eLearning and research
The research GRoup of Interaction And e-Learning (GRIAL) is a Recognised Research Group of the University of Salamanca and a Recognised Group of Excellence by the Regional Council of Castille and León. The group is formed by a large number of researchers from different fields of knowledge (see "Miembros del grupo"). Most members have a technical or a pedagogical profile, but there are also members with expertise in e-Learning project management, Humanities, Sciences, etc. The research activity of the group in these last few years has ranged from purely technical and computing projects to the development of pedagogical methodologies and models of reference in the field of online learning which have gained international recognition and awards.

The Future of Online Teaching and Learning in Higher Education: The Survey Says… (EDUCAUSE Quarterly) | EDUCAUSE

By Kyong-Jee Kim and Curtis J. Bonk
Institutions of higher education have increasingly embraced online education, and the number of students enrolled in distance programs is rapidly rising in colleges and universities throughout the United States. In response to these changes in enrollment demands, many states, institutions, and organizations have been working on strategic plans to implement online education. At the same time, misconceptions and myths related to the difficulty of teaching and learning online, technologies available to support online instruction, the support and compensation needed for high-quality instructors, and the needs of online students create challenges for such vision statements and planning documents.

In part, this confusion swells as higher education explores dozens of e-learning technologies (for example, electronic books, simulations, text messaging, podcasting, wikis, blogs), with new ones seeming to emerge each week. Such technologies confront instructors and administrators at a time of continued budget retrenchments and rethinking. Adding to this dilemma, bored students are dropping out of online classes while pleading for richer and more engaging online learning experiences.1 Given the demand for online learning, the plethora of online technologies to incorporate into teaching, the budgetary problems, and the opportunities for innovation, we argue that online learning environments are facing a "perfect e-storm," linking pedagogy, technology, and learner needs.2

Considering the extensive turbulence created by the perfect storm surrounding e-learning, it is not surprising that opinions are mixed about the benefits of online teaching and learning in higher education. As illustrated in numerous issues of the Chronicle of Higher Education during the past decade, excitement and enthusiasm for e-learning alternate with a pervasive sense of e-learning gloom, disappointment, bankruptcy and lawsuits, and myriad other contentions.3 Appropriately, the question arises as to where online learning is headed. Navigating online education requires an understanding of the current state and the future direction of online teaching and learning.

The study described here surveyed instructors and administrators in postsecondary institutions, mainly in the United States, to explore future trends of online education. In particular, the study makes predictions regarding the changing roles of online instructors, student expectations and needs related to online learning, pedagogical innovation, and projected technology use in online teaching and learning.

Why we link …

Why we link … | eLearning and research | Scoop.it
The incentives to put structured data on the Web seem to slowly seep in, but why does it make sense to link your data to other data? Why to invest time and resources to offer 5 star data? Even though the interlinking itself becomes more of a commodity these days – for example, the 24/7 platform we’re deploying in LATC is an interlinking cloud offering – the motivation for dataset publisher to set links to other datasets is, in my experience, not obvious.

I came across this article at Mindshift.  I don't know that I really agree with the predictions made by the author but it is great to see that people are thinking about new ways to teach and learn.  I'd love to hear what you think.

3. Conclusions
Social media are a source of intellectual optimism, a fact of life, and they will increasingly become a fact of
learning. The current debates on whether or not to introduce Web 2.0 technologies into higher education are useful
but ultimately worthless without experience, creativity and innovation – the desire to think of the educational
process in completely new terms. However, this does not mean that the things we have learned so far need to be
buried and forgotten. We need to remember that we are at the beginning of a new era and, inevitably, the end of
another one – this is the era of change.
