MOOCs: Where are the Librarians? | HASTAC

MOOCs: Where are the Librarians? | HASTAC | EL | Scoop.it

On August 3rd, I participated in a Twitter discussion with Hybrid Pedagogy and David Stavens of Udacity. I posed a question that seemed to create a bit of a stir. “Has anyone thought of embedding librarians into MOOCs?” Mr. Stavens replied that all of Udacity’s classes had a professional teaching team supporting them. I asked if a librarian was working with the instructor as a collaborator in teaching the class. I asked if classes had access to scholarly databases for research. The lack of a direct affirmation leads me to assume the answer is no. I find it hard to believe that in all of the MOOC furor no one is considering a crucial part of education: the research component, the librarian component.

Hand-written notes or drawings can be a perfect visual supplement to any textual message which you put in your presentation.

This informative slideshow gives you tons of great examples and suggests ideas and methods how you can learn the visual note-taking.

The Wikipedia Library is an open research hub started in 2010 when Credo Reference donated 500 free research accounts to Wikipedia's most active editors. Partnerships with HighBeam, Questia, JSTOR, and the Cochrane Library followed.
Elizabeth Dill's insight:

"Wikipedia Visiting Scholars is a pilot program to help active, engaged Wikipedia editors partner with an established university library to gain access to its research resources.

This winter, the first pilot of the Visiting Scholars program will run at George Mason University’s Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, led by led by digital humanities guru Amanda French, and at the University of California at Riverside."

Fixing the Broken Textbook Market | U.S. PIRG | EL | Scoop.it
This study demonstrates that despite recent steps forward in the marketplace, high textbook costs will continue to be a problem for students unless the cost of high-priced, new editions of college textbooks comes down.
Elizabeth Dill's insight:

As the price of college textbooks continues to increase, more students are opting to skip the books even if their grades suffer, a survey conducted by the U.S. Public Interest Research Group has found. In a report released on Monday, the group said open textbooks—written by faculty members, peer-reviewed, and available free online—could help make textbooks affordable again.

Open Badges MOOC - Live session on Monday, June 23, 2-3:00 ET: The Role of Badges in Alternative Credentialing

In response to specific employer/industry requirements and the particular needs of the adult learner, interest in new approaches to credentialing is on the rise. In December, 2013, the U.S. Dept. of Education issued a notice inviting suggestions for new experiments for the Experimental Sites Initiative. The notice expressed particular interest in competency-based education programs and prior learning assessment for postsecondary education. This session will investigate various ways that open badges provide the basis for alternative credentialing programs.

"Open source, open science, open data, open access, open education, open learning -- this course provides an introduction to the important concept of openness from a variety of perspectives, including education, publishing, librarianship, economics, politics, and more, and asks you to discover what it means to you. Open Knowledge is international and multi-institutional, bringing together instructors and students from Canada, Ghana, Mexico, the United States, and the rest of the world. It will challenge you take control of your own education, to determine your own personal learning objectives, to contribute to the development of the curriculum, to reflect on your progress, to learn new digital skills, and to take a leadership role in the virtual classroom. It will also provide you with the opportunity to connect with colleagues from different countries and professions, and to better understand areas where your interests overlap and where unexpected distincts exist. We hope you’ll consider taking this journey with us."

The Case for Academics as Public Intellectuals | AAUP | EL | Scoop.it

College and university faculty routinely communicate ideas to colleagues in their field when they publish articles and present papers at conferences. However, unless they pursue interdisciplinary work, they do not often share ideas with colleagues in other fields. They engage with the general public or policy makers even less frequently, and when they do, they sometimes fail to translate their research into language that is accessible to audiences that lack familiarity with disciplinary discourses.

It’s called the Deep Web (also known as Deepnet, Invisible Web, Undernet or Hidden Web).

Are Augmented Reality Startups the next big bait for Investors? | StartupsFM

The concept of augmented reality seems like a bit of an oxymoron, given that something is either real or it’s not. Regardless, the hype and boom in AR startups is real enough, and so are the hundreds of millions of VC dollars being pumped into them. Which begs the question – Are augmented reality startups the next big bait for investors?
