How Do You Know? (2)

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

These are hard questions. What I described in my paper is my best answer to the question 'how do I know', that is, it tries to explain how I (in fact) know things. It is therefore not a description of the criteria I should use to distinguish truth from falsity, nor how one person can convince another person of something. Wealth of experience?

How Do You Know?

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I have just finished a presentation to the British Council consisting of a video and a short discussion. I'm not happy with the result - partially because the process of producing the video seemed to be cursed (including one crash that wiped out hours of work - Camtasia has no autosave! who knew?) But I'm less sanguine about the discourse. Believe?

Learning and Ownership

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Responding to Tony Karrer : Good post and a useful summary. First. You write, "Clearly a corporation has a reasonable expectation that work done while they are paying you should be done on their behalf. They should have rights to the end work product."
