Projects: Kentucky Educators First to Web with Middle School and High School Online Learning
The Kentucky Migrant Technology Project (KMTP) has posted forty online courses on the Internet. The courses cover subject matter across the core curriculum areas of mathematics, English, science, social studies, arts and humanities, and practical living for students in grades 6–12. The subscriber-based-model classes are available to all students, parents, and teachers to use as primary or supplementary classroom material. Pricing information can be found on the Web site at www.migrant.org. This project marks the first time that entire middle school and high school curricula are freely accessible on the Web.
Brief Report: The Instructor Experience of Fully Online Tertiary Mathematics: A Challenge and an Opportunity
Sven Trenholm, Lara Alcock, and Carol Robinson
As part of a dramatic recent shift in tertiary education, many undergraduate students now learn mathematics via fully online courses. At present, the mathematics education research community knows very little about this shift, and in this report, we consider implications of an investigation into the instructor experience of fully online undergraduate mathematics courses. To compare instructor experiences of fully online and face-to-face teaching, we explored assessment schemes, feedback processes, and approaches to teaching using a survey and semistructured interviews. The main emergent theme was instructor concern about the loss of short-cycle face-to-face human interaction. We argue that this concern is serious but should be seen as an opportunity for education researchers to leverage knowledge about effective mathematics teaching to simultaneously alleviate instructors' difficulties and promote and study pedagogical development.
