Blending Quality Learning to Survive the MOOC Invasion!

“Fifteen years from now more than half of the universities will be in bankruptcy, including the state schools (in US)” 

Kodak? Walkman (Sony)? Are we ready for the changes required to survive the disruptive and global learning innovations invading the world of education today?

Looking forward to my talk and participating in the 2nd Blended Learning Symposium on 28 November 2013 at UCSI University, Kuala Lumpur. Al-Hamdulilla, life is getting back to normal, and looking forward to Insya-Allah a productive period in the coming months exploring new ideas to spark the learning brain back to life. However, first let's...


This talk, focuses first on Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and how they will play a critical role in triggering Higher Education institutions around the world to accelerate the urgency to innovate their learning and teaching models. The second half of the talk will focus on how we can transform the students’ learning experiences using a blended approach infusing Flipped Classroom, Brain-Designed learning, Gamification, more authentic assessment methods, etc.


1 Super Brain Yoga session, 2 online activities, 2 short videos and 92 slides in 60 minutes (including 15 minutes for Q&A). Mission impossible? Not really, because my mission is not to finish, but trigger participants to rethink how they learn and teach in a disruptive, uncertain and learning overloaded world. Mission accomplished...Insya-Allah :)
