As mentioned in the previous scoop, this article is another prof's response to C.Schaber's article.  Interested in seeing the different takes on the same topics.  Unlike the comments of Schaber's article, S.D.Krause took a fair and reasonable approach to explain why he teaches online courses.  

Interesting read of both articles.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, June 20, 2017 3:01 AM
It’s been more than five years since online education got a massive boost when three free online courses, all taught by Stanford professors, launched in October 2011. Each of these courses has had over 100,000 students. Soon after that, Coursera, edX, and Udacity were launched and the media started calling the courses provided by these websites “MOOCs”: Massive Open Online Courses. Since then more than 700 universities around the world have launched free online courses. By the end of 2016, around 58 million students had signed up for at least one MOOC. Many countries around the world (e.g. India, Mexico, Thailand, Italy, and more) have launched their own country-specific MOOC platform.

Abstract


This paper reports on the initial stage of a design-based research program that aims to devise student-facing social learning analytics in a postsecondary setting. In order to foster student discussion in online classes, we devised an analytics toolkit that turns discussion forum data into information for students to reflect upon. The first pilot study conducted in an online course showed both early promises and challenges with this effort. In particular, students reported usefulness of the toolkit for monitoring posting behaviors and setting participation goals. Content analysis of post content linked tool usage with students' increased attempts to solicit peer responses to their posts and increased reflection on individual participation. However, the tool was not found useful or easy to use by some students, and it did not show benefits in other aspects of online discussion, such as crafting stronger argumentation or reflecting on group processes. These findings highlight the need of social learning analytics to strive for tool simplicity, scaffold students' development in data literacy, and bring analytics and pedagogical designs into close coordination.

Most instructional designers have four categories of responsibilities:

 

1. Design instructional materials and courses, particularly for digital delivery

 

2. Manage the efforts of faculty, administration, IT, other instructional designers, and others to achieve better student learning

 

3. Train faculty to leverage technology and implement pedagogy effectively

 

4. Support faculty when they run into technical or instructional challenges
