If There Was Already an Ocean of Data in 2007, How Much is there Now?

Andy McAfee

So I decided to (poorly) imitate his methodology and try to seriously answer the question posed in the title of this post – if there was already an ocean of data in the world in 2007, how much more ‘datawater’ was there in 2013? I chose 2007 for no particularly good reason.

What Connectivism Is

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Posted to the Connectivism Conference forum (which hits a login window - click 'login as guest' (middle of the left-hand column) - I'm sorry, and I have already complained to the conference organizer). At its heart, connectivism is the thesis that knowledge is distributed across a network of connections, and therefore that learning consists of the ability to construct and traverse those networks.

Why the Semantic Web Will Fail

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Don't get too excited by the title. But I do want to share a few thoughts. It was running through my head just now, the work that we were doing here in Moncton to work on an e-learning cluster. Because I saw that 'cluster building' is still one of the major pillars of NRC's strategy, and I was wondering whether our work would ever be a part of that again. And I was thinking about some of the things that didn't go so well in our first few years.

Flash Quiz Tools

Tony Karrer

Update June 2008 - added one free flash quiz tool based on a question I received. This tool is listed at the bottom. A client wanted to create online quizzes that would live inside of a larger site. They didn't really need tracking of user responses, instead they wanted them to be fun. I suggested a couple of tools, but then wondered if I had given them the best list of tools. So, the eLearningGuild research again to the rescue.
