My 25 Years of Ed Tech

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Diversity University started out as an educational MUD; Walden University was also an early adopter, and a whole bunch more. But it was brilliantly engineered; I learned tons by digging through the source, learning how all the Javascript worked, and adapting it for my own purposes.

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The practical implementation of connectivism is the massive open online course, or MOOC. We had about 170 blogs created to support the course, and we aggregated these using RSS – content syndication supporting online learning. The CCK08 course and all the other courses we have developed since have been based on open educational resources (OERs). I knew about open educational resources before anyone knew what the term meant. It’s open online learning generally.

This enabled a more fine-grained presentation oflearning content than traditional sources such as textbooks and universitycourses. These principles are, briefly, autonomy, diversity, openness andinteractivity.

Beyond Institutions Personal Learning in a Networked World

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

As Peter said this is part 2 of a trilogy of talks, I gave the first one yesterday at University of Greenwich on the topic of "Open learning and open educational resources". As one of the people who invented the massive open online course, I feel a little personally involved here.
