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

Safety Training Design

Tony Karrer

Some interesting discussions are going on in the Big Question for February The Learning Circuits Blog: Instructional Design - If - When - How Much. I thought I'd take a cut at an answer based on something we've been involved with recent - the design of safety training. This is where design comes in. So, what does this case of Safety Training Design have to do with Instructional Design - If - When - How Much? Students don't care about instructional design.

Myths some teachers (apparently) believe

Clark Quinn

This teacher is presenting the concepts in class, and then assign practice at home. My suspicion, of course, is that this is to have pretty room when parents visit, but if so, I think the teacher bloody well ought to buy decorations, and not keep my child from enjoying the weekend to make the teacher’s room pretty. design meta-learning

On Homework

Clark Quinn

And, of course, the feedback should come quickly after the effort (not the next day). So you see it on Monday in class, say, and then visit it again in homework. Note that reactivating it in class the next day in a slightly more complex problem is better. There’s now a homework policy, which still gets violated (oh, this is a honors class at highschool level, so we have to assign weekend homework). Nope, sorry, don’t buy it. design

Courses Offering online courses allows me to test my ideas in the real world, both in terms of the course design and software itself, as well as in terms of the ideas presented through the course. course was an excellent example of this. I have a rough plan to offer three courses in 2019: Connectivism and Learning , reprising the content of the course I developed in Naples a couple years ago, but modified for delivery via gRSShopper in a cMOOC format.

Napster, Udacity, and the Academy

Clay Shirky

Who would listen to an MP3 when they could buy a better-sounding CD at the record store? The people in the music industry weren’t stupid, of course. Higher education is now being disrupted; our MP3 is the massive open online course (or MOOC), and our Napster is Udacity, the education startup. We have several advantages over the recording industry, of course. Seeing this, he quit and founded Udacity, an educational institution designed to offer MOOCs.

MOOC Provider Panel: Coursera, Academic Partnerships, Instructure, edX

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

the notion of ‘what is a class?’ – many of these MOOCs have become learning communities. There will be many more classes. We’re seeing in MOOCs not a lot more attention paid to pedagogy and teaching in STEM classes, bringing the benefits of online learning back to the the university and live classes. Maria: maybe one insight: now I think of SPOCs, small private online courses, how they made professors rethink things. It can’t be for charging to take the class.

Connectivism and the Primal Scream

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Entire structures of courses, programs and schools of study have been built around this basic coercive premise, so much so that we can almost pretend that the student is engaged in the entire enterprise completely voluntarily. And it must be flexibly designed for, or we risk failure.

Indeed, instead of asking how economists should consider campus course import and export policies, wouldn''t it be more relevant to question why economists have any influence on education, articulation or matriculation policy at all?

Sustainability and MOOCs in Historical Perspective

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. Distance learning therefore required the creation and distribution of learning content, of course packages that would support independent study. They had the model of the course packages, and they had the model of the classes. WebCT in English stands for "Web Course Tools." How did we design this?

Review: The Edupunks' Guide, by Anya Kamenetz

Following the Edupunks' Guide, she would find some recipes using Google, perhaps find a Khan-style course, and if very lucky, a Thai cooking Google group. In so doing, a person might take a course, search for recipes, ask for help, or - in the style of the underrated film ' The Raman Girl ' or that overrated film ' The Karate Kid ' - find a mentor to show you how to steam noodles. A few years ago, you may have had to take a class or at least buy a cookbook.
