MOOCs meet your match: the MBC - 0 views

  •  
    "MOOCs will get better quickly. There are important reasons for some universities to do this. Soon there may routinely be as much or more learning in MOOCs. The response, however, should not be for everyone to start offering MOOCs." Enter the MBC - the Massively Better Classroom. A terrific analysis and collection of links by Jose Bowen.

Georgia State U. to Grant Course Credit for MOOCs - 0 views

  •  
    MOOCs are in the news -- not surprising. I decided to pass along two articles from yesterday's Chronicle of Higher Education; this is the first. The title basically tells the story, but underlying the main point are two sub-points.

    First, the ho-hum nature of the GSU attitude: "the Georgia State University Senate had little difficulty in finding a way to provide credit for MOOCs." I wonder about that.

    Second, the offhand announcement of what could significantly ratchet up departmental work loads: "academic departments (will) determine if (students completing MOOCs) have the required understanding of the material."

'Bill of Rights' Seeks to Protect Students' Interests as Online Learning Expands - 0 views

  •  
    This is the second of two MOOC-related stories in the Chronicle yesterday.

    I am "taking" a MOOC at the moment, which is taught by a professor at Duke University. I do get the feeling that he is treating me (and all the students in the MOOC) with respect, but I can imagine a situation in which this may not be the case. The conveners of the meeting that drafted this "Bill of Rights" clearly want to send the message that online educators should have the best interests of their students FIRST and foremost in their minds. I stress FIRST here because the drafters of the document want to avoid having MOOC students become a commodity that can be sold such as with social media participants (e.g., Facebook).

A Video About Questions and Possible Trends in Education - 1 views

  •  
    This is Paul Andersen, a high school teacher in Bozeman, MT. He was 2011 Montana Teacher of the Year, and he has delivered Ted talks and is a prolific web video producer. In this video he describes some of the trends in the evolution of educational text books, but, moreover, he touches upon some recurring deep problems in teaching modern students. These are problems for teachers, especially us at the higher end of education as the students coming our way will be more demanding of our product. I think this is a large driving force for pedagogical change.

    I thought this was a tough one as far as tags are concerned; if you have better ideas for a tag, please send it my way.

"History Harvest" Project May Spawn a New Kind of MOOC - 0 views

  •  
    The MOOC conversation is dominated by examples of digitizing the large lecture hall. This is a deviation from the historical roots of the MOOC, and in this Chronicle article a very different kind of open educational activity is proposed.

Giving Everyone at College a "Domain of One's Own" - 1 views

  •  
    A worthwhile interview about the University of Mary Washington program to offer every student and professor their own domain name and a significant amount of control over which web publishing platforms they use. I find the discussions about privacy vs. publicy in a networked society to be the intellectual meat of the piece - the technology issues, while complex, are also just logistics to be solved or worked around.

Adapting PowerPoint Lectures for Online Delivery: Best Practices | Faculty Focus - 1 views

  •  
    The title of this one pretty much sums up the content completely. There is a link to some good vs. bad examples of PowerPoint slides, but they are pretty self-evident. The guidelines discussed in this article are worth exploring even if you are not developing a MOOC or a smaller online course -- for example, if you just want to flip a class or two.
