The 20th Anniversary of Linux

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

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 ? The practical implementation of connectivism is the massive open online course, or MOOC. I knew about open educational resources before anyone knew what the term meant.

Massive Open Online Course The Massive Open Online Course, or MOOC, is a bit of a reaction to this. Very briefly, what I mean by a Massive Open Online Course, is a course that satisfies each of those four terms. By open , I mean, open across many dimensions. Open, not in the sense of anybody can enroll, but open, in the sense of the content is free and open to use, to reuse, and there aren''t limits on the use of the course materials.

This is not a regulatory group; everything will be open source, and progress will be through rough consensus. The same concerns apply to business decisions based on data analytics.

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

We're going to talk about the factors that led to the development of the Massive Open Online Course and Connectivism and the new phenomena in learning today. But, a few preliminaries before I start the talk, because it's all about open education. :) This presentation is available now at that website.

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. They study exactly what they best comprehend.

Bob Sutton

Davenport: Competing on Analytics: The New Science of Winning.   My Stanford colleague Huggy Rao and I have been talking about and doing case studies on "scaling" for a few years now -- the challenge of spreading and sustaining actions and mindsets across networks of people.  We are also doing case studies. The study of scaling is needed in this period of difficult change. Let us know if we can help with some case studies. Bob Sutton.

Open Content, Enclosure and Conversion

Indeed, one of the challenges is to arrive at a definition of an open license that allows for such agreement.
