Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

To support this contention, he cites three studies, providing references for none of them, but all of which, he asserts, find no correlation between poor eating habits and obesity.

That we hurt developing nations, for example, if we give them knowledge for free. The dumping of free food on a nation, for example, prices food below the level of sustinance for local farmers, in effect killing the local farming industry. After the Tsunami, for example, it was common for governments to refuse certain types of aid for precisely this reason.

Greasemonkey

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Inspired by Google's AutoLink feature the script basically gives users the capacity to change the content of web pages on the fly - not the text so much (though the 'Michael Jackson remover' is sure to be a hit with news readers tired of that sort of pap) as the code that controls the page display. Discussion has turned to the malicious uses of Greasemonkey - for example, to steal cookies or launch DDOS attacks.

Belief

In addition to LOM, the consortium designed Content Packaging, to bundle sets of learning objects for storage and delivery, and sequencing and design specifications, to organize them into courses.

What blogging was

David Weinberger

For example, the blogosphere (remember when that was word?) It says something about the strength of our community that it was only in 2005 that I wrote a post titled No, I’m not keeping up with your blog. Because it was assumed that a successful blog needed new posts every day or so, content for blogs tended to be shorter and more tentative than content in newsletters.

Blogs in Education

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

A blog is a personal website that contains content organized like a journal or a diary. Authors typically upload a wide range of multimedia content such as art to sites like Deviantart , videos to hosting services such as YouTube , slide shows and PDFs to SlideShare and photos to sites like Flickr.

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The cheating hasn't stopped with this 2005 article, and it's not limited to the U.S. Cheating occurs when they perform something other than the intended task in order to produce the result - copying answers, for example, in order to achieve higher grades than they would have earned on their own. But assessing students in this way, far from measuring putative 'content knowledge', is really an exercise in counting without any real interest in what is being counted.

Sustainability and MOOCs in Historical Perspective

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Distance learning therefore required the creation and distribution of learning content, of course packages that would support independent study. The other basis for online learning is the traditional classroom, learning that we all grew up with, where there is a class, a cohort of students, who go through a body of content or a curriculum, who interact with each other when they conduct activities and conduct projects. We see the content side, and we see the interactivity side.

The phenomenon of ''wrapped MOOCs'' will be described, and Downes will outline several examples of local support for global MOOCs.

Despite set-backs – for example, the lobbies by private corporations to prevent the deployment of municipal Wi-Fi – it is not unreasonable to expect that inexpensive wireless broadband will be ubiquitous in most populated areas. The Java Virtual machine (JVM) is one example of this, but so also are the ‘images’ produced by virtualization software such as VMWare or Parallels. The best example of this may be seen at the Flickr website. O'Reilly, 2005) Web 2.0

Back when tags were budding

David Weinberger

I just came across an article from my old JOHO newsletter, from May 2005, that I wrote for Esther Dyson’s Reality 1.0. For example: In the physical world, a fruit can hang from only one branch. When it comes to innovation on the Internet, metadata is becoming the new content. It was titled Trees and Tags— An Introduction , and it was about the limitations of taxonomies and the rise of tags.
