Why #NetNeutrality Matters to Higher Ed – ProfHacker - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

his is a joint post by Adeline Koh and Siobhan Senier (@ssenier), Associate Professor of English at the University of New Hampshire.  Siobhan’s current research and teaching interests include Native American Studies, Digital Humanities, Sustainability Studies, and Disability Studies.  Find out more about her research on her website, Writing of Indigenous New England. 

 

If you work in the digital humanities–or for that matter, in higher education–net neutrality is an issue that calls for a concerted response from all of us now. if you’re still getting caught up, check out Adeline’s post on this from last week, Alexis Madrigal’s guide to the history of Net Neutrality, and Colorlines on why people of color need to care about this.

AUDIO | Supporting Low-Income Students: Strategies for Retention and Success | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

The following is the conclusion of a two-part interview with Ben Castleman, assistant professor of education and public policy at the University of Virginia. Castleman has done a great deal of research on the summer melt phenomenon, and recently published research exploring a few strategies higher education institutions could put in place to retain their low-income and non-traditional students. In the first part, Castleman outlined a number of the challenges facing low-income, non-traditional students. In this conclusion, he discusses the most effective strategies to help students overcome these barriers.

Tecnologías del Conocimiento Latinoamérica: [Editorial TDC]: 3 tips para aplicar en una estrategia de GAMIFICACIÓN

Tecnologías del Conocimiento Latinoamérica: [Editorial TDC]: 3 tips para aplicar en una estrategia de GAMIFICACIÓN | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
“Gamification/Gamificación” no es hacer videojuegos; es utilizar la lógica de los juegos en espacios de no juego, es utilizar el potencial de los juegos, sus reglas, su lógica para potenciar conductas o desarrollar cultura corporativa en base a cambios en las acciones y disposiciones de los jugadores.

En este momento, el concepto comienza a surgir como un tema de moda que, como toda moda, está lleno de cosas, palabras y tecnologías. Por eso orientarse en qué es lo fundamental no es fácil. Lo que trataremos en este breve artículo es dar guías para aprovechar su potencial centrándonos en lo esencial de la gamificación.
Gamificación, se diferencia de otras estrategias de engagement empresarial, en cómo esta actúa en niveles muy básicos de las motivaciones y deseos de las personas: reputación, ganar una competencia, coleccionar, etcétera. Esto le da un potencial tan grande que, para ser aprovechado, tiene que basarse en algo muy simple: el espíritu del juego.

Why do so many Moodle courses suck?

Why do so many Moodle courses suck? | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Moodle is a magnificent free product and has the potential to enable schools and teachers to build wonderfully unique interactive online learning courses in which learner interaction can be tracked, measured and responded to. Despite this the vast majority of Moodle courses I see are a long list of Word and PDF documents with at best a few forums that enable a minimum of human social interaction.

Meaningful Interaction in Online Courses | Higher Ed Beta @insidehighered

Meaningful Interaction in Online Courses | Higher Ed Beta @insidehighered | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Critics of online education, especially in the humanities, often stress the importance of face-to-face interaction. It is face-to-face interaction, the reasoning goes, that makes traditional in-person courses superior to their online counterparts. Without rejecting the premise, it nevertheless seems counterproductive to think of in-person courses and online courses in strictly competitive terms. If online courses are here to stay and we in the humanities are expected to teach them, these vigorous defenses of the in-person course will not make us better online instructors. In other words if we want to make online courses better, then it seems crucial to think about how we can promote “interaction” when “face-to-face” is not an option.


The scholarship on distance learning affirms the importance of engaged and approachable instructors in online education. Joseph McClary summarizes the research and notes that interaction with instructors has been linked to increased student learning and satisfaction. Most importantly, McClary notes that high-quality online education requires instructors to engage with students on an individual level rather than merely provide oversight as students proceed through the course.
