Tomorrow’s Education

Here is another really interesting example of online education that does a number of things that I believe will be very important as we go forward:

1. It bridges university postgraduate and commercial corporate education domains

2. It develops a practice-based curriculum backed by academic theory

3. It groups students into small learning sets to share and collaborate around tasks supported by industry mentors

4. It focuses work on practical, contemporary issues such as sustainability, entrepreneurship, and technology

5. It creates bite-sized content units that can be consumed in a flexible way on demand

6. It uses a very interactive, modern learning management platform

7. It leads to an accredited degree

8. It has accreditation from AACSB and EQUIS for external validation

Let’s just hope it lives up to all this in practice!
