Wilko Dijkhuis's insight:

GOOD IDEA,
This edu development path actually makes sense:
- take a traditional text book
- digitise it + add multimedia
- make it open, i.e.
- - - make it free
- - - make it changeable (select, add, modify)
- - - create a group authoring environment
- - - give groups access to the results of other groups
- add individualized tests and lots of formative feedback
- apply learning analytics to the system use en feedback
- use analytics this to improve

- let each institution make its own version of the course-ware

 

NOTE: openness is a critical success factor for this approach

Fiona Harvey's curator insight, April 27, 7:08 AM

Brilliant post and essential viewing (e-Literate TV) which brings together researchers awarded funds via the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.  Each were awarded a small grant (up to $25,000) to investigate aspects of MOOC design and application.  watch the mini interviews at the MRI conference fir info on each area.  Alison Littlejohn (Glasgow Caledonian) & Martin Wellar (OU) are involved. 

Greenwich Connect's curator insight, April 28, 5:39 AM

Are we really in a "trough of disillusionment" with MOOCs? Yes we are starting to learn what works, what doesn't work, which areas need to be improved, developing pedagogical approaches, etc. But despite their current shortcomings we still sense a feeling of optimism around MOOCs, and excitement for what they may become. This is different to the hyped up "peak of inflated expectations" - mass hysteria about unprecedented access to higher education, hundreds of thousands of students and superstar professors. It is more of a cautious but solid enthusiasm, combined with a committed rolling up of sleeves - a determination to explore and experiment with open online learning in a variety of forms. This, rather than disillusionment, is what we see in this series of videos from e-Literate TV. Well worth a watch.

Manuel León Urrutia's curator insight, April 28, 9:15 AM

Three interesting videos so far in this TV series. Of special interest is the second one, consisting of a debate between an enthusiast and a skeptic.

50 Apps That Clarify 50 New Ways To Learn - te@chthought | e-learning and moocs | Scoop.it

"Below we’ve gathered a diverse list of learning apps across iOS and Android from giants like Google, Apple, Microsoft, as well as upstarts like Brainfeed, The Sandbox, and Knowji. None of the apps are perfect, but each app does something special, and in that talent represents what’s possible as we careen towards 2020 and beyond.

 

Learning through play. Self-directed learning. Flipped learning. Mobile learning. Collaborative learning. Social learning. It’s all here. Alone, none offer the turn-key approach to education that textbooks have traditionally turned to. But this is a strength. As education technology grows, we can adapt to new learning models that take advantage of the fragmented but enormous potential of self-directed, creative, collaborative, and almost entirely mobile learning."

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning | e-learning and moocs | Scoop.it

Many educators are doing Education 1.0; talking about doing Education 2.0; when they should be planning and implementing Education 3.0. This post compares the developments of the Internet-Web to those of education. The Internet has become an integral thread of the tapestries of most societies throughout the globe. The web influences people’s way of thinking, doing and being; and people influence the development and content of the web.

Here are some reasons why your presentations are BAD!   We know that so many of you use programs like PowerPoint or Prezi because they have been around for a while, and it is what you know, but change is not always a bad thing, especially if that change can lead to presentations beyond your wildest imagination.

Gavin Meikle's curator insight, March 10, 6:02 AM

A (mostly) great post with some sound advice for better presentations.  Here's my take on it .....
 

Design

At the risk of upsetting all those wonderful Graphic Designers out there, I would recommend going easy on the fancy designs.   They are not essential.  What is essential  is a clear simple strategy with one idea per slide, minimal text, no bullet points (yes I mean it!) and clear simple pictures, graphs and diagrams to illustrate your verbal messages.
 

Content
Developing compelling content is important but try to avoid using a script when you deliver.    reading scripts leads to flat, lifeless delivery and makes it much harder to respond, "on the fly2 to your audience.  Instead use  a few cue cards with key points only or a simple mind map.  Either will keep you on track without restricting your ability to improvise in response to audience reaction.

 

Story Telling
To true. Stories are much more engaging that lists of facts or endless graphs.  Stories also create emotional engagement which is needed if you want the audience to be motivated to do something after the presentation. 

 

Humour
Yes it is powerful but it is risky too.   Telling jokes rarely works and can lead to all sorts of problems (poor timing, inappropriate content etc.)  Instead use gentle self deprecating humour.  Be willing to poke a little fun at yourself and the audience will warm to you. 

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, March 10, 10:43 AM

My take on good presentations:  1) Story 2) Content: Restrain your left brain 3) Design: the experience 4) Humor (optional).  Presenting starts with story and uses the visual design to reinforce and add new dimensions to your message. Design the experience, not the slides. Humor works if it's actually funny--not contrived. I've seen a lot that doesn't. Humor is optional.  If it comes naturally, great.  Focusing on story and image is mandatory.  Use serious restraint with putting words on your slides.  Words are processed by the rational, 'left-brain' which takes your audience out of any emotional experience and into thinking and linear processing.  Take them on a journey, don't give them a lecture.  If you feel compelled to give your audience words, give them a handout when you're done. 

rwestby's curator insight, March 10, 11:36 AM

PowToon, a Chrome Web App (in Beta) is a great presentation tool that can animate and jazz up even the most gray of presentations. Upgrades are available for those who like  a bit extra.

A Comparison of Five Free MOOC Platforms for Educators

A Comparison of Five Free MOOC Platforms for Educators | e-learning and moocs | Scoop.it
There are a number of good options for educators looking to build their own MOOCs. Here is a look at five of the most interesting platforms.

