Webinars Curation: Find, Rate and Organize The Best Online Events and Lessons with Hublished

Webinars Curation: Find, Rate and Organize The Best Online Events and Lessons with Hublished | Collective Intelligence & Distance Learning | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Hublished has announced a new web service, launching privately this fall, that allows "publishers" to host, upload and deliver live webinars, and for "peers" to find, curate, organize and save the most interesting ones into their own collections / hubs.

For the first time ever, educated consumers and professionals can discover and share live, recent, and upcoming content from brands and experts.

 

"Hublished solves two problems, for the two different types of users that will be on the site.

 

For experts and brands, whom we call Publishers, Hublished is a central location they can promote upcoming webinars and upload recent ones, in order to reach new consumers and generate leads. For professionals and industry enthusiasts, whom we call Peers, Hublished provides a discovery and curation platform that helps them separate the hacks from the experts when it comes to cutting-edge information and continuing education."

Collaborative Learning - Skillshare Launches Hybrid Classes, Letting Anyone Join Online Or Offline

Collaborative Learning - Skillshare Launches Hybrid Classes, Letting Anyone Join Online Or Offline | Collective Intelligence & Distance Learning | Scoop.it
When peer-to-peer learning startup Skillshare launched early last year, it very quickly became a marketplace for knowledge, allowing anyone to create classes based on his or her individual expertise.

 

When peer-to-peer learning startup Skillshare launched early last year, it very quickly became a marketplace for knowledge, allowing anyone to create classes based on his or her individual expertise. The idea was to create a platform through which people could come together and learn new skills. But it was limited in that users could only participate in classes that took place in their local area.

 

Now Skillshare is allowing teachers to create classes through which that will be available globally. With the launch of its new hybrid classes, students will be able to take part in collaborative learning through local classes as well as online. While its existing model has proven incredibly successful, with more than 5,000 teachers signed up on the platform, founder and CEO Michael Karnjanaprakorn believes that the hybrid model of learning will make the platform available to a much wider range of students. Since classes are no longer tied to a specific city or geography, practically anyone will be able to participate in a hybrid class.

 

Teachers will also have more flexibility to have more project-oriented classes, rather than lecture-oriented classes that it currently offers. It’s a step toward what Skillshare like to call “collaborative learning.” That is, lessons aren’t dictated to students from a teacher, with students expected to memorize facts verbatim or to execute on projects alone. Instead, Skillshare is seeking to make learning more of a many-to-many experience, with students collaborating on projects, and thus learning from each other as much as they learn from the teacher.

 

The launch of hybrid classes follows the recent introduction of Skillshare’s new “Classroom” tools, which make it easier for students and teachers alike to share notes with one another and to collaborate on various projects. In many ways, the Classroom is at the center of the new hybrid classes, as it was an online extension of classes that were previously being taught offline. And it also helped move forward Skillshare’s collaborative learning agenda, by creating a place where anyone could exchange notes and thoughts.

LearnSprout Wants To Help Developers Unlock Educational Data

LearnSprout Wants To Help Developers Unlock Educational Data | Collective Intelligence & Distance Learning | Scoop.it
APIs are marching into education, and it's about time. Education is rife with legacy infrastructure, with one of the primary offenders being Student Information Systems (SIS).

 

APIs are marching into education, and it’s about time. Education is rife with legacy infrastructure, with one of the primary offenders being Student Information Systems (SIS). Schools use these systems to store huge amounts of sensitive student information (class lists, attendance, grades and allergies, etc.), but they differ widely from school to school, which, among other things, forces developers to manually integrate with each unique system, making it difficult for their cool educational software or apps to achieve any kind of scale.

 

LearnSprout, a recent graduate of the education-focused startup accelerator Imagine K12 wants to help both schools and developers unleash those opaque educational data silos with the help of a few clean, standardizing APIs. While the recently-launched startup is not alone — Y Combinator-backed Clever launched a similar platform last month — LearnSprout now has the benefit of some notable investors to help fuel its fires.
