The Do's and Don'ts of Synchronous Online Learning -- Campus Technology

The Do's and Don'ts of Synchronous Online Learning -- Campus Technology | TeachTech | Scoop.it
Heed these top tips for setting up a new, or tweaking an existing, online synchronous learning initiative.
Pellissippi ETS's insight:

"Creating videos, presentations, and lessons that college students access and interact with on their own time and terms is one thing, but developing learning content that requires both students and instructor to be online at the same time presents a whole different set of challenges for college professors and instructional technologists."

Desire2Learn moving to ‘predictive analytics’ with IBM

Desire2Learn moving to ‘predictive analytics’ with IBM | TeachTech | Scoop.it

This announcement caught my eye, as it suggests a move to link big data and big data analysis directly into online learning. It is just an announcement at this stage of an agreement to work together on developing predictive analytics for online learning. This seems to be a move beyond just trawling through the student information system and LMS to building predictive models of online behaviour.

Watch this space for more discussion about learning analytics. I have a number of questions about who is designing the algorithims and the questions they are intended to answer, what assumptions are driving the design, who has access to the data, what rights students and instructors will have, and how institutions plan to use analytics from online teaching. However, I need some time to do this, so expect something later next month.

Summary of Statements by Key Players in Blackboard Announcement, Including Competitors

Summary of Statements by Key Players in Blackboard Announcement, Including Competitors | TeachTech | Scoop.it

Given all the news and discussion surrounding Blackboard’s strategy change last week, I thought that it would be useful to collect the public statements from Blackboard and their competitors in one place. No analysis, no interviews, just statements. I have a feeling that this might provide a rich source of analysis 6 – 12 months from now.

Driven more by instructors and students rather than by institution. Worth watching.
