Digital Literacies 101 – What MOOCs Really Teach | Inside Higher Ed

Digital Literacies 101 – What MOOCs Really Teach | Inside Higher Ed | Learning in the cloud | Scoop.it

When edX launched its first two courses in October this year they had 100,000 people registered between them. Coursera, which alone reported over a million registrants from their April 2012 launch to the following August, are offering over 100 courses this fall. As of September, they had about 680,000 registered for those. Udacity stood at nearly 740,000 registrations to date as of August 2012, with over 100,000 ‘active’ at the start of back-to-school season. And then there are the smaller, more grassroots MOOC offerings like Current/Future State of Higher Ed, which collect a few thousand people around shared topics of interest.

That’s a lot of people, all told.

 

Many, of course, won't finish their courses; the attrition rate in MOOCs is notorious. There’s no filter on the front end – people register for free and thus very literally don’t have to buy in to the program of study.

 

But the scale of those numbers may still have effects.

Christoph Meier's curator insight, March 11, 9:38 AM
Robin Good's insight:

 

Here's a valuable resource on content curation, "distilled" by the students of the DCurate MOOC lead Martin Couzins and Sam Burrough which organizes over 60 different articles, guides and tools on the topic.

 

This resources collection is presented in the form of a Pearltrees interactive map, organized into eight sections:

 

1. Why Do We Need Curators

 

2. What Is Digital Curation

 

3. Aggregation vs. Curation

 

4. It's All About Audience

 

5. How Do We Find Valuable Content

 

6. How Do You Decide What To Curate

 

7. Curation Tools

 

8. Contributions from participants

 

If you are new to content curation this is a good resource to bookmark and keep as a reference.

Using Google’s Advanced Image Search Features (4:35) | Under Ten Minutes | Learning in the cloud | Scoop.it

In an effort to stem teacher apprehension about letting students at the elementary level just “google” their image, Fred Koch created this screencast on the features of Google Advanced Image Search. In particular, this tutorial points to the importance of citing images, finding images which are ‘labeled for reuse’ and examining the SafeSearch options.

"
Mobile Learning is about self-actuated personalization.

As learning practices and technology tools change, mobile learning itself will continue to evolve. For 2013, the focus is on a variety of challenges, from how learners access content to how the idea of a “curriculum” is defined."

Posted by Jeff Hurt

 

"Most of us turn to the internet when we are looking for resources to use for a presentation, report or article. The internet holds the key to so many robust resources.

 

"Yet how many of these resources can you legally use for free? How many of them can you adapt?

 

"That’s where Open Educational Resources (OER) can help. Here’s an infographic from the Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (at the University of Texas at Austin) that can help."
