Becoming MOOC

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

A student who cannot navigate complex websites, search for and assess resources, or make new friends through a social network may have difficulty navigating through a cMOOC. Not everyone is a part of the network. And in order to preserve and promote self-efficacy, design is important. Other writers refer to these criteria under the heading of flow, and trace its origin to game design. Cognitive Flow: The Psychology of Great Game Design.

The 2010 IBM Global CEO Study

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

This is IBM’s fourth biennial CEO study since 2004. Technology is a second major factor contributing to growing complexity: “… creating a world that is massively interconnected, with broad-based convergence of systems of all kinds, both man-made systems like supply chains or cities; and natural systems like weather patterns or natural disasters. IBM recently released the 2010 Global CEO Study. It is also the largest.

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

To me, the theory is and always has been ‘learning networks’. This is a play on words: it is in part a theory about using networks to support learning, and in part a theory about how networks learn. It led me to propose content syndication networks in education, and to embrace social media in education. I outlined my theory in the paper ‘Learning Networks’ in 2004 [link] and George wrote his important paper also in 2004.

And the contributors constitute (a limited) social network. Invented in 2004. Ever" (What about words that are better to use, or shouldn't be used. -- think of words like that as social constructs. We've changed the social construct around that sort of behaviour. It's in looking at the traffic of where people use words and looking at what the patterns are. They are enabled by the great evolution of the link - from ARPANet to the WWW to the Social Web.

MOOC - The Resurgence of Community in Online Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

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.

The Future of Online Learning: Ten Years On

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Downes, 1998) At the time, I was working as a distance education and new media design specialist at Assiniboine Community College, and I wrote the essay to defend the work I was doing at the time. “We Bandwidth As administrators struggle against the demands video streaming and bit torrent networks place on backbones, it is hard to imagine saying that bandwidth will be unlimited. Traditional learning composed of classes and cohorts operates more as a group than as a network.

The Role of Open Educational Resources in Personal Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Learning and cognition happen in a network.And I could go on and on and on about what that means, but basically, first ofall, learning happens in your brain, your brain is composed of a network ofinterconnected neurons, and learning happens in a society, and society iscomposed of a bunch of interconnected people. And, they are networks. The second thing is, networks need to be open in order tofunction. If the communication is obstructed,this is a network failure.

There’s a Process level above this that includes meta-learning, design principles, timing, and how humans tick: things that transcend individual cases. social software apps. social network analysis. Co nnectivism, recently coined by George Siemens, makes it explicit that the learner is augmented with connections to networks of people and information. It’s new thought being wired into the brain’s network.

Free Learning and Control Learning: On the So-Called Failure of Constructivist, Discovery, Problem-Based, Experiential, and Inquiry-Based Teaching

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Connectivism is essentially, and this is my take on it not necessarily George’s, the theory that knowledge and learning can be described and explained using network principals. What I mean is: knowledge itself, to know something, is to be organized in a certain way, to have a certain pattern of connectivity in the mind, a certain neural connection in the mind. To learn on that theory is therefore to acquire that pattern of organization. Buntine Oration: Learning Networks.

Education, Technology and Myth

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I don't question if e-learning will reach a tipping point," one author confesses, "but what I [find] myself pondering is when e-learning will reach a tipping point and become a social epidemic." ( Neal e-learn 2004 , emphases added; see also Bull, Bull, Garofalo & Harris, 2002 ; Gandel, Katz, & Metros, 2004 ; Educause, 2002 ). If so, then the mathematics describing the difficusion of technology will be the same as the mathematics underlying social network theory.
