AppleTV may prove to be Google's biggest headache for years to come

AppleTV may prove to be Google's biggest headache for years to come | Misc & MOOCs! | Scoop.it

AppleTV or iTV, whatever it may be called in its forthcoming rebirth, may become Google's biggest nightmare. According to the Jessica Lessin, formerly of the Wall Street Journal, Apple is zeroing in on their broadcast plans, which offers a zero advertising option for viewers. Google currently profits from Apple's iOS through gaming and web-based advertisements. But with a controlled end-to-end experience from Apple in TV, no such advertising advantages will exist for the search engine giant.

Bigger than Pfizer, Procter & Gamble or even Boeing! You can prefer your Android smartphone or your windows laptop but  you have to respect Apple.

robyns tut's curator insight, September 28, 2013 2:27 PM

I am happy for Apple and its success, but I still think that as  much as they claim to be leading the technological world, in some instances I see that they tend to imitate Android and Samsung when they 'innovate' new features for their iPhones.

How Useful Is Twitter for Learning in Massive Communities? An Analysis of Two MOOCs

How Useful Is Twitter for Learning in Massive Communities? An Analysis of Two MOOCs | Misc & MOOCs! | Scoop.it

"... an analysis of Twitter usage surrounding a German-language MOOC that could indicate future trends in technology-enhanced learning. Our research focuses on the Twitter stream accompanying the course and ask how Twitter is used and for what purposes by the heavy twitter users, by the educators / organisers / guestspeakers in the course and if tweets from “outside” get into to the stream.."

Peer Learning and MOOCs: Using Technology to Maximize Employee Learning

Peer Learning and MOOCs: Using Technology to Maximize Employee Learning | Misc & MOOCs! | Scoop.it

"...The first MOOCs were based on a connectivist framework, where the building of personal knowledge networks was considered more important than the content learned. Then, with the birth of Coursera, MOOCs started to more closely resemble traditional classroom experiences, with lectures comprising the main learning activity. Now, the pendulum is swinging back toward more collaboration, and preliminary results from new collaborative MOOC provider NovoEd suggest that students are more likely to stick with courses that emphasize social interaction...."

Why Do Students Drop Out of MOOCs?

Why Do Students Drop Out of MOOCs? | Misc & MOOCs! | Scoop.it

"...MOOCs are a lot more popular with the media and with college administrations than they are with faculty or, more surprisingly, with credit-seeking students. Faculty opposition makes sense: MOOCs represent a direct competitor threatening to replace them in the classroom. Student hesitancy is less intuitive. Don't students want flexibility in their courses, autonomy in choosing their curriculum, and cheaper options for advanced training? Yet in most MOOCs, 90 percent of enrolled students will fail to finish the course..."

Online Learning is Just as Effective as Traditional Education, According to a New MIT Study

Online Learning is Just as Effective as Traditional Education, According to a New MIT Study | Misc & MOOCs! | Scoop.it
More than 7.1 million students are currently taking at least one online course. Despite the apparent popularity, however, educators have given the trend low marks. But a new study from MIT suggests naysayers should think otherwise. Massive open online courses are not only effective, researchers have discovered, they are as effective as what's being traditionally taught in the classroom — regardless of how prepared or in the know students are.

The pedagogy of the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC): the UK view | Siân Bayne and Jen Ross, the Higher Education Academy

The pedagogy of the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC): the UK view  | Siân Bayne and Jen Ross, the Higher Education Academy | Misc & MOOCs! | Scoop.it

The report contains four main sections:

• an overview of the current UK MOOC landscape, illustrating the rich and to date rather neglected history of innovation in open course delivery within the UK during the period preceding our engagement with the large MOOC platforms and the launch of FutureLearn;

• a literature review which addresses key areas of concern within the current published and grey literatures on MOOC pedagogy and associated contextual issues; here we outline what we see as the most important themes currently driving the MOOC pedagogy debate;

• a series of ‘snapshots’ of current UK MOOCs, with an emphasis on looking at the detail of teacher practice, and on approaching the question of MOOC pedagogy from the position of the active teacher-practitioner;

• a conclusion which brings together themes from the literature review with the ‘snapshots’ in order to outline what we consider to be the most pressing issues the UK higher education community should be addressing in relation to MOOC pedagogy.

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, March 9, 2014 12:26 PM

This is a valuable report, particularly since it doesn’t try to cover everything but focuses on pedagogical issues in particular. Also, the fact that the report limits itself to the UK situation may bother some, but the benefit again is depth. And the UK situation is contrasted with the well-known US MOOC platforms, portraying the UK MOOCs as being European in character. This is exemplified by the pan European OpenupEd platform, which exhibits such European values as equity, quality and diversity. A strong point is the literature review and the in-depth discussion of five exemplary MOOCs. Together, they show that the distinction between cMOOCs and xMOOCs is too simple, meanwhile intermediate and different kinds MOOCs have enriched the MOOC landscape.

 

The report contains a wealth of other interesting facts and views. Although it is of course a mere mark on the developmental timeline of MOOCs, anybody with an interest in their pedagogy should read it. It is time well spent.  @pbsloep

Important to remember that MOOCs are designed to give people a "taster" in a particular subject.  They are not intended to replace university degrees.

I've been asking for multiple user accounts on iOS for a while and sadly, it doesn't look like the feature is coming to iOS 7. There's a strong incentive for Apple not to add the feature in order to protect its bottom line.
