Steve Jobs Advice to Educators

Another great tidbit from Jim Gianopulos.

A Studio Chief Pens Revealing First-Person Steve Jobs Remembrance:

I last spoke to Steve a few weeks ago when he called a couple of days after he had resigned from Apple. I had sent him an e-mail congratulating him for finally quitting his day job. He sounded frail but was still energetic and had lots of new ideas and plans. We talked for a while about politics, music, our families and, of course, business. At one point, he said: "Hey, do me a favor, will you? Don't let what happened to the music business happen to yours -- keep coming up with better ways to provide people with your content."[Emphasis added - MQ]

While this advice is focused on the movie business, it applies just as easily to higher education. The shift in how we teach and how students learn is already underway. How many of us are going to get left behind?
