The Texas Digital Library: A Model Collaboration (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Libraries and eLearning | Scoop.it

One such example is the Texas Digital Library (TDL), a shared-access infrastructure project launched in 2005 by a group of Texas research libraries.1 A though initially intended to support the needs of the state's PhD-granting institutions, the TDL has grown to become a significant collaborative solution to emerging challenges in digital curation and scholarship over the past decade. By pooling resources and expertise, the TDL has built a shared infrastructure that lets academic libraries offer access to digital scholarship and collections and facilitate emerging modes of academic publishing. The TDL is developing additional services — including preservation, storage, and data management — to meet the needs of a wider range of institutions.

Librarian in Training: The MOOC Library Degree

Librarian in Training: The MOOC Library Degree | Libraries and eLearning | Scoop.it

I'm a fan of continuing professional education (hence the title of this blog!) and I often look to courses to fill gaps in my knowledge or give me a taste of something new. MOOCs (Massive Online Open Courses) are one way to take courses that fit around my normal work schedule and in the past I've been something of a MOOC addict. Although they do have their downsides I think they also have many benefits if both the institution and the participant are prepared to put in the commitment needed.

"The task force was charged with updating the information literacy competency standards for higher education “so that they reflect the current thinking on such things as the creation and dissemination of knowledge, the changing global higher education and learning environment, the shift from information literacy to information fluency, and the expanding definition of information literacy to include multiple literacies, e.g., transliteracy, media literacy, digital literacy, etc.”'

30 Facts About Gamification in eLearning Infographic - e-Learning Infographics

30 Facts About Gamification in eLearning Infographic - e-Learning Infographics | Libraries and eLearning | Scoop.it

Over 75% people are gamers (50% casually and 27% moderately to fairly often).

Learners recall just 10% of what they read and 20% of what they hear. If there are visuals accompanying an oral presentation, the number rises to 30%, and if they observe someone carrying out an action while explaining it, 50%. But learners remember 90% “if they do the job themselves, even if only as a simulation.

Almost 80% of the learners say that they would be more productive if their university/institution or work was more game-like.Over 60% of learners would be motivated by leader boards and increased competition between students.89% would be more engaged win an e-learning application if it had point system.

In 2012, I wrote about the San Jose State University (SJSU) School of Library & Information Science’s (SLIS) evaluation of its core courses. We’re currently putting the finishing touches on a reimagined LIBR 200 class called “Information Communities.” While colleagues reworked other core courses, I’ve partnered with Debra Hansen, one of our senior faculty and a library historian, to create an evolving, modern course that presents students with our foundations as well as an overview of information users and the social, cultural, economic, technological, and political forces that shape their information access.

Tanyam's insight:

While this sounds like a good idea, I don't really see what advantages this would bring if they cant download them to the device as well. The Scoop says it only works when students are in close proximity, so what is the difference between looking at your screen or looking at their own?  And how would I know they were looking at the slides, and not Facebook? Interested in thoughts from this group.....?

A great way to share your slides on each of the audience members' laptops or ipads. They are provided with a link to your slides and can then follow them on their own device.
