Bundling and Re-bundling

I’m at the Knewton Symposium – an event focusing on the future of digital learning. This is the second year that I’ve attended. It’s a small event (last year had ~20 attendees, this year it’s closer to 60+). Knewton brings in a range of speakers and leaders in education, ranging from startups to big edtech companies and publishers to faculty and advocates for some type of change. The conversations are diverse, as can be expected when publishers and open education advocates as well as VC firms and academics share the same stage.

Congrats to Paul-Olivier Dehaye: MassiveTeaching

In a previous post, I commented on the Massive Teaching course at Coursera and that something odd was happening. Either Coursera deleted the prof from the course or the prof was running some type of experiment. It now appears to be primarily the latter.

I was wrong

I’ve made statements late last year to the effect that “corporate MOOCs will be the big trend in 2014?. I was wrong.

Something weird is happening at Coursera

Something weird is happening at Coursera. I’m not sure what it is exactly, but have boiled it down to two options. Both are problematic.

Activating Latent Knowledge Capacity

Last week, we wrapped up another successful Learning Analytics Summer Institute at Harvard. The recordings of most of the talks and panels can be found here. Since we were already in town, Dragan Gasevic and I were invited by edX to give a talk to their staff and member institutions (we are running a course on edX in fall on Data, Analytics, & Learning).

Attend (online) the Learning Analytics Summer Institute

Last year, we held the Learning Analytics Summer Institute (LASI) at Stanford. This year we will hold LASI at Harvard. The event starts tomorrow and runs for three days (June 30 – July 2). Our interest and mission with the Society for Learning Analytics Research is to make data and algorithms open and accessible to researchers in order to create transparency around how analytics are being used in teaching and learning. As such, we will be live streaming LASI.

New MOOC: Data, Analytics, & Learning

I’ve run a range of open courses on a fairly broad range of platforms: D2L, Moodle, Instructure, a mess of social media tools, and (most frequently) with Stephen Downes’ gRSShopper.
This fall, together with colleagues, I’ll be offering an open course on edX: Data, Analytics, and Learning. From the description:

MOOCs: Scaling Corporate Learning

While MOOCs have gained the interest and attention of higher education, they have failed to make much of an impact on corporate learning. That is starting to change. Over the past year, organizations such as Google, GE, Cisco, McAfee, Bank of America, AXA, and AT&T have started to experiment with MOOCs. Non-profits and NGOs such as Linux Foundation, WEF, OECD, Red Cross, and others have also started experimenting with large scale online learning.
