Blaine Morrow's curator insight, June 10, 2013 11:25 AM

"Videos are great for presenting visual information and emotional appeals, but not particularly effective at diving below the surface of non-visual theoretical or abstract topics or for driving critical thinking. What’s more, any video presented in class must compete for attention and memory with the five-plus hours the typical student spends outside of class watching television programs, movies, and other onscreen entertainment. (Nielsen, 2013)"

Top Free Classes's curator insight, March 1, 2013 2:32 AM

Agree with this comment:  "We are not doing enough hands on learning in our undergrad courses as it is and our graduates and grad students don't know the first thing about how to apply the information they "earned" when they get out into the real world. That is the change that needs to happen in our education system and it needs to happen  quickly. If not our institutions are going to implode. When the populace feels there is little to no value in your product, you wont last long in the field." --GwendolynThompsonSchmidt
