Coming Next Issue: An all new EDUCAUSE Review Online Learn More >>
Elliott Masie
Higher education and corporate learning are ideal candidates for ongoing collaboration. Yet these two worlds are almost 99 percent disconnected.
Randy Bass
A growing appreciation for the porous boundaries between the classroom and life experience, along with the power of social learning, authentic audiences, and integrative contexts, has created not only promising changes in learning but also disruptive moments in teaching.
Robert G. Sheets and Stephen Crawford
One key to harnessing information technology to improve outcomes and reduce costs is business model innovation that results in more open, unbundled operations in learning and credentialing, research and development, and business management.
