"OK I will try it again and see if I can get it to work.  I have a feeling that there are specific steps to this and if you do something before the auto transcript is created it will overwrite it. Donna"

Punished by innovation: The need for better focus on IMPLEMENTATION of educational technologies

Posted by Mark K. Warford, Ph.D. on October 13, 2014 at 11:30am 0 Comments

Nearly  two decades ago, educational innovation researcher, Gene Hall (1995), warned of a growing "development-implementation balance". The pace of innovation in educational technologies, on top of the increased accreditation and accountability demands placed on P-12 teachers and higher ed. instructors, suggests a need to slow down and think through the consequences of adoption decisions.

While it has been rightly criticized as a theoretical framework that is prone to determinism,…

What are the latest thoughts on maintaining academic integrity/honesty in making sure online students have not hired someone to take the course for them? There was a recent Chronicle of Higher Education piece that raised some concerns.

Posted by Robert Piorkowski on October 21, 2010 at 10:34am 0 Comments



As a K12 teacher in my formative years, I remember taking education courses while I was teaching high school French to complete my masters. These were required for NYS certification as well as tenure. Like most young teachers, my first years in the classroom were filled with daily, "urgent" needs to have lessons and materials prepared for my students. When I would go to my… Continue

Research on authenticity of student work

Posted by Dan Feinberg on September 30, 2010 at 4:09pm 2 Comments

Online faculty (and the public at large) frequently have questions about how to maintain academic integrity in online classes. While research shows that people assume more cheating is happening online, there is no conclusive evidence that there is any difference in the amount of cheating that actually occurs...I thought this was an interesting paper on the subject: Assessment Design and Cheating Risk in Online Instruction (… Continue
