Khan Academy founder likes what he sees in community colleges | 3C Media Solutions | Scoop.it
Blaine Morrow's insight:

We can start to reach many more people than we thought possible,” Khan said. “It’s no longer about virtual versus physical education. It’s about leveraging physical education so virtual education can become more human.” As a result, he said, “we can start to give the poor something they didn’t have before—the same education we’re giving to Bill Gates’ kids.”

Blaine Morrow's insight:

"It’s as simple as this: sign in with a Google account (VideoNotes uses Google Drive for storage) and then paste in the URL for a YouTube or Coursera video. Then as it plays you can start making notes on the right-hand side of the screen. The clever bit is that as you click on previous notes you’ve made, the video will jump to that point, making this a really useful tool for navigating documentaries, study guides and other long, involved videos."

As this new way of learning has played out over time, my students have found that they no longer need me to locate or create videos for them. They can find their own resources and direct their own learning.

Blaine Morrow's insight:

"It’s much harder to ‘game’ the system on YouTube. Obviously the title and description should include relevant keywords, but beyond that a video’s ranking largely depends on its quality. The best way to promote content on YouTube is to create videos that people actually want to watch and share. Really, this should be the philosophy behind the creation of all content, but it’s especially important on YouTube."

Does coming to lectures really matter?

Does coming to lectures really matter? | 3C Media Solutions | Scoop.it
At this stage of semester, it is perhaps timely to throw in this paper I wrote a while ago with a couple of colleagues. The paper is about the effect on students' final grades of attending lectures...
Blaine Morrow's insight:

" Could I just record these lectures in my office (or my bath, or on the sofa) ahead of time, give them to you to listen to each week in your own time, and then use the actual lecture time for other forms of learning? Or does the ‘lecture experience’ actually add something to your learning, which therefore gives an advantage to students who attend a physical campus? I don’t think we completely answered this question in this paper, but it’s at least a start towards understanding this issue."

Data on whether and how students watch screencasts - Casting Out Nines - The Chronicle of Higher Education | 3C Media Solutions | Scoop.it
Blaine Morrow's insight:

"...we have data on the efficacy of screencasts in improving student learning. This is not just anecdotal evidence, or one professor’s experiences in one small class. For those who are waiting for the evidence to show that alternative instructional methods work, here you go. Screencasting is probably the least “alternative” of the alternatives since it’s basically just a recorded lecture, but I include it because it’s not lecture given in the class."
