Opinion: The Top Eight Things You Need To Know About Online Education - Forbes

Opinion: The Top Eight Things You Need To Know About Online Education - Forbes | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
There is a variety of opinions in the media these days regarding online learning. Depending on what you read, online education can appear to be either a cure-all or cancer.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

1) Online learning is here to stay. 

2) There is no significant difference in learning outcomes.

3) Online learning is widespread.

4) There is no single form of online learning. 

5) MOOCs are not an example of high-quality online learning.

6) Online learning is well-suited to adult learners, but not necessarily traditional-aged students.

7) “Institutional” cost savings from going online are less than is often acknowledged.

8) Online learning could soon become the norm for “post-traditional” and graduate students who cannot afford the opportunity cost of traditional programs.

Instant Opinion Polls in the Classroom

Instant Opinion Polls in the Classroom | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

For a long time now I have been looking for a tool that enables instant polling in the classroom or in the lecture room. I specifically wanted something that; doesn't require registration (especially from the people I'm polling), updates very quickly, works on any platform from computers to mobile devices

It looks like I have finally found what I've been looking for and best of all it's free. The tool that I have found is Mentimeter and it does all of the above.
