Engage Students with Flipped Video Tasks

Engage Students with Flipped Video Tasks | Distance and Virtual Learning | Scoop.it

One of the major criticisms of this method though is that a dull unengaging content doesn't suddenly become engaging because it's on a video on the web, so how do we get students to engage with the content and make sure they watch it in a challenging and interactive way.

Vialogues is a useful tool for attempting to do this (though dull content will always be dull) because it enables you to create interaction around the video that actually gets students to think about and engage with the content.

What is the theory that underpins moocs? | Distance and Virtual Learning | Scoop.it

These are a few of the more prominent attributes of MOOCs that I’ve been involved with. As stated above, there is overlap between our model at that of Coursera/EDx. However, Coursera/EDx emulates the existing education system, choosing instead to transfer it online rather than transform it online. No doubt they will continue to evolve their model and we’ll continue to evolve ours.

"Distance education begins in the 10th row" was being negative about the kids at the back of his classroom, but the comment also taps into the old image of distance learners as disengaged themselves.

Crowdsourcing a Curriculum, pt. 1: Program Name | Digital Pedagogy | HYBRID PEDAGOGY | Distance and Virtual Learning | Scoop.it

The new program’s medium, the internet and its various tools, influences its content, such that throughout the coursework students will consider the various ways that technology and digital space influence communication and engagement with literary texts. Since the program relies on networked media to offer a unique alternative to a more traditional English degree, it makes sense for the program’s creation to also be influenced by networked media practices.
