Designing the Future of Online Education

Online education used to mean students sitting in front of a computer and passively consuming content. That model has been turned on its head with increased mobile and social technologies. Now, students expect personalized educational content consumable on any device and constant interaction with their peers and faculty. This new model puts pressure on educational institutions and software vendors to meet and exceed these increased expectations. Stephanie Weeks, Blackboard’s Vice President for User Experience, will share insights that she has gained after nearly a decade in the educational technology industry. She will discuss where online learning has been, where it is going and how educational institutions can navigate these ever-increasing technological expectations.
