5 Myths About Online Higher Education Infographic - e-Learning Infographics

5 Myths About Online Higher Education Infographic - e-Learning Infographics | eLearning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
The 5 Myths About Online Higher Education Infographic offers insights into today’s distance-learning students. Discover surprising facts!
Gaby K. Slezák's insight:
The number of online college students age 18-24 doubled since 2012 (it's not only "old" online students anymore). Myth #2 implies that campus time is indeed - against the myth - important to online students. But that's based on "75% have been on campus at least once a year". Anyway, you don't necessarily need a campus to support the online students' desire for meeting people offline: there are already networks for MOOC users in place which make it easy to connect on a local level in many countries (US, UK, Germany, Spain and many more).

New EMMA project brings multilingual MOOCs to Europe

New EMMA project brings multilingual MOOCs to Europe | eLearning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Gaby K. Slezák's insight:

The project, led by 12 universities and companies in 8 European countries, will provide access to MOOCs in different languages using automatic transcription. First MOOCs featuring mutiple languages will go live in September. Interesting approach and it sure won't be an easy task judging by the quality of available automatic translators: try feeding this paragraph to Google translate and have some serious fun...). But it's a great project and I'll stay tuned.

Why Pedagogy First, Tech Second Stance is Key to the Future

Why Pedagogy First, Tech Second Stance is Key to the Future | eLearning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
When implementing and successfully sustaining a mobile learning initiative, it is imperative not to allow the device to drive instruction. Lessons, curriculum, schools and districts should never be built around technology. Everything we do in education should be built around learning. Thus, if the ultimate goal is to improve student outcomes then the role of any mobile device initiative should be to support or enhance learning.

Tech follows learning - not the other way around.
