Organizing your personal research library and compiling bibliographies

Organizing your personal research library and compiling bibliographies | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

A key aspect of scholarship is how you create a personal research library, find and access your sources when needed, and cite them accurately and comprehensively. Patrick Dunleavy explains how the (relatively new) software Mendeley has transformed his previous time-consuming practice in just a few days, and solved numerous other problems of accessing literature and sources wherever he is. Mendeley can offer all academics and PhDs massive productivity gains.

Udacity Cancels Free Online Math Course, Citing Low Quality - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Udacity Cancels Free Online Math Course, Citing Low Quality - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Udacity, a start-up company offering free online courses, last week canceled a course, “Logic and Discrete Mathematics,” that was due to begin this summer, saying the lectures and materials it had prepared on the topic did not live up to its quality standards.


“We recorded the entire class and edited most of it, but in our internal tests it didn’t meet our quality bar,” said Sebastian Thrun, founder of Udacity, in an e-mail interview on Sunday. “We have an enormous respect for our students’ time and don’t want to release anything that wouldn’t meet our bar.”

Hispanic Student Enrollments Reach New Highs in 2011

Hispanic Student Enrollments Reach New Highs in 2011 | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

For the first time, the number of 18- to 24-year-old Hispanics enrolled in college exceeded 2 million and reached a record 16.5% share of all college enrollments. 2 Hispanics are the largest minority group on the nation’s college campuses, a milestone first achieved last year (Fry, 2011). But as their growth among all college-age students continues to outpace other groups, Hispanics are now, for the first time, the largest minority group among the nation’s four-year college and university students. And for the first time, Hispanics made up one-quarter (25.2%) of 18- to 24-year-old students enrolled in two-year colleges.

Remediation may serve useful purposes, study finds | Inside Higher Ed

Remediation may serve useful purposes, study finds | Inside Higher Ed | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Remedial courses fail to prepare students for college-level work, but the remedial track may serve other purposes, according to a study newly released by the National Bureau of Economic Research.
The research found that being placed into remediation is not as discouraging for students as conventional wisdom holds. And while remedial courses’ primary effect is as a sorting mechanism for students of differing academic abilities -- rather than as preparation or discouragement -- that purpose shouldn’t be overlooked, according to the researchers.

Over 1,500 miles separated the two ends of the tutoring session. The tutor lectured in Boston in the early morning, and the student watched and listened in New Orleans in the early evening. In the comfort of her room, the 12-year old was not only able to pause, rewind and review previous lessons, but she actually preferred the casual nature of interacting without anyone looking over her shoulder. The tutor was Salman (Sal) Khan; the student was his young cousin, Nadia. Sal’s digital doodles helped Nadia understand the conversion from gallons to liters. Their sessions have led to tutoring videos on a wide range of topics, representing the latest trend in video-based learning. How did we get here?

ACT scores are flat | Inside Higher Ed

ACT scores are flat | Inside Higher Ed | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Scores on the ACT were flat this year -- with a 21.1 composite average, identical to last year's. Within the four parts of the ACT, the only one to change from 2011 to 2012 was English, which dropped to 20.5 from 20.6
The level scores this year reflect a trend of the last five years. Since 2008, the only year that the composite score has not been 21.1 was 2010, when the composite was 21.0. ACT officials noted, however, that during the last five years, the number of high school students taking the ACT increased by 17 percent, and that these students reflected a more diverse population. Generally, when the testing pool expands, educators expect to see slight declines in scores, so the stability in scores can be seen as a gain of sorts.

Study examines contradictions that define today's young people | Inside Higher Ed

Study examines contradictions that define today's young people | Inside Higher Ed | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Colleges and employers have their work cut out for them in helping today's young people navigate the fast-changing economic and technological environment in which they are coming of age, given their often-conflicting attitudes and traits, a new book argues.


The book, Generation on a Tightrope: A Portrait of Today’s College Student (Jossey Bass), uses surveys of students and college officials, interviews from campus visits, and other data to characterize the current crop of college-age Americans as confounded by a series of contradictions -- and, in turn, often confounding to parents, colleges and employers trying to understand them. Coming of age in the deepest recession in 70 years, yet eager for the economic opportunities their parents enjoyed. In a hurry to be grownups, but more dependent on the adults around them than any modern generation. Global citizens in theory, but ignorant of other cultures. Always in touch, but hampered in face-to-face communication. And perhaps most importantly, digital natives, but maneuvering in a still-largely-analog world.
