B822 : Book 3 : Contextual Uncertainty

Visible to anyone in the world
Edited by Jonathan Vernon, Thursday, 19 Apr 2012, 13:42

Do you share the view of a chaotic and uncertain future?

If both the content (course materials) and the means for interaction (social media) are available online for free where does that leave universities?

Why not get a job and study at the same time?

If the university 'infrastructure' is a software package too, what do you pay for?

Assessment and the qualification?

And whilst there are standards to meet to give out accredited qualifications who sets the price?

An accountancy course delivered entirely on Facebook for example, for free.

You pay for a qualificaton and only if you pass.

But what matters more, the piece of paper at the end or being able to apply the learning?
