Le succès grandissant des cours ouverts, massifs et à distance se confirme avec le développement de nouvelles plateformes en ligne et la poursuite d'initiatives entamées pour la plupart en 2012, année de référence en la matière dans le monde...
"I love it when I come across such educators curated lists of apps because I know since these apps are reviewed by fellow teachers then there is a high possibility that they will work for other teachers in different settings too.
For instance, the wonderful work embedded below and which has been created by the folks in St.Plunkett Oliver Primary School http://www.stoliverplunkett.qld.edu.au/Pages/default.aspx ; is a great library of apps that every teacher should have the chance to explore. It contains a set of useful apps pertaining to different categories. Most, if not all of these apps, have been already reviewed here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning before but it is much more practical to see them compiled and organized all in one page."
La formation en ligne, terme recommandé en France par la DGLFLF, ou encore : l'apprentissage en ligne (au Canada), l'e-formation ou l'e-learning, désignent l'ensemble des solutions et moyens permettant l'apprentissage par des moyens électroniques. La formation en ligne inclut ainsi des sites web éducatifs, la téléformation, l'enseignement télématique, ou encore l'e-training, notamment.
Dans tous les cas, la méthode de formation/d'éducation permet théoriquement de s'affranchir de la présence physique d'un enseignant à proximité. En revanche, le rôle du tuteur distant apparaît, avec des activités de facilitateur et de médiateur.

EN: Given the hype of national media coverage of massive open online courses (MOOCs), it is refreshing to see more recent analysis looking at important attributes such as revenue models, dropout rates, and instructional design.
LTMOOC is a collaborative course for language teachers of all levels to discuss and gain a deeper understanding of emerging trends in blended teaching and learning of world languages, including the methodology, best practices, and practical application of the blended and online classroom. The course will facilitate discussion and development of ideas in a connectivist-style MOOC, inviting all course participants to contribute.
Instreamia founders Ryan and Scott Rapp have organized this course in response to the hundreds of inquiries and requests received regarding the Instreamia adaptive learning platform and its popular flagship course SpanishMOOC, which is known as one of the first MOOCs for teaching a foreign language. Scott will share his experience teaching SpanishMOOC including its many challenges and successes from both an educational and technological perspective. LTMOOC will benefit from the wealth of insights and knowledge already contributed by thousands of SpanishMOOC participants, which include first-time language learners, ivy-league professors of languages, and polyglots who speak over a dozen languages
EN: Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are online learning events that can take place synchronously and asynchronously for months. Participants assemble to hear, see, and participate in backchannel communication during live lectures. They read the same texts at the same time, according to a calendar. Learning takes place through self-organized networks of participants, and is almost completely decentralized.
This is a 3 credit course for students with no background in Spanish to become competent in communicate through listening, speaking, reading, and writing. This open course will create and provide resources reusable under creative commons standards. Registration for the course is available immediately,
