Advice on Online Learning from 13 World Experts

By Maxim Jean-Louis as told by Tony Bates

In early March 2011, as part of the process of engagement in my role as Special Advisor to Ontario’s Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities for an Ontario Online Institute, I invited a number of prominent Canadian and international experts in online and distance education to respond to five key questions:

1. What is the biggest challenge facing online and distance learning in general today?

2. What is the biggest opportunity that online and distance learning in general has today?

3. Keeping in mind the biggest challenge and the biggest opportunity for online and distance learning today, what is the one overriding step that Ontario ought to take as it attempts to take its online learning system to the next level?

4. Conversely, what is the one thing it should absolutely avoid?

5. Which current or emerging technology has the potential of radically transforming online and distance learning?
