Top Online Course Design Mistakes

Top Online Course Design Mistakes | web learning | Scoop.it
Although online education has been around for nearly 20 years, I still see a number of common mistakes among online course developers. Here are the top course design mistakes in online education and how to avoid them in your courses.

Too much content
When I hire someone to design an online course, I invariably get too much content. Developers will assign over 150 pages of dense, academic reading per week, along with websites and other resources. Covering all of this content would take far more time than can be expected of students, leading them to pick and choose what they think is important, not what the course developer thinks is important.Read more Top Online Course Design Mistakes ›

5 IDEAS for a pedagogy of online learning | Tony Bates

5 IDEAS for a pedagogy of online learning | Tony Bates | web learning | Scoop.it

Tony Bates:

"This report provides some intriguing suggestions for designers of blended and online learning. As the report states:

The examples of initiatives discussed ….. may be used as inspiration for course teams, departments or institutions to explore innovative practices.

 

It is clear that universities are going to change, not just because technology is at last beginning to radically shake up how we design courses, but also because the needs of learners are changing. In the end, the value of any new online pedagogy will be judged by how well it helps meets these needs. This report provides many useful ideas and examples that should help stimulate such developments."

The Data Workout: How It's Impacting Teaching and Learning (EdSurge Guides)

The Data Workout: How It's Impacting Teaching and Learning (EdSurge Guides) | web learning | Scoop.it
If you think data—in education, or any field—is cut and dry, think again. Working with data in the classroom, especially, can be either exhausting or exhilarating—depending on your fitness level. Data can be big, but also quite small. It’s often quantitative, but is increasingly qualitative. It’s predictive, but not always inclusive. It’s private, but not always protected. But one thing’s for certain: data has enormous power to impact teaching and learning.

It’s also here to stay. Which is why we put together this muscle-building guide about data and education. If these kinds of discussions push you outside of your comfort zone, rest assured you’ll find inspiration and actionable advice from the classroom. One teacher set up an online store to teach his students how to work with data. Another uses playlists to break her students’ data into trackable skills and goals. A seasoned educator shares why he now thinks of grading as a scavenger hunt. And a former therapist describes his school’s efforts to assess assess social emotional growth.

Thinking Critically through Digital Media

Thinking Critically through Digital Media | web learning | Scoop.it

Through the use of these materials I hope teachers can develop more actively and intellectually critical students who approach digital media with the ability not only to comprehend and consume information but also understand the possible bias, motivation and underlying values of those creating the information. I believe these skills and abilities are key to creating a more tolerant, open-minded and critically aware global society.

State of the MOOC 2016: A Year of Massive Landscape Change For Massive Open Online Courses

State of the MOOC 2016: A Year of Massive Landscape Change For Massive Open Online Courses | web learning | Scoop.it


"Twenty percent of massive open online courses offered by U.S. News and World Report’s Top 100 National Universities are offered by the Top 5 universities on that list. Over half (i.e., 56%) of MOOCs offered by those National Universities are offered by schools in the Top 20. Almost 90 percent (i.e., 87.6%) of all MOOCs available are offered by schools within the Top 50. Course offerings per institution drop off exponentially at a rate of -700% after those Top 50: that’s an average of 21 MOOCs per university in the Top 50 decaying to an average of 3 MOOCs per university in the bottom 50. Comparing these averages, we see a massively unequal distribution of massive open online courses toward some of the most expensive, highly valued, and heftily-endowed universities in the world.

 

"Looking at these numbers, we begin to see why few institutions have embraced MOOCs full-on. Not only do they cost more to make ($152,000 on the low-end, $244,000 on the high-end) than an average salaried professor, but they also run the possibility of crowding out colleges that are low hanging fruit for MOOCs to replace. At the worst, this means shaking the tree for low- and middle-tier universities. Professors at high-tier universities like Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and U.S. News and World Report’s Top 20 National Universities (i.e., institutions that spearheaded MOOC development) have no need to fear. Their fruit grows high enough on the tree of global higher ed marketplaces for them to be safe. It’s the small schools that may start to feel their stems being picked at: community colleges, liberal arts schools, small private colleges, and non-flagship state schools on the lower end of the rankings."

Dynamic Mathematics In Moodle With Geogebra Plugin Family | web learning | Scoop.it
I can pinpoint the moment physics became a source of fascination to me. I was in middle school when I found out the idea that rest is not the natural state of matter. Even if I did not understand all the math throughout, it made me aware that there are laws of nature. They rule us, we innovate through them, and we keep unveiling them with the help of theory and research. Today, I believe access to experimentation tools are more powerful and will have a larger impact in the acquisition of STEM skills than traditional equation or static visualization activities.

Revolutionizing education: The virtual future of learning – AcceleratEd – Medium | web learning | Scoop.it
The most significant contributing factor to the rise of virtual learning spaces is the fact that they contribute to a healthier, more productive education system. Virtual learning spaces help students learn in better ways than ever before. Digital technologies are already resulting in better literacy among young learners, enabling instantaneous classroom-quality online tutoring from anywhere, facilitating simpler engagement in classroom discussion, and making assignment submissions easier. Nowadays, students can even complete a university degree program fully online.
What’s next?
There are monumental changes on the horizon. The future of education is as thrilling as it’s ever been, and although it’s impossible to predict all that is about to happen, we can be certain of some changes.
