180 MOOCs to Start the New Year (Is This the Crest of the Wave?)

180 MOOCs to Start the New Year (Is This the Crest of the Wave?) | OER and e-learning | Scoop.it
If you haven’t tried a free MOOC, I’d do it sooner than later. In recent weeks, the whole MOOC project took a hit when a University of Pennsylvania study found what was becoming empirically obvious — that MOOCs generally have very low participation and completion rates, and what’s more, most of the students taking the courses are “disproportionately educated, male, [and] wealthy,” and from the United States. This study, combined with other disappointing experiments and findings, will likely make universities think twice about sinking money into creating MOOCs (they can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $50,000 to develop). It might take another 6-12 months to see the shift. But I’d hazard a guess that this January might be the peak of the free MOOC trend. Enjoy them while they last. Whatever their shortcomings, they can be quite informative, and you can’t beat the price.

Very little of this do I find this surprising.

MFaculty's curator insight, January 7, 2014 10:44 PM

The insights revealed through the previous studies serves to codify what many educators, and even more marketers knew intuitively; free always begs the question of quality. Don't hear what I'm not saying. I'm not saying ALL MOOCs are low quality, I'm merely saying that without academic rigor and effective management, even the best intentions can slide off the rails.

 

I too had noted a number of previous MOOC supporters distancing themselves from the initiatives. Was there ever an identified demand for MOOCs, or were they simply a result of benevolent thinking? Regardless, it is interesting that the 'target audience' for MOOCs are apparently the ones taking least advantage of them. Perhaps the age old marketing rendition of supply and demand has merit still has merit.

The Future Of Content Curation Tools - Part II

The Future Of Content Curation Tools - Part II | OER and e-learning | Scoop.it

This article is the second part of the excellent guide written by Robin Good and published on MasterNewMedia in these recent days.
The Part I that I curated and excerpted a summary is here: http://sco.lt/9BOLdB

Here is an excerpt of second part:
"I (Robin Good) continue my humble exploration of what I have identified as possible areas for betterment, innovation and improvement of content curation tools, by identifying and describing some of those that appear most needed.

8) Preservation
One of the official digital curator key responsibilities lays specifically in archiving and preserving anything of value that is collected, just like a museum curator does.
For these reasons professional content curation tools will have to include among their features the ability to:
a) fully photograph,
b) archive and
c) create a searchable index of any such web content, page or information resource being curated.

9) Private Collections
The need to offer “private” collections / streams that can be accessed via subscription or sold as downloadable PDF (or in other formats) will also come of time soon.

10) Full Capture Abilities
The curator needs to equipped with qualified tools that can allow him to easily clip a short text excerpt from a page, a whole web page, an image or parts of a video.
Few content curation tools excel on this front, and none does a great job of creating screenshot-based web page collections that contain full page screenshots.

11) Monetization
All these platform have an opportunity to gradually discover and identify the most valuable curators in their community and to support them by either having relevant brands sponsoring specific verticals, via sponsored stories or via paid subscriptions.

12) Content Types Begging To Be Curated
Most of the curated content today are news, images and products.
Still, there are some areas that completely lack, or offer only one or two useful and easy-to-use curation tools.
Take for example audio curation. There's no dedicated curation tool that I know of that can help me curate podcasts, audio recordings and newscasts easily.

13) Beyond News & Articles
Until now we have been used to see the work of the content curator give life to streams of news stories via a Twitter or Facebook channel.
In the future it is very likely that beyond these popular uses, you will see the work of content curators specifically contribute to the creation of valuable collections in the form of actual: books, magazines, textbooks, video playlists - programmes, shopping directories and more others.

14) Specialized Curation Tools
I expect new curation tools to diversify themselves from the crowded competition by specializing in a specific area and for a specific group of users.

Each point is analyzed with more information and external links. Read full, interesting and detailed article here:

Google Docs & Research: How-To? | OER and e-learning | Scoop.it

When students are doing research, they sometimes struggle with citing their sources or moving beyond a quick search with Google.com. The Google Docs Research Pane helps to facilitate searching for and citing sources. By going to Tools –> Research, the Research Pane pops up on the right hand side! You can search Google, images, scholar, quotes, and dictionary! By dragging and dropping certain content (e.g. images), not only will the material appear, but a footnote (in MLA, Chicago, or APA format).

Robert Schuwer's curator insight, December 16, 2013 2:48 AM

Worthwhile noticing: "Indeed, in many ways, MOOCs have become a major distraction from developing more innovative and more relevant applications of online learning for credit. MOOCs may be free to learners, but they are not free for institutions. With the average cost of just developing an xMOOC being between $50,000 – $100,000, this means that with over 1,000 MOOCs, more than $50 million to $100 million has been spent on non-credit courses that could have been spent on producing online courses for credit, leading to recognized credentials. In itself, this focus on non-formal learning might be OK, if it was tied to some clear policy objective, but we certainly haven’t seen the return on investment from MOOCs to date."

Belief Culture: "We Don't Need No Education" | OER and e-learning | Scoop.it

The line from the Pink Floyd song providing my subtitle, "We don't need no education," is followed by, "We don't need no thought-control." This equation of education and thought-control is at the heart of the anti-intellectualism supported by the belief culture of the US, which has failed the promise of universal public education for a thriving democracy.

Robin Good's insight:

 

 Docubase is a project of the MIT Open Documentary Lab that aims to create a collaborative, participatory community around a growing collection of innovative documentaries curated by experts and outsiders alike.

 

Documentaries can be searched and sorted easily in a number of ways (most recent, most viewed, alphabetical order / or as a list rather than a mosaic). The interface is slick, colorful and simple to use.

 

More than 140 documentaries are already available and a selected group of curators has put together a number of publicly available playlists designed aroound key themes connecting these clips. 

 

Playlists: http://docubase.upian.com/playlist/ 

 

The curators: http://docubase.upian.com/curator/ 

 

A fantastic resource for documentary lovers and a great example of how in an open and participatory project, curation can play a fundamental role.

 

Free to use.

Curate Browsable Web Page Collections with Nextly | OER and e-learning | Scoop.it

Browse hand-picked collections of webpages and curate your own.

 

Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Nextly is a free web app which allows you to create collections of web pages that can be easily navigated as a tour on any device. 

 

Via the integrated Add Page feature or the accompanying bookmarklet you can add just about any web page to one of your collections, as well as content coming from Twitter, Facebook or RSS feeds and other social media.

 

A unique characterizing feature of Nextly is that the content of a collection gets pre-loaded when accessed by a user, making the browsing through elements of the collection quite fast. 

 

When browsing through a Nextly collection all original web pages are reproduced as they appear on the web, and are rapidly pre-fecthed to provide a faster loading experience.

 

My comment: Potentially a valuable content curation tool to organize specific sets of articles and distribute them in a format that is effective ad easy to access. It can be used also as an effective new reader and news discovery tool.
