What do you like about your role?
That we can provide access to some of the world’s best Universities to students from all round the world via online delivery, and that we can directly impact their experience.
Share three predictions on the future of Edtech.
- 1 – Learner-centric technology will usurp the traditional walled technology systems.
- If the impact of your technology can’t be measured or analysed instantly, then it won’t succeed.
- We won’t talk about online or on-campus learning, it’ll just be ‘learning’ delivered on whatever modality suits that student at that point in time.
What technologies do you believe have the potential to transform the education industry?
The ones that haven’t been built yet.
Looking at the key trends over the past 5 years in edtech, what would you say have been the key areas of change that are impacting edtech today? Anything unexpected that surprised you? Trends that were overhyped and never met their expected potential?
I think still think the traditional LMS has been too slow to evolve. It’s 2017, and your average consumer is experiencing customer-centric digital experiences in just about every aspect of their life – from personal banking, to ordering a taxi, to getting food delivered – yet their learning and study experience in a University course is somehow still mostly delivered in a confined, limited learning management system, and it baffles me how that hasn’t evolved faster.
When you think about joining EdTechXAsia this year, what are you looking forward to? What makes you excited about our event in Singapore?
As always, the opportunity to network, and hopefully uncover something innovative that you hadn’t heard or seen before.
