The Mind of Melody
This is going to be place for me to share my thoughts and resources I find relevant to the online education and the issues surrounding this area. My focus is higher education and my work centers around instructional design and technology. However, I am a curious soul and love to explore other ares. You might say "I like to chase squirrels or shiny new objects" and with this in mind, I might stray from the path. My goal is to post at least once a week.
It is the summer of 2020 and the world has gone a bit crazy in my humble opinion. Here are some of the topics on my mind at the moment:
Remote Education vs Online Education
Online Proctoring vs. Authentic Assessment
Digital Badges, Certificates and Micro-credentials
The Digital Divide in Higher Education
Competency Based Education
Artificial Intelligence and Analytics
I am sure this list will expand and change over time. I am looking forward to this wandering journey. I hope you will join me on this little blog adventure.
Picture: This is from my trip to Ireland to attend the 28th ICDE World Conference on Online Learning in Fall 2019. I had one free afternoon to sneak off to tour the Guinness Brewery and partake of this iconic beer!
