Coursera: behind the scenes filming
By Ben Loveridge (Learning Environments, The University of Melbourne"

"Over the last few months, the MOOC’s team at Learning Environments have been busy preparing for the University of Melbourne’s Coursera debut in 2013. Much has has already been written about the impact of MOOC’s (Massive Online Open Courses) on higher education but little on the practical challenges of filming. Here I outline these aspects, primarily for staff of other institutions who may be planning to go down this path..."

Insights Into the Hot Trend of Social Media Content Curation

Insights Into the Hot Trend of Social Media Content Curation | Social and Collaborative Learning | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

 

"Online content curation is a hot trend as business owners and professionals realize that content is vital to add value to their customers and prospects.

 

The trend was already evident in 2011 but 2012 saw an outright explosion of the phenomenon.

 

Content curation is the art of selecting content that is appropriate and then organising and publishing it in a way that is relevant for the topic of choice.

 

Editors with the aid of journalists create and collect content then edit and then publish.
Journalism is shifting more and more from the quest for the perfect “scoop” to a more organized and reasoned activity of content curation.

 

The technology of the web and the rise of the social media networks is providing sources of content that can provide curation in ways that were not previously possible.
The content curation platform Scoop.it is an example how we can all become magazine editors and content curators without the overhead of hiring editors or journalists. Scoop.it was established in 2011 with the goal of making content curation easy and accessible to everyone...."

52 Secrets Students Should Know about Google Docs

52 Secrets Students Should Know about Google Docs | Social and Collaborative Learning | Scoop.it

I have been using Google Docs for a couple of years now and each time I discover a new way to use it in education I would say that this is the last tip I did not know but always proved wrong. There are always more and more to learn and in fact the moment you think you have learned it all is the moment you start to loose it all. This is at least what I have learnt from both " The Ultimate Guide to Google Free Tools for Teachers and Students " and " The Entire Guide to Google Search Features for Teachers and Students ".
