Who's Reading Your Research? Academia.edu Offers an Analytics Dashboard For Scholars

Who's Reading Your Research? Academia.edu Offers an Analytics Dashboard For Scholars | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

by AUDREY WATTERS on 15 AUG, 2012


Cross-posted on Inside Higher Ed


 


"Academia.edu, a social network for scholars, is unveiling a new feature today that its founder Richard Price hopes will help address part of the “credit gap” for research. Academia.edu allows users to upload and share their research papers, and the site is launching its Analytics Dashboard for Scientists today that Price says will let scholars see the “real-time impact” of their work.


 


Academic publishing has long been a black-box in terms of both who’s reading and who’s citing. Publishing in journals may be expected (required, even), but the delays in the publishing process can make it challenging to ascertain how much influence work has. “It typically takes about 3 to 5 years for citations to actually appear back in the process,” argues Price, pointing to the lengthy time between researching, writing, peer-reviewing, and publishing.


 


That’s part of the problem with services like Google Scholar that do offer citation counts, Price contends. And certainly the new feature available on Academia.edu today is more akin to Google Analytics than Google Scholar. You can see the pageviews on your papers; you can see the keywords that led people to them; you can see where those viewers come from.


 


The latter only gives details about the country of origin – enough for scholars to be able to tout the global reach of their work. It would be interesting to see more granular information – which city, which university even – but Price says there are certain privacy concerns before offering those sorts of details..."

BYOD in the 21st Century - A Look at the Issues with a Great Video | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Whenever schools look at BYOD (or BYOT) there are pros and cons. This post provides links to a number of resources that discuss the advantages and limitations and includes an excellent (and enjoyable) short video that presents a quick pedagogical look at BYOD in the 21st century. Well worth watching in my opinion.

SCORM » SCORM Explained

SCORM » SCORM Explained | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

What is SCORM?


SCORM is a set of technical standards for e-learning software products. SCORM tells programmers how to write their code so that it can “play well” with other e-learning software. It is the de facto industry standard for e-learning interoperability. Specifically, SCORM governs how online learning content and Learning Management Systems (LMSs) communicate with each other. SCORM does not speak to instructional design or any other pedagogical concern, it is purely a technical standard.

Teaching Teachers to Tweet (Part II)

Teaching Teachers to Tweet (Part II) | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

By Justin Reich 


Before we teach how to tweet, we must teach why one would tweet at all...


Folks seemed to find my last post about Teaching Teachers to Tweet somewhat useful (special thanks to Larry Ferlazzo and Eric Sheninger for some early re-tweets), although as I re-read the post over the weekend, I realized that something important was missing. We shouldn't just teach teachers to tweet; we need to offer them a model of lifelong learning (specifically, Personal Learning Networks) in which learning to use Twitter makes sense.

Syllabus [an online journal of selected college syllabi] | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

A new, free, peer-reviewed, online quarterly journal that states its purpose this way:

 

"College professors should take their teaching as seriously as scholarship, and many do. This new peer-reviewed journal will provide feedback and encouragement to college instructors, and recognize their work as a legitimate form of scholarship. When we think seriously about teaching, our students benefit."

 

This first issue contains a very interesting selection of remarkably well-written and well-considered syllabi. As the publication accumulates an archive of issues, it should serve as quite a valuable resource. -JL

Another works with a human teacher getting direct instruction, while another gets a digital lesson delivered from their teacher’s avatar.
