How Khan Academy is using Machine Learning to Assess Student Mastery See discussion on Hacker News and Reddit. The Khan Academy is well known for its extensive library of over 2600 video lessons. It should also be known for its rapidly-growing set of now 225 exercises — outnumbering stitches on a baseball — with close to 2 million problems done each day. Blackboard Learn Today's active learner expects to be able to easily connect online with their different communities – including their education community. However, they want to keep their academic and personal lives separate. So we worked with students, educators, and administrators to develop a global learning network for Blackboard Learn.
Reed Hastings And John Doerr Put $11M In Adaptive Online Math Learning Platform DreamBox DreamBox Learning, an adaptive e-learning platform for students, has raised $11 million in new funding led by Netflix CEO Reed Hastings (who is investing through the Charter School Growth Fund), and Kleiner Perkins partner John Doerr (this is a personal investment for Doerr). GSV Capital Corp. and Deborah Quazzo also participated round. This brings DreamBox’s total funding to $18 million. Launched in 2008, DreamBox Learning offers more than 500 online math lessons, puzzles, games and curriculums for schools and home schools, targeting young students in kindergarten through fifth grade. DreamBox assesses each student’s mathematical understanding on an ongoing basis, providing the most suitable hints and encouragement at the right pace for that child, and offers the next personally appropriate activities as subsequent choices. The company also offers assessment tools for teachers to understand a student’s comprehension and proficiency.
Edmodo Promotes Blended Learning Tagged with: Blended LearningVideo When students at Meadowbrook High School were asked to show administrators how their teachers incorporate the digital world into their classes, the students chose to highlight how their teachers use Edmodo both as an instructional support tool and a tool for professional development. Rather than writing an article for the school newspaper, the students produced a video as part of their MBK411 news series. Under the direction of teacher Randy West, the students presented their video to the Chesterfield County School Board to show evidence of how teachers are incorporating blended learning into their classrooms. We’re thrilled that they also shared the video with us and we’d like to share it with the entire Edmodo Community. Big shout out to Brittany, Brenton, Jeremiah, Joseph, Maricela, Kane, Linda and Joshua for doing an amazing job producing the video!
The Ingenious Business Model Behind Coursekit, A Tumblr For Higher Education At universities, educational software largely means enterprise-scale, expensive, feature-stuffed "learning management systems." Blackboard has the majority of the market, but professors and students are about as enthusiastic about its various updates, crashes, and bugs as people are with the latest version of Windows (Blackboard scores a whopping 93% "hated" rating on website Amplicate). Last week, a new alternative was launched--built by students--that looks and works a lot more like the social platforms people actually choose to use in their spare time. The core of the site is a constantly updated social Stream where instructors and students can conduct discussions or easily post rich media. Picture a cleaner-looking Facebook news feed, centered on a single academic theme, or a group Tumblr blog where each picture, question, or video can accumulate its own discussion in the attached comment thread.
