Social Media Suggestions for Your Online Course - 2 views

  • When you consider the possible uses for social media in your courses: find a tool with features that fit your needs, start slowly with just one new project or activity, evaluate your experience and your students' experiences, and continue to revise your approach.
  • Develop your digital identity. Last on my list, but certainly not least, how are you presenting yourself online? What will students in your next term find when they Google your name? Think about how your thoughtful use of social media could help students get to know you and connect with you online. Consider social networking options like LinkedIn and activities such as blogging.
  • Encourage online study groups. The collaborative nature of most social media applications makes them a great fit for bringing students together online for conversations, group projects, writing assignments, and more.

  • Stock a course library. Social bookmarking sites, such as Diigo, can be used to not only tag and groups articles and other web-based resources for your students to access, but also allows you and them to leave notes and highlight selected passages. Group forums are also an option.
  • Create a movie trailer. How do you welcome students and introduce them to your course?
  • Develop a dynamic presentation. While the debate about online lectures continues, there are social options available to enhance your presentations and those of your students.
  • Create a class hashtag. These keywords used with the "#" symbol allow you and your students to filter the Twitter stream for information related to the course
  • Don't add social media, or any new tool, just for the sake of adding it. Explore the ways in which these applications can help you and your students reach course goals and objectives, encouraging collaboration and engagement along the way.
  • Social media options not only allow for presentation of information, but also support connections among participants who access the information. Researchers Andreas M. Kaplan and Michael Haenlein published a definition of social media that includes "applications that … allow creation and exchange of user generated content."

Do Your Internet Habits Indicate Depression? - 0 views

  • When online, do you frequently switch between applications, use tons of file-sharing software, and send a lot of e-mail and instant messages? If so, you might be depressed, according to a study to be published in an upcoming issue of IEEE Technology and Society Magazine.
  • Frequent switching may be related with difficulty concentrating, which is also an indicator of depressive symptoms among students.
  • the results don’t indicate that an excessive amount of file-sharing, switching between apps, and chatting online actually causes depression; correlation does not imply causation. The research simply shows that those who have depression are likely to use the Internet in certain ways.

Pearson's "Free" LMS - 0 views

  • Many schools are rethinking the LMS, not just because these tools have cost them a pretty penny, but because they're looking for ways that can further student collaboration and that can emphasize content and learning and not just administration. That could put Pearson in a good position to be a go-to tool for schools, particularly if the focus becomes content, something Pearson does hold market control over. As the Delta Initiative's Phil Hill told Inside Higher Ed, Pearson "wants to change the perception of an LMS to [make colleges] say: �Hey, that's a commodity, that's a delivery system � and really education, and the education system, needs to be about the content itself and how students interact with that content.'"

  • drian Sannier, senior vice president of product at Pearson, told Inside Higher Ed that the new OpenClass can be used absolutely for free. No licensing costs, no costs for maintenance, and no costs for hosting. So this is a freer offer than Moodle is. It's a freer offer than any other in the space. And from the email I received from the PR firm handling the announcement, I give you these gems: "Pearson Launches First Truly Free and Open Learning Platform for Higher Ed." The tool "Provides Open Access." And this is where we need to stop and scrutinize what's happening here and look past the invocations of "free" and "open." Why would Pearson offer a free LMS? For one thing, Pearson doesn't need to sell OpenClass. Its emphasis -- indeed, its strategy -- lies elsewhere. Pearson is the largest education company in the world -- with or without success in the LMS market -- with profits of �208 million for the first half of this year alone. Its educational sales are up 9%; it's educational profits are up 31%. Much those sales and profits come from educational content: textbooks -- both print and digital -- as well as other curriculum offerings. (Much of the profits come from assessment products and services too -- Pearson sells the textbooks and the standardized tests. That's pretty damn lucrative, clearly.) Pearson can give away OpenClass in the hopes that schools will go for the "up-sell" and buy the company's other offerings. Many schools are rethinking the LMS, not just because these tools have cost them a pretty penny, but because they're looking for ways that can further student collaboration and that can emphasize content and learning and not just administration. That could put Pearson in a good position to be a go-to tool for schools, particularly if the focus becomes content, something Pearson does hold market control over. As the Delta Initiative's Phil Hill told Inside Higher Ed, Pearson "wants to change the perception of an LMS to [make colleges] say: �Hey, that's a commodity, that's a delivery system � and really education, and the education system, needs to be about the content itself and how students interact with that content.'" For its part, Pearson says that it's not going to lock users in to using just its content. But I can't help but wonder if that's true. After all, I think we need to question its usage of adjectives like "free" and "open" here. Furthermore when a company touts Google's involvement when really, what we have here is just a fairly simple and straight-forward integration with Google Apps, we should be a little suspicious about the labeling and the marketing and our consumption habits.
