Same Time, Many Locations: Online Education Goes Back to Its Origins

Same Time, Many Locations: Online Education Goes Back to Its Origins | Learning and Teaching in an Online Environment | Scoop.it
One of the hottest tickets at the University of Texas at Austin these days is a seat in a face-to-face classroom for an introductory psychology course.

Most of the 1,500 undergraduates who take the course each semester watch the lectures online, but 24 are chosen to attend in person in the studio classroom on the two days a week that it meets.

The course’s professors, James W. Pennebaker and Samuel D. Gosling, work to make it entertaining. Mr. Pennebaker says they present "like it’s a TV show" — think The Daily Show, fake remote newscasts and all.

Sugata Mitra – the professor with his head in the cloud

Sugata Mitra – the professor with his head in the cloud | Learning and Teaching in an Online Environment | Scoop.it
A generation of children has grown up with continuous connectivity to the internet. A few years ago, nobody had a piece of plastic to which they could ask questions and have it answer back. The Greeks spoke of the oracle of Delphi. We’ve created it. People don’t talk to a machine. They talk to a huge collective of people, a kind of hive. Our generation [Mitra is 64] doesn’t see that. We just see a lot of interlinked web pages.
