Abreena Tompkins, instruction specialist at Surry Community College, has developed a brain-based online course design model based on a meta-analysis of more than 300 articles. In this study, she distilled the following elements of brain-based course design:

Low-risk, nonthreatening learning environment Challenging, real-life, authentic assessments Rhythms, patterns, and cycles Appropriate chunking or grouping Learning as orchestration rather than lecture or facilitation Appropriate level of novelty Appropriately timed breaks and learning periods Purposeful assessments Learning that addresses visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners Active processing with mental models The use of universal examples, analogies, and parallel processing

Project Overview


This website, hosted by the Learning Technology Center in the College of Education at The University of Texas at Austin, is designed to be a central point of access to the wide range of research, projects, and other resources related to the use of mobile technologies in learning environments. As it continues to grow and expand, the site will address issues of interest to researchers, practitioners, and educational leaders. The types of resources provided through the Mobile Learning Portal include a large collection of research articles; a listing of journals related to mobile and educational technologies; a repository of information about new and ongoing mobile learning initiatives; and a collection of the institutional, state, and national policies that will impact the future directions of this emerging field.

2 New Skills Needed For Today: Discard and Disregard

2 New Skills Needed For Today: Discard and Disregard | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it

I’ve enjoyed getting to know (via my twitter PLN) and interact with a couple of individuals who are diligent curators of all information related to educational technology:

 

Nour Alkhalidy (@MissNoor28)
Gust Mees (@knolinfos) http://www.scoop.it/u/webwizard

 

Most recently (pic above) I mentioned to Gust that I thought two important new skills were to “disregard and discard”. He asked me to explain further…here goes.

 

INFORMATION OVERLOAD
The increase of social media, the explosion of Web2.0 technologies and their inclusion in search engine returns means you get more than “web sites” and tens of thousands of returns for any search.
A current Google search for “Mobile Learning” (in quotes) brings back 3,710,000 returns.

 

Even refining the search to “mobile learning instructional design” returns 548,000 returns.

 

Gust MEES (@knolinfos): stay tuned, I am preparing a new blog "Learning 2 Learn in 21st Century-The Practice", coming soon... That blog will be part also to my blog "How-To prepare for giving a quality course"

Curate Custom Video Learning Courses with Course Hero

Curate Custom Video Learning Courses with Course Hero | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Course Hero is a platform which allows the creation and delivery of online video courses curated from the best existing published content on that topic.

 

There are already ready-made courses to access or you can submit a topic that you would like to video-curate into a course.

 

"You can learn just about anything from YouTube...if you're willing to dig through millions of videos."

 

 

From Techcrunch: "Luckily, Course Hero has done the work for you, offering coherent classes by hosting collections of the best educational YouTube videos and other content.


The newly launched courses section of the eduTech startup’s site now has classes in entrepreneurship, business plan development, and programming in a variety of languages.

...

By drawing from YouTube and other openly available education, Course Hero plans to set up courses for anything it, or you, can think of.

...

Each course breaks down into roughly 6 chapters of 6 concept YouTube videos, Justin.tv videos, articles, and more. Unlike Udemy‘s one-teacher-per-class approach, Course Hero courses are compiled from content by many teachers.


Rather than put you at the mercy of long-winded professors, Course Hero trims videos and articles down to their most important teachings.

 

Along the way you’ll answer quiz questions, take tests to complete chapters, and face a final exam to finish a course and earn proficiency badges..."
