Van Noorden (2013). The true cost of science publishing.

“… the idea that research is filtered into branded journals before it is published is not a feature but a bug: a wasteful hangover from the days of print. … could be filtered after publication using metrics such as downloads and citations, which focus not on the antiquated journal, but on the article itself …” (p 429)

Januszewski & Molenda (2013). Educational Technology: A Definition with Commentary.

“… ‘technological’ is a shorthand term that describes an approach to human activity based on the definition of technology as ‘the systematic application of scientific or other organized knowledge to practical tasks’ (Galbraith, 1967, p. 12).” (p 8)

Seaman & Tinti-Kane (2013). Social media for teaching and learning.

“Concerns about privacy, both for themselves and for their students, and about maintaining the class as a private space for free and open discussion, have been at the top of the list of concerns in all of the reports. Until faculty feel that this issue has been addressed, the wide-scale adoption of commercial social media tools in the classroom will remain limited. Concerns about the integrity of student submissions also cast a shadow on the adoption of these tools.” (p 3)

Friedman (2014). The MOOC Revolution That Wasn’t.

“Only half of those who signed up watched even one lecture, and only 4 percent stayed long enough to complete a course. Further, the audience for MOOCs already had college degrees so the promise of disrupting higher education failed to materialize. The MOOC providers argue that completion of free courses is the wrong measure of success, but even a controlled experiment run by San Jose State with paying students found the courses less effective than their old-school counterparts.”
