JOLT - Journal of Online Learning and Teaching: Instructor-Made Videos as a Learner Scaffolding Too

Abstract

Instructors have frequently found that some content, such as mathematical formulae, chemistry laboratory experiments, and business practices, are unusually difficult for students to comprehend through text-centered approaches, and that this is especially so for online students. In response, instructor-made videos (IMVs) of three to 10 minutes in length on problematic topics or subject matter areas were produced for business, chemistry, and mathematics courses. The IMVs were intended to scaffold student learning. Initial findings revealed that multimodal IMVs involving the demonstration, illustration, and presentation of key terms, knowledge, skills, and resources can help students understand important procedures, structures, or mechanisms in previously problematic content. Simply stated, IMVs can have a positive impact on student learning.

This will inevitably prove to be useful in school education too! Thanks Dennis T Oconnor.

Turnitin - What's Wrong with Wikipedia?

Educators are well aware of the shortcomings of relying on crowd-sourced content for authoritative information, yet the fact that Wikipedia continues to reign supreme as a top match in Turnitin suggests that students don't see things the same way. In short, what constitutes "research" for students today has come to mean "Googling."

Allan Shaw's insight:

Gaining access to turnitin's resources is a little clunky but worth it. The webinar is 30 minutes long and worth the time. The related SEER resource is also good.
