Muhammad H. Zaman: Higher Ed Online: Curriculum, Context, and the Culture of Innovation:
Higher education around the world is changing, and its changing fast. The digital era, with online courses, electronic resources and real-time interaction with faculty thousands of miles away is going to drastically change the way we teach, interact, engage and ultimately learn. With programs such as MITx and similar initiatives started globally, knowledge will no longer be confined to the ivory towers but will reach those who have not had the opportunity or the means to access it. With increasing mobile phone access globally, "m-education" and innovative ways to access resources through cellular phones will continue to change the landscape of higher education.
