9:10 AM Digital Innovation: what happens when you offer degrees on a global MOOC platform – and why would you?
Deakin University promises its students “a brilliant education where they are, and where they want to go” for the jobs and skills of the future, and in the digital economy. A key strategy has been adopting a global platform, FutureLearn, to offer degrees and credentials with greater global visibility. The value proposition in the digital era means that any student from anywhere can have a global experience. In this session, Professor Oliver will explain what really happens when institutions adopt digital strategies in a global play:
- The context and design process of the FutureLearn strategy
- Lessons learned and challenges in implementation
