Apple announces iTunes U content has now passed 1 billion downloads | Social Learning - MOOC - OER | Scoop.it

Apple has just announced a significant milestone for iTunes U, as content on the “iTunes for education” platform has now passed a billion downloads.

iTunes U is designed to help distribute information to learners around the world, with institutions such as schools, universities, libraries and museums able to have a single home for all their digital content.

 

“It’s inspiring to see what educators and students of all types are doing with iTunes U,” says Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. “With the incredible content offered on iTunes U, students can learn like never before―there are now iTunes U courses with more than 250,000 students enrolled in them, which is a phenomenal shift in the way we teach and learn.”

Robert Farrow's curator insight, August 1, 5:51 AM

Belle S. Wheelan, president of the commission on colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Universities, said quality control is a responsibility of the institution, regardless of medium.

“If they are the ones in whose name the course is offered, then they have the responsibility of ensuring the quality of that course,” Wheelan, whose organization accredits institutions in the South, said. “We as accreditors hold the institutions responsible, because it’s the institutions we accredit -- not Coursera.”

El término PLE (Personal Learning Environments) es usado por primera vez en 2001 por Olivier y Liber en el trabajo presentado (Lifelong learning: the need for portable personal learning environments and supporting interoperability standards) en la SSGRR-2002W International conference on Infrastructure for e-Business, e-Education, e-Science, and e-Medicine on the Internet (CETIS, 2007). El proyecto PLE fue financiado por el Programa eLearning CSAC durante el periodo agosto de 2005 a julio de 2006. Entre otros, tenía como objetivos: definir el alcance del término entorno personal de aprendizaje, proponer una lista de las necesidades que pudieran tener los usuarios para su utilización, o  identificar los requisitos técnicos del sistema. Del informe realizado por el Centre for educational technology & interoperability standars (CETIS), por encargo del Joint informations systems comité (JISC), destacamos los siguientes aspectos:
