Elgg: it’s a community effort

Harold Jarche

Another platform that I have used since its early days is Elgg , an open source social networking platform that attracted me because of its unique underlying model. We started using Elgg for an online medical community of practice in 2004 after going through dozens of platforms. The key differentiator of Elgg is that the individual is the centre of all the action. We liked Elgg so much that we paid to develop a calendar function and then gave the code to the community.

George Siemens

It’s an impressive product, defined by Google’s typical clean interface. Within our research on social network software at Athabasca University (the Elgg-based The Landing ), we (mainly Jon Dron, actually) have been looking at ways to create different representations of activity streams to meet the needs of different contexts. Elgg – with its varied activity feed – is an early implementation of Circles. I’ve been playing around with Google+.

and asked about innovation in eLearning, especially innovation that leads to products. One thing that just dawned on me is how few product vendor blogs there are in eLearning. If you look on my link roll, there's one from Articulate, elgg, ummm. Another thought just occurred to me based on my last post Innovation Geography Based and Innovation in eLearning.

The Importance of Elgg in the Future of Learning. And I’d love to run the next MOOC in Elgg. When I survey the landscape of educational tools, I come to the following conclusion: Elgg is the most important tool, currently available, in shaping the future of learning. Why Elgg?

Identifying a collaboration platform

I recently described one such platform – Elgg: it’s a community effort : Another platform that I have used since its early days is Elgg , an open source social networking platform that attracted me because of its unique underlying model.

New Technology Supporting Informal Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Software to create social networks is the logical successor to content management systems such as Drupal, and in the field of learning, the most prominent such system is Elgg.

Making Software, Making Money

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The project to which he refers, of course, is ELGG. It was crowded even when ELGG launched. Here's the question to ask: would ELGG have had any measure of success had it been subscription-based software? As open source software goes, ELGG is almost unique in its intent to create a revenue stream for its producer. Open source projects are not products intended to produce revenues. My relation with ELGG, if I am to be perfectly honest, is exactly as described.

Connectivism and Transculturality

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The system becomes clogged with the "creative product" of its members. and then they have to have some place where they can send their creative product, the things that they make, the ideas that they have. I don't wake up in the morning thinking "I want to increase the effectiveness and foster productivity of the customer base." But that's not productive of community.

Stager, Logo and Web 2.0

In fact, traditional academia and business share a great deal in common - structures, authorities, leaders, standards, scale, mass production, uniformity, and more. Moodle and Elgg , for example, adopt explicitly Constructivist theories to inform their design and development. Educators don't even fight overly restrictive and counter-productive network policies that castrate the Internet. Gary Stager offers an impressive assessment of the use of Web 2.-0
