  14. 14. Blended learning Different models Instruction at home Assignments, discussions, questions and answers at university Students provide presentations Facilitated with VLE
  15. 15. VLE for co-creation Students choose meaningful theme (e.g. development game concept that fosters moving) Working in groups, division of tasks Searching information Processing: video’s, text, test questions
  16. 16. Results Increased motivation Broad scope and in-depth learning Collaborative skills More responsibility for own learning
  17. 17. Online video and learning
  18. 18. Self-testing NRC, januari 2011
  19. 19. Example self assessment
  20. 20. Example self assessment Questions about scope theme
  21. 21. Example self assessment Open question
  22. 22. Example self assessment Expert feedback
  23. 23. Collaborative learning
  24. 24. Collaborative learning Designing adaptive clothing
  25. 25. Why progressive inquiry Writing fosters restructuring thoughts and deep learning Involving “quiet” students Studenten more active than teachers More possibilities for feedback of high quality (time to think about interventions) Visibility contributions (promotes diligence)
  26. 26. Developments and impact
  27. 27. Big data Foto: Infocux technologies
  28. 28. Learning analytics Identifying patterns in educational data and using these patterns to enhance and improve learning, H. Drachsler (2013) Foto: Dashboard Example
  29. 29. Chances Rich information about learners Enabling personalized learning Promoting reflection by learners
  30. 30. How do we use data? Interpretation? Important for organization and student? Does a VLE enable learning analytics?
  31. 31. Open education Bron: FreeFoto.com
  32. 32. Open education Accessible education Accessible educational resources Knowledge increases by sharing Efficient use of resources Open source software Bron: FreeFoto.com
  33. 33. MOOC Massive (but how many is ‘massive’) Open, free, accessible (how open?) Online Course, but no certificate (at least....) 2008: cMOOCs 2011: xMOOCs
  34. 34. In the mean time Large diversity (e.g. pedagogical approaches) Combination different innovations (badges, mobile learning, learning analytics) Should the ‘C’ of MOOC stand for ‘Course’? Drop out as issue, quality, business model Used for LLL, more awareness opportunities for LLL Lot of questions to be answered Are VLE’s able to facilitate MOOCs?
  35. 35. Vragen?