 

By the end of 2013, most top universities had started to offer some sort of MOOC (massive open online course). Now, we are starting to see the MOOC product move into the corporate and private realm. Companies like Google and Tenaris are using MOOCs for training their employees, MongoDB is educating developers through the MOOC medium and thousands of private instructors are teaching classes on sites like Udemy.

 

If you are considering a MOOC for yourself or your organization, you’ll first need to determine which tool you will use to build the course. The following is an assessment of five popular free MOOC (and MOOC-like) platforms.

Miloš Bajčetić's curator insight, February 27, 5:18 AM

Moodle is an open-source LMS that allows users to build and offer online courses. It was built for traditional online classrooms rather than MOOCs, which attract a large number of students. It tends to be easier to install than edX, and there are hosted or one-click install options available.

Moodle is suited for organizations that want a full-featured, customizable LMS. The platform offers more than edX in terms of educational tools, analytics and SCORM compliance.

Aanzet tot echte leer-en-instructie-theorie (uit de hoek van wij zijn ons brein)

UDL lijkt een soort op neurologie gebaseerde ergonomische benadering van het leerproces te zijn. Vanuit die vrij theoretische benadering weet men richtlijnen/aandachtspunten voor het goed laten verlopen van een leerproces te formuleren. Als praktiserend onderwijsontwerper komen mij die richtlijnen als zeer plausibel, waardevol en praktisch over. Het verhaal is nog niet af, maar dit maakt de indruk van een goed begin.


Er zijn voorbeelden van toepassing van UDL bij onderwijs ontwerp.

This disruptive model elite university starts in september after three years of preparation. It maintains the concept of a four year inmersive campus education and an accredited diplom at the end. For the rest, all is innovated:

- assessment is purely based on demonstration of progress in the seminars

- Students live in metropoles and move each year.

- And the costs: €10.000 per year.

Disruption not by numbers. Targeting exceptional students with an approach that in my opinion is not scalable and has not to be scalable because of the target group. A question inanswered is: when teaching is closely related to research (as is the case at universities this initiative tries to disrupt), where is the research taking place?

Een uitputtend overzicht van de warboel in het hoofd van onderwijs"wetenschappers".


Waarom de quotes rond wetenschappers?


1) echte wetenschap streeft naar logisch consistente theorieën (dit is een systeemloos curiositeiten kabinet waaruit managers, politici en ideologen alles bij elkaar kunnen grabbelen wat ze kunnen gebruiken - dit opportunistische selecteren van bruikbare brokjes noemt men heel hoogdravend: "het formuleren van een visie op leren" -)

 

2) echte wetenschap formuleert toetsbare theorieën, Theorieën die de toetsing niet overleven worden verlaten (veel van de "wetenschap" in dit holistische overzicht is of niet toetsbaar, of bleek bij empirische toetsing niet te kloppen)

 

Overigens wel een leuk overzicht van de de manier waarop allerlei kreten in het onderwijsvernieuwing debat worden gebruikt.

Wilko Dijkhuis's insight:

Interesting insight in the (lack of?) understanding of Higher ED decision makers (have a look at the ppts).

- they still not really see the diff between xMOOCs and cMOOCs   (although some see correctly that every letter in MOOC is negotiable,    they still speak about MOOCs as an uniform thing)

- they did not really pick up the emergent new HE markets  (although some have correctly picked up the danger of unbundeling, and most see that traditional USA BA programs do have little  value)

- they still have faith in conventional pedagogical "science" a la Downs and Siemens and think  that Harvard and Stanford professors that do xMOOCs are amateurs

- they still have a blind belief in quality control systems (they do not see that their quality control systems are to higher ed as what credit defaults swaps were to the bond/stock markets)

A speech on MOOC's, by Sir John Daniel. As he did 1,5 years ago, he's putting MOOC's in the broader perspective of online and distance learning. But with the added knowledge of what has happened since, he now draws the conclusion on the future of MOOC:

 

"MOOCs have shaken the complacency of higher education more than any other development in years. This does not mean that MOOCs are the future of higher education. The number of MOOCs being produced may start to decline and their formats will certainly diversify, often coming to resemble more closely traditional online courses that lead to credentials.


But this will not all be old wine in new bottles. As well as moving steadily online, higher education will offer many shorter courses with different awards. The higher education enterprise will be unbundled. That will mean more partnerships between institutions and also much greater freedom for students construct their own higher education by using the courses, content and services of a variety of providers."

Why massive open online courses (still) matter

2013 was a year of hype for MOOCs (massive open online courses). Great big numbers and great big hopes were followed by some disappointing first results. But the head of edX, Anant Agarwal, makes the case that MOOCs still matter -- as a way to share high-level learning widely and supplement (but perhaps not replace) traditional classrooms. Agarwal shares his vision of blended learning, where teachers create the ideal learning experience for 21st century students.
Wilko Dijkhuis's insight:

Very usefull TED talk

 

MISSION of edX:
Re-imagine education using modern technology

 

The real meat of the presentation starts at about 8:50
(so be a active learner and fast forward)

 

What makes learning effective
(which principles/tactics MOOCs use to optimise learning)
- active learning (craig + lockhart 1972)
   lesson = 7 minute clip followed by student activity,
   repeat this N times
- self paced (pause, rewind, fast fore-ward your prof.)
- instant feedback (e.g. computer graded exercises)
- gamification + virtual labs
   (hands on learning, try things out)
- peer assessment/learning
   (real discussion on forums, learn by teaching)
- use classroom for in person interaction (flipped classroom)

 

Missing in this presentation
- assessment shift from summative to formative
  (only implied above)
- mastery learning
