Click to View »

Over the past year, the massive open online course (MOOC) has emerged as a significantly different course model in higher education. So, what have we learned about the MOOC and its potential to support learning? In this webinar, we will review examples of how the MOOC is being utilized along with several related issues: implementation and deployment approaches; student success data; MOOC innovations; financial models; connections to traditional programs; and future developments.

At the conclusion of the webinar, participants should be able to:

  • Describe current practice and implementations of MOOCs
  • Describe current and future evolutions of the MOOC model
  • Access current information on research, cases, and data related to MOOCs

How Do We Measure Effectiveness In Mobile Learning Environments?

Presented on: July 10, 2014

Click to View »

Review measurement strategies and proven institutional examples of mobility’s potential for content delivery, student collaboration, and community building.

The EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative has been collecting research on research on mobile technologies’ potential to engage students and enhance learning. We’ll review the teaching and learning community’s findings and proven institutional examples of mobility’s potential in the areas of content delivery, student collaboration, and community building. We’ll also share strategies and methodologies to help measure the impact of mobile tools on teaching and learning. Throughout the session, we’ll engage participants on these questions: What would be the ramifications and opportunities for learning if this technology were adopted? What kinds of teaching and learning engagements might this technology: make better or enable? If we decide to do a pilot, what kind of evaluation methodology can we overlay on the project to assess outcomes? What kind of additional research needs to be done concerning this technology (student)?
