Formation en ligne Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. La formation en ligne, terme recommandé en France par la DGLFLF[1], ou encore : l'apprentissage en ligne (au Canada), l'e-formation ou l'e-learning, désignent l'ensemble des solutions et moyens permettant l'apprentissage par des moyens électroniques. La formation en ligne inclut ainsi des sites web éducatifs, la téléformation, l'enseignement télématique, ou encore l'e-training, notamment. La formation en ligne est une des technologies de l'information et de la communication pour l'éducation (TICE), intégrée dans la cyberculture[2].

Plates-formes de e-learning - 2012 Le répertoire des plates-formes de e-formation, LMS, LCMS et autres systèmes de gestion de contenu et de parcours de formation est séparé en trois catégories: plates-formes open-source,plates-formes publiques ou gratuites etplates-formes commerciales. Certaines de ces plates-formes sont très coûteuses, d’autres sont capables de transformer votre serveur en campus virtuel pour quelques centaines de dollars ou d’euros seulement; ensuite viennent les frais d'adaptation, d’entretien, de gestion et autres. Évolution Après un sommet de près de 300 plates-formes en 2004, une consolidation a eu lieu, mais nous constatons cette année une reprise de la croissance du nombre de plate-formes. Même si nous ne prétendons pas à l'exhaustivité, nous avons été surpris par la qualité et le nombre de nouveaux joueurs, plus de 40, ce qui a largement compensé les disparitions, une quinzaine. Ce qui s’en vient Bien des développements sont encore à venir ! Réservé aux abonnés de l'édition intégrale :

Notre Dame launches eReader study “This has become known as the iPad class,” Corey Angst, assistant professor of management at the University of Notre Dame, told his students on their first day of class Aug. 24. “It’s actually not…it’s ‘Project Management.’” A member of Notre Dame’s ePublishing Working Group, Angst is debuting the University’s first and only class taught using Apple’s new wireless tablet computer to replace traditional textbooks. The course is part of a unique, year-long Notre Dame study of eReaders, and Angst is conducting the first phase using iPads, which just went on sale to the public in April. “One unique thing we are doing is conducting research on the iPad,” Angst says. “eReaders are quickly being adopted for reading mass market literature, but also align well with the desire of higher education faculty and students to promote sustainability by reducing paper use,” says Paul Turner, manager of Academic Technologies in Notre Dame’s Office of Information Technologies. And they don’t have to sneak.

Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies Michael Gove speaks to the Royal Society - The Department for Education Michael Gove speaks to the Royal Society on maths and science Introduction Ladies and gentleman, I feel a little nervous in these surroundings. I am a journalist by profession, a politician by accident and a historian in my dreams. I am, therefore, in all too many ways, poorly equipped to address an audience of the nation’s most distinguished mathematicians and scientists. But, in advancing the argument I want to make today, history is perhaps more of an aid than it might at first appear. For some, like Karl Marx, the driving force in history was always economics. For others, like Edward Gibbon, it was theology More recently some have argued that history is driven by evolutionary biology or geography or simple demography. But the truth, as I suspect everyone in this room knows, is that history is driven, above all, by mathematics and the power it gives us to understand, predict and control the world. Falling behind A 21st century curriculum So, what should we concentrate on? Conclusion
