Trainers: How elearning can stop you from losing business
News from bdaily:

Can I post an article about anything on Bdaily?

No – we only publish articles that are relevant to a business audience. We have 9 sectors which are often a good point of reference if you are unsure. Because we are a business platform, we would not publish articles that are not business relevant. For example we would remove content about music, wildlife, schools etc. unless they had a clear business angle.

I’m confused – what is the difference between News, Advice and Opinion pieces?

News pieces are timely updates on events. Usually the reader is given new or updated information. News is time sensitive.

An Advice piece is something that explains a process, gives hints, tips or pointers on how to do something or improve something. Advice is not usually time sensitive and written to follow a more general theme.

Opinion pieces are again written to fit in with a general theme but giving an experts opinion on something that is of note to the business audience.

Can I add links to my article?

Yes but this is at a cost. If you are publishing your article and wish to add a no-follow link, this will cost ?70+VAT. If you wish to publish a free article then you can not add a link. Adding follow links is strictly prohibited and can lead to a member being banned from uploading content.

Development focus: Why e-Learning is far from boring

Development focus: Why e-Learning is far from boring
News from Money Marketing:

Categories:Advisers,Technology

By 2020, eLearning will make up 95 per cent of the learning market – that is the prediction of Craig Weiss, one of the world’s leading authorities on online learning.

His assertion is that face-to-face learning methodology has been the same for 400 years but in 20 years eLearning has transformed the learning space.

Yet if asked for their perception of eLearning, most advisers would probably have a similar response. The words “boring” “dull” and a “necessary evil” would likely feature heavily and with some justification, given firms’ traditional predominantly regulation-driven relationship with eLearning.

[Via Satellite 10-14-2014] SES has revealed its Live Interactive Classroom application for use in an eLearning project called KUganda. The platform will connect the Catholic University Eichst?tt – Ingolstadt in Germany to the Permanent Center for Education in Kampala, Uganda using SES Broadband Services’ solution.

The Live Interactive Platform brings students and teachers together using audio and video communications coupled with presentation slides. Eichst?tt Professor Gaby Gien will deliver a seminar from Germany to students and teachers in Uganda.

“Part of the challenge is to provide teachers in Africa with computers and resources. Without Internet connectivity, teachers and children are deprived of the use of educational content online. Bridging this digital divide is key,” said Gien, speaking on behalf of the KUganda initiative. “With this demonstration, we aim to show how satellite broadband can help to improve social and educational development by pr…………… continues on Satellite Today

SummaryAshish Nanda also lists out areas where IIM-Ahmedabad could improve.

The director of Indian Institute of Management-Ahmedabad (IIM-A), Ashish Nanda said that the country’s premier B-school was facing “new and disruptive” competition from foreign universities, e-learning platforms and offshore educational offerings.

“In addition to intense competition from established Indian management institutions, new and disruptive competition is emerging in the form of Indian operations of foreign universities, e-learning platforms and offshore educational offerings,” Nanda said while addressing the graduating students at the institute’s convocation ceremony on Saturday.

“We welcome vigorous competition. It energises the field of management education and keeps us dynamic. And we wish not only to respond to competition, but also to become a significant global presence, competitive with the best management schools in the world,” he added.

Nanda also pointed out certain areas where IIMA could improve. “We could improve in some areas that drive institutional health. Our research output could be more impactful.

EACS embraces eLearning plan
News from Fort Wayne Journal Gazette:

– Despite at least one board member’s concern, East Allen County Schools officials approved an eLearning plan Tuesday to help make up for some of the district’s missed instructional time.

School board members also approved a plan to continue adding 30 minutes to each school day through May 8.

EACS students have missed 14 days because of snow and ice but have been in the process of making up for missed time by extending each school day.

Each full week of extended days allows the district to make up three hours, and by May 8, students will have made up 25 hours of instruction, Superintendent Ken Folks said.

