What have you experienced to date in virtual reality?

I have been working (struggling) in virtual reality for seven years now - from Second Life to the open-source movement (less expensive but more groundwork must be done).   It has been thrilling to be able to create ways for students from around the world to share ideas and experiences together.   But when you can create the world, the story line, the "content," the assessment and even the rules of behavior, you have some complex and interesting tasks.  I'd like to start by hearing who has…See More

Who's on the other end?

Posted by John Thompson on November 25, 2010 at 10:25am 1 Comment

Once people hear I teach online, I've had a few ask me how I know it's the real student actually taking the online course (assignments, discussions...). 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.

Pulling back and looking at learning theories

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.

Research on authenticity of student work
