Tin Can API

Tin Can API | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

The Tin Can API (sometimes known as the Experience API or xAPI) is a brand new specification for learning technology that makes it possible to collect data about the wide range of experiences a person has (online and offline). This API captures data in a consistent format about a person or group’s activities from many technologies. Very different systems are able to securely communicate by capturing and sharing this stream of activities using Tin Can’s simple vocabulary.

Digital Collaboration and Classroom Practice - Research Alliance for NYC Schools - NYU Steinhardt

Digital Collaboration and Classroom Practice - Research Alliance for NYC Schools - NYU Steinhardt | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Digital Collaboration and Classroom Practice presents our findings, including insights on why educators did or did not use Connect; what might have made Connect more useful; and what external tools educators use for similar purposes.

Among our key findings:

Administrators and teachers with school-wide roles used Connect much more heavily than teachers who did not hold school-wide roles.The educators who used ARIS Connect most frequently did so because they felt it was required as part of the NYC DOE’s Inquiry process (in which teams meet regularly to develop data-based strategies for addressing the needs of struggling students).Educators reported a number of obstacles to using Connect, including confusion about its purpose, a lack of training, and technical challenges.Educators use other online tools to fill three basic functions: communicating with students, sharing files, and searching for resources. 

The brief delves further into each of these findings, offering lessons and recommendations for NYC and other school districts as they develop new tools aimed at improving classroom instruction.

Moving in the direction of mobile learning?  Working to enable your traditional eLearning courses to run on tablets and smartphones?  Consider another direction.  Unless your eLearning offerings draw rave reviews from your workforce, moving them to a mobile device only makes it more convenient for your employees to access marginally effective training.

Raise the bar on your online training as you go mobile.  Produce more effective, more engaging mLearning in a fraction of the time required to develop unengaging eLearning.  How fast?  How about 8 hours to produce training with 10 distinct learning activities?  With built-in addictive learning games, extensive leaderboard capabilities, and the most extensive analytics on the market.

The 2014 NMC Technology Outlook for Australian Tertiary Education: A Horizon Project Regional Report reflects a collaborative research effort between the NMC and Open Universities Australia to help inform Australian education leaders about significant developments in technologies supporting teaching, learning, and creative inquiry in tertiary education. This report was produced to explore emerging technologies and forecast their potential impact expressly in a tertiary education context. In the effort that took place from January through March 2014, a carefully selected panel of experts was asked to consider hundreds of relevant articles, news, blog posts, research, and project examples as part of the preparation that ultimately pinpointed the most notable emerging technology topics, trends, and challenges for Australian tertiary education over the next five years. View the work the produced the report and meet the expert panel at aus.wiki.nmc.org.

Smartphones: The Silent Killer Of The Web As You Know It | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
The PC is dying, long live the PC! These headlines have been thrown around for years, as sales of laptops and desktops have continually dwindled downward.
Kim Flintoff's insight:
The implications for learning engagement are significant. Recent data suggests that mobile engagement can potentially target 93% of the world's population. Learning design must shift to accommodate these growing patterns for engagement - instructional design and knowledge of more dynamic mobile platforms will need to become more common. Universities are still a decade or more behind current trends. What will blended and elearning look like in another few years if anyone takes notice of this?

Students as Customers: Time for Educators to Get On Board | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Automating services and communication provides students with efficiency related to administrative and tedious tasks associated with their educational experience so they can focus on what educators agree is most important: learning. Further, faculty would be able to focus on the delivery of instruction where it is needed most, rather than leaving the students’ ability to receive and process course content to chance. Adaptive learning technologies, for example, are popping up in a variety of major educational systems as a way to adjust the learning experience to the needs of the individual student in real time, in a highly scalable way.

It was a revolution moving higher education from bricks to clicks… and now it's started to go back to bricks again.

Online university providers, which offered people the chance to study from home, are turning full circle by creating a network of learning centres where students can meet and study together.

Instead of demolishing the dusty old classrooms, the online university revolution is responsible for opening some new ones.

Blended Learning Model Definitions | Christensen Institute

Blended Learning Model Definitions | Christensen Institute | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

The definition of blended learning is a formal education program in which a student learns:

(1) at least in part through online learning, with some element of student control over time, place, path, and/or pace;

(2) at least in part in a supervised brick-and-mortar location away from home;

(3) and the modalities along each student’s learning path within a course or subject are connected to provide an integrated learning experience.

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, April 12, 12:41 PM

The focus of these scoop.it pages is networked learning. As the above definition points out, online learning is part and parcel of blended learning experiences. In some cases, the online part is of a social nature, thereby qualifying it as a form of networked learning. Apart from that, next to MOOCs blended learning is another attempt at marrying the online and the offline in learning. Although the terminology used is different, although the intentions are different (for sure if it concerns xMOOCs), there are a lot of similarities worth drawing attention to. This is particularly so since the various forms of blended learning discussed in this short scoop offer useful food for thought for those interested in furthering the evolution of MOOCs. I am thinking in particular of the à-la-carte model and the enriched-virtual model. Also, the classification is unlikely to be exhaustive and therefore provides food for the imaginative thinker.

How Google Has Changed Student Research - Edudemic

How Google Has Changed Student Research - Edudemic | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

You know how some days, you feel older than others? I always tend to feel old when I look at education trends and examine just how far technology has come since I was in graduate school (which really doesn’t feel that long ago).  Even though I was in graduate school during the late 2000′s,  many things still had not made the jump to being technology based. Many things weretech based, but some of the big stuff – like research- had only come about halfway.

While I certainly wasn’t sifting through paper records to find out what library had the books I needed for a lit review, I still had to call the library to order them (they didn’t let you request interlibrary loan online at that time), wait for the physical books to arrive, and then schlep them home to sift through them. I’m sure many of you have the same reaction to this as I do – blech. 

The handy infographic below takes a look at how Google has changed student research with a special focus on graduate students. Google is not only the most widely used search engine, but they’ve developed a lot of education specific research tools to help students out. Keep reading to learn more.
