3 uses of Virtual Reality in workplace education

3 uses of Virtual Reality in workplace education | e-learning-ukr | Scoop.it
I'm always surprised when someone makes a sweeping declaration such as "No one's using virtual reality in the workplace". I heard this very statement recently at an e-learning conference. Yep, an e-learning conference. Sure, VR is an emerging technology, but as 20 real-world examples of Virtual Reality can attest, early adopters are indeed putting it…

First-ever study on MOOC use and non-use in developing countries | CourseTalk

First-ever study on MOOC use and non-use in developing countries | CourseTalk | e-learning-ukr | Scoop.it
Young people in the developing world use online courses very differently than their developed world counterparts

That's according to the first-ever study on MOOC use and non-use in developing countries, which was arranged by the Advancing MOOCs for Development Initiative.

The Technology & Social Change Group (TASCHA) at the University of Washington Information School studied young adults in Colombia, the Philippines and South Africa.

They found:

- Certification and completion rates exceed those of developed countries Nearly half of MOOC users surveyed held a course certificate. Nearly 80% reported completing at least one course.

- Many MOOC users have no postsecondary education A quarter of MOOC users reported high school as their highest level of education completed.

- Time is a bigger barrier than technology Half of non-users aware of MOOCs cited this as a main reason for not taking courses, while just 4% cited lack of computer access and 6% cited high Internet costs.

- Awareness is a critical hurdle 79% of MOOC non-users had never heard of MOOCs.

Grouping MOOC Students by Communication Mode Doesn't Help Completion -- Campus Technology

Grouping MOOC Students by Communication Mode Doesn't Help Completion -- Campus Technology | e-learning-ukr | Scoop.it
A research project at Pennsylvania State University looked at how to improve the completion rate for people who undertake massive open online courses — a rate that currently stands at a dismal 10 percent. The study examined the impact of putting learners into study groups with different kinds of communication based on their stated preferences.

The results, "Exploring the communication preferences of MOOC learners and the value of preference-based groups: Is grouping enough?" were published in the March 4, 2016 edition of Educational Technology Research & Development. The work was sponsored by Penn State's Center for Online Innovation in Learning (COIL).

Research: Facebook May Keep Students in MOOCs -- Campus Technology

Research: Facebook May Keep Students in MOOCs -- Campus Technology | e-learning-ukr | Scoop.it
Researchers at Pennsylvania State University have published a study that suggests students may be more likely to stick with massive open online courses (MOOCs) if they use Facebook.

Saijing Zheng, a former doctoral student at Penn State and current research scientist at Microsoft led the research and said she found that open course students were more engaged on Facebook groups and preferred interacting more on the social media site than through the course tools. That may be good news for MOOC instructors who, according to Zheng, get frustrated because 90 percent of students who enroll in MOOCs leave the course after less than two weeks.
