Why is MIT ignoring 25 years of research into online learning? | Tony Bates

Why is MIT ignoring 25 years of research into online learning? | Tony Bates | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

Tony Bates: "In my previous post, there were two sessions at the LINC 2013 conference that referred specifically to MIT’s own strategies for technology-enabled learning within MIT. These resulted in my asking the following question towards the end of the conference:


Why is MIT ignoring 25 years of research into online learning and 100 years research into how students learn in its design of online courses? "

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

It's more complex that 'nerds vs. educators' but sometimes it does feel like the MOOC revolution is driven by the hardware & software with little regard for the hard won and deeply researched lessons learned since the days when online learning was considered the Devil's stepchild.


Bate knows online learning as well as anyone on the planet. With the entrepreneur-tech-ed pundits listen?  Obviously not. 8-(

Librarians: Your Most Valuable MOOC Supporters

Librarians: Your Most Valuable MOOC Supporters | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it
Librarians are a major part of universities, but they're almost entirely missing from the MOOC conversation. That's a big mistake.

 

Libraries offer resources, from research to licensing support, that are essential to the future of MOOCs as they grow both in numbers and in seriousness. As MOOCs become an increasingly valid and valuable resource, it’s clear that they can benefit from another great educational resource: librarians.
