Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | Classroom in the future | Scoop.it

"Scoop.it collates work from online publications using an online magazine format, and this visual impact alone makes it very effective. The additional appeal of broadcasting from a hub allows me to tap into and share with my ed tech networks, which is why I find myself using it more often during time constraints."

"We spent a lot of time this past fall looking at how MOOCs are starting to change the landscape of education.

Practical Steps: How to Help Students Succeed in eLearning | Classroom in the future | Scoop.it

"Everybody knows that corporate eLearning is particularly susceptible to high dropout rates. However, attempting to tie your e-Learners to their desks and attach a computer to their brain will not improve your course success rates. In reality, a student’s willingness or desire to learn is what actually makes the eLearning experience work. As a starting point, provide motivation at all times (before, during and after they take the course) to ensure that employees have effective and strong learning experiences."
