For its second round of MOOCs, U. of Wisconsin at Madison embraces modularity @insidehighered | Innovation, Education, Technology | Scoop.it

"Massive open online courses will return to the University of Wisconsin at Madison next year -- or something that looks like them will, anyway. Having reviewed the results from its first round of MOOCs, the institution will offer new courses that are shorter, cover fewer topics and target Wisconsinites."

OSU Libraries Offer Open Access Etextbooks to Students

OSU Libraries Offer Open Access Etextbooks to Students | Innovation, Education, Technology | Scoop.it
Oregon State University (OSU) is helping faculty produce their own open access textbooks for courses. The university press, an arm of the OSU libraries, is starting work on a series of open source e-textbooks that officials hope will ease the rising textbook costs that are a consistent cause of student complaints. To make the etextbook program work, the library and press are partnering with OSU’s Ecampus program, which administers distance and online learning programs for the college.

Robin Ashford's curator insight, April 14, 9:53 PM

"OSU library director Faye Chadwell, whose background is in collections management, said the collaboration gives libraries a new way to help students with the cost of textbooks, and one that is meaningful compared to offering books on reserve, a “drop in the bucket” solution that she said doesn’t scale effectively to meet demand. “I’m used to student groups coming in and asking if we can help with the cost of books,” Chadwell told Library Journal. “Now that we’re in a position where libraries have begun to look at the possibility of publishing services, and especially when you have a press present in the library, we can do more.”

MIT's Unique Experiment in Blended Learning Leads to the Birth of 50 Startups in 5 Days

MIT's Unique Experiment in Blended Learning Leads to the Birth of 50 Startups in 5 Days | Innovation, Education, Technology | Scoop.it

Fifty startups were launched at MIT in five days, courtesy of a unique experiment "that could reshape existing educational paradigms."

 

Nearly 55,000 individuals are enrolled in the MITx on edX massive open online course, "Entrepreneurship 101: Who is Your Customer?" Of the thousands, the school welcomed 47 to campus on August 18 to participate in a five-day bootcamp-turned-blended-learning-experiment.

 

The MITx Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp was an experiment by MIT to help students studying online via edX further their education. The event allowed the highly selective group to learn from faculty, as well as from like-minded people worldwide, who were all enrolled in the same course, yet likely would have never met face-to-face otherwise.
