2016年春季LMS市场发生了一些显著的变化。ANGEL的数量持续减少,Canvas有不错的增长,BB则稍微下降。Moodle仍然保持稳定的第二位。

 

  • 增长最快的的LMS是Canvas。
  • Blackboard 持续的减少市场份额,而最多客户选择放弃的是 ANGEL。
  • Pearson宣布 LearningStudio’s 将于2017年末结束服务。
  • “其他”类型的系统包括少于50个应用的系统,例如Jenzabar, Edvance360, LoudCloud Systems, WebStudy, Schoology和 CampusCruiser。

Open edX2016年8月更新

学生的改进

We want your learners to focus on your course content instead of logistical details. To that end, we’ve added the ability to specify local time zones to the Account Settings page. No more mental gymnastics while learners convert from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) to their own time!

Additionally, on-the-go learners can stay up to date with the new versions of our Android and iOS apps. Version 2.5.1 for Android and version 2.5.0 for iOS allow learners to participate in course discussions as they move through course units instead of having to go to the Discussions page. These versions also include a bug fix so that learners see the number of votes their posts have received. You can download the edX app from Google Play or the App Store.

教师的改进

Course teams who want to hide exams and other content from learners after the due date are in luck! We’ve just introduced subsection hiding, which allows course teams to hide the contents of a subsection after the subsection’s due date has passed—without affecting grades. Learners can still see the titles for hidden subsections in the course navigation, but they can’t access the content. For more information, see Hide a Subsection from Learners in Building and Running an Open edX Course.

Have you ever created a text input problem in the advanced editor and left the answer attribute blank by mistake—so that learners can’t answer the problem correctly? We’ve updated Studio so that it no longer allows course teams to save a text input problem that has an empty answer attribute.

Better data leads to better courses, and we’ve updated Insights so that  enrollment information now includes specific numbers for each of the enrollment options for your course: audit, verified, verified with credit, and professional. (Courses that ended before December 2015 might also include honor code enrollments.) For more information, see Enrollment Activity in Using edX Insights.

可用的提升

As part of our commitment to make the edX platform as accessible as possible, we’ve made improvements to the website, the LMS, and Studio. We’ve organized the social media site links in the website footer into lists to help people who use screen readers. We’ve increased color contrast in both the LMS and Studio to make elements clearer. And we’ve updated the edX tabbed component to make navigating pages without a mouse easier and more intuitive.

系统管理和开发的提升

The edX engineering team has been hard at work, improving performance in loading the learner Progress page by 75% as part of improving the overall performance of computing grades—just in time for the Eucalyptus release. We’ve also made changes to validation in the coupon creation process.

If you’ve been updating your installation of Open edX with each edX release, you may have noticed that we’re transitioning the XBlockDisableConfig model and its associated settings to the XBlockConfiguration andXBlockStudioConfiguration models. This transition is still in progress. When it is complete, we will delete the XBlockDisableConfig model and associated settings. The Eucalyptus release will not include these changes.

We’ve updated our documentation to include information about popular Open edX topics. In addition to instructions for serving course assets from a content delivery network (CDN), now available in Installing, Configuring, and Running the Open edX Platform, you can find information about using the XBlock URL to render an XBlock in HTML without the LMS user interface in two places: Rendering XBlocks with the XBlock URLin the Open edX Developer’s Guide and Rendering XBlocks with the XBlock URL in the Open edX XBlock Tutorial. If you find this content useful, please drop us a line at docs@edx.org!

即将到来

We’re planning lots of improvements during August—including more updates to coupons and a streamlined About page creation process. Stay tuned!

联合国教科文组织向发展中国家推出大规模开放在线课程指南

原文链接
2016年6月16日,在巴黎联合国教科文组织总部的一场特别活动上,推出了一份面向发展中国家决策者的关于大规模开放在线课程(MOOCs)的指南。

自2012年以来,在线学习发展迅猛。这一年也被称为“MOOC年”,网上学习吸引了数以百万计的学生。然而,MOOCS的迅速崛起主要还是在我们所说的北部世界。

这个《赋予MOOCs意义,一份面向发展中国家决策者的指南》旨在提高发展中国家决策者对于在线学习问题的认识,如MOOCs怎样使获得负担得起的优质高等教育成为可能,以及怎样利用MOOCS给那些想接受学术和职业教育与培训的中学毕业生提供帮助。

由教科文组织与英联邦学术组织(COL)联合出版的这个指南也着眼于线上学习的作用,及MOOCS在教育2030议程和可持续发展目标4落实方面所扮演的角色。

在发展中国家的巨大潜力

 “MOOCs为正在寻觅新途径满足日益增长的需求的发展中国家高等教育机构带来巨大潜力。” 教科文组织项目专家和编辑之一 Mariana Patru说, “高等教育机构长期以来通过高等教育开放式教育资源(OER)这一平台来丰富网络资源。但MOOCs的迅速崛起——2015年,有4200个 MOOCs课程——已经真正对传统高等教育的格局带来了革命性的一个影响”。

教育部门总干事助理唐虔博士, COL主席和首席执行官Asha Kanwar教授主持了活动的开幕式。出席会议的还有编辑Mariana Patru女士和编辑Venkataraman Balaji博士。

The meeting explored international and country experiences in the area of open online learning and MOOCs.

会议探讨了开放式网上学习和MOOCs领域的国际和国家经验。
