Notes from 2006

Harold Jarche

Tweet 2006. I reviewed my notes from 2004 as well as notes from 2005 last January, so now it’s time to review my half-baked ideas from 2006. Near the end of 2006, I concluded that in our networked world, modelling how to learn is a better strategy than shaping on a pre-defined curriculum. What good are notes if you don’t review them from time to time?

Adaptive Path

I’m neck-deep on a project looking at the future of media. Of the many threads to pursue is just what is going on with television — TV on your PC, web on your TV, television content across three (or is it now four?) screens, etc. Frankly, the landscape is a bit of a mess. It’s reminiscent of the world of digital photography circa 2004. People were taking pictures not just with digital cameras (which surpassed film cameras in sales that year) but with cameraphones as well.

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Introduction: Four Types of Discursive Writing From time to time people express amazement at how I can get so much done. I, of course, aware of the many hours I have idled away doing nothing, demur. It feels like nothing special; I don't work harder, really, than most people. Nonetheless, these people do have a point. I am, in fact, a fairly prolific writer. Part of it is tenacity.

Lower Value of Online Degree Programs?

Tony Karrer

The post: eLearning Technology: Online Programs that Offer Training in eLearning? has provided some interesting results around online programs - and a really interesting question: How do employers view online degree programs? If you are going to spend the money and time upgrading your skills, you want to make sure the employer will recognize them. I am very curious what other people think about this. I personally hire mostly folks with undergraduate degrees and mostly they are technical.
