Using Blogs and New Media in Academic Practice: Potential Roles in Research, Teaching, Learning, and Extension

Using Blogs and New Media in Academic Practice: Potential Roles in Research, Teaching, Learning, and Extension | Higher Ed Technology | Scoop.it

Compiling a referenced article for publication in a peer-reviewed journal is traditionally the most respected means of contributing to a body of knowledge. However, we argue that publication of evidence-based information via new media – especially blogging – can also be a valid form of academic scholarship." (paywall, but you can read abstract here!)

Genoni et al(2005) The use of the Internet to activate latent ties in scholarly communities

Although it's a few years old, I found this paper interesting.  It presents the results of a survey on the use of the Internet by university-based scholars to contact unknown peers. These contacts are considered as examples of the activation of “latent ties” which are said to exist within communities with associated interests. The research indicates that the Internet facilitates the activation of these ties and that the degree to which it is used for this purpose is associated with academic rank.

5 Predictions for Higher Ed Technology in 2012

5 Predictions for Higher Ed Technology in 2012 | Higher Ed Technology | Scoop.it

MIT's announcement about a credentialing program for an online class was a significant one. It comes on the heels of Stanford's successful online engineering courses this fall. Both offer informal learners the opportunity for "credit" -- or at least a form letter from a professor or program. Alongside these developments come Mozilla's Open Badges project, an alternative model for recognizing skills and mastery that comes with an open source, open technology infrastructure. Add to that, the ability now for people to create their own online portfolios, where they can demonstrate what they do, what they do -- with or without the blessing of a college diploma. What will "count" in 2012 as "higher education"?
