Just a brief break from the Open Learning Structure series to quote an actual promotional blurb from Blackboard:
“Ever wish you could engage your learners more without even trying?”
Yes – it actually says that. Call me old fashioned, but I remember the days when “engagement” by default meant you had to try or it just wasn’t actually engagement. But I guess the goal is a newfangled kind of learning where the instructor doesn’t even try.
Sounds good to me – collect a paycheck without lifting a finger! We can automate this whole process it seems.
