The dirty little secret of online learning: Students are bored and dropping out | Higher Education in the Future | Scoop.it
Online education has been around for a long time. But massive open online courses are finally making it respectable. Maybe even cool. Let’s not forget, though, that they are still experiments.

"So why are all these students falling asleep, virtually, in their digital classes? Mainly because the people putting education online are still thinking in terms of classrooms."

Wiley: Interactive Open Educational Resources: A Guide to Finding, Choosing, and Using What's Out There to Transform College Teaching - John D. Shank | Higher Education in the Future | Scoop.it

Sponsored by the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), this one-of-a-kind book demonstrates the best tools, resources, and techniques for discovering, selecting, and integrating interactive open educational resources (OERs) into the teaching and learning process. The author examines many of the best repositories and digital library websites for finding high quality materials, explaining in depth the best practices for effectively searching these repositories and the various methods for evaluating, selecting, and integrating the resources into the instructor’s curriculum and course assignments, as well as the institution’s learning management system.

John Shank's curator insight, January 15, 3:07 PM

I just received the author's copy from JB - nice to finally hold it in my hands. A lot of hard work went in to it, but if it helps faculty and librarians find and integrate these high quality resources into their courses it will all be worth it. JB did a great job with the cover of the book and thanks to ACRL for co-sponsering this one of a kind book.

I am not sure that all libraries will become totally digital, but it is right to say they will change. They need to as they meet new needs. The same can be said for every institutions if they want to survive. Schools and churches have to find new ways to meet people's needs.

But one thing that’s been lacking has been a consensus on what the flipped classroom actually is. "
