The future of education in an online world

Universities Information technology Australia


Is it time to reimagine how we learn? Should we be moving from lecture halls to e-spaces -- from books to tablets?

Technology is opening up new ways to teach and learn.

It is also opening up new ways to understand how we learn.

Australian universities are increasingly rethinking the delivery of their educational programs by making the foray into Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).

MOOCs are a growing phenomenon in the higher education sector -- complementing existing face-to-face courses and opening doors to students who might not have had the means to pursue tertiary-level education.

Will edX and other MOOCs providers change the face of education forever?

Featuring panelists:

Professor Anant Agarwal President of edX and social entrepreneur Professor Brian Schmidt AC Astrophysicist, Nobel Laureate and co-leader of the first ANU edX course
