Arne Krokan is a Norwegian professor in «Teknologi, kommunikasjon, organisasjon og ledelse» at NTNU, and is heavily involved in the IT development at the University. Throught the project «Smart learning», Krokan plans to aid the digitalisation of learning at NTNU and the education sector. During fall 2013 he opened Norway’s first MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) since one of the subjects he was lecturing in «Teknologiendring og samfunnsutvikling», was offered purely as an online course. This was a perfect opportunity for Krokan to take the subject to the next level. Close to a thousand students followed the course during spring 2014.
Krokans ideas might change the way we learn in the future, and it might be smart to check out his speech if you want to be ahead of this development.
