    What contributes to this high dropout rate and what are some of the solutions?
    As instructors, what can we do to mitigate some of these reasons for dropouts?
    Discussions are an important design element to lower dropout rates even in classes that are not normally a discussion based class. Computer applications courses are a good example of this.
    How large of a learning curve is there before the student can become proficient to participate in the course and start on the real learning objectives.

Emerging Technologies PSE - 3 views

    It really doesn't seem all that long ago that Powerpoint was THE new, cool thing to use in teaching. These days it seems that 80% of the time a teacher starts to use it the students get glazed over eyes. It is often too easy for us as teachers to take on a new technology but never develop the skill beyond the basics. Could this be the future of online learning as well?!? It's just too hard to keep up with all the new stuff! But instead of using that as an excuse to never try new things, we should regularly see what is available and incorporate one or two new things at a time. ESPECIALLY if we are going to be effective online teachers. This PSE allows the user to search for lists, explanations, and tutorials of current and up-and-coming technologies on the online-learning scene.

US DOE Evaluation of Evidence-based Practices - 2 views

    The article Evaluation of Evidence-Based Practices in Online Learning: A Meta-Analysis and Review of Online Learning Studies is a study undertaken at the behest of the U.S, Department of Education to evaluate online learning practices through a meta-analysis of research. It is intended for policy-makers, administrators and educators to use to make research based decisions on online learning and teacher preparation at the K-12 level. The original plan was to have it completed by 2008, but there were so few rigorous studies available that they waited until 2010 to include more. In a search of the literature from 1994-2008, only 5 studies were found of sufficient rigor to measure effectiveness of online learning in K-12 students. The remaining 43 studies were for older learners, with most content being from the medical or health care field. The lead author, Dr. Barbara Means, directs the Center for Technology in Learning at SRI International, an independent nonprofit research organization. Her focus is on the relationship between technology, education systems, and student learning. Four research questions were addressed: * How does the effectiveness of online learning compare with that of face-to-face instruction? * Does supplementing face-to-face instruction with online instruction enhance learning? * What practices are associated with more effective online learning? * What conditions influence the effectiveness of online learning? The findings that were most interesting to me were: * Guiding questions provided to discussion groups influence the way students interact, but not the amount they learn. * Learning is enhanced when students can manipulate media or reflect. * Videos do not influence learning more than assigning homework, unless students can manipulate them. * Online quizzes do not influence learning more than homework. * Explicitly taught self-reflection, self-regulation and self

  • In discussions among both new and veteran online instructors, some of the most persistently expressed concerns center upon issues of academic honesty. How does one conduct assessments in an online course? How can you be sure that the person taking the test is actually your student? And that they are acting alone, without the book? With the proliferation of online term-paper mills, how can you be sure that the essay or term paper you receive is actually your student’s work?