The Indiana Department of Education recognizes elementary school days as five hours and a secondary school day as six hours.

With the current plan, elementary school students will make up five days and middle and high school students will make up four days and one hour, Folks explained.

To avoid a situation in which older students would be required to go an extra day, district officials approved an eLearning plan to help middle and high school students make up an additional five hours.

Folks said the district will likely select a Saturday in April for the eLearning day but will meet next week to discuss the exact date.

Students across the district will have access to comput…………… continues on Fort Wayne Journal Gazette

Versal Steers Away from the YouTube Model in Online Education

Versal Steers Away from the YouTube Model in Online Education
News from Xconomy:

Ask educators and entrepreneurs today how technology is changing the way students learn, and they’ll point first to MOOCs, or massive online open courses, the new teaching approach being developed by companies like Udacity and Coursera and non-profit ventures like edX.

But how new are MOOCs, really? If you look beyond the delivery mechanism—the Internet—the core content of most online courses is pretty traditional: video recordings of faculty lectures. Which means students in these courses are mainly just sitting back and listening, the same way they would in a lecture hall, except that they’re probably at home in their sweats.

Wasn’t there supposed to be more to computer-mediated learning than watching YouTube? And what about people like Gregor Freund who don’t l…………… continues on Xconomy

DfE will not ‘dictate’ specifics on e-learning ICT resources, says Gove
News from Computing:

In Computing’s exclusive interview with Michael Gove, the education secretary has stated that while the Department for Education (DfE) is “keen that schools embrace the opportunities” presented by advances in so-called ‘e-learning’ resources, “it is not for me or the government to wade in to dictate how schools and teachers should use them within the curriculum”.

Gove championed resources available from education institutes abroad, such as “MIT’s OpenCourseWare and other exciting projects, like Khan Academy and Open University’s OpenLearn”, which he said “can add significant value to education”.

“I saw first-hand in Singapore, for example, how brilliant lessons can be delivered through a mixture of online and teacher-led instruction,” added Gove.

But the education secretary added that it is also important “for teachers to have the skills to use technology well, and for schools to learn from innovators in this field”.

“That is why the Department for Education is supporting the National Teaching Schools’ new technology group to identify and share good practice,” said Gove.

“These are outstanding schools with a role in supporting the professional development of leaders and teachers elsewhere.”

Pulse brings iPhone and iPad together in iOS app

Pulse continues to strive to match the success to news aggregator rivals Flipboard and Zite, and so updated both its iOS and Android apps to Pulse 3.0 in the week.

The update sees the San Francisco-based firm (officially called Alphonso Labs) now promise a sleeker, more user-friendly UI, an enhanced category sidebar and perhaps most refreshingly a search feature which enables you to pull news from additional sources like Facebook, Google, YouTube, Tumblr or Flickr.

Additional changes see the app (free, iTunes) add infinite scrolling (so you can view stories up to three months old), and the ability to rename pages or reorder sources.

Furthermore, version 3.0 of the iOS app sees it run across both iPhone and iPad (Pulse previously had specific versions for the iPhone and iPad).

States Look to Better Regulate Online Universities
News from Government Technology:

Many U.S. states regulate who provides online education to their residents to ensure consumers aren’t getting stiffed — and now a group of states is brainstorming how to make the process of regulating these online universities smoother and more cost-effective.

Under Minnesota law, for instance, colleges that provide online courses must register with the state’s Office of Higher Education and pay a fee if they want to enroll students in the state. Currently 150 to 160 online schools are registered in the state.

This process ensures that the office can investigate student allegations that faculty members aren’t qualified. The office also can look at the schools’ financial structure to see if they’re likely to be around long enough for students to complete a quarter or semester. And it makes sure they’re a real school.

“We know they’re in the state, we know they’re operating in the state, and we have some control so to speak over them if they do something that upsets a student or that is wrong,” said George Roedler, manager of institutional registration and licensing in the Minnesota Office of Higher Education.
