Design Elements in a Personal Learning Environment

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

In this paper I would like to address the core design elements in the development of a personal learning architecture being developed in the National Research Council''s Learning and Performance Support Systems program. The program draws on NRC''s research in other fields, such as machine learning and analytics. The NRC-designed MOOC differs significantly from traditional courses.

Learning in 2024 #LRN2024

The ExperienceAPI coupled with analytics is a huge opportunity. Working ‘out loud’, showing our work, and working together is a critical inflection point in bringing learning back into the workflow in a natural way and away from the ‘event’ model. This plays out in so many ways: order-taking for courses, equating information with skills, being concerned with speed and quantity instead of quality of outcomes, not measuring the impact, the list goes on.

What’s the next buzzword?

And, of course, we need to dig into the real affordances , not just the hype (PowerPoint in Second Life, anyone?). And we’ve had someone recently claim to have invented workflow learning (though it’s been talked about for years ). Also Analytics (I think Big Data is already in the last paragraph’s category). And of course, AR and VR are very much now. Of course, I could wish we’re talking IA instead of AI, too.



A Learning Management System (LMS) is a software application that allows a company, school, or organization to administer, document, track, and report on the delivery of educational courses and training programs. Workflow management/review tool. Workflow Management/Review Tool. ?.



Instructional Designers (IDs) are now under more pressure than ever to deliver the best content, and a tool that many IDs are familiar with is a Learning Management System (LMS). In the simplest terms, this is a software package that manages course delivery and administration.

I also noticed that there is a lot of "buzz" around responsive design. Responsive design means a new way of thinking about your development process and new skills that are needed. Learning content development no longer means just linear desktop courses and/or classroom options.
