Fighting Plagiarism With Technology -- Campus Technology | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
Plagiarism is rife on campus, with students lifting material from a host of online sources. While technology has made cheating much easier, can it also provide a solution?

Patricia LeClaire's comment, April 8, 2013 12:50 PM
I've enrolled in two MOOC courses - partly because the topics were relevant to my work, but also to experience a MOOC from the "inside" as both a student and an instructional designer. I was particularly interested in opportunities for interaction (student-instructor, student-student, student-content, student-technology) and collaboration.

In one course, focused on a subject area with which I'm very familiar, students formed virtual groups around mutual interests and professional objectives, developed projects which were evaluated according to clear guidelines, and the projects were made available to all enrollees.. This course also had very active student-generated discussions on focused topics. What characterized this MOOC was the flexibility provided to the students for creating multiple ways to interact and collaborate.

The second MOOC focused on topics that were highly technical and mostly how-to with little discussion of why-to. Interaction among students was considerably less, and I was unsuccessful in either forming or joining a group (virtual or F2F local) to expand my understanding of context and implementation issues. While the content was interesting ( I particularly liked the video lectures and animations), I found it a much more isolating experience and did not complete the course.

Pat, thanks for sharing those first hand experiences. Very valuable insights!
Dawne Tortorella's curator insight, April 10, 2013 8:02 PM

This blog post does discuss some reasons why students enroll in MOOCs, but doesn't really talk much about why they drop out. 

 

One big reason - FRUSTRATION.  When a learner gets stuck and can't get individualized meaningful feedback, it creates a failed learning experience. I think we discount how important those personal encounters are in helping learners.

Understanding personal learning networks: Their structure, content and the networking skills to optimally use them

Understanding personal learning networks: Their structure, content and the networking skills to optimally use them | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

Networking is a key skill in professional careers, supporting the individual’s growth and learning. However, little is known about how professionals intentionally manage the connections in their personal networks and which factors influence their decisions in connecting with others for the purpose of learning. In this article, we present a model of personal professional networking for creating a personal learning network, based on an investigation through a literature study, semi–structured interviews and a survey.

It may be ironic that it takes significant search skills to find the wealth of information about informaiton fluency packed into the 21CIF website. To open doors to content, this page will introduce you to hyperlinked content that will help you to teach students how to locate, evaluate, and ethically use digital information.
