Zero Marginal Cost
Openness need to expand beyond the content centered discussion
Growth on OER
We over estimate the impact of the short term technology and underestimate...
9 trends to keep in mind
"The world is one big data problem."

Monthly, 1billion people

Openness need to go beyond the content-centered focus
Remove the prefix 'e-'
(of e-learning) or the "digital" (of "digital skills") and move into 'social' (learning, endorsement, constructed…)
OER as an opportunity for trans-disciplinary learning.
If its acknowledge the ubiquitous learning; then work need to be done in the recognition of informal learning
Move form the idea of university as an information aggregator into a digital curation community
Hybrid is the way to go (mixed environments - contexts add value)
Multi-contextual learning means learning to translate skills
low-cost, low-power, joyful, and self-empowered learning
too big to know
the social learning platform is changing

Moving into Context and not Content
"Give me a child and I'll shape him into anything." ― B.F. Skinner.
why not into context-based contents
"The danger with the information revolution is that we will overestimate the short term implications, and underestimate the long term impact" (Gates)
To what extent xMOOC offer only a content-centered approach?
Open Education in the broad sense is more open than ever and the challenge is to rethink the role of HE in this new context
"Radio university" will carry a wealth of authoritative information and scientific knowledge to hundreds of town halls, …offering a higher education to thousands of men a women"

"The biggest rise in tertiary education ever seen – a 160% increase in global enrollment from 1990 to 2009 – is testament to unprecedented demand for education as students seek to prepare themselves for nonmanual work".
(Gordon Brown, UN, 2014)
Projections suggest that enrolled in tertiary education will peak at 263 million in 2025. Accommodating the additional 98 million students would require more than four major universities (30K students) to open every week for the next fifteen years.
This is how we disruption looks like...
