Version 1.1 - Your Feedback helped shape our site

Many thanks to so many of our colleagues and visionaries who shared feedback with us over the past few weeks to help us improve Huddle Up. We're thrilled to say we just released version 1.1 and added the following improvements. Streamline the "Join a Project" process. (It's now a one-click experience) Adding a customizable rubric so that Project Leaders can foster peer evaluation by editing the criteria and descriptors. Minimizing text and adding video submissions. User notifications to alert each participant of incoming feedback or direct messages. A revised Project Homepage to track progress of the cohort collectively, and strengthen each team member's accountability. A Sandbox Project is added to each new user's Dashboard allowing exploration of the platform.  We've created two videos to give you a glimpse of our new release for 2022. Like what you see?

The Evolution of Online Learning: Four Stages and What's Next?

The pandemic has made everyone far more knowledgeable about online learning platforms than they were 24 months ago. We each know (and feel) the strengths and the limitations of more than a few platforms.  We each have a long and growing list of features we want to see in the next evolution of online learning.  So, it seems a rather good time to step back and explore the evolution of online learning - to see how far we've come, and where we might be heading. One of the best resources out there is a simple progression chart shared in this intriguing article by Tiago Forte. The Future of Education is Community: The Rise of Cohort-Based Courses The evolution of online learning: What's next? We love big-picture reflections like this.

We're Running Faster, But It's The Wrong Race

It's clear that the pandemic has changed our entire outlook on online learning. Certainly, online learning is an essential part of what we do - but recent experiences shed light on the problems that exist within it. Online learning, as it exists today, has had a rough time of it.  (This article has minor edits since it was published in  Ed Tech Digest .) We found frustrated, isolated students. We found instructors working increased hours in order to maintain a sense of a classroom community and develop the higher-order skills that could be practiced far more often in our face-to-face environments. Throughout the pandemic, the missing pieces in our online learning were far more apparent. Our earlier infatuation soured; it became apparent we needed more.  Initially, we embraced the efficiency of online education. It delivered learning to many.

Huddle Up with Entrepreneurs

There is a need in the current landscape of Entrepreneurship Education for meaningful, real-world collaboration and problem-solving.  "At this point, it’s clear that entrepreneurship education, as it’s currently practiced, does not work," says Andrew Yang in his article critiquing Entrepreneurship Education.  We need to reimagine the current state of Entrepreneurship Education to be "action-based, not knowledge-based."  Yang continues by relating the study of Entrepreneurship to "an athletic endeavor, like serving a tennis ball.  Telling you how to do it is useless.  You actually get better through a combination of practice, coaching, and repetitions."  Along with the need for hands-on, real-world training, more students than ever are interested in starting their own businesses.  "With student interest in new business creation on the rise, the future for higher education is likely to be far brighter than it seems. Research shows that, in the heart of
