I’ll be giving an upcoming webinar where I make my case for defining microlearning. And, as part of my usual wrestling with clarity, I created a diagram. I thought I’d share it with you. What, you want me to walk you through it? MORE
By Phil Hanyok, COTP. Every quarter, employees gather in the cafeteria for town hall meetings. The tables are removed, and seats are placed in neat rows. The podium, microphone, and projector screen are tested and ready. As employees enter the room and take their seats, the senior vice president who will present the latest company information talks quietly with one of his direct reports. MORE

The Open University in Britain and the University of British Columbia (where Web CT, now incorporated into Blackboard Inc., was first developed) began a revolution of using the Internet to deliver learning, making heavy use of web-based training, online distance learning and online discussion between students. Practitioners such as Harasim (1995) put heavy emphasis on the use of learning networks.
The only software that I am aware of that UTD uses that is even remotely “monitoring” is the LockDown Web Browser which students have to use when they’re taking an online quiz at the Testing Center. But it is mostly just an enforced whitelist. Other software is in use too such as TurnItIn (used to check for plagiarism).
Note: If you have multiple sections, the system will create the course with all of the sections included in one course. If you prefer that each section be created as its own course, please request each course separately.
A five-hour extended maintenance outage has been scheduled for Tuesday, December 12, from 1-6am (early morning) to perform emergency maintenance on our eLearning environment. During this time, eLearning will be UNAVAILABLE. If you have any questions, please contact eLearning@utdallas.edu.
Group webpages, blogs, wikis, and Twitter allow learners and educators to post thoughts, ideas, and comments on a website in an interactive learning environment. Social networking sites are virtual communities for people interested in a particular subject to communicate by voice, chat, instant message, video conference, or blogs. The National School Boards Association found that 96% of students with online access have used social networking technologies, and more than 50% talk online about schoolwork. Social networking encourages collaboration and engagement and can be a motivational tool for self-efficacy amongst students.
Since technology is not the end goal of education, but rather a means by which it can be accomplished, educators must have a good grasp of the technology and its advantages and disadvantages. Teacher training aims for effective integration of classroom technology.
The issue reported earlier has been resolved. You should now see the Fall 2017 courses listed in eLearning. (Please Note – Students will not be able to access these courses until the first day of the… More semester, which is August 21.) Thank you for your patience. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Phishing is an online scam involving email messages that appear to be from a trusted source. WMU will never send you an email requesting your password. If you suspect a phishing scam, report it to the Help Desk or just delete it.
Although massive open online courses (MOOCs) may have limitations that preclude them from fully replacing college education, such programs have significantly expanded. MIT, Stanford and Princeton University offer classes to a global audience, but not for college credit. University-level programs, like edX founded by Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University, offer wide range of disciplines at no charge, while others permit students to audit a course at no charge but require a small fee for accreditation. MOOCs have not had a significant impact on higher education and declined after the initial expansion, but are expected to remain in some form.
eLearning will be UNAVAILABLE Thursday, July 7, from 2-4am CDT (early morning) in order to perform server maintenance. During this time, eLearning will not be accessible. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

It’s time for eLearning Trivia! What does “eLearning” stand for? The spelling of “eLearning” has never truly been standardized, but it’s agreed that it describes learning that takes place through electronic devices. The post eLearning Trivia appeared first on Knowledge Direct.
Turnitin (anti-plagiarism) software will undergo essential maintenance on Saturday 01/07/2017 from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM CST. During this 8 hour window, Turnitin assignments will not be available. This does not… More affect regular eLearning assignments; it only affects Turnitin assignments. Users are requested to plan accordingly.
According to Branford et al., “technology does not guarantee effective learning” and inappropriate use of technology can even hinder it. A University of Washington study of infant vocabulary shows that it is slipping due to educational baby DVDs. Published in the Journal of Pediatrics, a 2007 University of Washington study on the vocabulary of babies surveyed over 1,000 parents in Washington and Minnesota. The study found that for one hour that babies 8–16 months of age watched DVDs and Videos they knew 6-8 fewer of 90 common baby words than the babies that did not watch them. Andrew Meltzoff, a surveyor in this study states that the result makes sense, that if the baby’s ‘alert time’ is spent in front of DVDs and TV, instead of with people speaking, the babies are not going to get the same linguistic experience. Dr. Dimitri Chistakis, another surveyor reported that the evidence is mounting that baby DVDs are of no value and may be harmful.
