At Stanford, scholars debate the promises, pitfalls of online learning | Online training and education - blended learning | Scoop.it

Tanner Lecturer and respondents tackle the challenges of preserving the best of higher education while venturing onto new ground.

For the first time in centuries, university administrators and intellectuals are seriously questioning the logic of how we teach and learn, and for the first time, we may actually have the technology to shift the education paradigm. The bad news, according to scholar William G. Bowen, is that there is no quick fix, though clearly technology is a large part of the solution. (...) - By R.F. MACKAYStanford Report, October 15, 2012

Think Multiscreen (vs. iPad-only) when developing an mLearning Strategy

Think Multiscreen (vs. iPad-only) when developing an mLearning Strategy | Online training and education - blended learning | Scoop.it

Today’s connected Learners interact in an ecosystem of screens. So for us in the Learning Industry, it should not be just about designing great isolated learning experiences that may only be consumed on desktops and iPads, it’s also about developing a multiscreen strategy that will make our content accessible anywhere, especially as Learners acquire more devices and begin expecting that their ‘learning’ follows them as they shift between devices.

Distance Learning and the Future of Education

Distance Learning and the Future of Education | Online training and education - blended learning | Scoop.it
Modern economies and technologies require life-long learning. Education, like health care, must advance its content and delivery systems to keep pace with emerging needs. Distance learning will be one part of our educational future.

There is a lot of discussion in higher education about rising costs and a hope that technology could be used to make education more efficient and effective. Distance learning and digital education is the latest fashion in education. It appears to be an excellent way to enable American universities to globalize especially when compared to the effort by some American universities to establish physical satellite campuses outside the United States. There is clear value in raising these issues and in incorporating new technologies in education. (...) - Steven Cohen, Huffington Post, 1/10/2012

MOOCs – The revolution has begun, says Moody’s

A new report by Moody’s Investors Service suggests that while MOOCs’ exploitation of expanded collaborative networks and technological innovation will benefit higher education in the United States as a whole, their long-term effect on the for-profit sector and smaller not-for-profit institutions could be damaging.

MOOCs – massive open online courses – have garnered considerable attention since Stanford University’s artificial intelligence course in the autumn 2011 semester attracted nearly 160,000 students. While the course’s completion rate was low (15.6%), the scale of the response excited many in the higher education community – from institutions to venture capital companies.

Indeed, the report notes that MOOCs represent a “pivotal development” in the evolution of higher education and have the potential to revolutionise the way a centuries-old industry has operated. (...)

De nombreuses initiatives visant à « révolutionner » l’apprentissage tout au long de la vie ont émergé avec le numérique. Des enseignants et universités ont mis en ligne leurs cours, les ont ouverts aux commentaires et aux échanges. Certains ont même lancé des Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC), des sessions de cours en ligne ouvertes à des milliers de participants qui partagent et alimentent le programme. Des particuliers se sont également investis dans cette transformation de l’apprentissage par le numérique en proposant des échanges entre pairs, accessibles au plus grand nombre. Petit tour d’horizon de ses initiatives intéressantes et inspirantes pour apprendre autrement, à son rythme, à sa façon. (...) - by Audrey Bardon, 17 septembre 2012, Knowtex Blog

Helping the World to Teach

Helping the World to Teach | Online training and education - blended learning | Scoop.it

In July, Research at Google ran a large open online course, Power Searching with Google, taught by search expert, Dan Russell. The course was successful, with 155,000 registered students. Through this experiment, we learned that Google technologies can help bring education to a global audience. So we packaged up the technology we used to build Power Searching and are providing it as an open source project called Course Builder. We want to make this technology available so that others can experiment with online learning. (...) - by Peter Norvig, Director of Research at Google, Google Research Blog

Coursera and MITx - sustaining or disruptive?

Coursera and MITx - sustaining or disruptive? | Online training and education - blended learning | Scoop.it

Coursera continues to make headlines as additional "top tier" universities sign up to offer courses (16 institutions and 116 courses, at latest count), and hundreds of thousands of students sign up to take those courses. MITx, on the other hand, has not gotten much coverage lately, especially since the creation of EDx. MITx is moving much more deliberately, of course, with only one course up at this point (3 more announced for the Fall of 2012), so we know much less about how MITx will actually look and feel than we do about Coursera. However, Coursera and MITx seem potentially to represent very different approaches to the expansion of online learning, and those differences may be very important in determining the ultimate impact on higher education of online learning. In this post, I will explore some of those differences as I see them, and their potential implications. (...) - by Lloyd Armstrong on his blog "Changing Higher Education", August 06, 2012

MRUniversity Launches Alternative To edX And Other MOOCs

MRUniversity Launches Alternative To edX And Other MOOCs | Online training and education - blended learning | Scoop.it

First, University of Phoenix and its peers.

Now, MOOCs. Coursera. edX. Udacity.

The newest face in online learning? MRUniversity.

Brought to life by two George Mason University professors, MRUniversity (short for Marginal Revolution University) is a new online learning platform that focuses on Economics courses, and offers them to everyone so that ability to pay for schooling is not an issue to quality economics teaching.

Additionally, the courses are broken down into five minute video segments, so that learners can set their own pace and learn without the restrictions of setting aside large chunks of time to watch the lectures. If you’re skeptical that the material can be taught in such a short time, fear not: additional videos are devoted to subjects that need elaboration. (...) - Edudemic, October 14, 2012, by Katie Lepi

There is an eminent revolution about to happen in the online education sector. Although initiatives by MIT, Harvard and other leading universities such as Coursera, Edx, Udacity are generating a lot of of buzz, I strongly believe it will be startups led by young students themselves rather than old brick-and-mortar colleges and universities directed by academicians that will be the main responsible for disrupting the way students learn.

Différents types de MOOCs

Différents types de MOOCs | Online training and education - blended learning | Scoop.it

Le terme MOOC : Massive Online Open Course, ou cours ouvert massivement multi-apprenants, a été proposé en 2008 et popularisé par quelques universités américaines l’année dernière. La première caractéristique de ces cours est qu’ils sont ouverts à tous, chacun pouvant s’inscrire à son gré. La deuxième dimension est que le nombre d’inscrits fait que les échanges entre participants (on parle aussi de pairs) sont encouragés, voire deviennent la forme primaire de l’apprentissage, ou de l’accompagnement. On assiste donc bien à un phénomène nouveau coté cours en ligne : des cours ouverts, non limités en nombre de participants (et c’est sans doute la caractéristique la plus innovante), et dont certains regroupent effectivement un grand nombre de participants. Par contre, entre le premier MOOC de 2008 (CCK08) et le premier cours proposé par le MIT dans le cadre de son initiative commune avec Harvard, l’approche est visiblement différente.
