Panel 3: The production of learning experiences: hubs, technologies and new players
After two years from the first MOOC, how have universities embraced ICT as part of their offer, including but not limited to MOOCs? What are short term opportunities and, accordingly, changes being already tested or at least pursued? How is the "blend" many have been talking about concretely unfolding? Are there early lessons to share? How are these changes perceived by the public and the private sector at regional and local level, and what are concrete policy implications for the two? This session will offer an update and outlook on learning experiences from top universities and other players in higher education.
Moderator: Michele Petochi, World Economic Forum
