Temporal issues in e-learning research: A literature review

http://www.elearningeuropa.info/sites/default/files/imagecache/content_detail_picture/asset/cover.gifThe time factor in e-learning research has, for the most part, been neglected even though time is one of the most commonly heard requirements of and complaints about teaching and learning in general and the use of information and communication technology (ICT) is often touted as a solution to the problems voiced.
The article “Temporal issues in e-learning research: A literature review” presents empirical data on the presence, nature and content of variables related with temporal factors that researchers take into account in their studies on educational technology.
Authors Elena Barbera, Begoña Gros and Paul Kirschner conclude that time should be taken into account not only in micro-level research, but also in meso-level (ie, curricular) and macro-level (ie, organisational).
Published in the British Journal of Educational Technology in 2012, the article can be downloaded here (via UOC's Institutional Repository).

Online Education: No Longer Lost In Translation

Amidst live-streamed commencement ceremonies and webcasted graduation speeches, the debate over online education comes up more often than usual. Learning remotely through educational resources associated with top universities – Udacity, Coursera, and edX among the leading providers – has become very popular.
Some students choose to receive their degrees online. For those who live in various parts of the globe – Eastern Europe, the Middle East or Africa – online is the only way to access the teachers from top schools. For non-English learners it can be a challenge, but it seems that they will have more options very soon. Read more...

Using iMovie and Keynote to Make a Web-Based Keynote

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/large/public/student_affairs_and_technology_blog_header.jpgBy Eric Stoller. Recently, I was asked if I would be willing to give a keynote for a professional development event at a university. However, instead of coming to campus and delivering a presentation, the organizers wanted a "virtual keynote." While I've done numerous in-person presentations, webinars, and even a weekly web-based show, I've never done a virtual keynote. Conceptually speaking, I figured that it wouldn't be too difficult. A 30 minute presentation with slides, video, and audio…how hard could it be? Lecture capture is done all of the time. Read more...

The Ultimate History of Distance Learning


Posté par pcassuto à 23:01 - - Permalien [#]

Non, le e-learning n’est pas né en 2011 !

http://blog.educpros.fr/christine-vaufrey/wp-content/themes/longbeach_christine-vaufrey/images/img01.jpgSur le blog de Christine Vaufrey. Le 15 mai dernier, on pouvait lire dans Les Echos un article intitulé « Les universités américaines pionnières de l’enseignement en ligne ». Un pionnier désignant l’individu qui, le premier, réalise quelque chose, je m’attendais à lire un historique de la formation à distance. C’est effectivement le cas… mais le problème, c’est que l’article nous laisse croire que la formation en ligne est née avec Coursera, en 2011, donc. Avant, il n’y a avait rien que les classes traditionnelles: « L’éducation n’a guère changé depuis cinq cents ans: le savoir se transmet essentiellement en classe, par l’intermédiaire d’un professeur, d’un tableau noir et de livres. A voir le débat qui est en train d’enflammer l’Amérique sur l’éducation en ligne, Internet pourrait néanmoins rapidement changer la donne ».
Quel dommage que le journaliste ayant commis cet article n’ait pas eu connaissance de l’infographie ci-dessous, qui lui aurait donné un minimum de recul par rapport au sujet qu’il prétendait traiter. Suite de l'article...
