Personalization and Quality Assurance Will Be Central to Higher Ed’s Shifts in 2016 - Deb Adair, Evolllution

Those leading the innovative work in higher education, those far out in front, could benefit from a good public relations campaign to bridge this gap between the innovators and those educators in the skeptical majority. In my view, higher education has become more sophisticated in what it expects from the use of technology. It’s not about technology for technology’s sake — the next shiny object. Isn’t not about the use of technology primarily as a tool for mass communicating — to improve access. Instead, leaders are looking to technology for solutions to move from an industrialized, factory-model version of education delivery to a customized, personalized one, scaling the gold standard of the faculty-student exchange where educators provide learners the benefits of their expertise.
