Who will be the Leaders in Global Learning? (IGI Global’s Online Educational Symposium Series), May 17, 2012, 2:00 pm (EDT)

 IGI Global
  • At the onset of distance learning, U.S. universities were the recognized world leaders. The U.S. had the technological advantages due to connectivity and access to computers. That gap is rapidly shrinking as new technology is creating a new transnational distance-learning market. This presentation discusses why global education is the next distance-learning leap, why the race will be more furious, and why the new competitors will be from North and South America, Asia, Europe, and even Africa. Transnational distance learning promises to make education more accessible from the poorest villages in India and China, to the African savannahs, and to rural areas in the U.S. and Canada. This presentation discusses opportunities for universities, as well as risks they will face from foreign universities. National borders blocked traditional universities. These same barriers are porous to transnational distance learning. This presentation is based on Dr. Hogan’s work throughout the South Pacific over the last decade and his new book, Transnational Distance Learning and Marketing Opportunitiesfor Universities.
