student writing: innovative online strategies for assessment & feedback The manifesto for teaching online is intended to stimulate ideas about creative online teaching. It was written by teachers and researchers in the field of online education, in connection with the MSc in E-learning programme at the University of Edinburgh. It attempts to rethink some of the orthodoxies and unexamined truisms surrounding the field. Each point is deliberately interpretable, and this page is a starting point for some of those interpretations. If you are working with the manifesto, or part of it, put a comment on our manifesto web site: or email us a link to any online content you produce - we will add a link to our site. 24 February - an article in Inside Higher Ed discusses the manifesto as a "meme".

One of the most telling examples of their gravity in search is how few legitimate competitors they have. But cataloguing and indexing humanity’s digital wares isn’t easy, especially with an entire cottage industry trying to sabotage the integrity of a search for their own personal gain (among these trends, nefarious Search Engine Optimization). That leaves education in a sticky place. To provide students with unchecked access to the internet (via Google) creates a sink-or-swim scenario that no longer works in education. The secret, then, is to let them play with digital media. Self-direct through the impossibly complex—and impossibly personal—process of knowing what you’re looking for and trying to find it. Or not being quite sure what you’re looking for, but sifting, skimming, and scrolling through it all anyway.

Most of the open courses that we’ve run so far have been geared towards experienced learners. While there does not seem to be any correlation between ‘web experience’ and success, I feel pretty comfortable in saying that there is a fair amount of correlation between ‘learning experience’ and success. Overview of the MOOC for basic skills plan Free online course teaching basic skills for success at university UPEI has funded a 30 month project exploring the possibilities of running Massive Open Online Courses to help students prepare themselves for university the year before the arrive. This year, we’ll be teaching a shortened non-credit course. What will the course look like?
