The 6 Laws of Learning No Instructional Designer Can Afford to Ignore | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"Today it is almost more likely to find companies pursuing eLearning than it is the traditional course in education. This makes good designers of eLearning programs a necessity. As a designer, you want to be able to stand out from the crowd and become known not as simply a good designer, but as a great one. You want your students to be able to learn and to see that they are progressing and you want to be sought out for your knowledge and skill in designing."

MOOCs 2.0: Scaling One-on-One Learning

MOOCs 2.0: Scaling One-on-One Learning | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"In the summer of 2011, massive open online courses, or MOOCs, appeared seemingly out of nowhere and changed the education landscape forever. In many ways, MOOCs are like the troublemakers in Apple’s legendary “Think Different” ad: You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things."

When Students Get Creative With Tech Tools, Teachers Focus on Skills

When Students Get Creative With Tech Tools, Teachers Focus on Skills | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"One of the most intimidating aspects of infusing technology into curriculum is that educators often believe that they will have to master and then teach their students to use new technology tools before assigning a project. These concerns are understandable as our time for professional development is finite and school curricula are already packed. However, consider the impact if, rather than focusing on new tools, we explored the skills students need to learn and then incorporated the most effective digital resources to accomplish those objectives."

SCORM Still Dominating ELearning?

SCORM Still Dominating ELearning? | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"For a very long time, SCORM was the go-to protocol for tracking and recording elearning. All the major elearning development platforms made it possible to publish to a version of SCORM so that the courses could be uploaded to the learning management system of your choice.


As technology became leaner, the learning industry began to realize that the SCORM specification that we used was falling behind."

MOOCs -- Completion Is Not Important

MOOCs -- Completion Is Not Important | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are oftendescribed as the future of education — or at least a significant part of it. But there may be a significant problem with them: a very small proportion of students who start them actually finish. This poses a serious threat to their legitimacy. Many are beginning to think that if less than 10% of students even complete MOOCs, they must be useless. This worry is largely unfounded, since people benefit even without completion."

Humanities teach. The “digital” reaches. Therefore, the digital humanities should reach and teach as a matter of concept and design. That’s what they’re for."

Essay urges professors not to ban student emails

Essay urges professors not to ban student emails | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"The article about Spring-Serenity Duvall, a communications professor who banned students from emailing her and lived to blog about it, caught my eye on the same day my own inboxes at two colleges spilled over with bewildered messages from students. Some had been told to purchase the wrong edition of our course text, resulting in their plodding through a chapter on meta-commentary instead of one on contributing meaningfully to group discussions; more simply hadn’t received their textbooks and didn’t know when they would; still others, I suspected, were so besieged by first-week information overload that they needed reassurance from a human who had seemed friendly enough on the first day of class."
