Anticipating the Next Wave of Experience Design

John Hagel

Design: our barriers

Clark Quinn

When it comes to problem solving, (and we can think of design as problem-solving as well as search), we have certain behaviors that predispose us to certain types of solutions (in other words, prematurely limiting our search space). Functional fixedness is really just about not seeing new applications of a tool.

Innovation in open online courses

George Siemens

Since MOOCs gained popularity with top tier universities, significant effort has been put into finding new ways to present learning content. In terms of content presentation, DALMOOC will pale in comparison to existing well-funded courses. Many MOOCs reflect a structured and linear process of content presentation. Persistence.

Outlining vs. Formatting
