Massart, David & Shulman, Elena - Unlocking Open Educational Resources (OERs) Interaction Data

Massart, David & Shulman, Elena - Unlocking Open Educational Resources (OERs) Interaction Data | Fred's E-Learning reads | Scoop.it

Each time a teacher or a learner interacts with an Open Educational Resource (OER), these interactions produce data.  This "interaction data" includes "artifact data" routinely captured during any online interaction by Web server logs  (e.g., users' browsers, users' IP addresses) and "social data" created during Web 2.0-style interactions with resources (e.g., tags, comments, ratings, favorites).  Interaction data can serve a number of purposes in a period of increased interest worldwide in OERs quality and uptake. First, interaction data is a valuable source of analytics about OERs and typical audience profiles.  Second, combined with metadata, interaction data can enhance searching, ranking, and recommendations of learning resources. However, obtaining this data is not always easy since OERs, in particular, are generally dispersed among different systems where the interactions between resources and their users take place. This paper describes approaches to unlocking, collecting and aggregating this interaction data.

Learning to learn could be built into online courses

Learning to learn could be built into online courses | Fred's E-Learning reads | Scoop.it

"Why do some of us learn easily and quickly, while others struggle, left behind plodding along? Part of the answer, at least in the online learning space, is that learning is a real skill in and of itself, and some people are more skilled at it than others."

Student Voice: Is Distance Learning Effective for Undergrads?

Student Voice: Is Distance Learning Effective for Undergrads? | Fred's E-Learning reads | Scoop.it
Through technology, distance learning progressed greatly from the times of postcard correspondence; but, are online courses effective for college students?

Via EDTECH@UTRGV
Frederik Truyen's insight:

"However, an unfortunate drawback to online courses is the lack of responsibility put on students." Knowledge is indeed also about ethics; blended learning, mixing in some real life contact, still holds an edge for that.

Are SPOCs a better option for online education than MOOCs?

Are SPOCs a better option for online education than MOOCs? | Fred's E-Learning reads | Scoop.it

"MOOCs created a storm in higher education , but they still didn't prove themselves. SPOCs, on the other hand, are closer to the objectives of higher education institutions. They are not a replacement of teachers; SPOCs are teachers' sidekicks. Also, they pave the way for future more successful MOOCs.
