Engage students through blogging : JISC | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

In an example from the University of Edinburgh’s School of Divinity, a virtual learning environment-based blogging tool has been used to enhance the dynamics of tutorials and seminars and to improve the consistency of students’ engagement with more challenging elements of the curriculum.

50 Indispensable EdTech Tools for 2012 - OnlineDegrees.org | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

Technology and education are pretty intertwined these days and nearly every teacher has a few favorite tech tools that make doing his or her job and connecting with students a little bit easier and more fun for all involved. Yet as with anything related to technology, new tools are hitting the market constantly and older ones rising to prominence, broadening their scope, or just adding new features that make them better matches for education, which can make it hard to keep up with the newest and most useful tools even for the most tech-savvy teachers. Here, we’ve compiled a list of some of the tech tools, including some that are becoming increasingly popular and widely used, that should be part of any teacher’s tech tool arsenal this year, whether for their own personal use or as educational aids in the classroom.

Boundless - The Free Textbook Replacement

Boundless - The Free Textbook Replacement | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

Boundless has launched the public beta version of its brand new site.

 

Boundless is...

- iPad-friendly and works on laptops;

- a way to turn open source information into a simple easy-to-use digital textbook;

- is free;

- generates digital resources for users based on the textbook practitioners and/or learners would normally use in their course(s).

 

Users can still use the printed textbook and use Boundless as a free digital supplement.

 

The new Boundless UI has an instant search feature built into it  and the digital textbooks have no expiration date. They’re not rentals or anything that would cost you money since it’s all open source.

Taking the Tablets - Slides - ALT-C 2012

Taking the Tablets - Slides -  ALT-C 2012 | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

James Clay's presentation on tablet computers at  ALT-C 2012

 

"The tablet computer is not a new idea, but recently has had an impact on learning and teaching across a range of institutions in the UK and elsewhere. In this session I will try to tackle the following questions.

 

What do we currently understand to be a tablet? What is the primary functionality? How are tablets being used right now for supporting, and enhancing learning and teaching? What sort of learning activities and scenarios are making best use of the tablet format? Are these devices for content consumption, content creation, interaction, or all three? So where next? Where will tablets take us? Do institutions purchase tablets for all their students? Or do we let or require students to buy and bring their own? And if the latter what does this mean for how we organise provision?..."

No such thing as a free MOOC : JISC

No such thing as a free MOOC : JISC | eLearning tools | Scoop.it
In his recent JISC blog, David Kernohan asks: ‘Why bother paying inflated fees to attend university? …What if you could get it all for free, online?’ Of course, it is tongue in cheek, because as my title above suggests, you don’t get something for nothing.

And that brings me to our recent decision in the University of Edinburgh to join our colleagues in North America and offer our own MOOCs – or massive open online courses – through the Coursera consortium.
