Education, Plenary 4

Title: Massive Open and Online Courses (MOOCs) – innovation that is transforming education

MOOCs are transforming how students learn, test and receive credentials globally.  This has huge implications for the entire learning life-cycle, i.e. K-12 to university and continuing education.  This also affects all the stakeholders, i.e. industry, government and the society. Further, innovations in adaptive learning are likely to merge with MOOCs to deliver even higher impact. 

The panel, consisting of founders of MOOCs organizations, expert in adaptive learning and faculty members, a Provost and a Chancellor from premier research universities, will share their insights, implications and the future of these innovations.  And, what all of this means to you as an entrepreneur, corporate executive, faculty member, university leader, student and a parent!
