Testing students endlessly may not have a positive effect on learning, but regular quizzing can. Discover how quizzes can help improve instruction, increase retention, and lead to other positive effects on learning. Please +1 and share with colleagues!
Standardized tests have become a hotly contested topic in the world of education. With many teachers and parents arguing that students spend too much time taking tests and not enough time learning, it may seem insane to suggest that teachers test their students even more. However, that’s exactly what we’re doing.

What's the difference between a quiz and a test? And... How did we end up in a world where the solution to every learning objective is tests/quizzes?

It depends on the LMS you use. Is this a function available in your management system?

Por qué el pensamiento computacional (VII). Métodos por aproximaciones sucesivas. Ensayo – error.

El método de resolución de problemas por aproximaciones sucesivas, o por ensayo-error, constituye un procedimiento que utilizamos, confrontando las ideas que nos formamos con la realidad tal como la percibimos, en acciones, percepciones y en la formación de modelos cognitivos, de ideas. 
Sucede así en el ser humano a lo largo de toda la vida, desde las primeras etapas de desarrollo, en la que los niños comienzan a conocer la realidad, el mundo que les rodea. Utilizan los sentidos, la experimentación y la capacidad de representación de las experiencias, para aceptar o rechazar el conocimiento que la realidad les ofrece y para inducirlo. 
Ese mecanismo forma parte del desarrollo humano, pero también lo encontramos en los fundamentos de la ciencia. Así lo vemos en multitud de ámbitos y dominios del saber y de la técnica. Constituye la base de las ideas de Popper (1934) que fundamentan el método científico. Lo encontramos igualmente como uno de los procedimientos que más frecuente utilizan los programadores, de forma espontánea y subyacente, en casi todas las fases de su trabajo. 
También constituye la esencia de la ayuda pedagógica que los maestros y tutores hacen a sus alumnos para guiarles en estos procesos de ensayo error y que no se pierdan o se distraigan por caminos inapropiados.

Attention: Past MOOC Participants

We are educational researchers at Northern Illinois University conducting a study about Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). We are looking for past MOOC participants to be part of the study. Participation in the research involves completion of an online survey that should take approximately one hour. 

Participation requires that an individual has previously participated in a MOOC. Participants can enter a raffle for 1 of 2 Apple TVs or 1 of 15 $20 gift certificates. 

We would be grateful if you would participate in our study, or if you could disseminate the link to individuals who are eligible. Full information about this study can be accessed here: https://niu.az1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_2uDHSmnJGZnYWPj 
The survey is best completed on a personal computer (e.g., laptop, desktop), rather than a mobile/cell phone.

Sincerely,
Todd Reeves, Ph.D (treeves@niu.edu)
Amy Stich, Ph.D (astich@niu.edu)

2 Foolhardly Entrepreneurs Pushing for Online Learning in South East Asia

Hi all, we are launching an online learning platform in late February 2015 that is targeted at the South-East Asian market. The education industry in Southeast Asia is still very traditional and conservative. My partner and I are trying to show the region the opportunities and possibilities of e-learning.

We hope that you could show your support for us in our crowdfunding campaign. Comments and suggestions from experienced personnel are also welcomed!

Anyway, here's the pitch:

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/tutornauts-online-learning-anytime-anywhere

What’s in it for you as an Online Tutor?
- Set your own fees per hour
- Decide your own schedule
- Earn money teaching online
- Earn money answering questions online (homework help!)
- Teach any subject (Academics, skills, expertise)

By contributing to our campaign as a tutor, you will get to earn 90% of all revenue generated from your services, (compared to the usual 80%), for a period of time depending on the perks selected.

What’s in it for you as a student?
- Set your budget, schedule your lesson, choose your tutor
- Learn any subject, skill or expertise
- Post questions and get answers (Homework Help!)
- Learn in the comfort of your home; no more travelling to learning/tuition centres!

By contributing to the campaign as a student, you will get ADDITIONAL CREDITS which you can spend on lessons and posting questions. (A lesson’s cost starts from 5 credits per hour and posting a question costs 5 credits.)

We have a referral scheme for this campaign as well. Do share it with a friend and receive credits for every successful referral! (Credits are used to pay for services on our learning platform.) 
Welcoming all Students and Tutors to be part of Asia's E-Learning growth story! | Crowdfunding is a democratic way to support the fundraising needs of your community. Make a contribution today!

Docebo Video Tutorial: learn how to use the Offline Player App! 
Nowadays being connected and able to access the web anywhere, anytime (especially in the West) is pretty much taken for granted however there are circumstances when this is not always the case - in other words, bandwidth is not always a given.
