5 Ed-Tech Ideas Face The Chronicle’s Version of ‘Shark Tank’

Jeffrey R. Young, DOAJ E-Learning, May 08, 2015
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is from last week but was enough fun to merit highlighting in any case. Five 'ed tech ideas' are put in front of a panel of Chronicle critics playing the role of 'sharks' (or, in Canada, 'dragons') who determine whether or not they think they should fund the idea. Not all of the ideas are strictly 'ed tech' ideas (just as well; they need something to get behind). The 'products' include:

  • a tool to help professors build interactive online materials
  • gap-year program to possibly replace the need for residential colleges
  • career-services tool for college students
  • an argument to do away with the credit hour
  • pay-per-use textbook-rental service
