Gates foundation solicits remedial MOOCs | Inside Higher Ed | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Early returns show that massive open online courses (MOOCs) work best for motivated and academically prepared students. But could high-quality MOOCs benefit a broader range of learners, like those who get tripped up by remedial classes?

We as instructional designers can’t help students simply by packaging information. There is an argument to be made that such packages are very often designed to undermine and defeat learning rather than promote it.

SUNY planning systemwide fight against student loan defaults | Inside Higher Ed | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

The State University of New York System announced this week it will begin a systemwide effort to prevent student borrowers from defaulting on their loans. The plan is the most comprehensive so far by a state higher education system to deal with the growing concern surrounding student borrowing.

Med schools are a target for universities seeking prestige and new revenues | Inside Higher Ed

Med schools are a target for universities seeking prestige and new revenues | Inside Higher Ed | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

In January, the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia voted to merge four pairs of state universities, an unprecedented move in the state, with the general idea of cutting state expenses.
That reasoning made sense for three of the pairs, in which the institutions were of comparable size and mission, with significant overlap in programs. But the fourth merger, between Augusta State University and Georgia Health Sciences University, stood out. Augusta State is a residential undergraduate campus. Georgia Health Sciences University focuses on graduate-level health education. The universities have different administrative structures and only one overlapping academic program, so the potential for savings was minimal.

Anthologize Your Wordpress Course Site to Create a Printable Syllabus - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Anthologize Your Wordpress Course Site to Create a Printable Syllabus - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

We love WordPress at ProfHacker, and many of us use WordPress to manage course websites. I’ve written about using ScholarPress Courseware to manage classes (and avoid LMSes like Blackboard). In my classes, the course website—built in WordPress—is the syllabus, and I ask students to refer there for course policies, the schedule, and assignments. However, I always have a few students who want an easily printable syllabus. When a syallbus was built in and for WordPress, however, that can be a challenge. At the very least cutting and pasting into a word processor would require significant reformatting of the website’s text; alternatively, I could remove the HTML tags I used when writing the syllabus by hand.
