- 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
- The rationale for adopting open educational resources
- Practical guidance: Manage, Find , Use and Reuse, Release, Share, License, Track, Collaborate
- Benefits case studies: Teacher, Learner, Institution, Communitities

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.

5 tips for mentoring in a virtual world

5 tips for mentoring in a virtual world | Technology Enhanced Learning | Scoop.it
When face-to-face meetings for mentoring and coaching sessions aren’t an option, most people would turn to telephone calls, Skype, or Google Hangouts. But a mentoring session in a virtual world offers some additional functionality and some benefits not found in other platforms. For example, in addition to removing the barriers of physical distance, virtual environments can eliminate some less tangible kinds of barriers as well.

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, Ph.D.
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.
