Information Literacy Weblog: Jisc: A guide to open educational resources | Technology Enhanced Learning | Scoop.it

I think what is mainly new is structuring the content into a guide like this. Key contenet areas are:
- What are open educational resources?
- Open educational resources – the story so far
- Finding and sharing open educational resources
- Open licensing
- Approaches to releasing, using, reusing and repurposing open educational resources

- Practical guidance: Manage, Find , Use and Reuse, Release, Share, License, Track, Collaborate
- Benefits case studies: Teacher, Learner, Institution, Communitities

Bex Ferriday's insight:

Jorum, NLN and Re:Source are all great repositories for digital lesson content. Try other online repositories like Prezi, Scribd and SlideShare for presentation and document-based content. there are tonnes of other sites, but that'd be TMI.

 

And yes, it's good to share, so if using others' materials, I like to try and share my own in  return. Sadly, I still steal more than I give...

The Best PowerPoint Alternatives for Creating Great Presentations

The Best PowerPoint Alternatives for Creating Great Presentations | Technology Enhanced Learning | Scoop.it

We’ve all endured “death by PowerPoint.” It’s a painful experience for the audience and probably not all that fun for the presenter either. To help my students deliver effective presentations—free of those deadly bullet points—I have my go-to applications.

Bex Ferriday's insight:

Though, to be fair, it's not that PowerPoint is bad...it's just that it's used badly.

Visualizing Learning with Infographics as Learning Tools

Bex Ferriday's insight:

Great stuff: a dynamic presentation with built in activities to consolidate information. Aimed at compulsory education, but could be adapted easily for HE students too.

Why Online Education is Not the Answer

Why Online Education is Not the Answer | Technology Enhanced Learning | Scoop.it
While online learning has been touted as an easy solution to the access crisis in California, the state’s higher education problems are more deep-rooted and systemic.

Via Alberto Acereda, PhD
Bex Ferriday's insight:

Totally agree with this: online learning isn't THE answer, but it's AN answer for some. I've delivered a lot in the way of online content over six or more years, and such has it always been: online learners drop out a quicker and in greater numbers than face to face learners.
