The Most Important Open Course Materials Online » Online College.org

The Most Important Open Course Materials Online » Online College.org | InnovativeClassrooms | Scoop.it

If you are looking for a list of locations to locate open course materials check out this post. After discussing Massive Online Open Course (as in MOOC) they post turns to Top Universities and Program - sharing some of the leading platforms today as well as partnerships with other universities and colleges.

It then goes on to share sources for open content:

* Libraries and Archives

* Databases and Search Engines

* Podcasts and Lectures

* Subscription Services 

Chances are you may find a link or two (or more) to some open course materials you have not seen in the past.

Unfortunately (and not addressed in this post) a number of sites have posted that Flat World Knowledge will not be offering free textbooks beginning in January 2013. They were one of the first sites to offer open education resources. It appears that venture capital has come into play and may be a reason for this shift.

Best Practices in Online Teaching for Student Engagement | Teaching and Learning Initiative

Best Practices in Online Teaching for Student Engagement | Teaching and Learning Initiative | InnovativeClassrooms | Scoop.it
Overview
Many theorists predict that online education will gradually surpass traditional classrooms in the role of educating students in higher education....

 

The growing trend toward online education is self-evident through the increasing popularity of online universities such as University of Phoenix, Kaplan University, Strayer University and many others. Economic trends have forced more and more disenfranchised individuals out of the workforce and into a situation of needing to achieve a higher education to improve their chances for employability; many of the students in these online colleges and universities are students over 25, with families, and some with full- or part-time jobs.

How the Brain Learns from Mistakes - Dana Foundation

"Imagine renting a car in the United Kingdom. Though you may be an experienced driver on American soil, making the switch to the “wrong” side of the road can be a bit of a challenge. You have to remain vigilant and pay close attention to the new rules, as well as inhibit your automatic tendency to want to drive on the right. Chances are, you will also make a few mistakes at first or as you grow tired.Common wisdom holds that we learn best from our mistakes. But researchers at Michigan State University have published a new study that suggests something more is needed: We must be conscious of our mistakes to reap the benefits of improved performance."

Classroom Habitudes Lesson: Curiosity – The Right Question | Angela Maiers, Speaker, Educator, Writer | InnovativeClassrooms | Scoop.it

Every week, I have the opportunity to engage in amazing conversations with students. Each time, I walk away thinking about how truly smart kids are. I am blown away by their thoughtfulness, insight, and potential. In this weeks lesson with first graders we talked about power of curiosity, and more specifically the power we hold as learners when we know how to ask the right question. .
