Lectures a dinosaur in new Deakin Uni student strategy as curriculum embraces open source 'cloud' | Open Educational Resources in Higher Education | Scoop.it

TRADITIONAL lectures look set to go by the wayside at Deakin University. As part of a new strategy students will increasingly access online, open source content from around the world, freeing up academics to focus on smaller tutorial groups delivered not just face-to-face but increasingly through social media like Facebook.

Free Cloud Storage Tools for Teachers

Free Cloud Storage Tools for Teachers | Open Educational Resources in Higher Education | Scoop.it

After posting Free tools for Teachers to Go Paperless, I got a couple of emails from some educators asking for some free cloud storage tools. Below is a list of some of the best free cloud storage tools that I deem as very important from an educational perspective. Just keep in mind that when I say free it does not necessarily mean that service is free in its entirety but that it might offer plans like a free basic plan with a limited storage and other pro ones with more storage capacity. For us in education, the free plan is generously enough and can allow you to store thousands of docs and data.
