Quality in e-learning: a framework for promoting and assuring quality in virtual institutions - Masoumi - 2011 - Journal of Computer Assisted Learning - Wiley Online Library | About learning and more | Scoop.it

With the growing demand for e-learning along with striving for excellence associated with globalization, there are worldwide calls for enhancing and assuring quality in e-learning, specifically in the context of the developing countries. Such calls for quality enhancement, accountability, added value, value for money, self-evaluation, and role players' satisfaction in higher education settings cannot go unheeded. Addressing the concerns regarding enhancing and assuring quality in e-learning, a comprehensive e-quality framework is developed by taking into account the pros and cons of the previous models, frameworks, and studies of e-quality. This e-quality framework offers a structured set of factors and benchmarks as a tool for practical quality work with e-learning in virtual institutions.

The classroom of the future is on your doorstep. We’re getting slapped in the face with technology (sorry about that, partially my fault), flipped classroom models, and innovative ideas.

So what is the current state of the 21st century classroom? How many teachers have computers in their classroom? What are the 3 biggest reasons to use technology in your classroom? A new infographic from Open Colleges spells it out. We had the honor of helping them with this infographic so please spend at least half a second to check it out. Make me think that someone actually sees some of our hard work!

Improving the quality of e-learning: lessons from the eMM - Marshall - 2011 - Journal of Computer Assisted Learning - Wiley Online Library

Improving the quality of e-learning: lessons from the eMM - Marshall - 2011 - Journal of Computer Assisted Learning - Wiley Online Library | About learning and more | Scoop.it

The quality of e-learning can be defined in many different ways, reflecting different stakeholders and the complexity of the systems and processes used in higher education. These different conceptions of quality can be mutually contradictory and, while politically significant, may also be beyond the direct control or influence of institutional leaders. The e-learning maturity model (eMM) provides a framework for e-learning quality improvement that measures the capability of institutions to sustainably engage in e-learning and visualizes that capability in a way that assists leaders and managers using that information to undertake systematic and targeted improvements in their institution's e-learning activities. This paper synthesizes the outcomes of multiple international eMM assessments to extract a set of starting points for institutions intending to improve the quality of e-learning experienced by their students.

Enhancing e-learning quality through the application of the AKUE procedure model - Bremer - 2011 - Journal of Computer Assisted Learning - Wiley Online Library

Enhancing e-learning quality through the application of the AKUE procedure model - Bremer - 2011 - Journal of Computer Assisted Learning - Wiley Online Library | About learning and more | Scoop.it

The paper describes the procedure model AKUE, which aims at the improvement and assurance of quality and cost efficiency in the context of the introduction of e-learning and the development of digital learning material. AKUE divides the whole planning and implementation process into four different phases: analysis, conception, implementation, and evaluation. AKUE analyses at which level of the organization or curriculum decisions have to be made. Accordingly, it differentiates various types of projects for which different planning methods and quality criteria are applied. For each step, specific worksheets and procedures are applied in order to support planning and decision making. Through the definition of outcomes and feedback loops at each step, quality standards and cost efficiency can be achieved.

Viewing mobile learning from a pedagogical perspective | Kearney | Research in Learning Technology

Viewing mobile learning from a pedagogical perspective
Matthew Kearney, Sandra Schuck, Kevin Burden, Peter Aubusson


Abstract


Mobile learning is a relatively new phenomenon and the theoretical basis is currently under development. The paper presents a pedagogical perspective of mobile learning which highlights three central features of mobile learning: authenticity, collaboration and personalisation, embedded in the unique timespace contexts of mobile learning. A pedagogical framework was developed and tested through activities in two mobile learning projects located in teacher education communities: Mobagogy, a project in which faculty staff in an Australian university developed understanding of mobile learning; and The Bird in the Hand Project, which explored the use of smartphones by student teachers and their mentors in the United Kingdom. The framework is used to critique the pedagogy in a selection of reported mobile learning scenarios, enabling an assessment of mobile activities and pedagogical approaches, and consideration of their contributions to learning from a socio-cultural perspective.
