Goodbye Zaption. Hello Edpuzzle. - 0 views

  •  
    "nd ten minutes after finding out that Zaption was closing up shop, I stumbled across Edpuzzle -- which offers the same feature set as Zaption -- the ability to create annotated video tutorials, the ability to ask students questions and automatically grade their answers, the ability to see how many times students watched a tutorial.

MOOCs and exercise bikes - more in common than you'd think - 0 views

  •  
    "If you have an exercise bike in the back room, you could be the small selection of people that use it everyday to get fit. But then again, you could be one of many more who bought it in the hope of regular practice but were unable to make it part of your routine. The MOOC or Massive Open Online Course, which has come to prominence this year, often has much the same effect. Students may enrol in the online free courses from prestigious universities in their tens of thousands, but overwhelmingly they bomb out with attrition rates up to 80-90%."
