Watch: The Higher Education Explosion and the Chaos to Come

Credit: Darin L. Hammond
Technology represents the firearms of the education revolution.

Elearning represents a fundamental disruption in the continuum of traditional higher education, initiating an unprecedented revolution that will induce chaos before all is resolved.

Elearning and massive open online courses (MOOCs) represent a fundamental disruption in the continuum of traditional higher education, initiating an unprecedented revolution in education that will induce mayhem before resolving itself into a unique and evolved system.

The new universe of higher education will empower more people across the globe and increase the general level of human intelligence, a democratic system of education that benefits human evolution globally.

Revolutions

In the midst of a turbulent Continental Congress in Philadelphia, 1776, Thomas Jefferson rallied the unconvinced delegates with revolutionary language in the Declaration of Independence. Jefferson took the role of author reluctantly, feeling that more capable authors could state the claims more effectively.

However, nothing matches his brilliance in separating the American people from England and oppression. He declares:


We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. ...That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Thomas Jefferson, The Declaration of Independence

Higher Education Revolution

Higher education needs a revolutionary voice capable of declaring the causes which impel the people to alter or abolish the traditional regime. This voice will emerge soon, and we will recognize and be compelled by the call for revolt.

We do not yet know that voice, but just as the revolution had already begun when Jefferson put it in writing, the battle has ensued in education. New voices will inspire and unite, while at the same time dividing and initiating a bloodletting.
David McCullough, author of 1776, describes the chaos created by the Declaration:


The year 1776, celebrated as the birth year of the nation and for the signing of the Declaration of Independence, was for those who carried the fight for independence forward a year of all-too-few victories, of sustained suffering, disease, hunger, desertion, cowardice, disillusionment, defeat, terrible discouragement, and fear, as they would never forget, but also of phenomenal courage and bedrock devotion to country, and that, too they would never forget.

David McCullugh, 1776

McCullough reminds us that independence and revolution never come easy, and the people must transcend the chaos to acheive victory: the battles, defeats, fears, and uncertainty. The education revolution requires the valor of individuals willing to pit themselves against an entrenched tradition of education.

The brief film I present here introduces a series I am creating on this revolution: "Higher Education Explosion Series: Part 1 An Introduction to Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)." I begin with MOOCs because they are at the front of the battle, disrupting education more than any other movement in history.

I hope you enjoy and engage me in conversation.

does the quality of the 'help' coffee copy at the site cafe 'quality dissertion' actually help or is it tantamount to someone 'overly configuring' essays for you which to me smacks of non cognitive participation of not learning through your mistakes and OWN personal experiences thus empowering you to write robotically somewhat from solicited help which in fact may have flaws inherent don't you think, stewartagron? THINK being the spur to open up your thought process. Only an opinion. But aren't personal opinions from within the essence of an essay?

You can point out a flaw or two here or there? You didn't. I would have been interested in YOUR opinion. I thought the post very good. Prof. Hammond the only thing i would debate is that when and if this future media phenomenon takes overwhelming control to assist our creativity etc, who then does the mundane tasks like changing tap washers? Thinking ouside the square to put together an outdoor setting that has been miss drilled by a robot, together? Or will the basic essentials of 'hands on' handy people have this advanced learning enabling them to ring a genuine tradesman who in turn can charge exorbitant fees because intellectuals can't find the 'turn off' mains tap to prevent flooding their house of future education. I say this tongue in cheek because i believe your educational heart is in the right place and you state what you are about, not like some who are blatantly advertising their wares on many sites with nary a spike of regret. And i wish you luck with your proposals. My son is an highly intelligent writer with terrific potential...doesn't run with the 'cafe' crowd. Ask him to fix a split tap washer! Ring dad. But i live in hope traditional fix it skills won't be flooded with or by advanced technology. Maybe some genius will find or create a substitute for water? Latte maybe? Cheers...

i think we just need a new universe (kidding)...the general level of intelligence no matter what height it achieves is impotent without jobs and jobs don't necessarily become bestowed on your intellectual ability or are there indeed to suit intellectuals of all genres. Best methinks to groom the young to become politicians whereupon intellect is not required. How many IT people does the world need to change the Globe? I know many people very intelligent with uni degrees who are forced towork in other than their chosen fields but i guess if the powers in government continue to treat people like dummies then if you are highly intelligent you can recognise that you are being treated unfairly. By all means get a great education. As far as nursing goes, the influx of interns and trainee doctors is predominately from overseas who come to Australia for a better life and more opportunity and good luck to them. Nursing is a hard vocation indeed. I wish everyone well...universally. If more people were empowered to rail against the current education criteria which i think Prof. Hammond was alluding to then yes it is a good thing as long as the government so called intellectuals are made aware of the dynamics and urgency of change.Some i would suggest, would be hard pushed to recognise the turning wheel of advanced education even if it ran over them. That's not to say all pollies are tarred with the same intellectual brush...i believe most need a spray now and then as their brush with the average person's needs seems to go hard as tar.Maybe a new broom needed to sweep away the intellectual cobwebs? cheers...Self help is good.I mean it's good to help yourself.
