Lumina's new strategies for big completion goal | Inside Higher Ed

Lumina's new strategies for big completion goal | Inside Higher Ed | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

For example, competency-based education has the potential to help more students get to graduation, they said, but still faces barriers. And emerging forms of credentialing, like certificates issued by massive open online course (MOOC) providers, pose plenty of questions for employers, federal regulators and accrediting agencies.

Lumina’s role will be to help spread the word that change has arrived to higher education, said Merisotis, and to convene leaders across sectors to figure out how to build a new system that works for students while protecting academic quality.

About MOOC Completion Rates: The Importance of Student Investment

About MOOC Completion Rates: The Importance of Student Investment | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
I just finished teaching a Massive Online Open Class (MOOC) titled “Computational Investing, Part I” via coursera.org. 53,000 people “enrolled,” which is to say they clicked...

...

First of all, we need to recognize that completion rates for MOOCs really have a different meaning than those for regular university courses.  This is mainly because of the differing level of investment the students make from the start. In other words “skin in the game” matters.

But MOOC completion rates aren’t really low in the context of Internet engagement. A click through rate of 5% for a google ad is considered a strong success. Convincing 5% to engage intellectually for 8 weeks is, I think, a big deal.

If we continue to keep the barrier to entry low, we’ll enable students to taste many many courses, and that may be a good thing for education.

On the other hand if we want to boost completion rates, and perhaps boost engagement in MOOCs we should consider forcing the students to invest.  A small enrollment fee might make a big difference. I’d be very interested to see how this would affect engagement, learning and completion rates.

Coursera Announces Details for Selling Certificates and Verifying Identities - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

How is a major provider of free online courses going to tell whether you are who you say you are? By how you type.


The company, Coursera, plans to announce today the start of a pilot project to check the identities of its students and offer “verified certificates” of completion, for a fee. A key part of that validation process will involve what Coursera officials call “keystroke biometrics”—analyzing each user’s pattern and rhythm of typing to serve as a kind of fingerprint.

Some presentations need music to be played along with the animation. For example, presentations that are going to be converted to a video or self playing demo presentations. Learning to synchronize music with animation will take a long time by trial and error. This tutorial shows a simple method using PowerPoint’s custom animation feature.

For as long as eLearning has been around, it has been haunted by the voices of those who aim to criticize its authenticity, viability, and quality. But is it true? Do students of traditional institutions boast more success than those who’ve chosen distance learning?

It’s time for some of these myths to die.
