Today I watched a marketer pretend to be an educator.
Online learning is never about passive income or get rich quick schemes, it's about value and offering courses that are more than just a well-produced lecture video.
Here are three changes in online learning that are happening and will hopefully give us less of the online learning used car salesman.
1. Video focused based learning sites are less valuable to the learner and most do not complete the course
2. The most valuable form of learning is consumed through peer to peer social networks
3. Project-based learning online is becoming a powerful force in developing skills for success, essential knowledge, and understanding
Just about every big online learning site and course instructor minimizes the importance of the last two.
