David Brooks / The campus tsunami: Online education is the wave of the future, even at elite universities | Attractitude-Elearning | Scoop.it

Online learning could extend the influence of U.S. universities around the world. India alone hopes to build tens of thousands of colleges over the next decade. Curricula from U.S. schools could permeate those institutions.

 

Research into online learning suggests that it is roughly as effective as classroom learning. It's easier to tailor a learning experience to an individual student's pace and preferences. Online learning seems especially useful in language and remedial education.

Tablets And Education: Why Innovative Hardware Is Not Enough - Forbes | Attractitude-Elearning | Scoop.it

Tech pundits like to frame any sort of mobile or digital competition as a war between devices and brands. Android vs. iPhone. iPad vs. Kindle Fire. HP vs. Dell. In many cases, the competition for market share is cutthroat and the hyperbole applies. But this argument loses relevance when it’s applied to students’ use of technology. In education, the success of any product depends on how well the device maker or platform provider can overcome the rules inherent to our education system.

The goal of this project is to create and evaluate a badging system for learning in order to increase college student academic engagement and improve class attendance and academic performance. We hypothesize that we can improve college student academic outcomes by combining Location Based Services (LBS) with a badging system employing game dynamics and integrating it in an educationally-relevant way in a large-lecture course at The University of Florida.

Nine steps to quality online learning: introduction - Tony Bates | Attractitude-Elearning | Scoop.it

I developed these nine steps in response to requests about how to ensure quality when starting an online course or program. Now there are lots of excellent e-learning quality assurance standards, organizations and research available online, and I’m not going to duplicate these. Instead, I’m going to suggest a series of practical steps towards implementing such standards.

How Technology Can Improve Online Learning - Online Learning | Attractitude-Elearning | Scoop.it

By Robert W. Mendenhall
As president of a nonprofit, online university I am often asked about the quality of online learning. The answer is that the quality of education is largely independent of the mode of delivery. Other variables are far more important.

 

There is high-quality online learning, and there is high-quality classroom learning, just as there is low-quality learning in both settings.
