Is it Possible to Go from MOOC to Community? Some Guidelines in the Making | Hybrid Pedagogy Reading List | Scoop.it

A first draft of “Community Rules and Principles for Collaborative Online Learning” written by the Teaching Assistants and Community TAs to reflect some guiding principles, goals, methods, strategies, and rules for a massive online learning.  We invite members of the Coursera MOOC on “The History and Future of (Mostly) Higher Education” to comment, edit, and add to the document in order to help make this not just a one-direction online course but rather a multi-direction conversation in an active, respectful community of learners.

Massive open online courses, or MOOCs, are the latest effort to harness information technology for higher education. While they are still in a nascent stage of development, many in academe are enthusiastic about their potential to be an inexpensive way of delivering an education to vast audiences.

Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2013: Standards

Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2013: Standards | Hybrid Pedagogy Reading List | Scoop.it

The “edit history” and “talk” pages of Wikipedia entries can be pretty interesting, particularly when it comes to controversial topics. The entry for the “Common Core State Standards Initiative” is a great example of this. The Common Core isn’t new (the standards were released in 2010); nor is the entry (it was created in 2010 as well). But this year, there’s been a vast uptick in the number of changes to that entry, and discussion about its content and tone. 26 edits in 2010. 65 in 2011. 40 in 2012. 127 up through November of this year.

Where are the student voices in the open education discourse? | Hybrid Pedagogy Reading List | Scoop.it

In the rampant discussion around MOOCs and open education in general, the voices of learners are noticeably missing. Considering that many open learning platforms (notably cMOOCs) rely on student contributions, this silence is surprising.

Creating Simple, No-Frills Portfolios in Google Docs | Keep Learning

Creating Simple, No-Frills Portfolios in Google Docs | Keep Learning | Hybrid Pedagogy Reading List | Scoop.it

With the end of the semester approaching, many teachers are focusing on ways to assess student work. For classes with multiple projects, portfolios help consolidate assignments into a neat and cohesive package that can be treated as a single product of a semester (or year, or institutional career). Web-based portfolio solutions include LMS-integrated setups, third-party products, generic website-creation tools, and even homegrown solutions developed by institutions. Each has features that allow students to collect, store, assess, and publish their work, but each also has a degree of complexity or a strong learning curve.

The Rice Process's curator insight, December 4, 2013 5:53 PM

Education is not exempt from the technological advancements that are changing the ways we interact with students and manage their educational experiences. 

 

This next generation of data management does present privacy and liability concerns.  I am confident that laws and regulations will catch up and provide necessary protections.  Acknowledging these initiatives offer the potential to revolutionize how we educate, we must also acknowledge that sharing mega amounts of student data carries tremendous risks and the ramifications are not yet known.

Mapping Coursera's Global Footprint | Inside Higher Ed

Mapping Coursera's Global Footprint | Inside Higher Ed | Hybrid Pedagogy Reading List | Scoop.it

Over the last year I've been stuck by how most debates about MOOCs, and MOOC platform providers, are remarkably national in orientation. In the US, for example, a surprising number of politicians and select 'disruptive innovation' consultants have framed MOOCs as a vehicle to help redress the fiscal challenges facing public higher education. This (the MOOC as fiscal challenge solution) is a mug's game, though, as anyone involved in developing and running online courses (as I am for both regular credit classes and a MOOC) will tell you for they are resource intensive to both develop and run well. MOOCs are great for some things, and worse for others, but they are not going to save universities money by functioning as a silver bullet for the legacy impacts of austerity.

Rachel Cheeseman's curator insight, November 25, 2013 12:00 PM

MOOCs allow for a truly international classroom, but discussions of MOOCs unnecessarily localize their potential, which can skew the perception of their impact and relevance.

Bad for Badging: Achievement in Writing Courses | Teaching, Writing, Technology | Chris Friend | Hybrid Pedagogy Reading List | Scoop.it
There’s a badge for people who avoid badges. It was created, somewhat as a joke, by Kelvin Thompson, Associate Director of the Center for Distributed Learning at the University of Central Florida. He created the badge in response to a Twitter conversation from skeptics of the current badging fad. Count me among that group’s supporters. I’ll go a step further and say I think the badging movement is antithetical to effective writing instruction.
