Technologies Disrupting the Current Education Model


Cloud computing, Video steaming - YouTube technology, and Listening/Talking Computer - IBM Watson Supercomputer to give the new global model of internet based learning model wherein all learners can learn from Global Professors of Excellence.

 ___________

New Internet Global Excellence Education Model.



Now the technological developments are ready to develop a new internet global excellence education model. We can have global professors of excellence lecture to anybody in the world on one to one basis and then clarify their doubts one one-to-one basis and examine them at their convenience with super computer acting as the facilitating intermediary.
(Idea posted first on 9 September 2011)

Video lectures by the best faculty will be the basis of education. These video lectures are supported by super computers with listening/talking capabilities and doubts of students will be answered by these supercomputers on one-to-one basis. The video lecture is also delivered to each student on one-to-one basis. The faculty support will be there to improve the capability of the computer based interaction package of the subject.

Thus we will see only limited video lectures being used through out world just like the limited number of textbooks used throughout the world now. (10.11.2011)

Technologies to be used

Cloud computing
(Cloud Computing - News and Knols )
Video steaming - YouTube technology
Listening/Talking Computer - IBM Watson Supercomputer
( IBM Watson - The IBM Super Computer  )

Learn Marketing Management from Philip Kotler - Free - New Internet Global Education Model


Do We require Colleges and Institutes in Various Cities and Towns?


We may still require colleges and institutes to provide a schedule to learners. But learners may miss the schedule and can go through the lecture on their computer. Unless they go through the lecture they cannot write the examination. Also local institutes will provide counselling service and take care of practical work. Local faculty now can focus more on providing practical application education. Theoretical knowledge is delivered through central lectures.

Implementation of National Professors of Excellence in India

India is implementing a programme to provide video lectures of top professors of the country to all learners in the country.

My comment
Well yesterday only I thought of the internet education model. One top professor teaching everybody in the world with the assistance of IBM Watson listening/talking super computer and video streaming. I also thought of the question paper set by the professor. Now computers can create even case studies for examination paper purpose and can correct them.

Sounds good. Instead of students paying cheat sites for essays they can look forward to using software. Cheaper, better, faster!
My comment in reply
Technology may facilitate copy paste, but it may be used to constrain and provide focus to the learner also. One idea I am thinking for scheduled learning is terminals that show only the scheduled lecture and nothing else during the scheduled learning period. The terminals can have cameras and thereby one can understand the listening and viewing habits of the learners. Learners can be asked to submit assignments through softwares that automatically track every site visited by the learner during assignment preparation period and hence whether he copy pasted or summarized the content can be assessed. Even copy paste can be suppressed by the software and hence the learner is forced to type the essay himself. All this you are doing to ensure the learner assimilates the material to be learned. The e-learning content is always present to provide him opportunity to access it as many times he wants to.

I think the digital technologies are certainly plus for the learning process.
