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. I also needed to prove that the web could be used for online learning, so I took a guide I had created for my Grande Prairie students, Stephen's Guide to the Logical Fallacies , and published it on my website, openly licensed, free for all to use (the license was based on similar open licensing I had seen in the MUD community).

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.

E-Learning Generations

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

( version française ) In recent years I have been working on two major concepts:first, the connectivist theory of online learning, which views learning as anetwork process; and second, the massive open online course, or MOOC, which isan instantiation of that process. 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". What they are talking about these days is the destruction of the university at the hands of the massive open online course. As one of the people who invented the massive open online course, I feel a little personally involved here. We''re told there will be analytics and data-driven management.
