Replace degrees with modular "learn anytime" competencies through high production-quality electronic courses
Tell us about your idea
Learning beyond high school level will be through course modules of inter-related courses that will be completed online to reflect learning of competencies, replacing academic degrees. Competencies might include tool identification and application, critical thinking, and problem solving. The modular approach releases restrictions to competency completion, such as traditional semester platforms, specific times for course offerings, and measurement of completion in years required. Online courses must be upgraded in terms of production value to heighten student interest and involvement.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.
As a retired university professor, I regret losing face-to-face classroom interaction. However, I believe economic circumstance will move the majority of students online. Present on-line course design is lacking in the ability to deliver quality international education and to measure the effects of that education. In order to accommodate that shift, many changes to course design and delivery will be required.
