Can the Current Model of Higher Education Survive MOOCs and Online Learning? | Open Knowledge | Scoop.it

To survive in a time of rapidly changing technology, colleges and universities need to change their existing business models. Each higher education institution needs to develop a strategy that will take advantage of the opportunities presented by technology-enhanced learning to expand its educational mission and provide flexibility for its students.

Tales of a MOOC Dropout - Hybrid Pedagogy

Tales of a MOOC Dropout - Hybrid Pedagogy | Open Knowledge | Scoop.it

In September 2013, Hybrid Pedagogy published an e-book of graduate student essays focused on student experiences in MOOCs — from EdX, Udacity, and other xMOOCs, to improvisational MOOCs created by the students themselves using open web resources. The full collection, Learner Experiences with MOOCs and Open Online Learning, was published via GitHub. The following article from Cindy Londeore is one of the essays from that volume. You can read more about the e-book in George Veletsiano’s introduction, “How Do Learners Experience Open Online Learning?”

Open Science and the Three Cultures: Expanding Open Science to all Domains of Knowledge Creation - Springer

Open Science and the Three Cultures: Expanding Open Science to all Domains of Knowledge Creation - Springer | Open Knowledge | Scoop.it

Abstract
The Open Science movement has been most successful in transforming disciplines traditionally associated with science. Social science and humanities disciplines, especially those in the United States, are less well represented. To include all domains of knowledge, the Open Science movement must bridge these
‘three cultures’ through projects that highlight multiple lines of inquiry, research methods, and publishing practices. The movement should also consider changing its moniker to Open Knowledge in order to include academic disciplines that do not self-identify as science.

SciTechSociety: Market Capitalism and Open Access

SciTechSociety: Market Capitalism and Open Access | Open Knowledge | Scoop.it

Is it feasible to create a self-regulating market for Open Access (OA) journals where competition for money is aligned with the quest for scholarly excellence?

Many proponents of the subscription model argue that a competitive market provides the best assurance for quality. This ignores that the relationship between a strong subscription base and scholarly excellence is tenuous at best. What if we created a market that rewards journals when a university makes its most tangible commitment to scholarly excellence?

PLOS Biology: The Open Knowledge Foundation: Open Data Means Better Science

PLOS Biology: The Open Knowledge Foundation: Open Data Means Better Science | Open Knowledge | Scoop.it

Data provides the evidence for the published body of scientific knowledge, which is the foundation for all scientific progress. The more data is made openly available in a useful manner, the greater the level of transparency and reproducibility and hence the more efficient the scientific process becomes, to the benefit of society. This viewpoint is becoming mainstream among many funders, publishers, scientists, and other stakeholders in research, but barriers to achieving widespread publication of open data remain. The Open Data in Science working group at the Open Knowledge Foundation is a community that works to develop tools, applications, datasets, and guidelines to promote the open sharing of scientific data. This article focuses on the Open Knowledge Definition and the Panton Principles for Open Data in Science. We also discuss some of the tools the group has developed to facilitate the generation and use of open data and the potential uses that we hope will encourage further movement towards an open scientific knowledge commons.

The 'hype cycle’ of Moocs and other big ideas | Open Knowledge | Scoop.it

A high-powered group of marketing and communications directors visited the University of Greenwich recently. In my welcome talk, I introduced this forward-thinking bunch to a device called the “hype cycle”. Originally developed by the IT research consultancy Gartner to describe emerging technologies, I thought it would stimulate debate if I applied it to university marketing communications.

Top 5 Emerging Trends to watch out for... in Academic Publishing in 2014

Top 5 Emerging Trends to watch out for... in Academic Publishing in 2014 | Open Knowledge | Scoop.it

2013 started on a bad news with the death of  Aaron Swartz’s, however was a good year for academic publishing. Many important announcements were made, a lot of things were tried for good or for bad. Take down notice to Academia from Elsevier was one of those attempts where the biggest commercial publisher tried to safeguard it’s commercial interest. It was seen as a bad move, as Elseiver was seen as to curb the free flow of knowledge. However, when you look from another point of view, Academia.edu is also a “for profit” company and by allowing academics to upload their research papers and circulate them publicly (copyright of that was of course with Elsevier) it deliberately (or may be not so deliberately) indulged in a practice which  served it’s profits in a way.  However, towards the fag end of 2013 Elsevier also announced flipping of 7 of it’s subscription journals to Open Access from 2014.
