Research and Evidence

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

His part of the world is the dual environments of Athabasca University and the University of Texas at Arlington, and he is attempting to put together major research efforts around MOOCs and learning analytics. Hype and rhetoric, not research, were the driving forces behind MOOCs, he argued.

Interview with Margret Schmidt, VP of User Experience Design and Research at TiVo (Part 1)

Her extensive experience heading up design at TiVo has given her a deep understanding of what it takes to deliver a great experience in a high technology product. Of course, you can register for MX 2009 using the promotional code BLOG and get 10% off. At TiVo, we were fortunate that the team that designed the very first TiVo DVR realized they were making something revolutionary, and they wanted the interface to reflect that. The same collaboration happens with design.

Labels for what we do

Giving respect to brand advertising

Doc Searls

While most advertising didn’t come from Madison Avenue, or practice big-budget branding methods, it was still simple and straightforward: companies buying time and space to send messages across to target groups. Of course. Like clothing and buildings, advertising’s brand signal is impersonal and non-conversational, by design. For a crash course on how this is going, read Bob Hoffman’s Ad Contrarian blog, watch this speech , and read this one.

While there may need to be management buy-in, it comes from emergent value, not exec-dictated outcomes the group should achieve!

This is a subject of interest to me; I co-signed a submission from NRC researchers on the subject, and have been reading the other submissions. From my perspective, the main reasons for the desperation are 1) stagnated support for basic research, 2) attempts to force innovation by ineffective and obstructive industry co-funding requirements, and 3) futile efforts to predict the areas in which breakthroughs will occur." But is the role of government to micromanage research?

Some universities are beginning to focus on a big-picture view of technology: making learning resources available in multimedia, integrating technology from design to delivery, using mobile technologies, and increased focus on network pedagogy.

Consistently, the technology of the course/conference that received the most compliments was Elluminate.
