MediaLIT
Media literacy helps us understand, analyze and create media. While we rely on good journalism to provide accurate information, we also have responsibilities of our own in this media-saturated environment. We can no longer be passive consumers of media. We need to be active users of media, as readers, listeners, viewers and creators, so we are all better informed. Our goal is to help you do just that.

Knowledge Engineering with Semantic Web Technologies
The knowledge contained in the World Wide Web is available in interlinked documents written in natural language. To make use of this knowledge, technologies such as natural language processing, information retrieval, data and knowledge mining must be applied. Semantic Web technologies follow an alternative approach by complementing web documents with explicit semantics based on formal knowledge representations, such as e.g. ontologies. In this course, you will learn the fundamentals of ...

Study examines bystander behavior in cyberbullying cases
, Inside Higher Ed | News
The more students who witness cyberbullying in an online setting -- for example, in an online course -- the less likely those students are to take a stand against it, a new study suggests. The report, published in this quarter’s edition of Communication Monographs, explores how witnesses choose to act -- or not act -- in response to cyberbullying. Its findings suggest college students’ ability to intervene in cyberbullying changes depending on the number of other students witnessing the bullying, their perception of their own anonymity and how close they feel to the ...

Three R’s that universities care about
, Stephen's Web ~ OLDaily
Martin Weller, The Ed Techie, Jun 30, 2015 With apologies to the 5 Rs oft-cited by David Wiley, writes Martin Weller, here are the three Rs universities are really interested in (quoted): Recruitment – depending on who you are, getting students is an issue. If you are an elite university it is not so much a matter of getting sufficient students, but getting the types of students you want.

Bringing the Social Back to MOOCs
, Stephen's Web ~ OLDaily
Display Todd Bryant, EDUCAUSE Review, Jun 29, 2015 We have known this from the beginning: "For MOOCs to function as the bridge between open content and collaborative learning, they need to include opportunities for social interaction and collaboration, which have consistently proven to be beneficial to learners. Failure to do so would relegate MOOCs to little more than content repositories, which, while still valuable, would be used primarily by the highly educated, mature, and motivated independent learners they currently serve." Eventually this will be 'invented' at MIT ... [Link] , 28 Jun 2015 10:: -0400
