A lot has been written about how academia, pardon me, traditional academia is gasping its last breath. While I’m not convinced that is entirely true, Sophia.org certainly goes along way towards proving that point.
Forget distance learning. Forget YouTube.com/edu.
” Sophia is a social teaching and learning platform that taps the teacher in all of us and enhances the learning process by providing access to a wealth of knowledge, help, instruction, standards-aligned content, and expertise available to learners everywhere.
We want to harness technology for the betterment of the educational system as a whole. We can all help others learn. And Sophia’s mission is to be a catalyst in this educational movement.”
A catalyst in this educational movement. Powerful statement! But will it stand up to the ever-changing landscape of academia?
