Learning as Artifact Creation

George Siemens

In 2004, I tried to respond to the network/digitization alpha trend by describing the new actions and experiences that were available to learners: Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age.

Elgg: it’s a community effort

Harold Jarche

This brought me to reflect, once again, how important an open source framework is as we move more of our computing to the cloud. While Ning may be free, it is not open source, and the company can make changes at will, just like Facebook, Google or Twitter may do. It is also simple to export from WordPress.com SaaS to your own open source hosted version, which is why I strongly advise clients to use WordPress for blogging.

The practical implementation of connectivism is the massive open online course, or MOOC. The CCK08 course and all the other courses we have developed since have been based on open educational resources (OERs). I knew about open educational resources before anyone knew what the term meant. It’s open online learning generally.

The pendulum had swung far in the opposite direction when we had flower children, itinerant hippies, anti-war protests, and, more recently, the Open Source movement and the proliferation of blogs. That observation is from 2004.

The role of the teacher in this model is to practice one’s work in an open manner. This has been a challenge, I think, for pretty much all of society, but the idea here is that instead of doing your work in secret in back rooms without being open about what you do, you do your work in an open and transparent manner so that people can see what you’re doing. These are technologies that make it possible for a person to practice their discipline in an open manner.
