Future Thoughts (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | eLearning at eCampus ULg | Scoop.it

The integration of technologies such as MOOCs, lecture-capture systems, and video telepresence has broadened students' access and choice and made education more "location agnostic." But there's still a major challenge in creating high-quality, engaging, and seamless experiences for online and distance learning students and educators. Most institutions are not there yet, which means that traditional face-to-face learning models in higher education will continue. Digital learning materials such as e-books have worked to reduce costs and provide a more personalized learning experience, yet studies show that millennials prefer reading from print books for both deep reading and enjoyment.1 For this reason, I don't see traditional books going away anytime soon.

Horizon 2020: Surge in applications but low success rate

Up to the end of February 2015, after 14 months, Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation 2014-20, had received 45,000 applications. This represents a large surge in the number of applications.

The success rate for applications was 14% to 15% on average, while in Framework Programme 7 (2007-13), the predecessor of Horizon 2020, the success rate was between 19% and 22%. In some of the sub-programmes of Horizon 2020, notably in the Health Sciences and in Future and Emerging Technologies, or ‘FET Open’, the success rate for applications was down to between 2% and 3%.

Web Platform Gives Students an Alternative to the ‘Wall of Text’

Web Platform Gives Students an Alternative to the ‘Wall of Text’ | eLearning at eCampus ULg | Scoop.it

"It’s difficult to keep students engaged — and awake — when assigning them readings from long and often dull textbooks. Two researchers wanted to change that.

 

Their creation is zyBooks, a web-based platform that mixes learning activities such as question sets and animations with some written content, largely as a replacement for text. The idea is that professors can use zyBooks instead of traditional textbooks in order to help students engage with the material and perform better."
