Does it really take longer to create an online course?

Does it really take longer to create an online course? | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Researcher looks to empirical evidence to determine why teaching online courses seems to take more time than face-to-face courses.

 

Does the development, and teaching, of online courses really take longer than for face-to-face courses? One researcher recently set out to discover if these existing beliefs can be supported empirically, rather than anecdotally.

 

And though Lee A. Freeman, associate professor of MIS and Information Technology at the College of Business at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, did find these beliefs to have empirical support, the reasons why developing and teaching online courses take longer may be different than those propagated by “trade press and qualitative perceptions.”

For example, one key finding of Freeman’s study, “Instructor Time Requirements to Develop and Teach Online Courses” found that the widespread belief that a technology learning curve leads to increased time spent for developing online courses is incorrect. Often, it’s the pedagogical learning curve that hinders progress for professors teaching online courses.

 

Another finding indicates that after initial online course creation and delivery, professors see a notable decline in time needed for teaching, with time spent per course equaling that of a face-to-face course.

“Instructors, department chairs, deans, and program administrators have long believed that teaching online is more time-consuming than teaching face-to-face,” explained Freeman. “Many research studies and practitioner articles indicate instructor time commitment as a major inhibitor to developing and teaching online courses. However, while they identify the issue and provide possible solutions, they do not empirically measure actual time commitments or instructor perceptions when comparing online to face-to-face delivery and when comparing multiple iterations of delivery.”

The Digital Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education

The Digital Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Meet this year's tech innovators — eight men and women who are helping to drive change through education technology (or, in one case, questioning that technology). This is the third time in recent years that The Chronicle has showcased creative efforts to solve problems — to enliven the classroom, cut instructional costs, recruit more women into computer science, keep students on track to graduate, conduct cutting-edge research, and more. As part of the selection process, we asked readers and higher-education leaders for suggestions. We were just as interested in a scrappy project on a shoestring budget as we were in a big-ticket outlay. We also considered leaders in various sectors, so you'll meet a professor of the Harlem Renaissance, tech-company chief executives, a college president who paints on the side, and a registrar who's looking out for struggling students. The final selections were made by a group of Chronicle editors and reporters.

Last week the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee unanimously approved the Every Child Achieves Act, a bill that would comprehensively overhaul the No Child Left Behind Act, which has been in place since 2002.  The original version of the bill considered by the Committee would have completely eliminated the Math and Science Partnerships Program at the Department of Education, consolidating this widely supported program into a larger state block grant proposal.

Understand when to reach for the tablet (or the laptop) - Daily Genius

Understand when to reach for the tablet (or the laptop) - Daily Genius | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Occasionally you come across a kind of theological divide in EdTech around whether to focus on learning through the  iPad or via the laptop. Which is like wondering whether to have fish or vegetables for your dinner. Both are fine, but they don’t fill the same need.


The problem with seeing the laptop/iPad issue as an either or is that they can complement each other, not replace them. Effectively, you should see one as an instrument of consumption and one as an instrument of creation.


So, budget allowing (and recognizing that is not a trivial issue), schools should look at how the iPad can encourage the consumption of content, especially that which is ‘native’ to the hardware – content which encourages an almost physical interaction – using the fingers to zoom in on detail or to rotate or swipe. It’s that tactile element which is especially important for younger pupils.
