Inside of the University the classes have become some of the most popular and the Photography BA course in which they sit is now the hardest to gain entry to (even at the maximum UK fee chargeable) with the highest achieving applicants by a significant margin and all at no additional cost to the institution.

Instructors have a new free resource to help them integrate content from TED talks into their courses. TED has teamed up with publisher John Wiley & Sons to create PC- and iPad-based content that can be used to support lessons on happiness studies and statistics, with more on the way. TED is a non-profit organization that holds events drawing experts and presenters from multiple fields to share their work and thinking in a plethora of areas. Those "talks" are recorded and freely shared on the TED Web site.
TED Studies, as the new program is named, combines recorded TED video sessions on a given topic and adds essays and activities to round out each set of programs.

The biggest different in the flipped classroom was that I was able to learn at my own pace. When watching videos at home, if I didn’t understand something my teacher said, or wasn’t able to take notes fast enough, I had the ability to pause and rewind the video, and watch it again. Also, with class time now being spent doing work and solving problems, I could get help whenever I needed it. Rather than getting stuck on a problem at home and give up when it became too difficult, my teacher was able to show me what I was doing wrong, so I could figure out the answer and move on.

"While there is some legitimate criticism of the random application of limited gamification elements in traditional educational settings, perhaps this is one possible exception to that rule. Considering a switch from traditional letter or percentage grades to badges signifying achievement could open up many possibilities for a more fine-grained tracking of student progress, address some of the criticism regarding schools not teaching concrete skills, and motivating students to learn."
Giving people access to didactic lectures by a handful of elite professors at a handful of elite institutions is not the most important educational technology in the last 200 years. Not even close. Sure, it’s good. It’s fantastic that I can have access to the lectures and resources of some of the biggest and most famous institutions.
What keeps me engaged in a class most often is the community. That’s what I’ve learned lately from MOOCs and other online learning experiences. It’s not the class or the subject matter per se, the syllabus, the curriculum, the assignments or assessments, although yes, that’s what prompts me to enroll. I stay or go because of the people.
