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 ).

In a series of talks and panel discussions , the workshop first reviewed the historical patterns of technology innovations and economic cycles, and then looked at the future of work economics in three key areas: technologies and societal infrastructure; skills and jobs; and careers and quality-of-life measures. Computer Aided Design (CAD) systems, for example, enable engineers to design significantly more complex objects that they otherwise would have been able to.

I Know It When I See It : Andrew McAfee’s Blog

Established vendors of collaboration software are modifying their offerings and repositioning them as social software platforms that have all the features and functions necessary to support the new modes of interacting and getting work done. These are all activities that help patterns and structure appear, and that let the cream of the content rise to the top for all platform members, no matter how they define what the cream is. Social Media provides the bridge to cross that chasm.

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. Lamb & Johnson, 2006) Second, and less obvious, was the evolution of asynchronous communication.

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 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.

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.

To learn on that theory is therefore to acquire that pattern of organization. Buntine Oration: Learning Networks.
