There is no university of the future

Commentary by Stephen Downes

I want to highlight a couple of points from this short article. First, "There is no one model for the future, there will be a wide range of different interpretations from traditional to innovative." This is what was wrong with Sebastian Thrun's prediction that after MOOCs only ten universities would remain. These new technologies create a proliferation of models, methodologies, and institutions. Second, and related to this, traditional credentials, while they may persist, will be supplemented by a wide range of qualifications. "If the new credentials are verifiable and trustworthy and employers accept them then they will become hard currency."
