SCORM vs Tin Can - Tin Can API

SCORM vs Tin Can - Tin Can API | Using Technology in Education | Scoop.it
SCORM vs The Tin Can API. What are the differences? Why should I choose Tin Can over SCORM?

Via Danielle M. Villegas
Mike Carrington's insight:

Yet another e-learning development to follow! I have always found SCORM, in its many incarnations, to be a pain to use. Hopefully this won't be true of the Tin Can API.

It's been a while since I've posted anything "hardcore" for e-learning, but I saw this on Learning Anyway's Facebook page, and thought it was definitely worth sharing. I don't know how long this site has been up, but it looks fantastic! Check it out for more information.

Danielle is correct! This site is full of terrific information about Tin Can API. I believe you need to check this out if you have issues with tracking your employees training and C.E.U's. Tin Can makes it simple by providing a management system capable of tracking ALL of your employee's learning experiences in and out side of work. Tremendous advancement in training and e-learning.

The Art of Asking Questions

The Art of Asking Questions | Using Technology in Education | Scoop.it
At one time or another, most of us have been disappointed by the caliber of the questions students ask in class, online, or in the office. Many of them are such mundane questions: “Will material from the book be on the exam?” “How long should the paper be?” “Can we use Google to find references?” “Would you repeat what you just said? I didn’t get it all down in my notes.” Rarely do they ask thoughtful questions that probe the content and stir the interest of the teacher and other students.
Mike Carrington's insight:

Not the definitive guide to classroom questioning - but it does have some ideas that might make you think before going into the classroom under-prepared.

Time to retire from online learning?

Time to retire from online learning? | Using Technology in Education | Scoop.it

And then there’s MOOCs. I can’t express adequately just how pissed off I am about MOOCs – not the concept, but all the hubris and nonsense that’s been talked and written about them. At a personal level, it was as if 45 years of work was for nothing. All the research and study I and many others had done on what makes for successful learning online were totally ignored, with truly disastrous consequences in terms of effective learning for the vast majority of participants who took MOOCs from the Ivy League universities. Having ignored online learning for nearly 20 years, Stanford, MIT and Harvard had to re-invent online learning in their own image to maintain their perceived superiority in all things higher educational.

This paragraph exactly reflects my thoughts about MOOCs. Glad to hear it coming from a leader in the online and distance learning field as this type of voice has been swamped by the unquestioning embracing of MOOCs by all and sundry!

Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's curator insight, April 22, 2014 7:17 AM

Lastly, I am concerned that the computer scientists seem to be taking over online education. Ivy League MOOCs are being driven mainly by computer scientists, not educators. Politicians are looking to computer science to automate learning in order to save money. Computer scientists have much to offer, but they need more humility and a greater willingness to work with other professionals, such as psychologists and teachers, who understand better how learning operates. This is a battle that has always existed in educational technology, but it’s one I fear the educators are losing. The result could be disastrous, but that’s a theme for a whole set of blog posts.

"concept of a ‘portfolio.’ A portfolio is a storehouse for projects, writing pieces, art, and performances. It can be used by students, teachers, and parents to document what they’re doing (either day-to-day things or through their best work or improvements they’ve made). I see portfolios as a way to hold onto and think about what you’re doing."
