Innovations in Online Learning: Moving Beyond No Significant Difference

Innovations in Online Learning: Moving Beyond No Significant Difference
Via Spartacus today comes a link to this longish presentation encouraging readers to think beyond the old paradigm (when the telegraph was introduced the Pony Express reposed by getting faster horses) and toward what is enabled with online learning, beginning with personalization. "As long as we continue to replicate traditional approaches online—and continue to treat all students as if they were the same—we will once again find the "no significant difference" phenomenon vis-à-vis quality, and we will make only a negligible dent in the access problem rather than taking full advantage of the networked environment."

IDEO: Stanford Center for Interactive Learning

IDEO: Stanford Center for Interactive Learning
Most of the places I've worked - including my current location - have been really badly designed for any sort of academic work.

Online Communities 'are old-skool' says Amy Jo

Online Communities 'are old-skool' says Amy Jo
George Siemens picked up this item citing Amy Jo Kim, known for a book about online communities, suggesting that the wave of the future is centered around social networks, buddy lists and blogs.
