Using Social Media to Enhance Students' Learning Experiences

by Griesemer, James A. ;

Quality Approaches in Higher Education Vol. 3 (1) Feb 2012 article by James A. Griesemer. This article focuses on continuing efforts using social media to enhance undergraduate business students’ learning experiences. My college makes an online course management system (CMS) and training available to instructors, but leaves its use to the instructor for traditional courses. I use the CMS’s features such as bulletin boards, wikis,and online meetings and also incorporate other tools like blogs, podcasts, really simple syndication (RSS), and Twitter. Although incorporating social media into a course requires considerable time and effort, the results to date have exceeded expectations.

In-Class Versus Interactive Television Instruction

A Study to Determine Comparability

by Robinson, Christine; Plum, David;

Quality Approaches in Higher Education Vol 3 (1) Feb 2012 article by David Plum and Christine Robinson. The economic factors and convenience advantages of interactive television (ITV) classes are well known. The question remains, however, as to the effectiveness of ITV instruction versus traditional in-class, face-to-face instruction. This study provides a statistical comparison of the relative effectiveness of three approaches: traditional face-to-face instruction, face-to-face instruction combined with originating an ITV class, and remote ITV-recipient classes. Final grade performance was analyzed using several different models and tests, with care taken to screen out controllable variables to the extent possible. Results failed to detect a significant positive or negative impact on grades due to ITV instruction.
