Virtual School Meanderings

Continuing blended learning? Keep these 9 steps in mind for success.

As I say each week…  From the neo-liberal, educational privatizers masquerading as an academic body – so the term research here is used VERY loosely (as none of this actually represents methodologically sound, reliable, valid, or empirical research in any real way).

Check out this week’s highlights from the Christensen Institute.

This Week’s Must-Read Book
on Online Learning

Staying Online:
How to Navigate Digital Higher Education

CN_EN_5_June162021.jpg

By Robert Ubell

Bob Ubell is a distinguished member of the online “guru” community and an excellent writer. This book is one of his best contributions. Written at the height of COVID-19 in the US (it has a very North American feel), the book seeks to address the question: what happens after the pandemic with online and flexible learning? He explores scaling up, outsourcing and insourcing of digital learning development, the future of MOOCs, ethical issues and bias, cheating and online predators as well as the challenge of finding and keeping online learners. For policy-makers and administrators this is a good, quality, quick read. Due for release in September.

How to Navigate Digital Higher Education
 
(Rester en ligne : comment saisir l’enseignement supérieur numérique)

CN_EN_5_June162021.jpg

Par Robert Ubell

Bob Ubell est un membre éminent de la communauté des « gourous » en ligne et un excellent écrivain. Ce livre est l’une de ses meilleures contributions. Rédigé en pleine pandémie aux États-Unis (il a une touche très nord-américaine), le livre cherche à répondre à la question suivante : à la suite de la pandémie, qu’adviendra l’apprentissage en ligne et flexible? Il explore la mise à l’échelle, la sous-traitance et le recours aux services internes en matière de conception de l’apprentissage numérique, l’avenir des MOOC, les questions éthiques et les préjugés, la tricherie et le cyberharcèlement, ainsi que le défi de trouver et de garder des apprenantes et apprenants en ligne. Pour les individus affectés aux décisions politiques et à l’administration, il s’agit d’une lecture rapide et de qualité. La publication est prévue en septembre.
