Socrates On A Screen? The Limits of .edu Reform - WiredAcademic

Socrates On A Screen? The Limits of .edu Reform - WiredAcademic | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it

Everything changes, they say – but does education ever really change? Technology has wrought change across the American landscape, transforming even our interpersonal relationships. The recent rise of massive open on-line courses (MOOCs) seems to fit with the rest of these experiences: the internet makes stuff better. But throughout American history we see reformers trumpeting a “transformation” in education.

Teaching Is Not a Business

Teaching Is Not a Business | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it
Reformers misunderstand how central human relationships are to the educational process.

 

"While technology can be put to good use by talented teachers, they, and not the futurists, must take the lead. The process of teaching and learning is an intimate act that neither computers nor markets can hope to replicate. Small wonder, then, that the business model hasn’t worked in reforming the schools — there is simply no substitute for the personal element."

A global quality platform to review non-institutional education providers is to be piloted by America’s Council for Higher Education Accreditation and its International Quality Group. The platform is aimed at protecting students and is a response to the explosion of non-traditional provision – including MOOCs – and increasingly international higher education.

“That’s where it’s different to massive open online courses [MOOCs], for example, which is why I think the MOOC completion rate is so much lower because there isn’t that additional element of mentoring and assistance,” she says.

Online education platform EdCast puts universities in charge of their content @insidehighered

Online education platform EdCast puts universities in charge of their content @insidehighered | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it

The online education platform provider EdCast, Silicon Valley’s latest contribution to the ed-tech space, wants to be simultaneously massive and intimate, private and public -- and preferably to stay out of the spotlight.

 

In simple terms, EdCast is a service provider built on top of Open edX, the Cambridge, Mass.-based MOOC provider’s open-source initiative. The company will help institutions -- and particularly groups of institutions working together -- build their own online education platforms where they can run multiple instances of the same courses, removing the need for institutions to do the coding themselves.

For Charlotte Masson, learning is a way of life, but once she had finished her master’s degree, going back to school for a third time wasn’t an option.

 

“Sometimes I wonder if we’ve lost our vision of education,” said Tom Bronson, MIT online programs committee member. “Universities were created to establish an educated society. There is strength and stability that comes with a citizenship that can think outside the box. We’re looking to create and sustain an educated society.”

Professors help startups teach real-world skills online without university bureaucracy

Professors help startups teach real-world skills online without university bureaucracy | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it

It’s unusual for businesses to interact with students in a major university class, and its an important reason why so few students graduate without having solved real world problems. But, Johns Hopkins University and online course provider Coursera, may have found a novel solution to bridge business and students.

 

With an eye on training the next generation of data gurus, Johns Hopkins has been running a free data science course through Coursera and just announced a partnership with tech startup Swiftkey, which will design and tutor students as they complete their final homework assignment (a “capstone”).

La Universidad de Buenos Aires acaba de dar sus primeros pasos en el “universo MOOC” con un curso gratuito y abierto sobre aprendizaje en redes y tecnología educativa que convocó a 2.800 personas de todo el mundo. “En la UBA estamos acostumbrados a la masividad, pero el desafío de un curso MOOC es hacer un seguimiento personalizado de los alumnos”, afirma Carina Lion, directora del Centro de Innovación en Tecnología y Pedagogía (CITEP). Lion subraya que la UBA no comparte el paradigma de negocios creado por Coursera, sino que busca mantener la misma relación con los docentes en un entorno abierto y gratuito.

Here Come the Data Scientists | Technology and Learning @insidehighered | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it

A few days after the Hewlett sponsored gathering Learning with MOOCs wrapped, one word keeps buzzing through my brain: and that word is data.

 

This was less a MOOC workshop than a coming out party for the postsecondary learning-focused data scientists.

 

Instructional designers were yesterday’s hot new member of the course development team. Today, the must-have course development team member (along with faculty and instructional designers and media specialist and librarians) is the data scientist.

 

And not just any data scientist. A data scientist who is also an expert in program assessment. A data scientist who is also a learning geek, steeped in all things Bloom and constructivist.

Anant Agarwal, CEO of the nonprofit MOOC platform provider edX, had some harsh words for traditional education, saying it's "pathetic" that classrooms today still look like the did decades ago.
