Many attendees, however, were interested to hear more about rumblings of the company’s expanded data analytics, AI capabilities, and predictive modeling, which have been developed in a working project known as DIG. The effort was announced at the last earnings call. eLearning Inside sat down with Instructure CEO Dan Goldsmith for comment.This episode is also available in podcast form on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, and Stitcher.

Technology and screens are making an increasing impact on the North American classroom—often for the better. But as teachers and students rely more and more on technology for the task of learning, it makes time spent outside of the classroom and away from mobile devices all the more important. Summer, and summer camp, offer a great opportunity to make that happen. A survey published by Screen Education, a non-profit dedicated to researching mobile device use, has discovered that most teens who attend camp recognize this. A large majority—93%—said they experienced a sense of relief after leaving their phones and social media at home.This episode is also available in podcast form on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, and Stitcher.

Sampling accounts and stories of dozens instances from around the country, this article is going to provide a rundown of some primary topics, issues, and concerns that revolve around providing students their own classroom devices.

Spurred largely by aspects of No Child Left Behind (NCLB), the use of online credit recovery courses has exploded in many U.S. districts. Provided mostly by for-profit vendors, they allow students who fail courses to make them up—often on a much shorter schedule and at their convenience. Two researchers from Vanderbilt University, Professor Carolyn Heinrich and PhD candidate Jennifer Darling-Aduana, have been investigating the use of online credit recovery courses at an urban Midwestern school district since the 2010-11 school year. They have recently put out a working paper describing their findings. This episode is also available in podcast form on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, and Stitcher.

What if you let a class of elementary school learners wander around a geopark with augmented reality (AR)-equipped devices to learn about geology? Would they learn more effectively than a traditional class? And how would students with different learning styles fare? These are some of the questions a team of Taiwanese researchers asked in a recently published study titled “Do Learning Styles Matter? Motivating Learners in an Augmented Geopark.” This episode is also available in podcast form on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, and Stitcher.

While some hybrid degrees are gaining in popularity in fields such as nursing and law, these mostly demarcate courses between remote and in-person. But what if the same class—and not just the same class content—could be taught to both in-person and remote students at the same time? Jimmy Giliberti, general manager of Number 9, a VR development company, has been thinking about scenarios like these for some time. Number 9 operates as a subsidiary of the Glimpse Group, an umbrella company that brings together VR and AR expertise across numerous fields. Along with another company, Foretell, Giliberti has recently developed Project Chimera, a VR presentation solution that brings together live and remote audiences and presenters in the same space.

As more research emerges about the efficacy of online courses, it becomes increasingly clear that course design must conform to context. A recent study by Devayan Debashis Bir of Iowa State University’s Department of Aerospace Engineering investigated the outcomes of an introductory engineering online course versus a face-to-face equivalent. “Comparison of academic performance of students in online vs traditional engineering course” appeared in EURODL this month.This episode is also available in podcast form on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, and Stitcher.
