  • Tweeting, Posting & Vining: OH MY! | #aejmc14 | 7 August 2014 F2F (Seated) Courses: Traditional classroom in which students attend class & instructor is leader. Hybrid Courses: Mix of F2F and online instruction, typically via CMS such as Blackboard or Moodle. As colleges try to cram more classes into a calendar, they often turn to hybrid courses in some way to get enough classroom hours in for accreditation and assessment purposes. Online Courses: Courses meet entirely online via web, video, social media, email and/or conferencing.
  • Tweeting, Posting & Vining: OH MY! | #aejmc14 | 7 August 2014 ONLINE COURSES MOOCs Restricted to students enrolled in the college. Open to anyone with enough hardware and broadband to join in. More likely utilized by smaller players that dont want to sacrifice smallness. Marketed by huge players in U.S. higher education. Offered for college credit as with any F2F or hybrid course. Typically not offering college credit (but perhaps a certificate). Higher (but still not great) rates of completion. VERRRRRY LOW completion rates. (As low as 1% at Texas, 4% at Penn.) Attracts handfuls of students on and off campus. Attracts tens of thousands of students from around the world.

  • Tweeting, Posting & Vining: OH MY! | #aejmc14 | 7 August 2014 Students register because the course is online, not because they love what youre teaching. Many dont understand online learning. Myth of the Digital Native. Lets talk tech. Your workload.
