Wes Kao


Passive methods of online education are failing learners. MOOCs, initially heralded for bringing online education to the masses, have been suffering from completion rates of only 3-7% for far too long.
Learners are hungry for active learning and opportunities to engage with a community of instructors & like-minded peers. In this session, Wes Kao will discuss the shift away from passive online learning to course models that utilize accountability and community-building to produce better outcomes.
