Time and time again I hear MOOC myth questions. The first set make the age-old category mistake of equating MOOCs with University courses. MOOCs are much bigger than this and are NOT to be equated with college ...
It’s been a little over a year since the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas launched its innovative Massive Open Online Course (or MOOC) initiative and, in that time, the program has offered a total of seven massive courses and reached 27,674 people in more than 150 countries. The Knight Center's MOOC website was visited, during this period, 349,273 times and delivered 3,055,506 pages.
Despite its young age and low-budget structure, the initiative has been a resounding success. In numerous student reviews, the Knight Center’s program has been repeatedly praised for its quality and effectiveness.
Cutting-edge skills in the use of digital tools to improve the quality of journalism have been brought to people in most countries of the world, including regions where that kind of training would not be available otherwise. And even though a small fee has been charged when participants request for a certificate of completion, all the courses were offered for free and anyone from anywhere in the world could access the courses without any payment.

According to ABC News, Pinterest is currently among the top social websites that are highly utilized in the classroom. To cope up with the increasing demand, the creators of the social page announced last month their ‘Teachers in Pinterest’ campaign, a page where teachers can collaborate together about tips and lesson plans.
The app version of the website is also critically acclaimed by many websites such as CNET.com. In fact, Verizon Wireless provided an almost 5-star rating for the application based on data usage, security, and battery usage. Read more about it atwww.verizonwireless.com.

Siempre he defendido que la formación a distancia, el eLearning y cualquiera otra modalidad educativa que evite la presencialidad, ni funciona para todo y mucho menos para todos. Es así como aquellas acciones formativas que tienen momentos presenciales periódicos, tienen posiblemente mayor audiencia que las que son totalmente a distancia.
My name is Erna and I’m an intern at Saffron Interactive. After reading our last blog post about MOOCs, I became curious and thought I’d give it a go and enrol in one of them. After browsing the catalogues of courses starting in October on Edx, Coursera, Udacity and CourseSites, I signed up for Crafting an Effective Writer: Tools of the Trade.

Yesterday, we talked a bit about digital natives and digital immigrants. I mentioned at the beginning of that post that I got into thinking about this after reading an article that discussed which countries have the most digital natives. The article was pretty interesting, and drew on information from the recent UN International Telecommunications Union (UTI) study that looked at the proportion of young people in each country that grew up with the internet.
At first, I figured that the results of this study would be pretty obvious. First world countries with large populations and higher birth rates would be at the top of the list. After all, lots of kids + money for technology = more kids using technology, right? I was really interested when the results were not quite what I thought.
If you’re interested, you can find a pdf of the entire UTI report here, but they have also created an infographic with some of the more interesting data points. Keep reading to learn more.

The “Promises” of Online Higher Education: Profits. With so much national focus on the “promises” of online higher education to expand access and to reduce costs, one truth about online higher education rarely mentioned is that it is big—Very Big—business.
Massive open online courses, or MOOCs, are the hot new trend in online education (at least in the US). I'm one week into my second MOOC through Coursera, and here are some thoughts on the experience. In general, I think ...
