What an incredibly exciting time for educators! A sea change is taking place in the education sector (primarily in secondary and higher education), and it has become impossible to ignore the heavy influence of mobile technology and how it is playing a huge part in everything we do, including educating and learning. With our longstanding backgrounds in education, information technology, and mobile learning, we at MassiveU offer up a vibrant, innovative mix for educators who want distance education to provide the greatest experience for them and for their students.
New technologies, models and solutions, along with decreases in state funding, increases in enrollment, and a rise in student loan defaults, are making distance education infinitely more important to educators:
The New EDU Imperative
Educators need to take a proactive approach in using new technologies and developing new solutions that do ALL of the following:
- Enhance the outcome of paying students.
- Expand global reach, reputation, and revenues.
- Foster the value of content and associated subject matter experts.
The Movement Toward Mobile: MassiveU was born from Angelo Biasi’s self-designed NYU SCPS course called Mobile Marketing for the Small to Medium-sized Business – the first course of its kind taught online and over mobile phones. "I saw first-hand how learning in the form of mobile apps can add significant experiential value to students from all over the world, who just so happen to have different carriers, devices, data plans and translations."
