This is a great article that focuses not only on the instructors' experience, but the varied experiences of four representative (somewhat anyhow) students. Covers the pros and cons of Moocs pretty well from a personal POV and shows the important of social learning networks.

Yes, Liberals Rule the Ivory Tower—But Why? | Higher Education Online vs Higher Education in the Classroom | Scoop.it
Professors lean left, but new research suggests they aren't out to indoctrinate.
Nancy L Zingrone's insight:

It's been my experience that a college education (at least mine) leads you to see your own knowledge as significantly incomplete, to question what you read, hear and understand and wonder why you are taking the view you are taking, and those habits of mind fit more closely with liberal or liberal-like political philosophies that entertain other voices and other values. One thing that characterizes folk I've know who don't have a college education is that they are less likely to believe that the "other" is not one voice, but a collection of voices all across the spectrum, and they are less likely to see similarities first (we all want love, happiness, family, meaningful work, appreciated work in our lives, we all love to play and we can all get tangled up in something negative without really knowing what happened). Continuing to educate yourself, continuing to learn, questioning your sources, all that tends towards a broader view of the world. Anyhow interesting article.

The Future of Learning, Networked Society - Ericsson

Can ICT redefine the way we learn in the Networked Society?

 

Technology has enabled us to interact, innovate and share in whole new ways. This dynamic shift in mindset is creating profound change throughout our society. The Future of Learning looks at one part of that change, the potential to redefine how we learn and educate. Watch as we talk with world renowned experts and educators about its potential to shift away from traditional methods of learning based on memorization and repetition to more holistic approaches that focus on individual students' needs and self expression.


Via Kim Flintoff
Nancy L Zingrone's insight:

There are a lot of videos on the internet that lead us into a state of treasured anticipation and then fall flat because the voices are not as knowledgable as they might be, or the ideas are not really on the forward edge of whatever it is that interests us. I had one of those flat moments recently with the PBS piece on MOOCs, terms mis-used, ideas mis-understood, not so useful.

 

But The Networked Society is one of those sublime moments when that treasured anticipation is rewarded with more and more. Watch this! It's a bit of peak into a wonderful future.

The Journal of Asynchronous Learning Networks (JALN) | The Sloan Consortium

The Journal of Asynchronous Learning Networks (JALN) | The Sloan Consortium | Higher Education Online vs Higher Education in the Classroom | Scoop.it

From the website

 

"The aim of the Journal of Asynchronous Learning Networks is to describe original work in asynchronous learning networks (ALN), including experimental results. Our mission is to provide practitioners in online education with knowledge about the very best research in online learning. Papers emphasizing results, backed by data are the norm. Occasionally, papers reviewing broad areas are published, including critical reviews of thematic areas. Papers useful to administrators are welcome. JALN is published 4 times a year, and entire issues are published from time-to-time around a single topic or disciplinary areas. Calls for papers for special issues include specific due dates, but general submissions are accepted year-round. . The Journal adheres to traditional standards of double-blind peer review, and authors are encouraged to provide quantitative data; currently JALN's acceptance rate is 25%. The original objective of the Journal was to establish ALN as a field by publishing articles from authoritative and reliable sources. The Journal is now a major resource for knowledge about online learning."

The dirty little secret of online learning: Students are bored and dropping out

The dirty little secret of online learning: Students are bored and dropping out | Higher Education Online vs Higher Education in the Classroom | 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.
Nancy L Zingrone's insight:

I was prepared to dump this one into the trash before I got to far into it because it seemed to be focused on what online education can do for the workforce (I think people flock to online courses for a lot of reasons that include but are not limited to updating/obtianing work skills). But I stuck with it and the author is making some great points, especially talking about the need for social media being used more effectively in online environments. People are better off learning together, it seems to me, and not only developing their own path through topics they are interested, but also testing and connecting until they have put together just the right personal learning network for their own learning goals.

The pay gap, whether it is just women to men, black women to black men or to white men and women, or black or ethnic men to white men, Latinas to black women, white women etc etc ... this is astonishing in this day and age. Who are these venal employers that they feel a job has a sliding scale depending on what wage they can get. Jobs should have a wage range that starts from a livable wage (so twice the legislated minimum at least) to some higher wage that speaks to education/experience in a reasonable way with age/gender/ethnic heritage and all that other stuff OUT of the equation, IMO.

-->How to design a scalable education model that incorporates online learning? Use an iterative approach for grad projects (e.g., thesis, dissertation), embed the project into the curriculum, and use on-ground sessions for networking, committee development, public speaking (e.g., pitch the prospectus, viva voce/defense/orals), and hands-on or team projects. Use iverse for virtual team projects, papers, discussion posts, and to improve access, sustainability, and reduce cost. Each of these efforts improves time to completion, praxis/application, and affordability. See Grand Canyon U for examples of this quality design (I'm a doctoral learner there).

Cato Unbound » Blog Archive » Why Online Education Works | Higher Education Online vs Higher Education in the Classroom | Scoop.it

Oxford University was founded in 1096, Cambridge in 1209. Harvard, a relative newcomer, was founded in 1636. Other than religions, few institutions appear to have maintained their existence or their relative status for as long as major universities. And few institutions, notably again other than religions, have seen so little change. Oxford in 2012 teaches students in ways remarkably similar to Oxford in 1096, seated students listening to professors in a classroom.

 

I suspect that these two facts are related; stasis in methods has led to stasis in status. And I suspect that both of these facts are about to change. Online education will change how universities teach; as a result, online education will change which universities teach.

 

Advantages of Online Education

I see three principle advantages to online education,

1) leverage, especially of the best teachers;

2) time savings;

3) individualized teaching and new technologies.
