Update on Lloyd’s MOOC Statistics in Education for Mere Mortals

Not K-12 distance, online or blended learning related…  But something that may be of interest to folks interested in research or understanding the research process.

To: Past participants of Lloyd Rieber’s MOOC “Statistics in Education for Mere Mortals”
Hi everyone,
I hope you won’t mind me sending you this personal email with a few announcements. I wanted to get the word out about the upcoming offerings of the “Statistics in Education for Mere Mortals” (SEMM) MOOC, plus tell you about a few other things.
LLOYD’S MOOC COMING AGAIN SOON
The plan is offer the MOOC again in February 2017, with an ongoing schedule of offering it twice a year – once in February and once in July. I’m currently talking with Instructure Canvas on the actual dates for the February section, but the most likely starting date is February 6, 2017. Although not listed on the Canvas site yet, the course will be listed in the next week or so:
PUBLICATION OF RESEARCH ARTICLE ABOUT THE SEMM MOOC
I’m very happy to announce that the British Journal of Educational Technology will soon publish a research study I conducted on the SEMM MOOC. You can access a “preview version” of the article at the following URL:
Here is the citation of the preview version:
Rieber, L. P. (2016). Participation patterns in a massive open online course (MOOC) about statistics. British Journal of Educational Technology. doi:10.1111/bjet.12504
Obviously, this research would not have been possible without cooperation and participation by many of you. So thank you.
LLOYD’S VIDEO ANALYSIS TOOL
Finally, here is something from the “Shameless Commerce Division” of NowhereRoad.com. I recently published a video analysis tool app for the Macintosh. If you, or someone you know, uses video in your research or teaching, please consider this app for your work. The app currently costs a mere $5.99 (US). You can check out a free version (with limited functionality) first to see if the app meets your needs (and to make sure it will work on your computer system). Here is the link to the app’s web site:
The commercial version is only available for the Macintosh, but if you do purchase it and would like a (non-supported) Windows version, email me for more information.
Again, please be sure the trial version works OK on your system before purchasing. As you probably know, Apple does not give refunds.
I wish everyone a peaceful, productive, and rewarding new year!
Lloyd
