Late December, SURF published a study on possible scenarios for the impact of open and online education on Dutch universities. Building on a report by a number of former Pearson employees, SURF identifies 4 possible models for the way in which universities can incorporate open/online education in the business model.
The SURF report sketches four possible scenarios high/low growth of international competition and high/low growth in openness of educational programmes: *) business as usual, *) Marginalisation, *) Evolution, and *) Revolution.
The SURF report advises Dutch universities to develop an institutional vision & strategy on online and open education, to connect this with its vision & strategy for internationalisation, to stimulate innovation and seek partners.
