Lloyd's Video Analysis Tool

Lloyd's Video Analysis Tool | aect | Scoop.it
Lloyd Rieber has generously made his video analysis tool available for educator and students. In his words, "Although not as powerful as other published video analysis tools you might find, I think the tool I've created is very simple to use. And, I think this tool is actually a good choice for any faculty or doctoral students who want to do some initial analysis of any videos they recorded as part of research (e.g. classroom student interactions). It also includes a transcription tool to facilitate the typing of transcripts of any narration in the video. Personally, I've found it very useful in tagging and commenting some home movies for family members. I think there lots of other uses as well." Having participated in the beta test, I fully concur with, and support this initiative. Thank you Dr. Rieber!

European Journal of Open, Distance and E-Learning

European Journal of Open, Distance and E-Learning | aect | Scoop.it
Abstract
Millions of users around the world have registered on Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) offered by hundreds of universities (and other organizations) worldwide. Creating and offering these courses costs thousands of pounds. However, at present, revenue generated by MOOCs is not sufficient to offset these costs. The sustainability of MOOCs is a pressing concern as they incur not only upfront creation costs but also maintenance costs to keep content relevant, as well as on-going facilitation support costs while a course is running and re-running. At present, charging a fee for certification seems to be a popular business model adopted by leading platform providers.
In this position paper, the authors explore possible business models for courses, along with their advantages and disadvantages, by conducting a literature study and applying personal insights gained from attending various MOOC discussion fora. Some business models discussed here are: the Freemium model, sponsorships, initiatives and grants, donations, merchandise, the sale of supplementary material, selective advertising, data-sharing, follow-on events, and revenue from referrals. This paper looks at the sustainability of MOOCS as opposed to the sustainability of MOOC platforms, while observing the tight link between them.

Making Sense of Blended Learning: Treasuring an Older Tradition or Finding a Better Future? | teachonline.ca | aect | Scoop.it
A consensus is emerging that blended learning, a term that embraces various combinations of classroom presence and online study, will become the most common approach to teaching and learning in higher education. Does this consensus simply aim to safeguard the tradition of face-to-face teaching against an invasion of fully online learning - or can blended learning raise higher education to new levels of effectiveness and quality? We attempt an answer to this question.
