“Exploring the Fringe: Flipping, Microcredentials, and MOOCs,” our latest white paper, defines these three fringe formats—dubbed “fringe” because our research shows that none has above a 10-percent adoption rate among associations—and then looks at when each might make sense for an association to pursue and factors to consider before jumping on the trendy bandwagon.
You can grab the white paper right now simply by clicking the link below. No strings attached (though we would be truly grateful if you would share this page with others.)
The white paper also includes the following:
- Brief from-the-field stories of what associations are doing with these fringe formats
- Excerpts from an interview with Curt Bonk, an authority on emerging technologies for learning
- Thoughts on why associations have a leg-up in today’s competitive world of professional education and concrete ideas for using these formats, from Tamer Ali (his company Digital Ignite, which is now part of YourMembership, sponsored this white paper so we can make it available to you for free)
