many answers Work? Wealth? Economy? Development? Opportunity? 25

Some intellectuals say that most of us make our living from thin air Do We? This is exactly what Bill Gates, is doing . 26 This is what is happening :in the 3rd millennium generation of wealth is no more farms, lands or factories, but creativity and ideas 27 Jordan Initiative

It is expected that bureaucratic ministries of education and governments will

gradually accredit and recognize elearning or otherwise they become obsolete It is us who can implant the technology enabled education among our students It is us who can change the rules and implant the culture of e-learning 29 Thank You 30
