Vision of 2020

“2012 will be remembered as the year everything began.” EPIC 2020 offers a vision of education eight years hence.

Major players: Khan Academy, Mozilla badges, Stanford-style MOOCs, Udacity, MITx, Congress, student loan providers, Apple, Amazon, Google.

Major events: student revolt. Apple purchasing Amazon, collapse of degrees.  Residential campuses become “maturation holding pens” for the wealthy.   Google’s “EPIC” system.

Lots to chew on here, including the general passivity of higher ed in this model.
