6 challenges impeding technology adoption in higher education | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it
In our second look at the NMC Horizon Report: 2014 Higher Education Edition, we cover the six “significant challenges” it identifies as impeding the adoption of technology in higher education

 

1- Low digital fluency among faculty

2- Relative lack of rewards for teaching

3- Competition from new models of education (MOOCs)

4- Scaling teaching innovations

5- Expanding access

6- Keeping education relevant

Keeping education relevant is an interesting one. Education is always relevant. What we ask students to learn that might be a different story. Education and school learning are not synonymous.

Good to have a peek inside what's going on, eh?  Ready to take the plunge?

Daniel Tan's curator insight, July 4, 2014 9:42 PM

The greatest contribution of  MOOCs to education will not be the  demographic  and geograhic reach it claims to provide, but the disruption it creates on the limitations and previous beliefs of the instructivist pedagogy model. Data and learning analytics will document how the student, and more specifically,  how the brain learns.  The truism that "(s)he who speaks the most learn the most" will be based on data Collected and analyzed.  For now, we content that in teaching a class, that teacher has  learned the most. :)

What 6.9 million clicks tell us about how to fix online education

What 6.9 million clicks tell us about how to fix online education | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it

In a paper published this spring, the CSAIL team outlined some key findings on what online learners want from videos. These include:


Brevity (viewers generally tune out after six minutes)


Informality, with professors seated at a desk, not standing behind a podium


Lively visuals rather than static PowerPoint slides


Fast talkers (professors seen as the most engaging spoke at 254 words per minute)


More pauses, so viewers can soak in complex diagrams


Web-friendly lessons (existing videos broken into shorter chunks are less effective than ones crafted for online audiences)

Stephen Bright's curator insight, July 29, 2014 6:06 PM

Analysis from MIT about the features of online videos used in MOOCs that online learners prefer. Interesting analysis for MOOCs but these features could be applied to videos used in any implementation of blended learning.

 

Also shows that the slick, production theatre videos with a highly professional look may not be the ones that students prefer to watch.

What we already knew and any academic should intrinsically understand this if they are in tune with the people they teach,

What is disappointing is the continual lack of recognition of the research, design and best practices that have come from earlier work on online learning.
