Why Social Media Ain't Media | eLearning, Medical Education and Other Snippets | Scoop.it
Yes, I am aware that the title of this article is not grammatically correct, but I needed to grab your attention. For too long now, social media has been treated by many as a "new form" of traditional media.

Is Social Media Becoming a Vast Wasteland? - Forbes

Is Social Media Becoming a Vast Wasteland? - Forbes | eLearning, Medical Education and Other Snippets | Scoop.it
Let’s look back a few years.  In the 1950s there was a new form of mass media. Television was young, and there was great hope for how it could be used to educate the masses and expose it to culture.

 

The Golden Age of Television came to a halt when the TV industry hit a fork in the road. One route led to quality and the other led to crap. They chose crap.

Social media is now approaching that very same fork.

Quit Wasting Time Trying to Find the Right Look for Your E-Learning Courses » The Rapid eLearning Blog | eLearning, Medical Education and Other Snippets | Scoop.it

Elearning courses are mostly visual. When you build a course you have to have the right visual look to match your content. I like to think of it as creating a visually immersive experience where you’re trying to place the learner in the same space as the content.

Essay: Do Apple's design tools make it too easy to create textbooks and courses? | Inside Higher Ed

Essay: Do Apple's design tools make it too easy to create textbooks and courses? | Inside Higher Ed | eLearning, Medical Education and Other Snippets | Scoop.it

All good points in this essay BUT ... NOT everyone has the luxury of instructional designers to help them develop elearning resources. In medical education Harden and Crosby defined the 12 roles of the teacher (http://bit.ly/zrrL5u), one of these is the resoucre developer and it's probably an area where lecturers need staff development input.
