Can design save higher education?
Today, college-bound students are faced with the prospect of crippling debt and little preparation for real-world jobs. The rise of the — massive open online course — is one potential solution. But with the viability of an online education still in question, it’s unclear what students can do to prepare for successful careers. In this panel, we’ll discuss how we can draw from systems design, interaction design, user experience, product design, and visual design to improve online courses and make them an accessible, challenging, and vital part of the new face of education.
