University President – OPENBLOCKpleaseCLOSEBLOCK Tear Down These Silos
onlinelearninginsights, online learning insights
"It’s official: Higher education is shrinking, for the first time in at least 15 years" (Doug Lederman, 2012). And so it begins – the prediction that the education bubble will burst is showing its first sign of deflating. I attended … Continue reading → [Link] Wed, 17 Oct 2012 03:23:50 +0000 [Comment]

Week 2: Pedagogy notes
Scott, Notes from #CFHE12
I have just finished reading The Blended Learning Toolkit: Improving Student Performance and Retention which starts out with some stats about online, Face-2-Face and blended. It does a good job of highlighting some work at UCF about a blended toolkit ("Blended" is just the gray space between fully F2F and Fully-Online). But sadly this is still talking about the same pedagogy (teach to test). When will the conversation stop evolving from a 1400th&a... [Link] 2012-10-16T10:37:00.000-07:00 [Comment]

Marc Lentini, Malapert on scriptogr.am
One of my side goals for taking an online class (MOOC or otherwise) is to force myself to find an effective workflow for online reading. I've never really found a sweet spot of comfortable reading, note-taking/highlighting, quick and easy reference back to the notes/highlights to review (or write a blog post), and preservation of the original reading. So far, this is what I've come up with: Click on the reading. Save a PDF of the web page (or the actual PDF, depending on how it's... [Link] Tue, 16 Oct 2012 09:42:00 -0400 [Comment]

Future of Higher Education (#cfhe12) Readings - Week 1 (part 1)
VanessaVaile, MOOC Madness
Reblogged from All MOOCs, All The Time: The link between MOOCs and the future of education is pretty blatant, so I enrolled in the Siemens & Downes cMOOC The Current/Future State of Higher Education, running over the next few weeks.  The first week is dedicated to what is driving change throughout higher education. UNESCO Report on [...] [Link] Tue, 16 Oct 2012 14:24:42 +0000 [Comment]

MOOCs, demographics, and wrangling the edtech
Apostolos K. ("AK"), Multilitteratus Incognitus
Yesterday morning I was catching up on some #cfhe12 blog posts by Bryan Alexander (who I have not seen in a MOOC in ages), a blog post about defining MOOCs by Rolin Moe, and my colleague Rebecca who writes about the ease and usefulness in MOOCs†. First, let me respond to Rolin's points (since I happened to read his blog post first).There are lots of people looking at the future of academic publishing, pushing for an open movement. Some academic journals have gone open,... [Link] 2012-10-16T06:00:00.000-04:00 [Comment]

#DarkSocial - The Results Are In
AJC, Science of the Invisible
At the weekend The Atlantic published an article which has caused a bit of a stir: Dark Social: We Have the Whole History of the Web Wrong. This was timely for me as it runs head on into the draft of a post I was planning for this week. For the past three years I (or we, little w) have been using social networks with students, starting with Friendfeed and moving on to Google+ last year. We have always "forced" students to use the network (alongside face to face and email support) by means of a... [Link] Tue, 16 Oct 2012 08:36:00 +0000 [Comment]
