How online content development and delivery could improve the productivity of post-secondary education

How online content development and delivery could improve the productivity of post-secondary education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

There are specific types of learning outcomes expected from higher education. These outcomes should drive teaching and technology decisions, not the other way round, although there is a symbiosis between outcomes and technology that needs to be considered these outcomes require certain kinds of teaching methods or approaches to learning, and online learning needs to be able to accommodate or support such approaches. This will mean exposing the ‘magic’ of on-campus learning and seeing if this can be defined and recreated in an online environment. I argue that much of this has already been achieved in online learning through good course design, which in itself is a key factor in improving productivity in higher education to get increases in productivity we need to examine which online learning activities can be re-designed to move from variable to fixed costs, while still maintaining or improving on the core learning outcomes expected of higher education. - See more at: http://www.tonybates.ca/2013/09/21/how-online-content-development-and-delivery-could-improve-the-productivity-of-post-secondary-education/#sthash.9GpAMqrq.dpufthere

Here is a novel concept, but what if we let them do something meaningful? Do we think then parents might get on board? I don't mean some. I mean many more. Our school council went from standing room only to virtually no one because bureaucrats and functionaries dictated to them.

Purdue U. Software Prompts Students to Study—and Graduate - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Purdue U. Software Prompts Students to Study—and Graduate - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Just when students thought they were finished with Mom and Dad’s nagging them to do their homework, a piece of software has taken the parents’ place. But this new nagging reminder, called Signals, has given students at Purdue University a boost in graduation rates.


Across the board, since 2007, students enrolled in at least one class with Signals saw a higher graduation rate than did students who were not in classes with the software, according to data from Purdue. Retention rates for those enrolled in classes with the tracking software were also higher than for those in classes without the technology.

The importance of having an early alert system that monitors students academic performance.

It is estimated that people make a sub-conscious judgement about an environment or product within 90 sec of initial viewing. Between 62% and 90% of that assessement is based on colors.
Daniels's curator insight, September 29, 2013 2:18 PM

Use psychology for success in marketing. We all know these two go hand by hand, so read this guide before planning on your brand's design.

Many of us have talked and written about the benefits of part-time learning, either online and at a distance or in the classroom. Now we have something to reference that can give our own views credibility, or something to argue against (whichever your standpoint).

“This report has been developed as part of Flexible pedagogies research project. Part-time learners and learning is one of five main focus strands embedded within the theme of flexible learning.”

 Here are a list of 8 Avatar tools and short description of its outcome. These tools can be used for a variety of educational purposes with our students in the classroom. Also there is a mention of other free comic tools which are used to create cartoons and comic strips for educational uses.

What is an avatar?
An avatar is a figure or character that you can create and customize the way you want. You can use this character to interact with other friends online. Users have the full control of what they want to feature for example the kind of background, accessories, clothes...etc.
