Crafting Course Experiences
Daphne Koller Creates Active Students in This Online Education Keynote

By: Romina S. Cortellucci (Star) Aug 2, 12

Today’s world is filled with people who do not have access to a higher education, and this problem is addressed through this online education keynote by Stanford professor Daphne Koller. A solution to this issue is bringing online free courses from some of the top colleges and universities of the world to allow people worldwide to receive a valuable education. 

Koller believes that allowing students to create customizable curriculums that channel people’s personalized interests is a way to keep pupils actively involved. This keynote is a call to action that advocates moving away from the one-size-fits-all model of education.

Another change brought about by online learning is the rethinking of traditional one-hour lectures. Instead of being an hour long, which can be tedious, short, modular units can be more effective.
