Once more, across that chasm

Harold Jarche

Geoffrey Moore’s analogy of “ crossing the chasm ” is that any new technology is quickly adopted by innovators and early adopters, but there is a chasm to cross in order to get the more pragmatic majority to adopt the new technology. My consulting work is mostly bridging the chasm: I am an early adopter myself, and use this experience to work with the early pragmatic majority. Open Source. …

Community Portals

Harold Jarche

RSS has blown up the content-only portal funded through advertising but the wide adoption of Twitter is giving content publishers a new push mechanism to get eyeballs to their sites. I wonder if this will significantly change the use and utility of RSS? I’ve noticed that proprietary portal software is still being sold for lots of money and there are several strong open source projects available too.

Open Education, MOOCs, and Opportunities

These were designed originally by organizations such as the Open University, in Britain, and Canada''s Athabasca University. Major LMS companies such as WebCT, Blackboard, Angel, Saba and Desire2Learn all adopted standards originally developed by IMS.

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.

Semantic Web - Some Responses

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

On the technical side * First of all W3C RDF does not require that everyone adopts the same vocabulary for a domain. However, in order for RDF to be useful, different entities must adopt *some* vocabulary. RSS vs RDF vs Atom. You'd never see an RSS-type document with: rss:title atom:title dc:title So we need to know (via crosswalks) that what atom means by title is the same as what DC means by title. Anyhow, I haven't seen any evidence of increasing adoption.

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.
