Online K-12 Education in Iowa? 


Students take classes over the Internet from teachers employed by the corporate partner, not by the physical schools. Representatives from K12Inc. say this new-wave educational approach is perfectly tailored for students who are either home-schooled, like Theo had been, or struggling in traditional schools. Critics say the schools are not only illegal but also a way that for-profit companies can siphon off millions in tax dollars while delivering dubious results.

Moodle Mythbusters: 5 common myths about Moodle…busted (a poster to share/edit) | Moodle News

Moodle Mythbusters: 5 common myths about Moodle…busted (a poster to share/edit) | Moodle News | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

The myths

  1. You need to be an expert and tech savvy to use Moodle
  2. With Moodle, you need to be on computers all the time.
  3. Students will love Moodle because it is online and in ‘their world’
  4. Moodle is just about fun and games, it’s a time waster and does not encourage ‘real work’
  5. Moodle is just another thing we need to learn, deal with and worry about now. Admin will probably switch to something new in a year or two anyway so why bother using in and learning about it now.

From Distraction to Engagement: Wireless Devices in the Classroom (EDUCAUSE Quarterly) | EDUCAUSE | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Wireless devices in the classroom threaten to distract student attention but also offer opportunities for student engagement.


Faculty use different methods to reduce in-class distractions, up to mandating no use of wireless devices during class sessions.


To increase student engagement using wireless devices, faculty employ creative options for making wireless devices part of instruction, from cell phones as clickers to laptops for on-the-fly web research.

Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration

Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

This issue brings an array of interesting articles and research on many topics of interest to distance learning administrators, including faculty mentoring and training, fair use, and disabilities. and faculty incentives. However one article, by J. Elliott Campbell and David Campbell, strays from the usual topics of greatest interest in that it researches the environmental consequences (carbon dioxide emissions savings) of a group of students taking online courses. This is a topic I've thought about for a long time. I estimated back in the 1990s that our then small distance learning program (fewer than 300 students) at the University of West Georgia enabled students and faculty to save the equivalent of 3-4 trips around the globe in just one semester.

Which Browser is Best for Security? - eSecurity Planet

Which Browser is Best for Security? - eSecurity Planet | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Speaking at the RSA Conference in San Francisco yesterday, researchers at Accuvant Labs presented the results of a three-month security evaluation of Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Microsoft Internet Explorer. The goal of the study was to determine which browser is the most secure against attack -- an important consideration, given that browsers continue to represent the widest vector for attacks.


The winner: Chrome. Accuvant's analysis concluded that Chrome was, by far, more secure than IE. In turn, IE was found to be somewhat more secure than Firefox.
