__The Alchemy of Color and Chemical Change in Medieval Manuscripts. Some of the most vivid pigments in medieval manuscripts were manufactured through alchemy, an experimental practice that predates modern chemistry. Today, chemistry deepens our knowledge about paint colors, their identification, and potential continued transformations.

A great event recap from the Open Education Strategy Forum for B.C. post-secondary institutions held in Vancouver last week.

BCcampus hosts its first Open Education Strategy Forum

BCcampus hosts its first Open Education Strategy Forum

open.bccampus.ca
On October 6, 2016, BCcampus hosted the first provincial Open Education Strategy Forum in Vancouver, B.C. The event sought to engage representatives from provincial post-secondary education (PSE) institutions in meaningful and relevant conversations about how open educational policy can pave the way for the sustainable and innovative practice of open pedagogy.
Guest speaker Daniel DeMarte, Vice President for Academic Affairs & Chief Academic Officer at Tidewater Community College, who worked with our own Amanda Coolidge to develop the OER Policy Development Tool, closed the day with a great reminder that there’s no advantage to re-inventing the wheel when it comes to policy development. Daniel shared policy examples from Tidewater Community College and encourage everyone to use the OER Policy Development Tool to generate their own institutional policies with just a few mouse clicks.

Participants worked in small groups organized by institution to explore two topics:

  • How can open educational practices align with the institutional strategic direction
  • The barriers that exist at each institution when it comes to creating Open Education policy

__Lumen Learning is a one-and-only, a monopoly for-profit company within the education sector. The strategy of the fascinating business model rolls-out with this Faculty Forum and Lumen Learning’s OER Policy Development Tool, and it will eventually blip on the radar of business case writers and marketing sector journalists.

__Learning in the Digital Age, The Conference Board of Canada free report _ Executive Summary snips – There are about 1.3 million enrollments in fully online university and college courses in Canada. E-learning accounts for between 10 and 15 per cent of PSE learning. Greater adoption of e-learning will happen if institutional focus on traditional classroom delivery can be reduced; faculty are adequately supported when they teach online; and e-learning design, development, and delivery practices improve.

Robin DeRosa’s great Ignite Talk DML2016 on open education.
In 5 short minutes she connects the various strands of open education (open access, open educational resources, and open pedagogy) to the broader societal mandate of our public institutions, which is to serve the public good. And while Robin is based in the US, the main thesis of her talk is applicable to anyone working in public education anywhere.

Cut Student Costs and Improve Learning

Michael Hale – VP Sales at VitalSource Technologies]
What would happen if learning materials were provided to all students on or before the first day of class? If all required learning materials, including textbooks, were provided to all students on or before the first day of class, the average price per student of learning materials would drop and students would be more successful.

__Ideally, all Faculty syllabi help students seeking savings by offering them options to the recommended reading materials via a comprehensive list of reviewed and rated alternative commercial textbook editions and/or free OER. Consider the ways that Students and TA’s can help their Faculty by doing the time consuming research throughout the course of the semester to discover these alternative commercial and free educational resources to be Faculty-vetted and listed as options within their Syllabus.

__Print Marketing v Digital Marketing: “Digital messages require 21 per cent more cognitive effort to process and retain than physical messages. Unaided brand recall for a physical message stood at 75 per cent versus only 44 per cent for digital. The paper message elicited a 20 per cent higher motivation response.” Note: St. Joseph Communications 2017 Print in a Digital World trend report to be released at the end of this month. __

Physical mail marketing still has plenty to offer advertisers

Physical mail marketing still has plenty to offer advertisers

theglobeandmail.com

Physical mail fills a much-needed, and very human, sensory deficit in the virtual world, where we spend most of our time these days. While people love talking to Alexa (Amazon’s latest gadget) to order whatever they are running short on, they notice and retain a lot more of a paper promotional offer than they would from a purely digital message.

The most important renaissance in advertising has gone largely unnoticed. In their race to find the next big breakthrough, marketers didn’t stop to realize that paper catalogues and marketing mail are emerging as an effective tool, even to engage digital natives.

Rutgers University Libraries Provide Relief for Soaring Textbook Costs

news.rutgers.edu
Rutgers University has become the first of New Jersey’s institutions of higher education to formally take action against the rising cost of textbooks by launching the Open and Affordable Textbook Project (OAT). The initiative includes a grant program administered by Rutgers University Libraries that will give incentives to faculty or department groups that replace a traditional textbook with a free, low-cost or open alternative. This program has the potential to save students across the university as much as $500,000 within its first year.

__Rafter360 relied on a business model that made the college its customer. After contracting with the institution, it would deliver all required books and materials for every course so that students would have them by the first day of classes. The cost was a flat per-student fee — reportedly in the range of $600 to $800 a year — that the college would collect from all students either as part of their tuition or as part of an extra student fee.

Why website body text should be bigger, and ways to optimize it.

Body text is the key component in communicating the main bulk of a message or story, and it’s probably the most important element on a website, even if people sometimes read just the headlines.

Why would we limit the effectiveness of body text by minimizing its size to a browser-default that’s now over 20 years old, even on large displays?

Are online access codes the new textbook monopoly?

__Gaining access to ones online purchase of a digital resource via PIN / Code / Proof of Purchase is a conventional ecommerce practice – it’s not an evil plot by vendors of digital products. In the Access Denied report, The Student PIRGs have siezed upon ‘Access Codes’ as proof of evil-doing and I suggest that OER advocates aren’t telling the whole story or the whole truth about the industry’s transition to digital resources. . . however, that’s the OER advocate / lobbyist’s job, and one could see that as evil-doing. PS Laura Devaney – it could be worth your journalistic research efforts to source and publish evidence of Student PIRGs’ claims of Publishers’ ‘high profits’.

__Phil Hill recognizes there are many unasked survey questions which leads one to wonder “Is OER at a tipping point and about to move beyond the high-potential but low adoption status quo?” The sooner that Faculty and Students actually use OER, the better, since, as with any ‘new’ consumer product, personal experiences using OER will inform the way forward – Emerging Demographics incl. Loyal OER users versus those who have tried OER and found reasons to opt out – etc _

Phil Hill - About That Cengage OER Survey

Phil Hill – About That Cengage OER Survey

mfeldstein.com

Last month Cengage Learning released a white paper titled “Open Educational Resources (OER) and the Evolving Higher Education Landscape” where the headline called out expected increases in OER adoption:

Open Educational Resources (OER) in higher education have the potential to triple in use as primary courseware over the next five years, from 4 percent to 12 percent, according to a survey of more than 500 faculty by Cengage Learning. In addition, the use of OER for supplemental learning materials may nearly quadruple in size, from 5 percent to 19 percent.

The 4 percent adoption of OER as primary courseware aligns with the Babson Survey Research Group (BSRG) finding of 5.3% using open textbooks (yes, we’re assuming the terms are interchangeable at least for the survey results). But the expectation that OER adoption may triple for primary usage and quadruple for supplemental is new. The BSRG did not estimate market growth – they just identified perceptions and barriers.
