Competency-Based Education: Partnerships Are a Must

Competency-Based Education: Partnerships Are a Must | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Many colleges and universities are moving toward competency-based education, and developing opportunities for students to earn credit based on demonstrated mastery of skills and knowledge areas. This moves far beyond the "credit by exam" model and even portfolio evaluation, to a deeper level of skills and broader subject matter areas.

Zotero Gets an Upgrade to Version 4.0 - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

 Zotero now lets you select a few tags that can mark items with a special color. This might seem minor, but it’s actually a big improvement to usability. One of the things that Zotero has lacked is a way to clearly mark items as “to read” or “read.” While it’s always been possible to use tags for that purpose, the colors really make the items stand out.

Documents shed light on details of Georgia Tech-Udacity deal | Inside Higher Ed

Documents shed light on details of Georgia Tech-Udacity deal | Inside Higher Ed | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
The Georgia Institute of Technology’s plan to offer a low-cost online master’s degree to 10,000 students at once creates what may be a first-of-its-kind template for the evolving role of public universities and corporations. When it agreed to work with Udacity to offer the online master's degree in computer science, Georgia Tech expected to make millions of dollars in coming years, negotiated student-staff interaction down to the minute, promised to pay professors who create new online courses $30,000 or more, and created two new categories of educators -- corporate “course assistants” tasked with handling student issues and a corps of teaching assistants hired by Georgia Tech who will be professionals rather than graduate students. New details about the internal decision making and fine print of Georgia Tech's revolutionary effort are based on interviews and documents, including some that the university provided to Inside Higher Ed following an open records request.
