4434Teaching at an Internet Distance: the Pedagogy of Online
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=89957
This document is the product of the University of Illinois Teaching at an Internet Distance Seminar. The group met throughout 1998-99 to study the pedagogy of online learning, to examine what made teaching to be good teaching, whether in the classroom or online, and to suggest how online teaching and learning can be done with high quality at the University of Illinois.Research Methods Knowledge Base
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=80423
The Research Methods Knowledge Base is a comprehensive web-based textbook that addresses all of the topics in a typical introductory undergraduate or graduate course in social research methods. It covers the entire research process including: formulating research questions; sampling (probability and nonprobability); measurement (surveys, scaling, qualitative, unobtrusive); research design (experimental and quasi-experimental); data analysis; and, writing the research paper. It also addresses the major theoretical and philosophical underpinnings of research including: the idea of validity in research; reliability of measures; and ethics. The Knowledge Base was designed to be different from the many typical commercially-available research methods texts. It uses an informal, conversational style to engage both the newcomer and the more experienced student of research. It is a fully hyperlinked text that can be integrated easily into an existing course structure or used as a sourcebook for the experienced researcher who simply wants to browse.

http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=81833
VideoPaper Builder 3 (VPB3) is a software application for use in creating VideoPapers. It is a free, easy-to-use authoring tool that generates HTML documents viewable with any Internet browser and QuickTime viewer. The VideoPaper is ideal for the production, use, and dissemination of educational research. In a VideoPaper, classroom or interview-filmed episodes can be displayed and synchronized with interpretations, transcriptions, closed captions, images of student work, clarifying diagrams, or other pieces of information that expand the events, portraying their full complexity. Teachers, researchers and other communities interested in video-based dissemination can use VideoPapers to make their conversations more grounded in actual events, more insightful, and more resistant to oversimplifications.The Jigsaw Method A Cooperative Learning Strategy
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=565931
The Jigsaw Method is a cooperative learning strategy in which groups of students become experts in different subjects, then teach other students what theyve learned. The strategy enhances learning, retention, and engagement.Encouraging Mathematical Thinking, Discourse around a Rich Problem
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=88039
This videopaper by the Math Forum's Bridging Research and Practice Group (BRAP) of teacher practitioners and Math Forum Staff opens a conversation around the use of discourse as a basis for encouraging students' mathematical thinking and supporting teachers' professional growth. Reflecting an attempt to integrate practice and research, it reports on findings culled from discussions of research articles and chapters, classroom practice, and videotapes of classroom teaching, noting links between these findings and research into student learning and instruction. Video clips from the teachers' classrooms illustrate the interventions discussed; a challenge problem and lessons for various levels are detailed; corresponding student predictions are presented; and readers' reactions and input are encouraged throughout.A Brief Guide to Questionnaire Development
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=79145
Most people have responded to so many questionnaires in their lives that they have little concern when it becomes necessary to construct one of their own. Unfortunately the results are often unsatisfactory. A reason for this outcome may be that many of the questionnaires in current use have deficiencies which are consciously or unconsciously incorporated into new questionnaires by inexperienced developers. This web page is intended to identify some of the more prevalent problems in questionnaire development and to suggest ways of avoiding them. The focus is on questionnaires designed to collect factual information and opinions.Correlational Analysis
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=823819
Finally, a clear, demystified approach to learning educational statistics. A narrative, along with videos, output data sets and sample data sets. The video presentations are the focus and will be especially helpful for guiding the learner through the process of conducting statistical analyses using SPSS and interpreting SPSS output data.Education Presentations Archive
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=84929

http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=85274
This tools shows you how to calculate the value of Cohen's d and the effect size correlation in one of two ways: (1) using the means and standard deviations of two groups (treatment and control) or (2) using the t test value for a between subjects t test and the degrees of freedom.Linear Regression
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=823727
The third volume in a series of Advanced Educational Statistics, Linear Regression maintains the no nonsense teaching methodology for learning educational statistics. A narrative, along with videos, output data sets and sample data sets are included. As with previous volumes in the series, the video presentations are the focal point and will be especially helpful for guiding the learner through the process of conducting statistical analyses using SPSS and interpreting SPSS output data.A companion iBook is available for free from the iTunes Bookstore: https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/linear-regression/id656969487?mt=13
