5 H5P Libraries To Use In Moodle For Adult Learners - eLearning Industry

5 H5P Libraries To Use In Moodle For Adult Learners - eLearning Industry | Scooping Knowledge Management | Scoop.it
Want to know about H5P Libraries? Check 5 H5P Libraries you can use in Moodle and, in particular, how to use them to engage adult learners.
Relatris's insight:
I love the Hot Spots! When working with visuals, it's a great possibilities to even enhance engagement and learning by letting the student click on the image for further information. 
I also like the video library that allows implementation of questions right into the video. They used it in a MOOC I attended a while ago, and it helps to keep up the attention and to reflect on what was just said.
And I love Moodle as it can be customised right to my and my customers needs!

How Well Do Employees Know Basic Tools? by Pamela S. Hogle : Learning Solutions Magazine

Employers might assume that employees who’ve been using MS Office tools for years know how to use them correctly. But
how many employees use blank lines instead of paragraph spacing—or copy and paste repeating elements in PowerPoint
because they don’t know how to use slide masters? The good news is, there is a simple, low-cost fix for this problem:
eLearning.
Relatris's insight:
Doing an e-learning course to teach employees basic skills of popular tools or software is a very good way of bringing everybody to the same level without intimidating. Moreover, advanced skills like shortcuts or macros can be thought at the same time as an advanced level. It's like watching digital natives when they operate their smartphones, teaching me stuff I did not know my phone is able to :-)

Clinical development of new drug-radiotherapy combinations : Nature Reviews Clinical Oncology : Nature Research

Clinical development of new drug-radiotherapy combinations : Nature Reviews Clinical Oncology : Nature Research | Scooping Knowledge Management | Scoop.it
In countries with the best cancer outcomes, approximately 60% of patients receive radiotherapy as part of their treatment, which is one of the most cost-effective cancer treatments. Notably, around 40% of cancer cures include the use of radiotherapy, either as a single modality or combined with other treatments. Radiotherapy can provide enormous benefit to patients with cancer. In the past decade, significant technical advances, such as image-guided radiotherapy, intensity-modulated radiotherapy, stereotactic radiotherapy, and proton therapy enable higher doses of radiotherapy to be delivered to the tumour with significantly lower doses to normal surrounding tissues. However, apart from the combination of traditional cytotoxic chemotherapy with radiotherapy, little progress has been made in identifying and defining optimal targeted therapy and radiotherapy combinations to improve the efficacy of cancer treatment. The National Cancer Research Institute Clinical and Translational Radiotherapy Research Working Group (CTRad) formed a Joint Working Group with representatives from academia, industry, patient groups and regulatory bodies to address this lack of progress and to publish recommendations for future clinical research. Herein, we highlight the Working Group's consensus recommendations to increase the number of novel drugs being successfully registered in combination with radiotherapy to improve clinical outcomes for patients with cancer.

70-20-10: Origin, Research, Purpose | Scooping Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

To Whom It Apparently Concerns,

Yes Virginia, there is research behind 70-20-10!

I am Robert W. Eichinger, PhD. I’m one of the creators, along with the research staff of the Center for Creative Leadership, of the 70-20-10 meme [the dictionary defines a meme as an “idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person”]. Note: see The Leadership Machine, Michael M. Lombardo and Robert W. Eichinger, Lominger International, Inc., Third Edition 2007, Chapter 21, Assignmentology: The Art of Assignment Management, pages 314-361.

Relatris's insight:
70% Learning from challenging assignments, 20% from others and 10% from coursework (formal), that's a golden rule of learning theory. But where does it come from? Is it proven? Bob Eichinger explains.

4 Reasons Why Microlearning is Ideal for it Security Compliance Training | Scooping Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

"Human brain’s ability to process information is limited. Small amounts of data are easier to comprehend as well as remember. Let us take the example of a post-it note or a to-do list. These are used by people as a quick reminder about their daily tasks. You never see a post-it note containing long paragraphs of information. It contains crisp data which can be easily remembered by the person."

