Creating the Connectivist Course

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

So the form was not something we designed and implemented, at least, not explicitly so. One was the beginning of open online courses. We had both seen them in operation in the past, and had most recently been influenced by Alec Couros’s online graduate course and David Wiley’s wiki-based course. What made these courses important was that they invoked the idea of including outsiders into university courses in some way.

During 2012 Harold Jarche and I have been running a series of online workshops at the Social Learning Centre; these have proved to be very popular.

How to Replace Top-down Training with Collaborative Learning (2)

Jay Cross

HR and training departments overlooked experienced employees because they learn experientially, from stretch assignments and mentors rather than from courses and workshops. A wise Collaborative organization focuses its efforts where they’ll have the most impact. Second post in a series.

From Social Learning to Workforce Collaboration

Jane Hart

Eagle-eyed readers will have noticed that I’ve changed this blog’s title from “Learning in the Social Workplace” to “Workforce Collaboration” Why? Of course, I think training has a role to play in the workplace, but I just think that helping people learn with and from one another, in the workflow, as they do their jobs is much more relevant nowadays.

Social Collaboration Services: the missing piece in the L&D jigsaw

Jane Hart

Social Collaboration Services focus on supporting collaborative working and the building of internal networks, communities and collaboration spaces. Social Collaboration. So social collaboration then is both about working and learning.

When the Learner is the Teacher, Do We Need Instructional Designers?

Xyleme

It’s a new world out there for the Instructional Designer. When designing for mLearning, we need to put ourselves in the shoes of the user who is walking around with a very powerful tablet and/or smart phone. The camera, voice recorder, and collaboration features of the devices drive user-generated content that enable every user to be both teacher and student, and the device the collaboration space. Instructional designers are now learning facilitators.

Designing Civic Engagement for the 21st Century

Adaptive Path

We need to recognize these behaviors and design appropriate channels to engage with communities and governments for the smartphone age. Inspired by the great work that the folks at Code for America are doing, PJ and I came up with the idea of creating a university program that would get students to work together across academic disciplines (computer science, design, and liberal arts) to create software products that address real civic and social issues.

Open Letter to Canadian Universities

George Siemens

The currently high proportion of provincial funding as a percentage of the total cost of higher education makes it easy to justify large-scale collaborative projects. Piecemeal outsourcing, growing prominence of adjuncts, and tendering key functions of the university (online course development), are creating a context where the university will no longer be able to direct its own fate. Dear Canadian Universities, You are, as the cool 4chan/Reddit kids say, about to get pwned.

Work is learning and learning is the work

Harold Jarche

The bank has a central online learning portal where employees can take “courses”, particularly compliance training. The financial advisor told me she just went to the end of each course and did the test. We don’t do fail-safe design.

10 things to remember about social learning (and the use of social media for learning)

Jane Hart

With social learning it’s about thinking how to support it as it happens naturally and continuously – not how you can create, design, deliver and manage it. You can’t train people to be social or how to learn socially – you can only show people how to work and learn collaboratively.

A new framework for supporting learning and performance in the social workplace

This service area will continue to design, deliver and manage training, e-learning and/or blended learning events. 3 – Social Collaboration Services. Success will also be measured in terms of performance outcomes not in terms of “bums on seats”, test or online course completions.

Blackboard’s identity crisis, Desire2Learn’s optimism, and Instructure’s coolness

George Siemens

Disclaimer: They have been generous in allowing us to continue using their Collaborate tool (formerly Elluminate) for open online courses). The problem, of course, is that higher education has not yet signaled, broadly, that they need or want this. They’ve continued to flesh out their product line : eportfolios, design wizards, mobile, etc. designed for the cloud, using openness as a lever, and VC-backed.

Beyond Execution

Clark Quinn

Supporting the Social Workplace Learning Continuum

Jane Hart

This might be an enterprise social collaboration platform (if one exists) or else other social tools - or even a bit of both. But once again, this means we need to think differently about that whole design process.
