Technology Industry Extends a Hand to Struggling Print Media | NYTimes.com

Technology Industry Extends a Hand to Struggling Print Media | NYTimes.com | Emerging Print Technology | Scoop.it

From classifieds to display ads to subscriptions, the digital age has broken the financial pillars of print journalism, leaving the industry struggling to stand on its own.

 

But more frequently — and with a boom last week, when Jeffrey P. Bezos, the founder of Amazon.com, bought The Washington Post — the tycoons who have led the digital revolution are giving traditional print outlets a hand.

 

Call it a sense of obligation. Or responsibility. Or maybe there is even a twinge of guilt. Helping print journalism adapt to a changed era is becoming a cause du jour among the technology elite.

 

Google, which has been criticized for profiting from news content created by others, began financing journalism fellowships for eight people this year. The founder of Craigslist, the free listing service that helped ruin newspapers’ classified advertising, helped finance a book on ethics for journalists.

 

A co-founder of Facebook, the social network many young people rely on for news, recently bought New Republic magazine, and the founder of eBay, another classified ad killer, started an online news service in Hawaii. Steven P. Jobs, the former Apple chief executive, went out of his way to advise newspapers how to adapt their products for the tablet era.

 

“So ironic,” Les Hinton, a former publisher of The Wall Street Journal, wrote in a Twitter post last week about Mr. Bezos, that The Washington Post “should be consumed by a pioneer of the industry that almost destroyed it.”

 

Technology industry leaders, who “deal in fact and code,” are supporting the press because they value it, said Merrill Brown, director of the School of Communication and Media at Montclair State University and the former editor in chief of MSNBC.com.

 

“They’re concerned about where the country is going and share a commonly held point of view that what we do is important for democracy,” said Mr. Brown, who is also a partner at the venture capital firm DFJ Frontier.

 

This union of the press and digital patrons is sometimes awkward. For starters, tech moguls seem to do their best to stay as far away as possible from the news media’s prying questions. Mr. Jobs was famously prickly around the press, while Mr. Bezos has shunned all interviews about his purchase of The Washington Post except for one — with The Washington Post.

 

Technology’s helping hand has mostly been extended to newspapers and magazines. And some tech-focused companies, like Yahoo, have long been involved in the news business, hiring their own reporters and editors, setting themselves up as direct competitors to traditional news outlets.

Measuring Engagement: Learning Analytics in Online Learning [paper by Griff Richards]

Measuring Engagement: Learning Analytics in Online Learning [paper by Griff Richards] | Emerging Print Technology | Scoop.it

If you’re interested in learning more about measuring student engagement in your Moodle course, this is a great paper/primer to start with.  The paper was written by Griff Richards of Thompson Rivers University in Canada and highlights some key findings from recent studies of Moodle and Blackboard and how the researchers went about establishing a metric for student engagement in online courses.

Get a copy of the paper here: http://goo.gl/YDEVR

 

I’ve been thinking a lot about engagement in courses at StraighterLine (which offers self-paced online college courses via Moodle) and there were some really great quotes and other papers cited that gave me a broader lit review to explore. A few of my favorite quotes:

 

"Some measures of engagement can be misleading. For example, Beer, Clark and Jones (2010) plotted the number of learning management system (LMS) page visits (“hits”) by academic achievement for several  thousand students (see Figure 2). They noted a solid correlation between the number of LMS hits and the student grade. Did this mean that students who clicked more web pages were more engaged? Perhaps, but the explanation might simply be that they had to click on the web pages to take their tests and submit their assignments, and students who completed their work were more likely to succeed. Beer et al. also noted that  students using the Blackboard LMS had much higher hits than students using Moodle LMS. Does that Measuring Engagement mean Blackboard is a more engaging LMS? No, it reflects that Moodle has a more efficient access architecture. Learning Analytics is not simply about counting hits or mapping discussions, it is about intelligent and thoughtful interpretation of data in the context of human activity."
