The 20th Anniversary of Linux

word of the Linux open source project quickly spread around the globe.

We launched the study later in the year and formally sent our report to President Clinton in September of 2000.

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It’s a theory where we grow knowledge, rather than acquiring it, where we learn by immersion in a field of study rather than by being told about it. The “connectivism” is extended to the whole world recent years, how did you combined it with practice in a subsequent study ?

Beyond Assessment ? Recognizing Achievement in a Networked World

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

This talk is basically what he said, except he said it in the French way with complex theories, while I''m going to give it in the prickly, analytical, English kind of Canadian, dry presentation. I did a talk just downstairs on open content. This addresses the specific question of assessment in open learning and in informal learning. It''s faking our cultural knowledge generally.
