The Future IMS Learning Design

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The Future IMS Learning Design What is the future of learning design? Joel Greenberg My own personal view: maybe the world is moving on, and maybe the idea of 'design' is a bit old fashioned. Instead of trying to systematize, to sequence, a more appropriate approach is based around patterns and connections. The idea is to lead academics to a lightweight narrative, and having them design around it. It was started in 2001, and the main spec came out in 2003.

Where I’m coming from

Jay Cross

Here’s how I saw it in 2001: PEOPLE. Our brains seek patterns, often finding one when it’s not intentionally there. Seek patterns. Crafty designers put them way down in posts so you could read the start of a post while the images were gradually appearing on screen.

My Watershed Moments

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I began to see how networks, whether of individuals of cells, could take shape, form patterns, act with purpose. And I also had a history in graphic design, working first with wax-and-paper based layout and design, and then tools like Quark xPress , to create pages, posters and more.

Like a first time runner, groups “heartbeats&# have to be faster at first to build relationships, establish norms and patterns of interaction. So if your goal was to design a lesson for 10th graders on Beethoven, ask them to design the perfect lesson where students would learn nothing.

Hence, a MOOC is to my mind, defined along the following four dimensions: [slide 3 – massive] Massive - here I mean not necessarily the success of the MOOC in attracting many people, but in the design elements that make educating many people possible. In practice, what this means is a system designed so that bottlenecks are not created in any of the four attributes: modeling, demonstration, practice, and reflection. but also to be involved in the design of these.
