Dj commented on FlippEd ~ education for the new millenium

Great idea with revolutionary potential. Since it's so revolutionary and detracts from current behavior and expectations on the part of both students and the education industry, my initial thought is that there are a lot of hypotheses that needs to be tested. That being said, here are a few things that come to mind that you might need to validate:
1) What kind of support would learners need as they develop their FlippedED profile (e.g. establishing their goal, figuring out steps to achieve it, etc.)
2) How to design education programs and bring together components into one comprehensive program (e.g. will there be multiple education providers serving one client, and, if so, who would be responsible for designing the overall solution)
3) What kinds of education institutions would be interested in participating in a pilot like this. My initial thought is that universities are not a good option simply because they're very conservative/risk averse)
