IPEDS survey misses thousands of online students, but often counts too many @insidehighered

IPEDS survey misses thousands of online students, but often counts too many @insidehighered | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

The federal government’s long-awaited data on the students enrolled in distance education courses nationwide provide a dubious baseline, a new study suggests, as confusing instructions, inflexible design and a lack of coordination have led colleges and universities to under- or overreport thousands of students.

The study, conducted by the WICHE Cooperative for Educational Technologies and the higher education consultantPhil Hill, raises serious questions about the integrity of the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System, or IPEDS, the higher education data collection program operated by the Education Department’s National Center for Education Statistics.

Media and information literacy: policy and strategy guidelines | United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization

Media and information literacy: policy and strategy guidelines | United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

This comprehensive MIL Policy and Strategy Guidelines resource is the first of its kind to treat MIL as a composite concept, unifying information literacy and media literacy as well as considering the right to freedom of expression and access to information through ICTs. These guidelines offer a harmonized approach, which in turn enables all actors to articulate more sustained national MIL policies and strategies, describing both the process and content to be considered.


In the evolving knowledge societies of today, some people are overloaded with information, others are starved for information. Everywhere, people are yearning to freely express themselves, to actively participate in governance processes and cultural exchanges. Media and information literacy (MIL) provides all citizens with critical competencies to survive in the 21st Century.

Can MOOCs lure international students to U.S. colleges and universities? @insidehighered

Can MOOCs lure international students to U.S. colleges and universities? @insidehighered | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

The lesson seems irresistible: technology yields rich possibilities, but also unforeseen complications.


MOOCs have become one of the United States’ major educational exports. In the first year of MOOCs offered by Harvard and MIT through the online education site edX, two-thirds of the enrollees hailed from outside North America.


Now, some online education advocates argue that MOOCs can lure international students to colleges and universities in the U.S. The University of Pennsylvania has developed a MOOC precisely for this purpose: a course titled “Applying to U.S. Universities.” And the State Department has woven online courses into its international education agenda, with the hope that MOOC-driven outreach programs will entice foreign students to study in the U.S.

Google Digital Literacy and Citizenship Curriculum – Know your web – Good to Know – Google | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

At Google we believe in the power of education and the promise of technology to improve the lives of students and educators -- leading the way for a new generation of learning in the classroom and beyond.


But no matter what subject you teach, it is important for your students to know how to think critically and evaluate online sources, understand how to protect themselves from online threats from bullies to scammers, and to think before they share and be good digital citizens.


Google has partnered with child safety experts at iKeepSafe, and also worked with educators themselves to develop lessons that will work in the classroom, are appropriate for kids, and incorporate some of the best advice and tips that Google's security team has to offer.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, September 28, 9:08 AM

As an online educator, I look at gaming technology and immediately see learning opportunities. At a conference in 1996 I listened to Ray Kurszweil describe a future where AI enabled holographic avatars would be personal mentors and master teachers able to meet the individual needs of each and every learner. It was a vision of ultimate differentiation that would allow everyone to meet there maximum potential.


This 3-D gaming announcement feels like another step into that future.

First installment of a two-part interview with Javier Miyares, president of the University of Maryland University College (UMUC). UMUC has forged a reputation for quality in online and distance education, and is one of the industry leaders in this space.
