Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, January 22, 2013 12:31 AM

The tenth annual survey, a collaborative effort between the Babson Survey Research Group and the College Board, is the leading barometer of online learning in the United States.  Based on responses from over 2,800 academic leaders, the complete survey report, "Changing Course: Ten Years of Tracking Online Education in the United States" can be  downloaded here.

Top Free Classes's curator insight, January 22, 2013 2:39 AM

I love data: clean, meaningful, speaks for itself. The survey showed that the learning outcome of online courses vs. face-to-face is mostly the same.  12% of institutions already have or planning MOOCs, 55% have not decided. There is also data on online learning growth and # of online students, but it's till 2011, so excludes MOOCs that started 2012. Also, while most of academic leaders remain unconvinced that MOOCs represent a sustainable method for offering online courses,  they do believe that they provide an important means for institutions to learn about online pedagogy.

A Simple Guide To 4 Complex Learning Theories

A Simple Guide To 4 Complex Learning Theories | Current Updates | Scoop.it
Do you know the actual theories of learning? A learning theory is an attempt to describe how people learn, helping us understand this inherently complex process.

Tim Hopper's curator insight, January 4, 2013 2:05 PM

Like this quote.  "Learning theory is an attempt to describe how people learn." It is complex because it is emergent and defies being reduced to simple components, but we must keep trying to understand it.  "The journey is the destinaton" as an Eastern philospher once said.

Alan Ovens's comment, January 17, 2013 2:21 AM
Great diagram. We just need to always keep in mind that theories of learning are not theories of teaching. Always "mind the gap" as a voice once said to me as I sat on a train in London.

The 16 Most Compelling Infographics Of 2012

The 16 Most Compelling Infographics Of 2012 | Current Updates | Scoop.it

2012 might be the year which we reached 'peak infographic'.

You can’t have an issue or a piece of data without putting it into a picture so it’s easier for people to understand. While this has mostly resulted in a glut of ugly graphics that don’t actually do anything with data (and you’ll see some of these below), it’s still an incredibly simple way to get information to you fast. And this year, some of our most compelling content has appeared in the format.

These are some of our favorites.

6 Ways Data Journalism is Making Sense of the World

6 Ways Data Journalism is Making Sense of the World | Current Updates | Scoop.it

When I wrote that Radar was investigating data journalism and asked for your favorite examples of good work, we heard back from around the world.

I received emails from Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Canada and Italy that featured data visualization, explored the role of data in government accountability, and shared how open data can revolutionize environmental reporting...

 

It was instructive to learn more about the work of two large media organizations, the Los Angeles Times and Canada’s Global News, which have been building their capacity to practice data journalism. The other international perspectives in my inbox and tweet stream, however, were a reminder that big-city newsrooms that can afford teams of programmers and designers aren’t the only players here.acts of data journalism by small teams or individuals aren’t just plausible, they’re happening — from Italy to Brazil to Africa.

 

That doesn’t mean that the news application teams at NPR, The Guardian, ProPublica or the New York Times aren’t setting the pace for data journalism when it comes to cutting edge work — far from it — but the tools and techniques to make something worthwhile are being democratized.

That’s possible in no small part because of the trend toward open source tools and social coding I’m seeing online, from Open Street Map to more open elections...

An interesting overall look at the state of data journalism on varying scales, as explored through the examination of case studies, resources and applications.

Of particular interest is the role of open data in generating content, and how that may affect the future of data visualization.

Still, the numerous online links provided within the article offer a substantial number of references on a broad range of topics that pertain to data journalism and visualization.

I have always felt that most businesses focus on the eyecandy for their websites, not on ROI. When it comes to ROI, eyecandy has to give way to usability heuristics, information architecture, neuroscience and conversion optimization.

 

This report on conversion optimization reflects the need for focus on ROI and things that matter on your website.
