New Article Published Yesterday:  “Artificial intelligence and the academy’s loss of purpose”

Dear Commons Community,

I just had a new article published in the Online Learning Journal (OLJ) yesterday entitled, Artificial intelligence and the academy’s loss of purpose.   

This article speculates on the future of higher education as online technology, specifically adaptive learning and analytics as infused by artificial intelligence software, develops and matures. Online and adaptive learning have already advanced within the academy, but the most significant changes are yet to come. These evolving technologies have the potential to change the traditional roles in our colleges and universities to the point that many educators will reconsider their purposes as teachers, researchers and administrators.

If you are interested in online technology and the future of our colleges and universities, you may find this article a provocative read.
