Hello!

Taken part, run, or produced a MOOC? Final call for survey responses (closing 31 May 2016)!

Take the MOOC survey or pass onto interested colleagues and let's see how we're all using them within Higher Education: http://www.moocsurvey.org

Whatever your role your views and opinions are valuable, and appreciated.

This survey aims to understand the effects of MOOCs on institutions in the following areas
* Impacts that production of MOOCs are having within Institutions
* The process of how MOOCs are being implemented
* Drivers and rationale for producing MOOCs

The survey has been created by James Little, University of Sheffield, as part of his MEd. Masters Dissertation. It has been ethically reviewed and approved by the supervisor Tim Herrick, School of Education, University of Sheffield.

http://www.moocsurvey.org (closing 31 May 2016)

Please contact me on jlittle1@sheffield.ac.uk or twitter: @jimjamyahauk. Data from the survey will be available for all to use.

Many thanks,

James Little.

Looking for recommendations for large (70+inch) touchscreen monitors...that also have whiteboard capabilities. Going to be used in a higher ed environment and will be cart-based for wide scale use among the faculty. Ease of use is a major factor for consideration and eventual purchase. Thanks!

Do you have a project, or project idea, involving the Digital Humanities?

* Are you currently working on a project that could be considered a digital humanities project?

* Do you have a project idea that could be considered digital humanities?

* Do you have or know colleagues who might answer "yes" to either of the above?

If so, please get in touch with me directly at keltona@mail.montclair.edu. A grant proposal is being put together for a digital humanities professional development event that would be national in scope but would take place here at MSU.  

We are still working on a more detailed theme, but the general topic would be "visualization"

We are currently looking for potential content providers/presenters, should the proposal be accepted.  The event would take place in spring 2017. 

If you have an interest, or know a colleague who might, please get in touch with me.

OpenIDEO is an open innovation platform that enables people everywhere to develop innovative solutions to global issues. Their current challenge asks, “How might we reimagine the cost of college in the U.S. and how it’s paid for?” and they’re looking for entrepreneurs to strengthen their ideas with human-centered design and pitch to a network of accelerators they’ve assembled. Head over to OpenIDEO if you’re interested in moving your idea forward. http://ideo.to/UHytf7

Relevance today is a moving target, but that doesn’t put it out of reach. Technology may be the key to keeping pace with constant transformation.

Despite their best efforts, neither of these measures of education guarantees learning http://buff.ly/1NFzXor

People want and need to continue learning throughout their lives, and without the barriers that high-stakes education systems have created.

The Most Important Issues in Edtech Right Now

"The dirty secret of edtech is there has yet to be an unbiased scientific study on how technology has quantifiably changed the learning outcomes of learners."

#distancelearning   #onlinelearning   #highereducation  
Someone asked me what I thought were the most important issues in edtech right now. This was my answer.
