In-the-moment, anonymous student feedback — now free for instructors.

Ralph Springett's insight:

Looks great. Will vocational training students use this? If so, instructors seem to be the key to realising benefits in terms of course improvement. How would they deal with difficult comments. 

Great looking app - but so many questions. Anyone using this?

Ralph Springett's insight:

Ouch - short courses have expanded  and this is the learner outcome. Maybe it is the difference between getting a job or not.

"Individuals who earned short-term certificates (programs that last anywhere between a few weeks and a few months) were no more likely to see higher wages or better chances of employment than those who earned no credentials at all." (Lesson 3).

Do You Have An App Strategy For Your eLearning Programs - eLearning Industry | Mobilization of Learning | Scoop.it
Smartphones have become ubiquitous and it is extremely critical for the elearning industry to have an app strategy for their curriculum.
Ralph Springett's insight:

Not convinced 'extremely critical' and 'vital' are the sorts of advice we should be dispensing or listening too. This article makes some good points, but misses the use of an app as a gateway and pathway tool. 

Apps which provide access to support, library services, study spaces and social media networks may be what some students need.

Apps can be a good idea but lets be clear about the purpose before we say it is imperative to have the technology.

Ralph Springett's insight:

I agree on most fronts. I agree we have not even started in terms of true mobile delivery. Secondly, we will not get a quantum shift because of the massive shift required. The change required in education infrastructure, and pedagogy and design is fundamental and expensive. Finally, the ones who can afford it, the ivy league for example, are not the ones who need it.

Business is more likely to lead the mobile learning age.

Waterfall Learning vs Agile Learning

Waterfall Learning vs Agile Learning | Mobilization of Learning | Scoop.it
The advent of software development caused a great demand for project management strategies and tools. At first the most famous approach to Project Management (or PM) was called Waterfall development, which was just perfect for industrial projects of big dimensions, but that was not dynamic enough for the quickly growing economy of the Internet era.
Ralph Springett's insight:

Agile development has potential to influence a number of courses even if the team driving development is small. The difference is one of keeping may balls in the air rather than running the full length of the field with the ball in hand.

Faculty’s Role in Higher Education Innovation

Faculty’s Role in Higher Education Innovation | Mobilization of Learning | Scoop.it
In fall 2014, we partnered with FTI to conduct a research study to gather data from over 4,000 U.S. higher education faculty to better understand influences on faculty's willingness to learn about new pedagogies especially courseware and other innovations,
incorporate new ideas in their work, and share new ideas regarding teaching and learning with peers and campus leaders.
Ralph Springett's insight:

Although interested and active, in my experience faculty are often hamstrung by a lack of resources and technical capability. A key element in implementation is good education technology support and great relationships between that support and the faculty.

Then we move from thinking about it to making it happen.
