RSC e-Assessment: #MOOCs: will losing the live be a loss?

RSC e-Assessment: #MOOCs: will losing the live be a loss? | e-Assessment in Further and Higher Education | Scoop.it

I've been thinking about the implications for teaching, learning and assessment if the live element of teaching is no longer there. There do not appear to be any synchronous activities in the xMOOC I will be taking next year with Coursera and if this trend towards teaching via MOOCs and asynchronous activities continues, I wonder what, if anything, will be lost? 

 

'I am currently doing some re-designing of the JISC RSC Scotland's online courses, and with all the discussion around MOOCs at the moment, this has prompted some questions for me about the synchronous, live aspect of teaching and how / if it needs to feature in online courses.'...

do I need to be logged in to my google account to view this Grainne?

Hi Joan, thanks for asking - and the answer is yes and no! If you are logged into a google account, you should be able to access the google doc but if not, you can access a HTML version (this does not display quite as well however). Select the plain HTML link.

Mobile Learning infokit / Home | e-Assessment in Further and Higher Education | Scoop.it

I think mobile learning opens up many interesting opportunities for assessment. These might be things like the ability to access assessments related to a particular context on a mobile device while physically in that environment, assess group work/collaboration between people in geographically dispersed locations via online networks, ipsative assessment via games on a mobile device, reminders and alerts for assessments sent to a mobile phone etc. This Mobile Learning Infokit provides some useful tips on how to get started with mobile learning. It features definitions for mobile learning, hints for developing a mobile learning strategy, pedagogic frameworks and case studies.

A short course on mLearning Design (#edumooc) | rjh.goingeast.ca

A short course on mLearning Design (#edumooc) | rjh.goingeast.ca | e-Assessment in Further and Higher Education | Scoop.it
This short course on mLearning Design can be taken on mobile devices and provides an introduction to mLearning design and best practice. I have tried it on an iPhone and iPad and the content displayed well. The course does not feature many interactive elements (apart from the opportunity to share reflections and view comments from others) and is designed to be undertaken as an individual (e.g. it does not encourage discussion / accessing social networks as specific learning tasks) but it does give quite a clear overview of how to get started with designing mLearning - and poses some reflective questions on each section. I'm including it here for anyone considering incorporating assessment within an mLearning context. Icon by http://dryicons.com.
