Google and edX Create a MOOC Site for the Rest of Us - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Google and edX Create a MOOC Site for the Rest of Us - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

"Until now, massive open online courses have mostly reinforced existing hierarchies in higher education. MOOC providers have recruited elite institutions and offered them and their professors the opportunity to broadcast their courses to the world.

 

But now edX, a nonprofit provider founded by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is joining forces with Google to create a spinoff Web site where ordinary folks—and professors at colleges that have not been invited to join high-profile MOOC consortiums—can not only sign up for a MOOC but also build one themselves."

John Bostock's insight:

These are big players, so this looks like a significant development - especially for less mainstream subjects such as aquaculture....

Giving Students Feedback With Kaizena (Voice Comments) Tutorial

Published on Sep 10, 2013

Use your voice to give students feedback about their papers in Google Docs. I've only played with this a little bit so far, but I'm really excited to be able to use Kaizena to give my students feedback this year. Being able to add links to resources and reuse those links for other students is so helpful. If you have questions I'm on twitter @JenRoberts1 and the guys who make kaizena are @kaizenaFB if you have feedback for them, or email founders@kaizena.com

John Bostock's insight:

If you have the option of using Google Docs with students, this looks a very useful tool as it links audio comments with specific highlighting and links to other resources.

I think this has the potential to be of great use with English Language Learners, especially since they tend to understand the spoken word better than the written.

Maryalice Leister's comment, September 20, 2013 6:29 PM
Very true, David. One more tool to meet the needs of individual learners.

Gingko App - For collaborative writing

Gingko App - For collaborative writing | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

Since Gingko is tree-based, one person can work on the overall organization, while a second is writing the main points of a particular section, and a third is taking those points and fleshing them out in a subsection.

Very good app for long documents. You could work in a 3 tree level, allowing you to conect between levels, add links, pics, etc... quite user-friendly.

Need to try out this tool, looks exciting!

Now that I've discovered the wonderful Gingko App, my writing (and pre-writing) is not going to be the same again.
