Blogs in Education

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

What is a Blog? A blog is a personal website that contains content organized like a journal or a diary. Readers catch up with blogs by starting at the top and reading down until they encounter material they’re already read. Though blogs are typically thought of as personal journals, there is no limit to what may be covered in a blog. While the earliest blogs were created by hand, blogging becam widely popular with the advent of blog authoring tools.

Tool Set 2009

Tony Karrer

The information in this series has been something I've been presenting, writing, blogging about and more recently doing workshops around. But hopefully 2009 will be the year when that begins to change. If you care about being relevant and valuable in 2015, you had better be making moves in 2009. Recommendations The intent of this series is to capture my thinking at the start of 2009 about the tools and methods for work and learning.

The Standalone LMS is Dead

Dan Pontefract

This past week, I attended the SharePoint 2009 conference in Las Vegas. I’ll provide some feedback on that particular release in another blog posting (read Bill Simser for now) but what the conference itself got me thinking about was that, thankfully, the standalone LMS is definitely going to become redundant. Facebook for the organization implies three things: A development platform that serves up formal, informal and social content & connection for all.

Social Learning – Highlights

Harold Jarche

Julien Pouget : Social learning can be considered a way of learning that is based on collaborative practices and internet technologies associated with them (wikis, bookmarking, blogs, etc.). Christophe Deschamps : Less formalistic than knowledge bases, these tools [blogs, wikis, company social networks] which convey conversation within organizations enable us to understand formal knowledge and also the informal context that drives them, and give them all their meaning.

The Evolution of My Complex Relationship with Blogging

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

From time to time, I like to reflect on my feelings about blogging, and then write about them in an entry in my blog. I have not done so in a while, and it has now been just about six years since I started this blog, so I thought that it would be a good time to return to the subject. I started blogging at the urging of colleagues at IBM. For several years my friend and colleague John Patrick had been urging me to start a blog. I write this blog.

Alternative Views of Blog Content

Tony Karrer

The same (actually) applies to reading blogs. As Sue Waters pointed out to me about indexing blogs, "people don't use blogs that way" I completely agree with Ken that content seems to stream by and if you miss the stream, it somewhat gets lost later as there's the continuous flood. But it concerns me that Ken may be giving up on our mutual quest to figure out alternative views of blog content.

TNP: 20 Years On

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It has been almost 20 years, and I thought I had put it behind me, but recently I see that my former supervisor, and chair of that committee, is now one of the people blogging on a philosophy website. The committee felt that my PhD would be better spent in an investigation of mental content - something I had denied in the paper even existed! In 1989 I was reaching the peak of my career.

eLearning Portal Integration

Tony Karrer

Initially, the conversation was about having learning content appear on the enterprise portal. Many LMS vendors provide portlets, gadgets or widgets that allow for access of learning content (most often meaning courses and courseware) through the corporate portal. But generally some of that content would be useful in a day-to-day context. The first stage of integrating this content is to simply provide links to individual content items that are housed in the LMS.
