Researchers wait to see if students want transfer credits for MOOCs | Inside Higher Ed

Researchers wait to see if students want transfer credits for MOOCs | Inside Higher Ed | Open Education | Scoop.it
SUNY Empire Open Education's insight:

SUNY, whose 64 campuses make it one of the largest systems in the world, is in  the midst of an ambitious effort to enroll 100,000 new students over the next  several years as part of its Open SUNY effort.

 

SUNY could potentially allow up  to a third of the credits for certain SUNY degree programs to come from outside  institutions, including MOOCs.

How things work at Empire State could inform that effort.

 

“That will serve as a model for what we want to do with Open SUNY,” said  David Doyle, a system spokesman.

E-Curriculum... Exploring 24 Free Open Education Resources (OER) | Open Education | Scoop.it

"Everyone is talking about a digital curriculum free of  those hard copy textbooks that have been a part of schooling since the advent of the one room schoolhouse. In this series I will investigate some resources that can open up a world of digital curricula. In this second  post of the series, I’ll examine the idea of Open Education Resources."

Are you ready to move away from textbooks and use Open Education Resources (OER)? This post provides links to 24 sites that provide free resources.

Perhaps you are wondering why schools are choosing to use free curriculum. Michael Gorman provides a list of ten reasons in this post that include:

* Provides  opportunity to make learning more authentic by giving you the ability to localize learning

* Can provide differentiations and allow educator to adapt to their students’ needs

An explanation is provided for each link he provides so you get a sense of what is available, and materials are available for students from elementary school through college. Below are a few of the sites listed.

* SAS Curriculum Pathways - a resource that has been around for a number of years and continues to innovate. The website states “The products make learning more profound and efficient, not simply more entertaining.” 

* Concord Consortium - a website that provides excellent STEM resources with hundreds on interactive, research based activities.

* Vision Learning - Peer reviewed materials for learning science available in English and Spanish that emphasize science as a process (inline with the new Next Generation Science Standards)

* CK12.org - CK12 is now focused on STEM and provides a wide variety of free courses from Arithmatic to Probability to Calculus in the area of math (a total of nine math courses); Life Science, Earth Science, Physical Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Technology, Astronomy and Engineering; a few xourses are available for English and History and there is a new course in Economics. CK12 also provides support through a variety of resources including: studyHELP, FlexMath, Braingenie and I Need a Pencil (SAT prep). One of the older sites they continue to revise courses and materials to meet the needs of todays students.

Check out the complete list by clicking through to the post, and consider not only using these materials but sharing materials you have created in some of the communities provided.
