Times Higher Education - Open University launches British Mooc platform to rival US providers

Times Higher Education - Open University launches British Mooc platform to rival US providers | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

A UK-based platform for massive open online courses (Moocs) to rival established providers in the US has been launched by The Open University.

Futurelearn will carry courses from 12 UK institutions (see list), which will be available to students across the world free of charge.

It will follow in the footsteps of US providers including Coursera, edX and Udacity, which offer around 230 Moocs from around 40 mostly US-based institutions to more than 3 million students.

The new platform will operate as an independent company, majority owned by The Open University, although details of other investors have yet to be confirmed.

Change can be scary. If you agree, then 2010 has been a "scary" year. Along with the challenges of the economic recession, social media tools exploded onto the scene, five generations in the workforce created a whole new workforce dynamic, and talent retention and engagement concerns became everyday issues.

The flipped academic: turning higher education on its head

The flipped academic: turning higher education on its head | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
Education models are turning inside out. First came the concept of the 'flipped classroom' in schools: pupils completing course material ahead of lessons to free up time with their teachers and apply the knowledge they have just learned. Now a related philosophy is developing in higher education. Can we also flip academics – or even academia itself?

Alex Bruton, associate professor in innovation and entrepreneurship at Mount Royal University in Canada, thinks so. The 'flipped academic', as he sees it, is an academic who informs first and publishes later, seeking usefulness as well as truth in their research and striving to publish only after having had an impact on students and society.

I love the idea of the flipped academic, "publish only after having had an impact on students and society."  Our current model allows so much stuff to be published that doesn't really have any impact on students or society.  It reminds me of the idea of action research.

UmeaMan's comment, December 11, 2012 8:15 PM
I love the flipped model and I try to introduce it into Chinese K-12 settings, to help headteachers and teachers to implement it.But I found that there are a lot obstacles: such as change courages of teachers, teachers'competencies to create online videos, students' self-regulation etc. Do you have any suggestions and advices? Thanx.

Educators as Social Networked Learners

Educators as Social Networked Learners | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

"This fall, I am getting the opportunity to design and teach a graduate course for Boise State University’s Education Technology Program entitled, Social Networked Learning.  The majority of students in the program are K-12 in-service teachers who are seeking ways to enhance their teaching with integrated and emerging technologies.  I am so excited about what students are producing for this course and in terms of meeting this goal that I wanted to share information about the course, a sampling of course activities, and example student work."

 

Excellent learning design and samples of students' work shared in this post by Dr Jackie Gerstein.

Networked Student

"The Networked Student was inspired by CCK08, a Connectivism course offered by George Siemens and Stephen Downes during fall 2008. It depicts an actual project completed by Wendy Drexler's high school students. The Networked Student concept map was inspired by Alec Couros' Networked Teacher. I hope that teachers will use it to help their colleagues, parents, and students understand networked learning in the 21st century.

Anyone is free to use this video for educational purposes. You may download, translate, or use as part of another presentation. Please share."

 

This is a great illustration of applied problem based learning using the network!

Synthetic chemistry has long been used to prepare useful compounds — especially those that are hard to obtain from natural sources. But synthetic biology is coming of age as an alternative strategy. A biologist and two chemists debate the merits of their fields' synthetic prowess.

NatProdChem's curator insight, December 12, 2012 7:58 AM

Secondary metabolites are ubiquitous in bacteria, but by definition, they are thought to be nonessential. Highly toxic secondary metabolites such as patellazoles have been isolated from marine tunicates, where their exceptional potency and abundance implies a role in chemical defense, but their biological source is unknown. Here, we describe the association of the tunicate Lissoclinum patella with a symbiotic α-proteobacterium, Candidatus Endolissoclinum faulkneri, and present chemical and biological evidence that the bacterium synthesizes patellazoles. We sequenced and assembled the complete Ca. E. faulkneri genome, directly from metagenomic DNA obtained from the tunicate, where it accounted for 0.6% of sequence data. We show that the large patellazoles biosynthetic pathway is maintained, whereas the remainder of the genome is undergoing extensive streamlining to eliminate unneeded genes. The preservation of this pathway in streamlined bacteria demonstrates that secondary metabolism is an essential component of the symbiotic interaction.
