E-Learning 3.0 Course Synopsis

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The MOOC environment is designed to support both types of learning. Ideally, course participants will have tools to manage their individual knowledge networks as well as means to interact through social networks. Each person enters the course with their own learning objective.

Innovation in open online courses

George Siemens

In a few weeks, our edX course Data, Analytics, and Learning (#DALMOOC https://www.edx.org/course/utarlingtonx/utarlingtonx-link5-10x-data-analytics-2186 ) will start. We (Carolyn Rose, Dragan Gasevic, Ryan Baker, and I) have spent the last several months thinking through the course structure and format. This is a short overview of the innovations that we want to explore during the course. DALMOOC has been designed to model a distributed information structure.

The game of course

Jay Cross

The largest obstacle holding L&D professionals back from taking advantage of network technologies, distributed networks, social connections, peer interaction, and informal learning may be their bedrock belief that learning = courses. What’s a course? Design Meta-Learning

Design, value & constraint

Dave Snowden

In Whistler earlier in the year we looked at the wider question of design and moved on in Tasmania to examine design in the context of resilience. In the final retreat of the year we continue the theme of design but this time with a wider focus on value.

From Courses to Campaigns : using the 70:20:10 approach

Charles Jennings

One of the major strategic objectives for many HR and L&D departments in 2016 and beyond will be to extend their focus and services beyond courses and out into the workplace. Courses may help with the basics, or to refresh our knowledge, but courses alone won’t deliver high performance.

Creating the Connectivist Course

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

So the form was not something we designed and implemented, at least, not explicitly so. One was the beginning of open online courses. We had both seen them in operation in the past, and had most recently been influenced by Alec Couros’s online graduate course and David Wiley’s wiki-based course. What made these courses important was that they invoked the idea of including outsiders into university courses in some way.

Czech Course Followup Questions

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I was asked the following questions after my presentation to CZ Course RVP_VT21 yesterday: (Elements of Coop.) In my paper ' Educational Blogging ' I point out that the first step to successful blogging is to read blogs. In my paper ' How to Be Heard ' I recommend that people use other blogs and articles as starting points for their own creative activities.

Instructional Design Orthodoxy

Xyleme

I will be dating myself here, but so much of the orthodoxy in the instructional design process was forged back in the late 80’s and early 90’s when the only Computer-Based Training (CBT) tools were Toolbook for the PC, and Hypercard for the Mac. The idea that you might allow scrolling was to many an Instruction Designer taboo. In my blog posts, I’ve been challenging instructional designers to embrace cultural shifts, and evolving technologies rather than brace against them.

What blogging was

David Weinberger

At a recent Fellows Hour at the Berkman Center the topic was something like “Whatever happened to blogging?,” ” with the aim of thinking about how Berkman can take better advantage of blogging as a platform for public discussion. They asked me to begin with some reflections on what blogging once was, because I am old. I understand that I’m reporting on how blogging looked to someone in a highly privileged position. My blog was me.

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 MOOC combined several themes which were in themselves becoming increasingly important: the idea of massively multi-user environments, the idea of using open and distributed content, the idea of fully online delivery, and the packaging of these as an online course.

How to Design Experiences the Adaptive Path Way! (Or Not.)

It’s a conversation I’ve had many times with fellow designers over the years. In the course of a given year, an experience designer may have the opportunity to take on as many as half a dozen discrete projects—if they’re lucky. We read books and blog posts.

Quinn-Thalheimer: Tools, ADDIE, and Limitations on Design

Clark Quinn

A few months back, the esteemed Dr. Will Thalheimer encouraged me to join him in a blog dialog, and we posted the first one on who L&D had responsibility to. We decided to continue, and here’s the second in the series, this time trying to look at what might be hindering the opportunity for design to get better. Wouldn’t the Successive Approximation Method be a better formulation to guide design? They seem to push us to think wrongly about instructional design.

Clark Quinn

IBM at MX 2014: Design-centered at Scale

Adaptive Path

Over the years, I’ve seen a lot of amazing work done to manage and lead in organizations from a design perspective. One of the things that stood out most from many of them is how important commitment from overall leadership is to putting design and experience at the core of an organization’s activities. Design-led change is hard and it’s clear that lip service to design doesn’t really cut it. IBM is serious about design in a way I have seldom seen.

Learning Design isn’t for the wimpy

Clark Quinn

I’ve had my head down on a major project, a bunch of upcoming speaking engagements, some writing I’ve agreed to do, and…(hence the relative paucity of blog posts). We’ve been given some content, and it’s not just about being good little IDs and taking what they give us and designing instruction from it. We could do it, but it would be a disaster (in this case, that’s what we’re working from, a too-rote too-knowledge-dump course. design

For my sins, of course, it appears there’s more mobile writing in my near future, which will likely impact my blogging a bit, but as always I’ll try to keep a balance.
