Alibaba’s virus-beating education app draws Chinese students’ ire

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Fri, 2020-02-21 01:05

COCO LIU, Nikkei
Alibaba Group Holding’s attempt to promote online education as the coronavirus forces schools across China to remain closed has hit an unexpected barrier: disgruntled, tech-savvy students. Young people vote down DingTalk in protest at having to study during school shutdowns. DingTalk, the tech conglomerates’s messaging app, recently launched e-classes for schools. Now the app is taking a beating in online stores as tens of thousands of students who are angry at having to study despite schools being closed vent their frustrations by giving DingTalk a bad rating. Apps with lower ratings appear lower in searches, potentially hurting download rates.

Madeline St. Amour, Inside Higher Ed
Community colleges need to create holistic student supports to serve their increasingly diverse student populations, according to a series of briefs released by Achieving the Dream. The holistic student supports approach requires colleges to tie support services into a “seamless, timely and personal experience for every student,” according to the nonprofit group. It includes comprehensive advising, scalable case management models, a change leadership framework and assessment using technology to improve these strategies as time goes on.

Natalie Schwartz, Education Dive

The Arizona Supreme Court agreed this week to review a dismissed lawsuit that takes aim at rising tuition rates at the state’s public universities.   The Arizona attorney general alleges in the lawsuit that tuition increases at the state’s public universities violate the state constitution’s mandate to keep higher education “as nearly free as possible.” The legal battle comes as universities nationwide are struggling to curb tuition increases after years of wavering state support.

Income-Driven Repayment Plans for Student Loans: Budgetary Costs and Policy Options

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Thu, 2020-02-20 01:02

Congressional Budget Office

Introduced as a way to make student loan repayment more manageable, income-driven plans limit payments to a percentage of borrowers’ income and allow for loan forgiveness after 20 or 25 years. The Congressional Budget Office examined how income-driven plans differ from plans that require fixed monthly payments, how enrollment in income-driven plans has changed over
time, and how those plans are projected to affect the federal budget.

President Donald Trump is proposing cuts to countless programs benefiting people with disabilities, advocates say, touching everything from Medicaid to employment and autism treatment.  Trump unveiled his $4.8 trillion budget proposal this week for the 2021 fiscal year that starts in October. The president’s budget is unlikely to be rubber-stamped by Congress, but essentially serves as a wish list outlining his priorities. Trump is seeking reductions to Medicaid, food assistance, state councils on developmental disabilities, university centers on developmental disabilities and protection and advocacy programs, said David Card at the National Disability Rights Network.

As Coronavirus Spreads, House-bound Chinese Students Are Causing An Online Ed-Tech Boom

John Cumbers, Forbes

China is on lockdown, and the whole world is watching developments about the coronavirus in real-time. Yet amidst the fear and panic, there’s a surprising consequence: students and workers who are effectively captive behind closed doors are logging online en masse. The result? New innovation and a burgeoning demand for a new way of learning and working. A catalyst, perhaps, for how we interact in a global economy that demands greater sustainability.

Teachers are encouraged to film or livestream lessons to facilitate online learning during period when classes are suspended, Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung Yun-hung said. His call came in wake of last month’s announcement that the suspension will last until March 2. Writing in his blog yesterday, he said: “The suspension is not an extra holiday. Everyone should make good use of the time and continue to learn. The class suspension does not mean a suspension in learning.”

Race on to create online courses for virus-stranded students

John Ross, Times Higher Ed

Universities face a daunting task ramping up their online capabilities to maintain course delivery to thousands of Chinese students exiled from campuses by Covid-19 coronavirus-related travel bans, but experts believe the biggest challenges will be pedagogical rather than technical.  Australia has been hardest hit because of its heavy reliance on Chinese students and the fact that the crisis occurred shortly before the start of a new academic year Down Under, with nearly 100,000 learners stranded at home. Online learning is seen as a way to limit disruption and maintain student engagement but, despite questions over Chinese students’ willingness to consume content remotely, researchers told Times Higher Education that the biggest barrier will be the capacity of academics and universities to deliver it.

Throughout China, quarantines and lockdowns are the new norm as cities try to contain the virus. Most parents here are afraid to let their kids go outside even for a little while, and no one knows how long it will last. Just a few days ago, we heard that schools, which have been on winter vacation for the past three weeks, won’t start again until March at the earliest. So teachers are sending out e-learning assignments as many parents head back to work remotely.

