Countries adopting e-learning University will win next war of education and competitiveness

This is my second of series of article:

As technology matures there would new actors which come up to stage to replace old one. Like amazon replaced many book store and De shaw  algorithmic trading replaced many manual high frequency trading company , similary netflix is doing on cable distribution same way New Online university offering everything online from under Graduate to post graduate to PHD are going to winner in next line..think of optimization 1. One brilliant professor can give a lecture to whole learners across continent.

2. University can run hunderds of creative course without thinking about enrollment…

Think about country competitiveness person can work at same time come at night work on this PHD he is not bothered whether its complete in 5 yrs or 10 yrs..because he is doing out of interest he want to do it better..that is reason even after job he is still enroll in Online PHD program run by professor and he is taking time out daily..think transformation its going to bring about in country instead of 10,000 PHD student there are 1,00,000 PHD student…let say 30% make it in 5 yrs.. still we have out of PHD got triple to 30,0000…

Leave PHD think a cook in local store learning cookery lesson online …10,00,000 new cook emerges every year…new car mechanics , new carpenters , new plumbers ….4

Can we stop the direction where is water is bound to hit … no we cannot … They say water will find its own level..Each individual in online university finds his own level..no restriction which course u can choose with lots of optional. Each person differentiating itself to market… people choosing courses like Artist build carpet…mixing colors like mixing courses… mystical spiritual experience.. Why I say so? remember when we entered into courses we used to say this is the course we want to do in life..? here we… the power to choose in hand of customer….

Country giving maximum choice in hand of customers are going to win the next battle of creating talents and competitiveness… What wastage would be eliminated

1. paper work..standing in line for forms.. coming and going to university.. sending ur child to university u can monitor anytime anywhere….

2. Surely once this openup..everyone will flood in to PHD online…graduate to masters to PHD…every year students with work graduating to next level…companies have flood of PHD.. to companies

3 if traditional university did not find enough enrollment then course is stopped..because professor will not teach 2 student..where as Online University 2 student from each country still become 360 students..so when these 360 student do PHD..

4 super specialized student cutting across subject for e.g and dental tooth making company is using nanotechnology+bio chemistry+ human tooth + anatomy + mechanics(company does not need doctor but need engineer) so when online university student chooses this courses right from under grads…and super specialize in post grad ..company cannot find better talent…… its going to be the next future…..either u ride it or be ridden by it…

It does not mean university will not exist. Only mean university will exist in different format..

Problem in india/china was never quantity its quality:

What I see and have experienced in past problem of unemployability comes due to commodatization of education..Also due to corruption is education systems..where many college just award internal marks to get student through make life of student enjoyable in college rather than hard work  What I mean by commoditization is everyone doing same thing…think for last 30 yrs we are all doing BE computer science but world have divided this into 30 subject likeBE in space computing, BE image processing..etc…there is no differentiation .when its not there person goes out in market is bound to be treated like like commodity an not a brand..this is what online education change..people can super specialize choosing there own subjects…

This unbranding or commoditization is valid to all countries in some respect. So Graduate /Post Graduate will be employable only when they differentiate themselves from the market. This where power of choice which rest n consumer to choose subject comes and play major role in future…

Hardware or Software Cycle keeps complementing System on Chip Vs software driven systems

In year 1999 when i was reading magazine It was saying “end of road for hardware or chip design”. It was not referring to fact that Moore’s laws failure. Moore’s law state microprocessor will double its processing capacity every six months.Magazince was not refering to these challenges to material science to fit more transistors in small chip and size had reached its peak but it was referring to increasing chip development is more software and less hardware…in 1980 chip development or VLSI was 90% hardware and 10% software..while in 1990 ratio went from 90:10 to 70:30 in early half of 21st century 2000’s ratio is continously decreasing.What trends were referring that the VLSI will be driven by complete software systems..surely we have Verilog, VHDL ..and magazine gave a ratio for future 2010 it will be 90:10 completely reversed…or completely software driven..lets see its true or not now.in 1999 when i was reading VHDL or Verilog developing adder and half adders some digital design Decoder And Encoders,Mux,Flip Flop And Latches,Counters,Memories,Parity And CRC,Modeling With Switch Primitives,Modeling With Gate Primitives,User Defined Primitives,PLI Examples,Verilog UART Model,Verilog Arbiter Model.Way back we used Cadence toolkit for EDA.

EDA tool market has not changed since then in terms of companies operating with Synopsys,Cadence,Mentor Graphics taking top three slots. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_design_automation

IS now Software to hardware ration in Chip design is 90:10? ir is completely software driven..

Answer is no. It has come to just reduce the error.its easy to rectify error on software or control process.Where has chip design moved…

VLSI system evolution:

1:1950 :           Transistors

1960:                Integrated Circuits

1970:               Microprocessors

1980:               Digital Signal Processors

1990:               FPGA/ASIC (Application specific Integrated circuits ASIC like TV remote,washing machine control etc very popular now

2000               System on Chip (SOC) like digital camera,ipad,smart phone…with every circuit built in multiple small chip reducing the size of device like whole computer with RAM,harddisk,processor all miniaturized and compacted into chip…

Now we see iPhone,iPad, Mobile system everything driven miniaturized VLSI system design, There are sensor networks pg and pay devices,devices talking to each other each will be driven by IC’s and VLSI circuits..so is now hardware cycle will overtake software cycle may answer is still no. it cannot happen either way…its lik both software and hardware are matching itself to another complementing each other..A software moved into hardware areas like smartphones so has VLSI moved into software ipad being more popular then old desktop…Hardware technology is matching expectation…

What’s future for System on chip? Must see the link below:

http://www.extremetech.com/computing/126235-soc-vs-cpu-the-battle-for-the-future-of-computing

with Ubiquitous computing and sensor network huge data which is generated.More ubiquity means more chip and more sensor again chip and more software to control,pass instruction and analyze data…both VLSI and software and matching upto expectation…

Challenges to material science once again we say wll start emerging around 2020

Since constructs like if …else or for are same as mordern langauges as in Verilog or VHDL? Mordern laguage experiment with VHDL started long back in 2004. here is sun paper for reference highlights Java in EDA world.
