This paper explores a new higher education paradigm, given the changing environment that will come with the advance of globalization and the rapid development of the Internet. As economies revolve around a global network and the value of knowledge, societies rely on universities to help shape future education in an emerging knowledge society. As teachers are already finding that they need to adapt to the presence of the Internet, university managers and administrators will need to adapt their structures, strategies, procedures, and programs to deal with the processes of globalization. Based on international research, this paper presents a vision and a paradigm from which higher education might be constructed. The Sloan-C’s Five Pillars to improve online learning and new applications, HyperReality and Croquet, are examined as potential platforms to reframe future developments.
