A National Survey of Faculty Development Evaluation Outcome Measures and Procedures | Online Learning Consortium, Inc

A National Survey of Faculty Development Evaluation Outcome Measures and Procedures | Online Learning Consortium, Inc | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

This article presents the results of a national study of 39 higher education institutions that collected information about their evaluation procedures and outcome measures for faculty development for online teaching conducted during 2011-2012. The survey results found that over 90% of institutions used measures of the faculty person’s assessment of satisfaction and usefulness of the training itself, rather than student outcomes or changes in teaching methodology. Online evaluations were utilized by 80% of institutions and focus groups were used by 21% of institutions.

The Role of Enrollment Choice in Online Education: Course Selection | Online Learning Consortium, Inc

The Role of Enrollment Choice in Online Education: Course Selection | Online Learning Consortium, Inc | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

There is well-documented evidence that online retention rates are lower than face-to-face retention rates. However, most past research on online retention focuses on student characteristics, with little knowledge existing on the impact of course type. This study uses a matched sample of 2,330 students at a large urban community college to analyze two key course-level factors which may be impacting online retention: the student’s reason for taking the course (as an elective or a requirement) and course difficulty level. The results of this study indicate that the online modality increases dropout risk in courses that are taken as an elective or distributional requirement, particularly for lower-level courses. The findings suggest that in the online environment, the student’s reason for course enrollment may be considered a risk indicator and that focused learner support targeted at particular course types may be needed to increase online persistence and retention.

In Yearly LMS Count Canvas Gains, Blackboard Learn Loses -- Campus Technology | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Even though support for the Angel learning management system will not officially end this month, plenty of institutions are apparently seeing the writing on the wall and jumping ship anyway. According to data compiled by Edutechnica.com, Angel has lost 39 institutional customers in the United States. During that same period Blackboard also lost 31 Blackboard Learn LMS customers. The only clear winner during the year has been Instructure, which gained 66 new institutional users, nearly making up the loss for the other two learning management systems (LMS).

Teaching Presence in Online Education: From the Instructor’s Point-of-View | Online Learning Consortium, Inc

Teaching Presence in Online Education: From the Instructor’s Point-of-View | Online Learning Consortium, Inc | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Most often the topic of creating presence in online education is viewed from the student perspective (Oztok & Brett, 2011). The purpose of this mixed methods research was to look at the creation of teaching presence from the vantage point of a lone ranger instructor (Anderson, 2004). Based on data collected from student grades, student-instructor communication, and course evaluations, the researcher/instructor set out to determine if creating a greater sense of teaching presence was a worthwhile investment of her time and energy. Over the course of three semesters, the researcher/instructor incorporated various techniques to create a greater sense of teaching presence in one of two simultaneously occurring graduate assessment courses. There was minimal evidence from this study that demonstrated that creating a greater sense of teaching presence in the online classroom was an effective use of the instructor’s time and efforts. It was also determined that instructors play a key role in the creation and facilitation of the learning process, but it is likely more important for the instructor to simply be available for students through a well-structured course as opposed to creating a presence of oneself in the online classroom.

Why do Institutions Offer MOOCs? | Online Learning Consortium, Inc

Why do Institutions Offer MOOCs? | Online Learning Consortium, Inc | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

By reviewing the literature and interviewing 83 individuals knowledgeable about massive open online courses (MOOCs), we investigate the goals of institutions of higher education that are currently developing and delivering such courses. We identify six major goals for MOOC initiatives: extending reach and access, building and maintaining brand, improving economics by reducing costs or increasing revenues, improving educational outcomes, innovation in teaching and learning, and conducting research on teaching and learning. Comparing these goals with the data being collected about MOOCs, their participants, and educational outcomes, as well as the resource requirements and cost drivers of the development and delivery process, we assess whether these goals are being met, or are likely to be in the future. While quantification of success in achieving these goals is for the most part lacking, we conclude that institutions are experiencing at least partial success in achieving each of these goals except for improving economics. We identify obstacles to fuller achievement of the goals and some potential solutions.

The Complexities of Collaboration

The Complexities of Collaboration | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Through my experiences and after questioning other educators, I have determined that your ability to collaborate effectively is influenced by many factors-
  • Previous experience
  • Growth mindset
  • School context
  • Time
  • Personality
  • Insecurity
  • Perceived value of collaboration
  • Understanding of collaboration-what it is and isn’t.
  • Appreciation of others
  • Learning philosophy
  • Balanced Contribution
  • Belief in a common goal
  • Autonomy or Interdependence- Seeing yourself as ‘we’ not just ‘me'
