Are Universities Afraid of Online Learning? » Online Universities

Are Universities Afraid of Online Learning? » Online Universities | Digital Learning - beyond eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
On May 17, 2012, Peter Klein, writing for the Christian Science Monitor, wrote that, "Mainline universities loudly proclaim their love of online learning — and pedagogical innovation more generally — while doing everything possible to retard it. The strategy has been to make a few easy, low-cost, conservative moves that preserve the status quo, such as putting some existing courses online, while trying to suppress the innovative outsiders like Phoenix, DeVry, TED, Kahn Academy, etc. It’s a classic example of what Clayton Christensen calls sustaining innovation — incremental changes that keep the existing market structure intact. The last thing the higher-ed establishment wants is disruptive innovation that challenges its dominant incumbent position" (CSMonitor.com).

danah boyd | apophenia » open-access is the future: boycott locked-down academic journals

danah boyd | apophenia  » open-access is the future: boycott locked-down academic journals | Digital Learning - beyond eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"Maybe I’m wrong, maybe academic publishers will lead the media industry into a new era. Maybe they’ll realize that their business model is outdated and develop new ones. Maybe they’ll change their publishing and distribution strategy so as to make open-access viable (especially given that the libraries would love to move away from physical journals and pay-per-print is viable for those who want a bound version). This would make me ecstatic and I would happily volunteer to review for any traditional publisher who decides to go open-access. But I can’t stand by and watch another generation of scholarship get locked down. It simply isn’t right."

17 Free YouTube Tools Every Teacher should Know about | Digital Learning - beyond eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"YouTube is undoubtedly the top video website online. The stats I have recently read are really amazing; 60 hours of video are uploaded every minute with over 3 billion pageviews per day. It also has thousands of channels ranging from technology to Laugh and Gags. Given the important of YouTube as a primary source of video content, Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has dedicated a whole section to reviewing educational tools and tips teachers and students can use to maximize their benefit from YouTube. In this regard, I have selected some of the popular tools I have already reviewed here and compiled them in a list that is handy for any teacher or educator to check whenever time permits."

 

KF:  Many if these tools allow you to focus student attention on specific parts of the video content, others provide ways to improve the video experience - another way of raising the level of engagement.

Flipping the Classroom Requires More Than Video

Educators experimented with flipping the classroom long before Khan started shooting video.

 

In 2004, a former hedge fund analyst began recording and posting videos of himself explaining some math techniques. He created the material to help tutor his young cousin. Rather than keeping it private, however, the analyst posted the videos to YouTube. By 2012, Salman Khan had more than 3,000 lessons online, 140 million views, and a reputation as an education guru.

Bring Your Own Device - Questions to Consider

Bring Your Own Device - Questions to Consider | Digital Learning - beyond eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

The buzz in 1-to-1 right now is about BYOD - Bring Your Own Device - and it's not a fad and it's not going away. There's a convergence of factors causing it including:


- Hardware is diverse and at price points that are more affordable


- Schools are hyper budget conscious


- The "cloud" (previously called The Internet, the Web and the Information Superhighway) is ideal for core apps which are free or inexpensive with such as Google (although be sure to use GAFE), and Zoho


- Parents are realizing that a digital device is necessary for learning


- Schools want to be sure students possess 21st Century skills

The LMS was once the undisputed center of the digital learning ecosystem. But on many campuses, the situation has changed such that the campus online learning environment might be better viewed as a continuum, with the LMS at one end and a student’s own collection of applications, tools, and websites at the other.
