Buzzword: Micro-learning


Picking up a couple of recent blog posts or videos from my RSS reader whilst eating lunch. RSS is a great example of this. For many years, my RSS reader, and the feeds that I subscribe to, have been my primary mechanism for keeping up with developments across the L&D and Technology industries. RSS, itself, is a standardized XML format – with containers for things like Title, Description, Author, Date published etc.

Tools Used

Clark Quinn

Interestingly RSS readership for "weekly" only adds up to 41%. There's clearly a gap here around the use of RSS readers. Twitter adoption is higher than I would have thought. Some things that jumped out at me: Clearly Education is ahead of Corporate adoption, otherwise the numbers are fairly well aligned. Then to compare with adoption by people in Government. Government is much more like Education in adoption than Corporations.

What he’s doing today will be prominent in edtech in a few years (if his early work with OLE (LMS), blogging, RSS, learning 2.0 Which means that it will likely not receive broad adoption unless fairly tech-competent educators deploy it. In order for gRSShopper and the Daily (email newsletter used in open online courses) to receive broad adoption, they must become push-button easy so any teacher can start an open course as easily as she can start a blog.

Learning Pulse


He explains how today’s complex environments demand emergent practices and why a new training model and a new form of workplace have to be adopted to ensure the survival of the training department. Learning technologies are not adopted similarly by all types of people. Karl Kapp is grouping technology adopters in five different types: Technology enthusiasts or Techies, Visionaries, Pragmatists, Conservatives, and Skeptics. Home About Podcasts Videos Xyleme Inc.

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.

Reframing the news

Doc Searls

Alas, Twitter posts tend to be snow on the water, flowing to near-oblivion and lacking syndication through RSS —though there are hacks.). Dave created RSS — Really Simple Syndication — as we know it today , and got The New York Times and other publications (including many papers and nearly all Web publishers) to adopt it as well. Today a search for “RSS” on Google brings up over two billion results. For RSS it’s syndication.

I Call Fishy

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

When this post first came out, I posted the first comment (because I follow RSS I can detect almost immediately when a post comes out) - you can see it above. Then bill eccleston makes explicit the point of the post, "the students should adopt a 'shove it' attitude toward the authorities," and then two posts down expands on Engineer-Poet's point: "It is unlikely that five people would ever die in Thoreau’s cabin." This is odd.

RSS 119

Serialized Feeds

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

This contrasts with an ordinary RSS feed, in which a subscriber will begin with today's post, no matter when the feed started. This page from 2005, for example, allows you to read Cory Doctorow's novel Someone comes to Town, Someone leaves Town by RSS. For example, if you were to take Moby Dick and divide it into 100 parts, and publish them all in one huge RSS feed, that would be a cyclic RSS feed." RSS feed readers typically access a web site once an hour.

Web 2.0 - Mainstream Term

Tony Karrer

Offers Many Opportunities for Growth, But Few Enterprises Will Immediately Adopt All Aspects Necessary for Significant Business Impact While it is straightforward to add specific technologies, such as Ajax or RSS to products, platforms and applications, it is more difficult to add a social dimension. By 2008, the majority of Global 1000 companies will quickly adopt several technology-related aspects of Web 2.0, but will be slow to adopt the aspects of Web 2.0

On value and valuation

Doc Searls

For example, RSS (currently getting more than 3 billion results on Google). But Dave Winer , to his enormous credit, decided not to make RSS itself a business. He made RSS open infrastructure, just as Linus Torvalds did with Linux, and countless other geeks have done with their own contributions to the virtual lumberyard of free building material we use to make the online world. Thus there is no widely adopted open infrastructure for microblogging.

Beyond Social Media

Doc Searls

Look at four other social things you can do on the Net (along with the standards and protocols that support them): email (SMTP, POP3, IMAP, MIME); blogging (HTTP, XML, RSS, Atom); podcasting (RSS); and instant messaging (IRC, XMPP, SIP/SIMPLE). Even in cases where protocols were owned, such as by Dave Winer with RSS , efforts were made to remove ownership as an issue.). Consider the possibility that “social media&# is a crock.
