Sloan Consortium (Sloan-C) Publications Journal: JALN

Here is a paper about RESEARCH ON ONLINE LEARNING by Dr. Karen Swan , appears in Volume 11, Issue 1 - April 2007, edition of Journal of Asynchronous Learning Networks.



INTRODUCTION
Over the past decade, the Internet has had a profound impact on higher education by enabling the phenomenal growth of online learning. Moreover, just as we were getting used to fully online courses, blended courses, courses which integrate online and face-to-face instruction, seem to be growing in similar, perhaps even more spectacular, manner.
Add to that a plethora of emerging digital technologies such as wikis, blogs, podcasting, social software, and serious gaming technologies that are increasingly being incorporated into online or online portions of courses, and one is tempted to despair of ever making sense of online learning. The altered learning environments created by web-based technologies, not only eliminate barriers of time, space and arguably learning styles, providing increased access to higher education, they challenge our traditional notions of teaching and learning, and indeed higher education itself.

Blended Learning in the European 3rd Sector

By Hans-Dieter Haller, Jutta List-Ivancovic and Tim Scholze

In the years 2004 and 2005 the project eL3 was developed in the European healthcare, social, environmental and educational sector.
The aim of the project was to collect information and practice examples from hospitals to grass-root institutions to contribute to the actual discussion about “blended learning”.

Project partners from 4 European countries, from educational institutes and from 3rd sector organisations collaborated to get a common ground and basic information about the situation as far as blended learning in the 3rd sector is concerned.
The project aimed to give an information base and practical support to those stakeholders dealing with learning and blended learning in their institutions.

Take a look at these papers, appears 19.04.2007, in edition of European Journal of Open and Distance Learning.


Design of Virtual Tutoring Agents for a Virtual Biology Experiment
By Jian Qing Yu, David J. Brown and Ellen Billett

Abstract
Virtual learning environments (VLEs) may possess many advantages over traditional teaching methods in skills training that offer empowerment of constructing the skills by freely exploring a VLE. However, a conflict between the free exploration and ensuring the learning tasks tackled emerges in the learning process.

Virtual Laboratory

A strategy to balance the conflict is to employ virtual tutoring agents to scaffold the learning tasks. This research has been carried out to investigate the issues of design and utility of a virtual tutoring agent system in a VLE to allow higher education (university based) students to practise immunology laboratory experiments, which simulates a well known immunochemical assay in the Life Sciences area, namely a Radio Immunoassay.
This paper discusses the classification of category of the virtual agents in a VLE and focuses on the design of tutoring agents. Three types of the tutoring agents have been selected and implemented in the Radio Immunoassay simulation. The considered points in programming the virtual tutoring agents and their tasks are presented in this paper. A formative evaluation studies have been carried out and discussed to verify the designed virtual tutoring agents are satisfied to the target students' needs.

VIRCLASS: the Virtual Classroom for Social Work in Europe - a toolkit for innovation?
By Grete Oline Hole and Anne Karin Larsen

Abstract
Through a student-centred virtual learning environment students and teachers in Europe cooperate, exchange information of social work in their own country, and increase their digital literacy. In VIRCLASS students from 15 countries collaborated in their learning process by sharing knowledge with peer-students. Teachers from eight European countries were involved in the course. With a common curriculum, a study-program rewarded with 15 ECTS credits and using A-F marks many of the elements from the Bologna-process are met.

Researchers break Internet speed records


A group of researchers led by the University of Tokyo has broken Internet speed records — twice in two days.
Operators of the high-speed Internet2 network announced Tuesday that the researchers on Dec. 30 sent data at 7.67 gigabits per second, using standard communications protocols. The next day, using modified protocols, the team broke the record again by sending data over the same 20,000-mile path at 9.08 Gbps.
That likely represents the current network's final record because rules require a 10% improvement for recognition, a percentage that would bring the next record right at the Internet2's current theoretical limit of 10 Gbps.

E-portfolios :: Making Things E-asy by John K. Waters

A young teacher’s implementation of a simple-to-use e-portfolio program is helping to reform a troubled East Coast high school.





Amy Weigand, Hope High School

In the midst of this reclamation project is Amy Weigand. Weigand joined the faculty of the newly established arts community in 2005 because she wanted to be part of the Hope High reform effort. During the previous three years, she had taught at Burrillville High School in Harrisville, RI—her first teaching job—where she got some hands-on experience with electronic portfolios. “Burrillville was into e-portfolios early,” she says, “so I was used to this idea of collecting and uploading digital examples of students’ work. E-portfolios have been a part of my teaching from the beginning.”
E-portfolios, which emerged in the early 1990s, employ a combination of technologies to create and publish a collection of student work, which is stored in digital formats, either online or on disks. (See “Defining E-portfolios” below).

What's Online Education All About? by Patricia Deubel, Ph.D.

Unless you are directly involved with teaching online, have students taking courses online, or have taken an online course yourself, chances are that you find the concept of online education quite nebulous. You might not have any interest in it.
Terms like distance education, fully online, blended courses, virtual courses, e-learning, hybrid courses, mixed-mode, asynchronous learning, distributed learning, Web-facilitated, and Web-enhanced learning add to the confusion (Picciano & Seaman, 2007, pp. 1-2).

However, online learning is on the rise in K-12 education, and you should know some of the basics and issues surrounding it. It is adding flexibility to the traditional school experience, meeting the needs of specific groups of students, and increasing course offerings.
If it has not already done so, it probably will affect your teaching scenario before too long. So, what's online education all about? Well ... it's all in who you ask or what resources you consult.

EDUCAUSE Review

Just look at this interesting line-up in this EDUCAUSE Review, March/April 2007, Volume 42, Number 2 issue:



  • Innovation, Adoption, and Learning Impact: Creating the Future of IT
    By Rob Abel
    Leadership in IT requires a focus on current technology innovation, adoption, and impact on learning, but most important, leadership in IT requires understanding the alignment of external factors—access, affordability, perceived quality—to the core mission and integrity of the institution.

  • Social Networking Technologies: A "Poke" for Campus Services
    By Joanne Berg, Lori Berquam, and Kathy Christoph

    Although advances in social networking technologies allow for new and perhaps more efficient means of learning and communicating, they also pose some significant challenges in higher education, especially for those campus professionals who provide student and academic services.

  • Convergence Is Real
    By Mike Enyeart, E. Michael Staman, and Jose J. Valdes Jr.
    The future is set for convergence—for the integration of the communications and computing resources and services that seamlessly traverse multiple infrastructures and deliver content to multiple platforms or appliances. Campus IT organizations need to understand the trends in order to structure their services as the future evolves.

Projects turn students' commutes into extended learning opportunities

School buses and other vehicles are being equipped with wireless internet access in an emerging trend that has enormous implications for students. Proponents of the trend say wireless connectivity on buses could turn what is often a dull ride into another opportunity for learning.
In one example of this trend, a Vanderbilt University professor is helping rural students with long commutes to school by turning their buses into mobile classrooms. Students will be able to download lessons from the internet via cell-phone towers.
Billy Hudson, a professor of medicine and biochemistry, got inspiration for the project from his own childhood in rural Arkansas.
