DENVER — If professors record their lectures and put them online, will students still come to class?
That question came up in two different sessions at the 2009 Educause Conference here on Friday. And in both cases, the panelists cited research indicating that students’ likelihood of skipping class has no correlation with whether a professor decides to capture her lecture and post it the Web.
DENVER — Meeting in the Mile High City, it was inevitable that the 2009 Educause Conference would contain a discussion about clouds.
When Melissa Woo, director of cyberstructure research at the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee, and Michael Dieckmann, CIO of the University of West Florida, squared off in a debate over the merits of outsourcing campus tech systems to “the cloud,” they weren't talking about weather clouds. But for many higher-ed technologists, storing information on off-site systems known as "the cloud" can be just as ominous.
Though Blackboard's critics have worried the company might monopolize the market for e-learning tools, competition continues to surface -- notably from companies that once were more focused on the administrative side of campus computing.
Distance learning has broken into the mainstream of higher education. But at the campus level, many colleges still know precious little about how best to organize online programs, whether those programs are profitable, and how they compare to face-to-face instruction in terms of quality.
That is what Kenneth C. Green, director of the Campus Computing Project, concludes in a study released today in conjunction with the Western Cooperative for Educational Telecommunications.