Jonah Lehrer’s Journalistic Misdeeds at Wired.com | Scooping Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

For the past three months, Jonah Lehrer, science journalist, author of three books, and (former) New Yorker staff writer has been under siege. In mid-June, he was accused of recycling his old work and publishing it as new. Since then, a number of accounts assert that Lehrer committed the two mortal sins of journalism: fabrication and plagiarism.

Petition Urges White House to Require Public Access to Federally Financed Research - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Building off recent momentum behind their cause, a group of public-access advocates has started a petition asking the Obama administration to require that work supported by taxpayer money be accessible online. The petition, from www.Access2Research.org, went live on the White House’s We the People public-petition site late Sunday night. Organizers got the word out quickly and broadly via social media (see the Twitter hashtag #OAMonday) and with the help of like-minded groups.

By Wednesday afternoon, close to 13,000 people had signed, more than half the goal of 25,000. According to the site’s rules, if a petition gets 25,000 signatures within 30 days, it goes to the president’s chief of staff and will get a response from the White House.

Wiki founder to build open access site for UK research - The Conversation | Scooping Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

"The British government has enlisted the services of Wikipedia in a push to make all taxpayer-funded academic research from the UK freely available online – regardless of whether it is also published in a subscription-only journal.

It is the latest blow to be struck for the open access movement, a decades-old campaign that has gathered momentum in recent months with a boycott of one of the giants of academic publishing, Elsevier, by almost 11,000 researchers worldwide."

Learning Game Design: Teaching Declarative Knowledge With Serious Games - eLearning Industry

Learning Game Design: Teaching Declarative Knowledge With Serious Games - eLearning Industry | Scooping Knowledge Management | Scoop.it
Want to know how to teach declarative knowledge with serious games? Check what you need to know about effective Learning Game Design.
Relatris's insight:
In almost every discipline, you have some declarative knowledge- terms, definitions, vocabularies, taxonomies. Having some fun while learning them is definitively a good thing. Story telling may require quiet some creativity, or minimisation like "Nie Ohne Seife Waschen" (never wash without soap) to remember the cardinal points "Norden, Osten, Süden, Westen". For Trivia, you need quiet some facts to be thought. But Sorting and Matching already works for very small amounts of knowledge. Luckily, many LMS do have creative quiz options that include sorting and matching. So give your students some fun!

MOOCs and higher education: evolution or revolution? | OUPblog

MOOCs and higher education: evolution or revolution? | OUPblog | Scooping Knowledge Management | Scoop.it
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) burst into the public consciousness in 2012 after feverish press reports about elite US universities offering free courses, through the Internet, to hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. A Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) course on Circuits and Electronics that had attracted 155,000 registrations was a typical example. Pundits proclaimed a revolution in higher education and numerous universities, fearful of being left behind, joined a rush to offer MOOCs.
Relatris's insight:
I couldn't agree more. What John Daniel describes is exactly my own experience. I know people who did complete a MOOC (- I did several of them -), and they all were "older", tech-savy and curios people with a degree, eager to learn new stuff but not willing (or able) to do a whole curriculum. There may be a range of reasons for that, but important for me is to keep MOOCs in mind as a tool for continued education of higher educated people with a tight agenda - if it wasn't so costly and time-consuming to produce them.....

Open Access Movement Finds New Ally in University of California, San Francisco — The Digital Shift

Open Access Movement Finds New Ally in University of California, San Francisco — The Digital Shift | Scooping Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

The open access movement received another major boost on May 21 when the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), one of the leading public, scientific institutions in the country, adopted an open access policy.
The UCSF academic senate voted unanimously to make electronic versions of current and future scientific articles freely available to the public. This is particularly significant because, according to numbers from the university, the UCSF health campus is the country’s largest public recipient of funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), receiving 1,056 grants last year valued at $532.8 million.

Computational Chemistry Highlights | Scooping Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

I just found this free "Overlay Journal": A bunch of scientists highlight important contributions to their field, giving other scientists the possibilities to get post-reviewed and highlighted articles.

 

I got to that website through a post in "A Chemical Education" arguing that Journal Editors are important as they provide us with reviews and highlights (http://blog.tomwphillips.co.uk/2012/04/on-the-value-of-journal-editors-and-why-green-open-access-wont-work/) This led to a comment that indeed the community can do that function too, showing as an example the Computational Chemistry Highlight.
