Keep this infographic in mind as you plan for your 2015 e-learning projects. I think the mobile learning is going to come to the very front of the line this next year.

In an environment where so little changed for so long, this is both exciting and challenging to teachers and faculty.

15 Tips For Facilitating Online Discussion | Edudemic

15 Tips For Facilitating Online Discussion | Edudemic | Language learning with machinima | Scoop.it

Facilitating discussions between students is one of those things that is infinitely easier when you’re teaching in a physical classroom rather than online. When the students are all in one room, discussions happen more naturally. Facilitating the same type of productive, useful discussion when teaching online is more of a challenge.

tom cockburn's curator insight, December 24, 2014 6:17 AM

Motivation and cooperative learning are good uses problems arise for people in the evaluation and assessment and that compromises the acceptance of such by potential employers etc. The difficulty is in discerning the difference between collaborative or shared learning as opposed to simple collusion in getting answers which may not entail much,if any learning,other than how to cheat and thus disadvantage genuine learners who have made an effort.Thus making use of others' research to inform your own projects is not the same as claiming others' work as your own...and that is a big selling point for systems like Turnitin and others.

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's curator insight, January 8, 2015 9:52 PM
Many teachers of today are not prepared as the choices are often made at an administrate or IT level without proper vetting of teacher involvement.
Ness Crouch's curator insight, February 15, 2016 4:25 AM

This is an interesting article that looks at what beginning teachers and already practising teachers think about how technology can be used to motivated students.

MOOC U: The Revolution Isn't Over

MOOC U: The Revolution Isn't Over | Language learning with machinima | Scoop.it
But it’s time for the primary players to assess their role in the academic ecosystem.

 

But a year later, after a series of high-profile failed experiments using MOOCs, another proclamation from the Times about the massive classes arrived in this front-page headline: "After Setbacks, Online Courses Are Rethought." In the news media, MOOCs had gone from being higher education’s savior to a bust in a little more than a year.

Machinima: How brands are making films within games

Juan Carlos Burgon's curator insight, June 17, 2013 6:21 PM

I think in this times of life videogames are openning the doors for new types of filmaking by giving them chances to start producing about new topics and types of themes that are related to life and to actual information that would be great for editing and producing films, they would be magical, or of action, drama and they will have too many kind of brilliant acts to show
