How to pick the best MOOCs: 6 tips from a Coursera junkie

How to pick the best MOOCs: 6 tips from a Coursera junkie | REC:all | Scoop.it
Feynman Liang has finished more than 36 online classes, putting the 21-year-old in the upper ranks of MOOC veterans. Here are his tips for picking classes.
Clive Young's insight:

Liang's views on video: Some online courses offer highly produced videos with graphics and animations and artfully shot sequences, while others just stick a professor in front of a camera. But don’t dismiss a whole course just because the videos don’t seem up to par. An electrical engineering course he took on Coursera didn’t have great videos, but Liang said it was on of the best classes he’s taken online. So, what’s a better way to evaluate a class early on? Test out a class for a couple of weeks to get a sense of the professor’s personality and commitment level. Assignments and quizzes that just ask you to recall material covered in the video might indicate that the professor is doing the online thing because of a university initiative, not a real personal interest, while more thought-provoking questions and problem sets could show that the teacher is really invested, Liang said.

Students and recorded lectures: survey on current use and demands for higher education | Gorissen | Research in Learning Technology

Our results show that students use recorded lectures as a replacement for missed lectures and for study tasks, like preparing for an exam. The quality of the actual lectures appears not to influence the use of the recorded lectures. Recorded lectures for courses that only use the blackboard are viewed less often.

Paper: Williams, Birch and Hancock (2012) - The impact of online lecture recordings on student performance

Clive Young's insight:

Can online lecture recordings and physical attendance at lectures could be considered perfect substitutes? Based on the results here, the answer appears to be that they are not, highlighting the fact that lecture recordings are most beneficial when used for their original intention - as a complement to lectures.

Surprising Results from Lecture-Capture Data

Surprising Results from Lecture-Capture Data | REC:all | Scoop.it

Two distinct sets of students come to class and review the lectures online. One, as you might expect, is the very, very motivated students who want to do absolutely well, and will do everything they can. The other group is non-native speakers of English. They find they can’t do without being there in class, but they do not come out of the class understanding the lecture fully all the time, and so their ability to review the recorded lecture is critical.

Another very interesting result: If you show students, who aren’t necessarily achieving the results they’d like, that other students are increasing their achievement based on some change—in this case by rewinding the lecture, using lecture-capture—then the students who want to do that are likely to follow them.

Flip This: Bloom’s Taxonomy Should Start with Creating

Flip This: Bloom’s Taxonomy Should Start with Creating | REC:all | Scoop.it
I know this statement sounds heretical in the realms of education, but I think this is something we should rethink, especially since it is so widely taught to pre-service teachers. I agree that the taxonomy accurately classifies various types of cognitive thinking skills. It certainly identifies the different levels of complexity. But its organizing framework is dead wrong. Here’s why.
Clive Young's insight:

A development of the 'flipped classroom' idea - learning through creating.

A refelction on what has been learned through the roll-out of UC San Francisco's lecture capture system.

Clive Young's insight:

Good point by John DeAngelo:"An interesting phenomenon has been happening, particularly among those instructors who do make a point of watching their own lectures: a desire to move to the "flipped classroom." "They often come back to us and say, 'I don't want to capture my class lecture. I want to structure things outside the lecture, so that I can have students watch in advance of my lecture,'"

Why You MUST Avoid the PowerPoint Trap And Stop Shortchanging e-Learning

Yes. I can put your PowerPoint slides online. Big deal. Listen up. Getting content online is not e-learning’s greatest benefit. Consider what happens once you place content first, which is what you’re doing with your PowerPoint.

You’re saying, “Content is the most important thing.”

You’re telling learners what’s important (right and wrong) without them discovering it for themselves.

If you attended a university educator prep program, you’ve likely seen Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy. At the bottom of the pyramid, the most basic skill is remembering, built upon that is understanding, then applying, analyzing, evaluating and creating.

Interesting and insightful critique of the 'start at the bottom of the Bloom hierarchy' notion - Phillips argues that through creating we remember, understand and of course apply knowledge.
