  • Teachers and Students: Machines and their Products? – "A great deal of what today’s education “reformers” believe is based on the idea that every student is a nascent autodidact. The only thing they are missing is opportunity. Most people, including most children, however, don’t see themselves as “starved” for knowledge or learning. They are getting along quite fine with what they have, thank you." – (xmooc edreform fyc )
  • Musicianship Resources – Git Hosted – Interesting for two things: explanation of the practices of the flipped course, and hosting the resources as a blog on GitHub. Oh, and for the design of the materials, too. – (blog github OER flippedcourse )
  • A Course in Online Civility – The Chronicle Review – The Chronicle of Higher Education – An odd one, where online discussions actually occur and with some politeness. The value points are in Goedde's connection of discourse form – rant, off-hand comment – with lack of development. "Students disagree with each other, sometimes strongly, but they also take pains to be polite.

    Their motivation is clear: Their grade depends on it. In my online classes, every assignment, big and small, is written. If the writing is sloppy or dogmatic, it doesn't earn a high grade. For example, students routinely give feedback on one another's drafts. If a student responds with a rant, either in support or opposition, it typically means the ideas are not organized, so I take off points. If a student's comments are offhanded, it typically means that the ideas are underdeveloped, or that claims are made without evidence to support them, and the grade reflects this shortcoming." – (netiquette fyc dialogue )
