Data show increasing pace of college enrollment declines | Inside Higher Ed

Data show increasing pace of college enrollment declines | Inside Higher Ed | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

The decline in college enrollments appears to be accelerating, with 2.3 percent fewer students enrolled on campuses this spring than there were in spring 2012, according to data published Thursday by the National Student Clearinghouse.

The 2.3 percent dip is steeper than the 1.8 percent decline that the clearinghouse reported in December when it compared fall 2012 numbers to those from fall 2011. These reports represent the clearinghouse's first such twice-yearly analyses of fall and spring enrollments, which the Virginia-based organization says will be annual going forward. The clearinghouse collects data from institutions that represent about 95 percent of all enrollments at colleges that grant degrees and are eligible to award federal financial aid.

Yale Joins the MOOC Club; Coursera Looks to Translate Existing Courses - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Yale Joins the MOOC Club; Coursera Looks to Translate Existing Courses - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

For all the star power harnessed by massive open online course providers, Yale University has been a notable absence. While many of its elite peers scrambled to get out ahead of the MOOC wave, Yale bided its time.

That’s about to change. Yale announced on Wednesday that it will soon offer massive courses through Coursera, the Silicon Valley-based company.

Yale plans to offer four courses beginning in January—focusing on Constitutional law, financial markets, morality, and Roman architecture.

ProfeRed's curator insight, May 15, 2013 8:47 AM

"Open Educational Resources (OER) – that is, teaching, learning and research materials that their owners make free to others to use, revise and share – offer a powerful means of expanding the reach and effectiveness of worldwide education. Those resources can be full courses, course materials, modules, textbooks, streaming videos, software, and other materials and techniques used to promote and support universal access to knowledge.

This book, initiated by the UNESCO/COL Chair in OER, is one in a series of publications by the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) examining OER. It describes the movement in detail, providing readers with insight into OER’s significant benefits, its theory and practice, and its achievements and challenges. The 16 chapters, written by some of the leading international experts on the subject, are organised into four parts by theme:

OER in Academia – describes how OER are widening the international community of scholars, following MIT’s lead in sharing its resources and looking to the model set by the OpenCourseWare ConsortiumOER in Practice – presents case studies and descriptions of OER initiatives underway on three continentsDiffusion of OER – discusses various approaches to releasing and “opening” content, from building communities of users that support lifelong learning to harnessing new mobile technologies that enhance OER access on the InternetProducing, Sharing and Using OER – examines the pedagogical, organisational, personal and technical issues that producing organisations and institutions need to address in designing, sharing and using OER"....

If the story is simple and authentic it will be received, remembered and acted upon. Get the inside right before you worry about the medium outside.  Remember, "the shortest distance between two people is a story" - the right one

Helping Students Communicate Effectively - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Helping students identify communications failures and choose an appropriate medium for expressing their ideas may well turn out to be the easier parts of the task, though. The bigger challenge will be to help them develop the attitude of openness that can both aid effective communication and reduce the likelihood of conflict, even if disagreement remains.
