Massive open online courses (MOOCs) have quickly become one of the most polarizing developments in higher education. Many in higher ed see these MOOCs as innovations that could mark the turning point in how education is delivered, while others see MOOCs as a distraction, a phase, and a means for diluting a college degree. Whatever your feelings on these massive classes, the developments in how they’re created, delivered, and received have come at a furious pace over the past few months, and we’ve compiled our most pertinent MOOC coverage right here, all in once place.
It doesn’t take a university’s resident budgetary whiz to know that long-term technology cost savings trumps in-the-moment savings, especially when those long-haul savings bring a cutting-edge technology and proven reliability…
The idea of bring your own device (BYOD) for connectivity has been well recognized in most networking environments. Yet some corporations are still struggling to understand its potential impacts. For them, the concept of users attaching privately owned and managed smartphones, tablets or laptops to their secure networks is a relatively new and worrisome concept. However, it is a challenge that customers in higher education have been dealing with for years as students have increasingly turned to easy-to-connect and affordable laptops as study aids.
For years, thought leaders in higher education have warned of disruptive change looming on the horizon. And with the advent of massive open online courses, or MOOCs, many proclaimed that the forces of change had come to a head. Now that students could access high-quality courses on any topic, any time, anywhere—for free—what need would they have for a traditional college education?
As the core instructional platform for a college or university, a learning

We talked with officials from several colleges and universities who recently
evaluated learning management systems for use at their institutions. The lessons
they learned can help others who are going through a similar process.

With more than 50,000 students, the Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) system is the
largest public education institution in Virginia, and the second largest community college in the
United States. For 40 years now, NOVA’s Extended Learning Institution (ELI) has offered online
learning and today, more than 9,000 students are enrolled each semester in one of their more than
300 totally-online courses.
3D printing labs on college campuses expand educational horizons and workforce readiness by opening students to the world of professional grade 3D printers. This white paper outlines Stratasys’ “Superlabs” program which helps colleges start their own 3D printing labs, including preferred pricing for materials and equipment, access to beta programs, a direct support hotline, and an annual site visit to learn how to do more with their technology.
In this report, we showcase two 3D printing programs in higher education: Design for Manufacturing: 3D Printing Certification at Dunwoody College and 3D Printing and Product Design at East Stroudsburg University.
