The Importance of Teacher Insight in Design of Digital Instructional Tools

The Importance of Teacher Insight in Design of Digital Instructional Tools | eLearning and eTeaching in the Humanities | Scoop.it
Good teachers work to create personalized experiences for students that motivate them and target their specific learning needs. But teachers can’t do it alone. Digital content and tools that support personalized learning create new kinds of student data that help teachers tailor instruction specifically to students’ needs and interests, and get rapid insight into their learning progress. And as we celebrate Digital Learning Day, what better time to highlight the need for more effective digital instructional tools?

There’s no replacement for the powerful connection between teacher and student, but digital instructional tools provide teachers with valuable information and resources to meet individual needs and track student progress.  Teachers are constantly trying to analyze how their students are doing based on many data sources, and new tools that organize data well and provide actionable insights into what individual students need are becoming available.

MIT Dean Takes Leave to Start New University Without Lectures or Classrooms

MIT Dean Takes Leave to Start New University Without Lectures or Classrooms | eLearning and eTeaching in the Humanities | Scoop.it
Christine Ortiz is taking a leave from her prestigious post as a professor and dean at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to start a radical, new nonprofit university that she says will have no majors, no lectures, and no classrooms.


Many details about the new university are still undetermined, she says, but the basic idea is to answer the question, What if you could start a university from scratch for today’s needs and with today’s technology?

Her venture is not the only effort to create a new kind of college — there’s the Minerva Project, created by a tech entrepreneur in San Francisco, and MOOC providers like Udacity, started by a former Stanford University professor.

21 tips, tricks and shortcuts for making movies on your mobile

21 tips, tricks and shortcuts for making movies on your mobile | eLearning and eTeaching in the Humanities | Scoop.it

Owners of an iPhone 6S or an iPhone 6S Plus can record video footage in glorious 4K (that’s a frame size of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels), and it’s also supported on some flagship Android phones. However, it can take up a serious chunk of room — roughly 375MB per minute on your device’s internal memory. For those occasions when ultra high-definition playback isn’t important, or you’re just running out of space, dial down the resolution: on iOS, find the Photos & Camera option in Settings, and on Android open up the Settings panel in the stock Camera app.

The LMS In The Age of Learning Engagement - Grovo

The LMS In The Age of Learning Engagement - Grovo | eLearning and eTeaching in the Humanities | Scoop.it
In May 2014, Corporate Learning Network sat down with enterprise learning professional Chris Rosso for a conversation on the future of workplace learning. It was an area of considerable expertise for Rosso, who at the time led training for over 50,000 employees on one of the world’s best proprietary learning management systems. He was slated to be the keynote speaker at “NextGen LMS,” Corporate Learning Network’s upcoming expo. If anyone saw the future coming, it would have been him. But when asked what the ‘next generation’ of the LMS might actually be, Rosso balked at the question.

“For me it’s a misnomer, to be quite honest. I guess I have a big question around, is there a future for the LMS? I almost want to rephrase the question: what’s the next generation of learning technology?”

For the rest of the interview, Rosso detailed his plans to swap his existing LMS—which he had been integral in building—for a more powerful kind of technology. Something that would be able to curate content and serve as a system of record “without constraining us to a learning management system.”

Free Technology for Teachers: Students Can Compare Maps Side-by-Side in GE Teach

Free Technology for Teachers: Students Can Compare Maps Side-by-Side in GE Teach | eLearning and eTeaching in the Humanities | Scoop.it
GE Teach is a great map tool that I last featured about 18 months ago. GE Teach is developed and maintained by a high school teacher in Texas named Josh Williams. We had the chance to meet at TCEA this week and chat about GE Teach.

GE Teach has gone through a bunch of iterations over the years. It is now built on the Google Maps API. On GE Teach students can compare two maps side-by-side. Students can select from gallery of map layers to compare side-by-side in GE Teach. In addition to comparing maps students can still use the drawing and measuring tools that you would typically find in Google's My Maps tool.

Making a MOOC ‘successful’ | Technology Enhanced Learning Blog | eLearning and eTeaching in the Humanities | Scoop.it

Designing a ‘successful’ MOOC is one thing. Making a MOOC ‘successful’ is something completely different.

Much has been written by far better and more eloquent people than me (here and here and here and here and here) on what makes a successful MOOC – all about interactions, journeys, optimum length, appropriate materials, platform, etc.. But what about making a MOOC successful? To me, there is a difference.
