How Useful Is Twitter for Learning in Massive Communities? An Analysis of Two MOOCs | teach | Scoop.it

"... an analysis of Twitter usage surrounding a German-language MOOC that could indicate future trends in technology-enhanced learning. Our research focuses on the Twitter stream accompanying the course and ask how Twitter is used and for what purposes by the heavy twitter users, by the educators / organisers / guestspeakers in the course and if tweets from “outside” get into to the stream.."

Bike Tour of Italy starting from Le Marche

This coast-to-coast bike tour of Italy passes through four of Italy’s most beautiful regions: Le Marche, Umbria, Lazio and Tuscany, each known for its charming hilltop towns, lush landscapes and unique cuisines. We begin in Pesaro, a small resort town on the Adriatic Coast, just north of Ancona. We then pedal inland to Urbino, a thriving cultural center whose fairytale skyline is visible for miles. In the evening, the main piazza is often filled with townspeople, university students, artists, and musicians from around the world. From Urbino, we cycle along rivers, which have carved deep ravines through the lush mountains. We stop at the spectacular Grotte di Frasassi, Italy’s largest known caves. We then enter the gentle landscape of Umbria, which has inspired poets and painters from Dante to Raphael. The peaceful rhythm of this region envelops us in Assisi, the birthplace of St Francis, where friars stroll the narrow streets and birds cast playful shadows on the pink stone. Our relaxing and convenient base in Spello allows us to experience Assisi’s art, surrounding woods, wildflowers, and mystical spirit. [...]

We assess the current evidence regarding whether and how these goals are being achieved and at what cost, and we review expectations regarding the role of MOOCs in education over the next five years' ( Hollands, Tirthali, 2014).
