Curate Custom Video Learning Courses with Course Hero

Curate Custom Video Learning Courses with Course Hero | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Course Hero is a platform which allows the creation and delivery of online video courses curated from the best existing published content on that topic.

 

There are already ready-made courses to access or you can submit a topic that you would like to video-curate into a course.

 

"You can learn just about anything from YouTube...if you're willing to dig through millions of videos."

 

 

From Techcrunch: "Luckily, Course Hero has done the work for you, offering coherent classes by hosting collections of the best educational YouTube videos and other content.

 

The newly launched courses section of the eduTech startup’s site now has classes in entrepreneurship, business plan development, and programming in a variety of languages.

...

By drawing from YouTube and other openly available education, Course Hero plans to set up courses for anything it, or you, can think of.

...

Each course breaks down into roughly 6 chapters of 6 concept YouTube videos, Justin.tv videos, articles, and more. Unlike Udemy‘s one-teacher-per-class approach, Course Hero courses are compiled from content by many teachers.

 

Rather than put you at the mercy of long-winded professors, Course Hero trims videos and articles down to their most important teachings.

 

Along the way you’ll answer quiz questions, take tests to complete chapters, and face a final exam to finish a course and earn proficiency badges..."

Report shows hybrid learning has same outcomes as classroom | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Another report that essentially finds no significant difference between different modes of learning when variables are ‘properly’ controlled.

 

The value of this study is that it is properly randomized and controlled with a sufficiently large sample population to produce significant results. Unfortunately though it comes up with nothing new – most experienced researchers in the field would have predicted the result.

How is blended learning classified and defined?

How is blended learning classified and defined? | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"As blended learning continues to expand across the K-12 sector, definitions are important to help people talk about the new phenomena. This white paper refines our previous work in helping to create a shared language for the emerging field so that innovators can build upon each other’s ideas, rather than talk past each other."
