Teaching With QR Codes

Teaching With QR Codes | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"So, what are QR Codes, you ask?  Well, you know what barcodes are,  like when you buy something at the store and the clerk scans a code to enter the item and amount into the till?  The QR (Quick Response) Code is kind of like that, except that it offers much more information.  Quite often the QR Code will give you a link to a website, or a text message, image, etc.  To read the QR Code, you need to install a QR Code Reader onto your device.  There are many available for free.  I like using i-nigma, seen below. Simply open the app, point it at a QR Code and your device will do the rest.  Try it with the code above.  It should take you back to this blog."

Alfredo Corell's insight:

Some typical dilemmas for mobile developers include:

For optimum user experience, an app should be developed to target a specific mobile platform (e.g., iOS), but for maximum portability of the content it should not.For maximum portability of content, the best technical solution is to use a Web app (hosted online), but this excludes all the best phone features (native menus, camera, GPS, other apps, etc.).For the best mLearning experience, users need to be able to work offline, but for integration with traditional eLearning systems, the information needs to sync online.

MOOC Fad is Over: Long live Synchronous Online Learning

MOOC Fad is Over: Long live Synchronous Online Learning | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Like with so many fads, MOOC's are coming under intense scrutiny. New research by MOOC Research and funded by the Gates Foundation shows mooc fad is over. (New post: The Fad of MOOC's is over: Synchronous online learning comes forward.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

Is this the begining of the end?

Is this the end of the trend?

Some universities are planning their future MOOCs while others consider them as a past and useless tool?

 

On the other hand, the title of this assay could be misleading: what about the good quality offered asynchronous online learning courses? why the reflexion is that after MOOC online education should be only "synchronous"???? On my opinion, one of the most powerful characteristics of online education is the point of 

asynchronicity.

And since I'm writing a title for the same book series on massive open online courses, I've been trying to similarly define MOOC in a way that would clarify what should be covered by that term and what shouldn't.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

"So if all of our empirical attempts to define a MOOC are ending up in contradiction or absurdity, perhaps we should embrace a definition that puts purposeful educational research and experimentation at the heart of the MOOC project and then take a look at who gets to be (or stay) in the club and who has not yet paid the entrance fee." by Jonathan Haber

Mobile learning is an exciting concept across many industries, however for future generations it will be the expectation. In fact, the young people of today have never known a world without internet, laptops, iPads and the like.

While there is still a large population who are part of the “digital divide” (i.e. people that can remember life before internet and digital technologies), the up-and-coming generation appears to have mobile learning as very much part of their psyche.

Seguramente, a estas alturas, ya conoces qué es un MOOC (si no, mira este enlace), o incluso participas en alguno. Pero es posible que, además, te hayas planteado crear tu propio curso masivo. Si es tu caso, este post es para ti.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

Observatorio MOOC propone una quizás excesivamente simple regla de 7 pasos para crear un MOOC de calidad.

 

Para realmente proponer un MOOC de calidad no tienes que elegir ninguna materia (paso 1) ni buscar un equipo de calidad (paso 2) ni crear un buen programa (paso 3). Realmente, si eres experto en ese campo... estos 3 pasos ya están dados.
