12 Open Educational Resources: From Khan to MIT Higher education can now tap into an explosion of educational resources that are free to view, download and modify. That's disruptive to commercial textbooks, media and assessments. 1 of 15 What's massive, open and online in higher education? It's not just the MOOCs, those massive open online courses causing such an uproar by enrolling 100,000 or more in a single class and trying to show how higher education can scale to the masses. MOOCs are a novel education opportunity for students who might never set foot inside a university classroom, but they are descended from another open online phenomenon with the potential to help students both online and off.

The Evolving LMS Market, Part II I have gotten a lot of very nice compliments in the last 24 hours about the first post in this two-part series. I do want to emphasize that a huge portion of the value in that post comes from the great survey work that Casey Green does. All I did was tease out a few implications and make a few new graphs (which, I admit, were very pretty). If you want to see analysis like this continue in future years, then support the Campus Computing Project.

Open Educational Resources (OER): Resource Roundup Resources by Topic: OER, a part of the global open content movement, are shared teaching, learning, and research resources available under legally recognized open licenses -- free for people to reuse, revise, remix, and redistribute. Why are OER important? High-quality OER can save teachers significant time and effort on resource development and advance student learning inside and outside the classroom. Further, open sharing of resources has the potential to fuel collaboration, encourage the improvement of available materials, and aid in the dissemination of best practices. It’s a Rainbow! – Color Changing Text and Backgrounds w/ jQuery Here’s a quick and easy way to cycle between multiple colors smoothly. Normally you would define the (background) color in the CSS and that would be the end of it. In this case we want to be able to adjust colors after the page has loaded, and not just once either – we’re aiming for continuous adjustments. The lovely part about this whole thing is the small about of jQuery required to make it all happen. What You Will Learn

Certification Tests: School of Education, Indiana University Bloomington Information about Certification Tests Over half a million people worldwide have passed a Certification Test in the past 5 years.

The test taker must determine whether the student version is word-for-word plagiarism, paraphrasing plagiarism, or not plagiarism. If you pass, your Certificate will be e-mailed to you, and you can view your Certificate online.

The Evolving LMS Market, Part I -e-Literate As Casey Green said in my recent interview with him, the LMS space is a “market in transition.” In 2005, the year that Blackboard acquired WebCT, the two platforms had a combined total of 75.6% U.S. higher education market share, and the next closest competitor had barely cracked 2% market share. Today, the situation is substantially different and changing rapidly. But the narratives around exactly what’s happening tend to be off. Typically, I hear the frame as being a contest between Blackboard and “open source.” Has “open source” (by which we mean Moodle and Sakai, the two open source LMSs with significant market share in the United States) made inroads into the market? .css() Description: Set one or more CSS properties for the set of matched elements. As with the .prop() method, the .css() method makes setting properties of elements quick and easy. This method can take either a property name and value as separate parameters, or a single object of key-value pairs.

HTML Ref » Reference » Appendix E » Color Names and Numerical Equivalents Table E-3 lists all the color names commonly supported by the major browsers (Netscape 3.0 and better through Netscape 7, Internet Explorer 3.0 and better, Opera 6 and better). The HTML specification defines sixteen named colors (aqua, black, blue, fuchsia, gray, green, lime, maroon, navy, olive, purple, red, silver, teal, white, and yellow). (Out of these colors, only seven are considered safe in the reproduction sense discussed previously.) Many other color names have been introduced by the browser vendors -particularly Netscape- and are fairly commonly used.
