Daphne Koller: What we're learning from online education

'Daphne Koller is enticing top universities to put their most intriguing courses online for free -- not just as a service, but as a way to research how people learn. Each keystroke, comprehension quiz, peer-to-peer forum discussion and self-graded assignment builds an unprecedented pool of data on how knowledge is processed and, most importantly, absorbed."

Review: Learning Everywhere by Chad Udell

Review: Learning Everywhere by Chad Udell | eLearning and mLearning weekly | Scoop.it

I bought this book at the mLearn Conference in San Jose and as the reviewer says it is a great book to dip into. If you're not actually involved in rolling out an mLearning project, some parts may be a bit overly technical and detailed, but I think one of its great strengths is that it gets you thinking about the kinds of questions you should be asking BEFORE you even embark on mLearning.
