A New Website, Part Six - Drupal Modules

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

You have to select 'Site Configuration', then 'Site Information', and change the page at the bottom of the list of options (though you should actually create the new page first). Modules A module is some additional programming that gives your site some additional functionality. A number of optional modules come installed with the original Drupal download. In addition, you can get many more modules from the Drupal web site. So I activate the module.

Designing E-Learning 3.0 in gRSShopper - 2

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

In the previous segment I decided to create a course with modules and sections, and set up the modules. I'll fill out the actual content of those modules over time. What I want to do is list the course modules and events (there's only one course so I don't need to list courses). The format will default to HTML, and I'll want to change that, but I'll test this first. Figure 15 - where are my modules? The result should be a clickable link to the module.

A Review of SAP Jam

Dan Pontefract

A logo, background colour scheme, and a few other UI changes can be made. The hurdle was overcome well before we went live to the organization, but the lesson for others is to ensure you sort through the relationship of Jam to BizX if you are launching other SuccessFactors modules at the same time. Overall, Jam deployed to the organization easier than some of the other SuccessFactors modules. (I Learning Module Integration. Profile RSS.

Learning Electron - Part 2

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Angular is integrated using three Node modules (all loaded using npm install ): electron-angular , electron-reload , and elegular. What it does is update the Node application any time a fle changes, so you can make changes in the HTML and Javascript and see them right away, without having to stop and restart your application. There are two npm modules to install. The second is the specific SQLite3 module for Node.

I could use a Perl Module to create the OPML file. The disadvantage is that it means installing yet another Perl module. I've changed that from ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8. Second, note the date command: date format=rfc822 OPML and RSS files require dates in the RFC822 format (which is a pain). Again, I could use a Perl module specifically designed for this, and in some cases I will. There is a 'jsonfeed' standard defined for JSON versions of RSS feeds.

Figure 140 - The 'Authorize' button on the Swagger sample API Interface page In Perl I decided to create a Perl Module that would handle all the Badgr API tasks. Each time I want to use Badgr I call up a new instance of this module, that is, 'a new Badgr object'. For gRSShopper I found a way to encode images into Base64 using a Perl module. Second, just to change things up, we create our URI in a new way.

My 25 Years of Ed Tech

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

1998 – Wikis Also: CMSs, RSS I didn't bother with Wikis. Instead, for me, 1998 was the year of RSS and content syndication. I did a lot of work with RSS, combining it with content management systems (CMS). And most of the change has been for the better.

A New Website, Part Eleven - Content Construction

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It is worth noting that the node counter in Drupal does not increment authomatically, which means that after a bunch of records are inserted you have to change the counter manually. First of all, how do define events: I needed to decide between the ' Calendar ' module and the 'CCK' module. How about the Calendar module? I don't understand the thinking behind the module pages in Drupal. And why doesn't the 'support forum' link to a module-specific support forum?

The Age of “Lean Manufacturing” in Learning Content Management Systems

Xyleme

In the case of software, or let’s say “digital products” in general, the “production systems” have undergone vast technological change, in the same way as traditional manufacturing techniques. And then came along came object-oriented programming and all of a sudden the “production system” changed. Test systems emerged that allowed you to validate “modules” or components before the entire system was finished. RSS feed Google Youdao Xian Guo Zhua Xia My Yahoo!

Also, I want to make some changes to what I'm doing. As well, I want to try to implement some of the changes I've been planning. This is a bit tricky because my website includes both harvested content from Edu_RSS and generated content such as my articles and posts. Tricky, but not impossible, for as we have seen Drupal also has an RSS aggregator. Edu_RSS content will be managed separately from my own website content.

Down But Not Quite Out: what can we learn from the plights of Learning Tree International and Readers Digest?

Charles Jennings

However, both are living in troubled times for the same reason – a failure to innovate and a failure to adapt in a rapidly changing world. The CEO reported that foreign exchange rate changes had an impact, but I think Learning Tree is facing deeper problems. Our Changing World The world is moving on, people expect to get their learning and development online where possible, at a time that suits them, and in small chunks rather than 5-day off-the-job courses.

A New Website, Part Nine - Mailing List Follies

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Views Over the weekend I installed the Views module and experimented with it. Happily this module does exactly what I want it to do: it allows me to describe a list of records I would like displayed on a page or a block, and it then displays them for me. Using the CCK module, I have determined that I can create new data types that emulate the tables in my old system, including even the links between records that I use. I eventually found the module here.

Charles talks about the Changing Expectations of CLOs: Many CLOs in large corporations around the world now subscribe to the view that most organisational learning is informal and even where formal learning is used they expect more than a one-off event from their suppliers. Great post from Charles Jennings – Down But Not Quite Out: what can we learn from the plights of Learning Tree International and Readers Digest?

You write that your are "now supporting the development of a distance learning module delivered almost entirely online."

E-Learning Generations

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

But they brought withthem some radical changes to the idea of learning itself. This changed the natureof a computer program from a single entity that processed data to a collectionof independent entities - objects - that interacted with each other: they couldsend messages to each other to prompt responses, one could be 'contained' inanother, or one could be 'part' of another. Second, it created the idea that these content modules orchunks were sharable.

CoP Series #8: Content and Community

Nancy White

Books, papers, self-paced learning modules, resources, learner discussions, reflective logs/blogs, images, audio, video. The content may be dynamic, changing and evolving so one set of static resources that works for todays course is outdated in six months. Learning content is not a static element, particularly for topics that are deeply embedded in our rapidly change society. So a childcare course may need to have a “line of sight&# to changing policy, or local trends.

Yet, this is changing, and the pace of this change will continue to accelerate. Sterling, 1999) New Technology in Education While technology changes rapidly, people do not. Underlying the transition from formal, structured learning to more informal and more unstructured learning is not simply a technological change but also a social change. It is this change I have attempted in recent years to capture under the heading of ‘groups versus networks’.

That's not perfect, because my time zone - Atlantic Time - will change with daylight time. Though if it said something different, I would have changed it to 'files'. A 'page' is more like a static website page, something that is there all the time (though its contents may change). Posts are (by default, though I will change this) displayed on the main page.
