Topic: Distance Learning in Higher Education
One of the issues discussed in this weekâ€™s readings is the question of how distance learning and online instruction in the past decade has transformed curriculum in higher education. As an online learner, this is an especially captivating topic for discussion this week. Recent studies have reported that there are over six million students worldwide now enrolled in distance education.
In the presentation this week The Future of Higher Education, Kevin Manning discusses that the future of higher education will be dominated by distance learning and at the heart of this process will be the cell phone. This will permit higher education to be offered in a cost-effective manner throughout the world.
