I continually encounter the problem of citing media with my graduate students. It is good to have a resource that allows them to discover the answers on their own vs. simply defaulting to "ask the prof" which teaches nothing. CMZ

A Roadmap to Online College Student Decision Making | E-Learning Suggestions, Ideas, and Tips | Scoop.it

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, in 2012 approximately 2.6 million students were enrolled in fully-online degree programs, while 5.5 million were taking at least one online course.  For institutions to fully understand how to best serve this growing population, it is critical to understand who is studying online and what they are looking for in from their degree program.

10 tendencias para a aprendizagem mista

Minha tendencia favoita  é :

#avancee

Leonard Waks's curator insight, November 16, 1:20 AM

Of these 10 proposed drivers, I an guessing that the most important will be #5 and #6. At least for the time being, universities are really strapped for funds. Consider for # 5 a 'MOOC-Based wrapped course' where a prof assigns a MOOC as homework, and then  meets with the class one day a week = and follows up with a couple of weeks of class time at the end for projects and examinations. This strikes me as a  good division of labor in many courses - letting the high production videos do what they do best and the prof do what demands a human mind and heart for problem solving and coaching and mentoring. It can reduce faculty time by more than 1/2 without loss of quality. Now for #6, consider a group of twenty faculty members teaching wrapped courses based on the very same MOOC. They will have many questions and concerns and they can (a) find each other and (b) address them collectively through their learning network. The only other 'driver' that floats my boat at this point is #3. Many students like MOOC-based courses. The lectures are excellent and fit conveniently into schedules, and the professor is available to serve his or her most important functions. But I wouldn't oversell this. Many students still prefer day to day hand holding and may actually need it from a socio-emotional perspective to stay engaged in the course. So I'm betting on #5 and #6 as most important.

Bad PowerPoint design may be just as detrimental to your presentation as smelling like a horse. When you have poorly designed slides, a few things happen: your professionalism is questioned (because you essentially tell the people looking at your PowerPoint that you don't know how to create professional work); your audience members get distracted as they toggle between looking at your bad design and listen to what you're actually saying (and, in the end, they don't really ingest either); and your audience just gets bored or annoyed--which is about the worst possible outcome when presenting. Obviously, there are a number of…
