Recently Juho Kim, a Ph.D. student at MIT, Rob Rubin, the VP of Engineering at edX, and Philip J. Guo from the University of Rochester  How Video Production Affects Student Engagement: An Empirical Study of MOOC Videos at the ACM Conference on Learning at Scale (L@S).

Interesantes resultados y recomendaciones que surgen de un estudio realizado a partir del análisis de la data recogida de la observación de 6.9 millones de sesiones de videos por parte de estudiantes de cuatro cursos edX y de entrevistas con equipos de producción de dichos videos. Se midió el nivel de interés (engagement) que estos videos provocaron en los estudiantes de manera indirecta a través del tiempo en que estos permanecían observando el video. Aún cuando esta no es ni siquiera una buena medida para comprender el impacto de estos contenidos multimedia en el aprendizaje de los alumnos, el estudio brinda algunas interesantes luces sobre como deben producirse estos videos para fines educativos y conseguir al menos que los estudiantes no se aburran rápidamente con ellos.

Exploring Empathy

Exploring Empathy | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

Want to get better at empathy in order to connect with customers/prospects and create better stories?

Then you might want to listen to this discussion by a panel of experts.

Empathy, like listening, is one of the essential storytelling skills to master. Enjoy this audio file!

And thank you to fellow curator Don Hornsby for originally finding and sharing this piece.

The good thing about having several teachers is that if one of them is not very good, you only have him or her for part of the day. Also, shuffling from class to class breaks up the monotony and allows for brief jokey chats in the hallway. During class, side conversations seem to sprout when a class goes above five students. Chaos is logarithmic. One micro-class made up of one, or two, or three students, plus a sympathetic tutor, can get more done in an hour than a roomful of 25 bored, loud fidgeters plus a shouting, pleading instructor can accomplish in a week.
