Comparing the five major world religions

"It's perfectly human to grapple with questions, like 'Where do we come from?' and 'How do I live a life of meaning?' These existential questions are central to the five major world religions -- and that's not all that connects these faiths. John Bellaimey explains the intertwined histories and cultures of Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity and Islam."

With the number of adult students growing, many training centres and educators have now realised that adult learners are fundamentally different than their younger counterparts in many ways.

Lynda.com Online Training part of the package for UW-Stout Online Students | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Lynda.com is a constantly growing library of more than 2,000 self-paced online courses. This diverse catalog includes software training, programming lessons and even “concept” tutorials on topics such as design and photography.


Since Lynda.com is now integrated with your UW-Stout account, it can recognize you, maintain a learning transcript and make certificates available for your professional purposes.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, August 26, 11:02 AM

Online students (and teachers) go to school 'in a computer'. Gaining technology skills is part of the double loop effect of online classes. You learn the curriculum and you begin to master the communications technology that allows you to be present with your students.


We don't expect the graduate students in the E-Learning and Online Teaching Graduate Certificate to be technical wizards. We do encourage independent learning and the confident attitude that "I can learn this."  


One service we provide to students is 27/7 access to the superb video based online self-paced courses provided by Lynda.com.  This is available to all UW-Stout students who currently have an email account.  You DO NOT have to be registered in a class this semester to access Lynda.com.


Our online classes begin mid September. Now is a good time to brush up on your software skills!

Managing Your Digital Classroom with Wearable Technology (EdSurge News)

Managing Your Digital Classroom with Wearable Technology (EdSurge News) | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

On a typical day, there are three stations in my classroom: a teacher station where I conduct small group instruction, a collaborative station where students work cooperatively to complete a task, and a work station where students work independently to complete asynchronous tasks. With three distinct groups working simultaneously, one might wonder how a can teacher respond to each and every student misunderstanding.

My answer: the Pebble.

The Pebble has a sort of retro-nerd look that you'll either love or hate.  This clever blog will help any teacher on the move in a 1 to 1 classroom. Now what else can we use it for?

Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 28, 10:29 AM

Access to education is one of the great indicators of development and political stability--educators wish nothing but the best education possible for the next generation, but the experience is quite variable across the globe.  As many places have recently started school again, this article is a reminder that this practice is experienced differently around the world.

Have you ever considered letting your students listen to hardcore punk while they take their mid-term exam? Decided to do away with Power Point presentations during your lectures? Urged your students to memorize more in order to remember more? If the answer is no, you may want to rethink your notions of psychology and its place in the learning environment.

The Global status report on alcohol and health 2014 presents a comprehensive perspective on the global, regional and country consumption of alcohol, patterns of drinking, health consequences and policy responses in Member States. It represents a continuing effort by the World Health Organization (WHO) to support Member States in collecting information in order to assist them in their efforts to reduce the harmful use of alcohol, and its health and social consequences.
