Videos on 50 core topics of CSCL and the Learning Sciences -- NAPLeS

The International Society of the Learning Sciences (ISLS) is currently producing about 50 videos of about 90 minutes each by researchers on CSCL and the Learning Sciences. They are available for viewing at:

This is part of the NAPLeS Project of ISLS. The Network of Academic Programs in the Learning Sciences (NAPLeS) is a network of Ph.D. and master‘s programs in the Learning Sciences. The overall mission of NAPLeS is to foster high quality Learning Sciences programs internationally through several mechanisms that support teaching and learning:
    •    Examples of syllabi used in existing Learning Sciences programs
    •    Resources prepared by renowned learning scientists on specific topics in the Learning Sciences
    •    Visiting scholarships for students to Learning Sciences programs other than their own
    •    International supervision of doctoral research
