      This would can be a great resource for those looking to connect with others professionally. I have used it over the summer months when not in the office to work with colleges.

      As a student, teacher and coach organization is crucial.  I often use sticky notes placing them above my desk. For myself the resource is great!

      I have found quizzes to be a very effective way to text students and athletes effectively.  I think this could be a great resource for creating them. However, it may take some time for me to utilize them correctly.

      What I like most about this resource is much for effective way to SHARE research and knowledge. While you are still collecting research it much easier on the web then a stack of papers in a binder on my desk.
    This interactive, white-board like site, is great for allowing students to share a screen and communicate with each other about their work. I see a lot of potential for use here, with group assignments. The only down-side for on-line courses would be if your students are spread out among many time zones. I need to play with it more to see if you can save what you are working on and come and go from the group over time. That would help with that one disadvantage.
    Twiddla seems like a great way to get students interacting on a group project in an on-line course.

Tip Sheet - Collaborative Learning Community - 0 views

  • create a more realistic online presence and can replace the overused text-based introductions and feedback with something more natural and novel
  • Consequently, students get a feel for who the instructor is, put a face to the name and consider the "virtual space" less intimidating and lonesome.
    Voki avatars that help "personalize" the instructor in an on-line course.
    I like the idea of being able to help student feel like they know me, as an instructor, to be able to help students feel more connected to the teacher and in turn the course. I definitely want to try this Web 2.0 tool.

The Future of Online Teaching and Learning in Higher Education: The Survey Sa... - 0 views

      Future of online teaching and learning =
      linking pedagogy, technology, and learner needs
  • Given the demand for online learning, the plethora of online technologies to incorporate into teaching, the budgetary problems, and the opportunities for innovation, we argue that online learning environments are facing a "perfect e-storm," linking pedagogy, technology, and learner needs.2
  • significant gap separated preferred and actual online instructional practices.

  • Although some discussions in the literature relate to effective practices in the use of emerging technologies for online education, empirical evidence to support or refute the effectiveness of such technologies, or, perhaps more importantly, guidance on how to use such tools effectively based on empirical evidence, is lacking.
  • online survey
  • 42 questions grouped into three sections related to the current status and future trends of online education in higher educatio
  • 12,000 who received the e-mail request, 562 completed the surve
  • Again, the focus was on enhancing content and associated content delivery, not on the social interactions, cross-cultural exchanges, or new feedback channels that wider bandwidth could offer.
  • Such responses indicate that respondents still see learning as content-driven, not based on social interactions and distributed intelligence. The emphasis remains on a knowledge-transmission approach to education, not one rich in peer feedback, online mentoring, or cognitive apprenticeship.
  • Such responses indicate that higher education institutions might be wise to explore certificate and short-program offerings rather than full degree programs.
  • enhancing pedagogy is perhaps the most important factor in navigating the perfect e-storm
  • respondents said that training students to self-regulate their learning (22 percent) was needed most, followed by better measures of student readiness (17 percent), better evaluation of student achievement (17 percent), and better CMSs to track student learning. Nine percent said additional technology training is needed.
  • learning outcomes and pedagogical skills.
  • most important skills for an online instructor during the next few years will be how to moderate or facilitate learning and how to develop or plan for high-quality online courses (see Table 2).
  • online instructors are moderators or facilitators of student learning.26
  • findings also indicated that, in general, respondents envisioned the Web in the next few years more as a tool for virtual teaming or collaboration, critical thinking, and enhanced student engagement than as an opportunity for student idea generation and expression of creativity. This is not surprising, given that most instruction in higher education is focused on consumption and evaluation of knowledge, not on the generation of it.
  • Perhaps online training departments and units need to offer more examples of how to successfully embed creative and generative online tasks and activities.
