Interesting Buzz and Whatnot RE: Online Learning
Below are a few links I’ve run across recently discussingÂ online education, open Â access, and quality. Whether k-12, community college, or university, more and more and more students learn online.Â With each press on a keyboardÂ and swipe across a screen, students learn. And they are learning much more than the content displaying in front of them. TheyÂ learn to expectÂ certain features and even principlesÂ as the norm.Â Â As these expectations, fueled by both academic and non-academic forays into the world of instant access and information, become more sophisticated – not to mention, more demanding – we, as academic content providers, must become learners ourselves, expect more, and become more demanding. So that what we provide and how we provide it continues toÂ engage students and allows them toÂ think beyond the immediateÂ and trulyÂ achieve their potential.
