Shared online videos have become quite popular. These streamed videos are so pervasive that 69% of Internet users and 52% of adults in the United States have watched or downloaded videos online (Purcell, 2010). It was predicted that videos would represent 50% of total data transfers on the Internet by 2012 (Madden, 2007). These statistics leave little doubt as to the rising importance of shared online videos for educational purposes.

Great to see interest coming back to the use of computer games again after our recent obsession with social networks.

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 6:57 AM

Games like SimCity immerse you in a world where 10 hours can feel like 20 minutes. If we could somehow make teaching that engaging, students would be thrilled to go to school everyday. How can we effectively use games in a manner where it has a purpose yet it also allows for learner creativity and individuality? How can we tied perfomance assessments into games? How can they fit within the busy school day? Many questions still need to be answered. This is a good start on how formative assessments can be used on gaming.

Providing Feedback | Researched-Based Strategies | Focus on Effectiveness

Providing Feedback | Researched-Based Strategies | Focus on Effectiveness | mLearning_higher_education | Scoop.it

Providing the right kind of feedback to students can make a significant difference in their achievement. There are two key considerations. First, feedback that improves learning is responsive to specific aspects of student work, such as test or homework answers, and provides specific and related suggestions. There needs to be a strong link between the teacher comment and the student's answer, and it must be instructive. This kind of feedback extends the opportunity to teach by alleviating misunderstanding and reinforcing learning. Second, the feedback must be timely. If students receive feedback no more than a day after a test or homework assignment has been turned in, it will increase the window of opportunity for learning. Feedback is a research-based strategy that teachers, and students, can practice to improve their success.

The challenge is in providing timely feedback spread across 3-4 courses with 25+ students each. Nearly impossible with writing intensive programs, which is a majority of doctoral programs. Sink or swim!
