Dear E-learning platforms all over the world,
since I want to become a startup teacher (being a veteran futurist), I have been investigating E-learning platforms for over a year now. It’s a real jungle out there! I can’t see the difference anymore between LMS’s, authoring tools, inclusive platforms and the dozens of other names you use. I met a bunch of lovely sweet people, don’t get me wrong, but I am not happy at all. No one offers the Wow! futuristic service that I am looking for. So I drafted a shopping list for the Uber in Education. Since one half of the world is going to teach the other half in the future…
My shopping list. Only 3 items…
A. Socialize. Stop teaching, start social learning! Learning is something you do in a group, not stand-alone.
B. Reward. Use a mix of social and financial rewards and time driven threats (Do it Now or or Get Fired) for completing the course. Gamewise of course.
Dear all, can you please make this happen quickly so I can put it in my shopping basket? It is OK if you start with numbers 1 and 2 and skip 3 for the time being. I am willing to pay a modest fee of say 10 Euro monthly subscription. Can you please speed it up a little bit? I am in a hurry.
