Special edition on research on MOOCs in the journal ‘Distance Education’

Special edition on research on MOOCs in the journal ‘Distance Education’ | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Tony Bates:

 

"The August 2014 edition of the Australian-based journal, Distance Education (Vol.35, No. 2.), is devoted to new research on MOOCs. There is a guest editor, Kemi Jona, from Northwestern University, Illinois, as well as the regular editor, Som Naidu.
The six articles in this edition are fascinating, both in terms of their content, but even more so in their diversity. There are also three commentaries, by Jon Baggaley, Gerhard Fischer and myself."

Assessing a Historically Hispanic Serving Institution Internationalization Process

Assessing a Historically Hispanic Serving Institution Internationalization Process | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

This article presents a qualitative study conducted at a Historically Hispanic Serving Institution (HHSI) to further the understanding of its internationalization decision-making process. The study uses the Internationalization Cube model to review the institution’s internal processes and policies toward internationalization and assess how its international activities align with its internationalization efforts. The Internationalization Cube, an eight-cell model, permits the positioning of Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs) based on the analysis of its three dimensions and respective subcategories: policy, support, and implementation. The International Dimension Index (IDI) and the Item Relevancy Index (IRI) were also used to determine the level of alignment between the HHSI position on the Internationalization Cube and its international activities. The study finds that the HHSI is on Position 6 on the Internationalization Cube (priority policy, one-sided support, and systematic/structure implementation), and exhibits all the international activities considered indicators of internationalization but attention is needed to foreign language, international students, study abroad, faculty movement and involvement in international projects. The study concludes that an association exists between the institution’s position on the Internationalization Cube and its international activities, and adjustments in the institution’s policy, support, and implementation dimensions will be required to advance its position on the Internationalization Cube making its internationalization process more sustainable. This study makes a contribution to addressing the need to assess an IHE by presenting a holistic organizational framework instead of a fragmented international activities organizational analysis.

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.

For Bill on Disabled Access to Online Teaching Materials, the Devil’s in the Details – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education

For Bill on Disabled Access to Online Teaching Materials, the Devil’s in the Details – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

As smart classrooms become the norm on more campuses and online courses proliferate, some observers worry that the digital revolution will leave students with disabilities behind. But a bill under consideration in the U.S. Congress, the Technology, Equality, and Accessibility in College and Higher Education Act (HR 3505), would deal with that concern by creating accessibility guidelines for electronic materials used or assigned by college professors and administrators.


While the bill, known as the Teach Act, has bipartisan support in Congress, several higher-education organizations have raised concerns about what they consider the legislation’s broad language, inflexibility, and misplaced oversight. For example, the American Council on Education objects to the bill in part because it grants authority to create guidelines to the Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board, which the council says lacks higher-education expertise.

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.