Will Coronavirus Crisis Trigger an Enrollment Crisis?

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Mon, 2020-02-17 01:04

Elizabeth Redden, Inside Higher Ed

The biggest story in international education over the last decade was, in a word, China. As the number of students from China studying in the U.S. grew rapidly, fueled by a big increase in tuition-paying undergraduates, colleges and universities grew reliant on them to balance their budgets. And as Chinese universities grew in stature, American colleges created innumerable partnerships with their Chinese counterparts in research and other areas.  Now the global public health crisis precipitated by an outbreak of a new coronavirus, COVID-19, in China — and the imposition of travel restrictions barring entry to the U.S. of most foreign nationals who have traveled to China within the last 14 days — threatens student flows and other forms of collaboration. More than 1,100 people have died from the virus, which was first identified in December in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the center of the outbreak.

Quantum entanglement over 30 miles of fiber has brought super secure internet closer

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Mon, 2020-02-17 01:02

Douglas Heaven, Technology Review

In a paper in Nature today, Pan Jian-Wei at the University of Science and Technology of China, in Hefei, and his colleagues describe an experiment in which they demonstrate entanglement through more than 30 miles of fiber coiled in a lab, with lower transmission errors than previous attempts. “This is a big improvement,” says Pan, who is sometimes called the “father of quantum.” The trick was to find efficient ways to entangle two particles. The team used an atom, which stayed put, and a photon, which was sent down the fiber. They found that they were able to create an entangled pair of nodes much more reliably than was demonstrated in previous experiments—including the one setting the mile benchmark, which it beat by five orders of magnitude.

Keeping pace with lifelong learning demands

RICHARD PRICE, eCampus News

There is a tendency to see the transition between higher education and the workforce, from a skills acquisition perspective, as packing all your belongings from college into one suitcase, getting your first job, and then…that’s it. You unpack, settle down, and never have to pack again. If you need anything else, your employer takes care of it. This leads educational institutions, government agencies, and many companies to imagine a single, modular interface between college and a first job, and to behave as if higher education’s role is done after the graduation ceremony.

Know YourStudents

Ray Schroeder, Inside Higher Ed

Far too often we begin planning a class with the content, pedagogy, technology and outcomes in mind — without first researching the students. When teaching, it seems logical to begin with the content or the pedagogy and then apply technologies to meet the outcomes we see, yet this misses the most important foundational step in the process. It is to get to know the students who have enrolled in your program in the past or for whom you are designing the class. We cannot make assumptions. Over time the characteristics, knowledge and aspirations of enrolling students change. Especially today, with a range of career changers, adult learners and online learners from different regions, continents and cultures, we must be vigilant to monitor them to make sure we are meeting their needs.

The Florida Legislature is weighing a proposal that would begin the process of merging two of the state’s smaller colleges with two of its larger institutions. Under the plan, the New College of Florida would merge with Florida State University, while Florida Polytechnic University would combine with the University of Florida. The smaller institutions would also transfer their assets to the larger universities. The proposal makes Florida the latest state to consider merging its public institutions as a way to address enrollment declines and to help lower higher ed spending.

Development and evaluation of flipped learning using film clips within a nursing informatics course.

Jpn J Nurs Sci. 2019 Oct;16(4):385-395

Authors: Oh J, Kim SJ, Kim S, Kang KA, Kan J, Bartlett R

Abstract
AIM: To develop flipped learning classes by using film clips for undergraduate nursing students in an online nursing informatics course, based on the Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation model, and to evaluate the effectiveness and students' responses to this method of teaching.
METHODS: Sixty-four second-year nursing students participated in the course. The nursing students' knowledge was assessed at the beginning and end of each of the five classes. Moreover, their intention to recommend the classes to other students and additional comments were elicited by using semistructured questionnaires.

Trump returns to cuts in higher ed budget proposal

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Sat, 2020-02-15 01:10

Jeremy Bauer-Wolf, Education Dive

The Trump administration on Monday released its $66.6 billion budget proposal for the U.S. Department of Education, which would slash the agency’s funding by about 8%. Among its provisions, the budget plan would eliminate subsidized federal student loans and the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program. It would also open Pell Grants to students in nontraditional, short-term programs and to certain students who are incarcerated. Higher ed experts say the cuts are largely familiar from previous budget cycles and have little chance of passing Congress.
