Abstract: In massive open online courses (MOOCs), peer grading serves as a critical tool for scaling the grading of complex, open-ended assignments to courses with tens or hundreds of thousands of students.
This hypertextual concept map identifies and defines (albeit via Wikipedia) a variety of educational concepts and learning theories. Although broad in scope, familiarizing oneself with the various philosophies (and accompanying strategies) would enhance one's ability for designing and teaching a hybrid (or any) course.
"After having launched the initial version of the OER World Map on March 11th during Open Education Week, this report gives a brief overview of the development that has happened so far as well as an outlook on the next steps."
The flipped classroom provides avenues for teachers to become facilitators of learning & move away from the sage on a stage approach to teaching. The goal is to extend learning time conversation outside of class through threaded discussion.
Is peer grading an effective assessment method for open and online learning? What about in MOOCs where student feedback may be the only means of determining a pass or fail in a course? This posts examine peer grading and suggests what conditions must be present in order for peer grading to be effective...
This short piece highlights the results from the most recent Babson Survey Research Group’s annual survey of 2,000 academic leaders as it pertains to MOOC's. In less than 3 years, opinions regarding MOOC's have diminished, particularly in terms of their ability to generate money or reduce costs for institutions.
From a faculty perspective, such concerns do not drive the desire to offer MOOC's. I am curious if the same can be said of hybrid courses which, from an institution's perspective, have initially be seen as being able to reduce costs given that time spent in the physical classroom is lessened. Will the same fate befall hybrid learning if there is little cost advantage?
A recent look at what Los Angeles is paying for students' iPads in its 1:1 program found that the cost far exceeds what other nearby districts are paying for programs offering iPads, Chromebooks or other laptops.
