PREDICTION #7 OF 20 from year 2000
Mixtures of online and face-to-face education will become more common than programs that offer either one alone. The most widely used patterns will be:
- Courses in which students meet face-to-face with each other and the teacher(s) some of the time and in which they are also assigned combinations of group work and independent work including a variety of media and tasks; e.g., electronic mail, the Web, new technology applications, books, writing papers, science labs, etc.
- Programs or sequences of courses, in which some of the courses include regularly scheduled face-to-face group meetings of students with faculty, and some of the courses do not. The latter may be completely “distant” and asynchronous, or may include some live communications at a distance.
