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.

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.

Is Design Thinking the “New Liberal Arts”?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Design thinking has become an increasingly popular topic of discussion over the past decade. Design is no longer just for physical objects, e.g. cars, bridges, shoes, jewelry, smartphones. The application of design thinking beyond products isn’t new.

ID - Instructional Design or Interactivity Design in an interconnected world?

Charles Jennings

Instructional design is not only seen as a core competency for learning and development/training specialists, but it’s a huge industry, too. Most learning vendors tout their ‘expertise in instructional design’ as a key reason as to why we should engage them to produce learning content.

Evil Design

Clark Quinn

In the mobile ideation session I ran today for some folks, the question came up about good and bad examples of design, and subsequent events reminded me of the topic of not just bad, but evil design. What I mean is design that is crafted to return maximal outcome to the designer, not just at the expense of the user, but even to the discomfort of the user or contrary to their intentions. This seems designed for the sheer purpose to get more fees. design

Jobs of the future: sports referees out, emotional designers in

Ross Dawson

Of course judging whether there has been a foul is far less cut-and-dried. DESIGN is in a way the defining domain of the future, in shaping technology, products, and indeed everything in our world so it best suits humans.

Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Large Companies

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

A disproportionate number of entrepreneurial companies are, indeed, small start-ups. But the article then went on to define entrepreneurship as something that applies not only to new or small companies. The defining characteristic of entrepreneurship, then, is not the size of the company but the act of innovation.” Quite a few people think that entrepreneurship in large companies is an oxymoron. Most of them involved one-of-a-kind parallel architecture designs.

So what does that mean for the poor instructional designer when over 70% of the learning they create delivers poor customer experiences? The easy thing for an instructional designer to do is to rely on simple instinct and maintain the status quo.

Teaching Online Courses – 60 Great Resources

Tony Karrer

I received an inquiry about resources that would help instructors who are about to move into teaching online courses.

Final Exam: Design the Ideal Organization. Use Course Concepts to Defend Your Answer

Bob Sutton

  I put in on the course outline so they can see it the first day of class.    I believe it was largely because my two course assistants, Belinda Chiang and Isaac Waisberg , did such a great job of giving students feedback during the five writing assignments that led up to the final.    It was touching and made lovely use of course concepts -- incentives, influence, and group norms, for example.

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.

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.

Mark Jones on the Pros and Cons of External Service Design Consultancies vs. In-house Teams

Adaptive Path

More and more companies are exploring service design with external consultancies or by building in-house teams. In the past couple years, as we’ve seen many design firms (including Adaptive Path) get acquired by large companies, it feels especially timely to reflect on the different advantages of internal versus external design groups and the types of work each is best suited for. Are you more interested in building a culture of design and human-centeredness?

How Long Should an eLearning Course Be?

Tony Karrer

Interesting question posed in eLearn Magazine article: How Long Should an E-learning Course Be? Interestingly the author chooses to sidestep the question he poses and instead gives a direct answer to a different question (focusing on modules that are parts of a course): What is a good length for a module? Through countless hours of instructional design, field testing, and client feedback, I have found that 30 minutes is about the maximum, and less than 15 is too short.
