MOOCs, Hype, and the Precarious State of Higher Ed: Futurist Bryan Alexander | DMLcentral | Technology | Scoop.it
Does it continue to make sense to go to college when the sticker price of a college education is soaring, the amount of debt college students are taking on – even for the non-elite universities and what were formerly affordable public universities...

Interesting perspective on MOOCs

Anne-Lydie Ardiet's curator insight, June 11, 2013 5:10 AM

Question is: will it be totally free access for students and how will universities make their return on investment? Another question is : what about the courses marketed on the web to gain virality ?

I'll try it out again, Nik, and get back. Maybe I did something wrong. Thanks for your feedback.

It'll get better. These things usually do. On another note, I just made the best cup of coffee!

I'm Remy and I work at the company that invented and developed Knowble. We think it's great that so many of you appreciate Knowble and making the effort to give feedback.

To date we haven't found a proper method to make phrasal verbs work properly. We do consider adding phrasal verbs, but the sheer endless combinations of verbs, context and meaning make this a very though nut to crack. Also; Knowble is designed as a supplementary learners aid instead of an alternative language course. That's why we focus on what Knowble does best; improving vocabulary by reading news articles.

This free version of Knowble offers a rudimentary pre-test. We have developed specific versions with better pre-tests for our clients, such as publishers. These versions also include target word lists, specific resources and translations from dictionaries (instead of Google translation used in the free version). In the paid version of Knowble teachers can also view the progress of individual students.

Still, we hope that our free version of Knowble will continue to help people improve their English in a pleasant way.

Keep your feedback coming!

This is well worth reading. Some really good food for thought. Sections 4 and 6 particularly relate to technology in learning.
