*25 Awesome Open Online Educational Resources *

A comprehensive list of open online educational resources.These educational resources complement and supplement MOOCs on the one hand and, going further, they enable a large body of learners, both traditional school/ college going students as well as self learners and, the teachers as well, by providing open, share-able, often modifiable, mix-able and remix-able (depending upon the licenses), syllabi, contents, books, videos, slides, and other assets.  These resources are mostly open, free, often downloadable as pdf, ePub, or other formats and, are quite valuable in terms of the content via +TechnoDuet

Use MOOCs to Get a Free Psychology Education from Top Universities

Psychology gives you a greater understanding of the mind so you can
-predict how people will behave as consumers and human beings in general.

The problem is that we have to spend over $25,000 dollars a semester to get our degree.

Fortunately, there is a way to gain knowledge and skills in psychology without going into debt. By crawling the best MOOCs around from places like Princeton, and The University of Michigan (both of which have top psych programs) and by using our own experience, we have constructed a free psychology curriculum so you can complete your own psych major online! http://skld.us/1k0QS4D
Do you want to get quality education from top universities FOR FREE? Try our Free Online Psychology Major compiled from the best MOOCs around!

Big Thinkers: Howard Gardner on Multiple Intelligences.   Here's a wonderful 8 minute talk about how different kids learn in different ways.  The talk was recorded back in 1997, surprisingly long ago.   He mentions quite casually how easy it will be for computerized course presentations to present the lessons differently according to the learning style of the student taking the course.   Yet here we are all these years later and I don't think I've seen a single example of a MOOC that has a "Plan B" and "Plan C" in its arsenal nor even a MOOC that formulates a guess as to the learning style of each student.   Have you got an example to point out that I'm overlooking?

The theory seems so obvious in the attached video.   Why in all these years since has no one put together a MOOC that puts these ideas into practice?  Or have I just been hanging around the wrong MOOC's on the cheap side of the tracks?

Main cause of fear among student is the drastic changes that have taken place in writing trend. And student can overcome the fear of writing by completing the writing task frequently, but it is equally important for the students to get some help from experts and student should try to develop his interest in the writing task.

About this community

The recent emergence of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) is redefining higher education. This is a G+ Community to share and discuss the latest trends, issues and experiences related to MOOC. ----------------------------------- A little about MOOC: MOOC, an acronym for Massive Open Online Course, is a form of distance education where many prestigious universities including MIT, Harvard, Stanford, Princeton among others and distinguished professors are offering courses via web, usually free and without credit, to anyone anywhere interested. Three major MOOC providers are EdX, coursera and Udacity.
 
Professional development training is about to be changed like never before.

On July 1, 2014, pdtraining launched the “Connected Classroom” in Australia, New Zealand and the USA. OK, so what’s the big deal?

First, courses will be delivered using Android tablets instead of traditional printed manuals. This will result in a savings of over 500,000 printed pages in the next 12 months in Australia alone. Can you hear the trees applauding?

Next, students attending the pdtraining courses will keep the tablets after the course is finished and the device can be used at their next training course which will enable a $100 discount off of all future courses with pdtraining. Learning and development managers will now be adding to their organisation’s asset register every time they book someone in for a course with pdtraining.

But it’s not all about the gadgets! The tablet is simply a tool which will enable the “connected classroom” experience. From this device the students will access and edit their training materials as required, they will undergo a personality profiling assessment, be able to view 100’s of professional development videos on the pdtraining YouTube video channel, interact with their trainer and the other students in same the course (before the course date) in a private online forum, access an online version of the course they are attending and instantly be enrolled in an international LinkedIn forum where they can interact with like-minded professionals from around the world.

Industry funding of education
http://chronicle.com/article/Starbucks-Will-Send-Thousands/147151/

This corporate sponsorship is reminiscent of AT&Ts sponsorship of the MS in computer science at Georgia Tech (http://cis471.blogspot.com/search/label/georgia%20tech) even though there are significant differnces between the two -- AT&T is helping fund the development of a new, non-MOOC degree while it sounds like Starbucks is paying to expand a current offering.

Critics claim that this will be a watered-down education taught by harried part timers. It is also a bit disconcerting to think that, like health insurance, education might become tied to employment. These critics might be right, but it is an experiment worth watching. If the tax payers will not pay for education and student debt is skyrocketing, perhaps employers will.

Ghost writers for hire to do school assignments??   Anyone got a case to present to convince me this isn't just a bad idea from an education perspective?

+SkilledUp - Don't read me wrong. I enjoyed CS101 from Udacity and it greatly improved my confidence in my knowledge of the Python programming language. I've accumulated more than 3,550 karma points on the Cs101 forum. It's a good course. I'm just unconvinced that the certificate of completion (with Highest Distinction) has much value in today's job market. Of course, in today's job market there's room to debate the value of my Ivy League diploma too.
