“Educational technology can be a key component of success, but only if it leverages the results and methodologies of learning science …” (p 73)
“Many colleges, universities and Open Educational Resource providers have rushed to provide an online presence with little consideration of how online materials would be used to create an effective learning experience …” (p 73)
“… technology is being used to provide lower-cost access to the service of lecturing but that is not, ultimately, the most important service provided by higher education. … Our understanding of human learning from the last 20 years of research tells us that learning is an active, not a passive process and simply providing lectures is not sufficient.” (p 74)
“… we need to create better theories of learning, which inform both teaching practice and the design of educational technology. To develop better theories, we need more data from more students in more contexts.” (p 74)
“The ‘Learning Dashboard’ is a tool that provides instructors detailed reports about what their class has mastered by working in the OLI environment and which concepts and skills will need more attention in class.” (p 76)
“… OLI researchers are also studying the conditions and impact of OLI use on faculty and institutions.” (p 76)
“Ideally, the technology should build the mechanisms for assessing both student achievement and the effectiveness of the instructional intervention directly into the teaching and learning process.” (p 77)
