Training Design

Tony Karrer

I've been struggling a bit to capture a concept that I believe represents a fairly fundamental shift in how we need to think about Training Design. Back in 2005, 2006 and 2007, I would regularly show the following slides to help explain the heart of what Training Design is all about and how it has changed over the years. Oh, and I called it Learning Design in the diagrams, but I'm afraid that it's really more about Training Design.

To harvest the course data I'm actually using an NRC-built tool in development called BeeYard. This will be useful in the long ter as it allows me to centralize aggregation functions to course providers aren't hit by a million personal aggregators. I've shown this diagram before: It's the digital implementation of the 'Aggregate Remix Repurpose Feed-Forward' model. and distributes the newsletter, RSS feeds and podcasts.

My 25 Years of Ed Tech

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Of course, that was not Weller's objective. I taught myself something called MVS-JES3 and also took a communications course called 'On the Way Up'. Baker's philosophy of mind class used a mainframe discussion board to argue course topics back and forth - I still have the complete archives from those discussions. And I started teaching courses, both for staff and evening students, teaching them about the fundamentals of the internet. But of course that's just a theory.

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The practical implementation of connectivism is the massive open online course, or MOOC. Rather, we encouraged people to create course content and to contribute to the course through their own websites, through discussion groups, communities, and and other forum they chose. We had about 170 blogs created to support the course, and we aggregated these using RSS – content syndication supporting online learning. It led to our first web-based course a year later.

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." Of course, we had instant messaging.

New Technology Supporting Informal Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

This paper described experimentation in the development of distributed online courses and in software - particularly, the personal learning environment - that support the formation of connections between the far-flung pieces of such courses. This work, in turn, is suggesting and supporting the model of learning described in the first section, that of a course network supporting and informing an ever-shifting set of course episodes.

Beyond Institutions Personal Learning in a Networked World

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

What they are talking about these days is the destruction of the university at the hands of the massive open online course. As one of the people who invented the massive open online course, I feel a little personally involved here. Thinking in Models: for Design, for Learning… A large part of this talk is about that change. It''s a fishbone diagram. Models of how to do learning, learning design patterns: Grainne Conole has done a lot on this.

Help! Testing a network mapping exercise | Full Circle Associates

Discussing with workshop participants gives you a chance to see the diagram from another’s point of view. Of course there are lots of mind-mapping tools around such as CMaps where I’ve done something similar however I agree that taking the ‘low-tech’ approach with newbies is a good thing as it makes them think about the topic rather than worrying about the technology. My experience with network mapping is with the Venn diagrams of Participatory Rapid Appraisals.

MS-Word version -- PDF Version EDUCAUSE has this habit of creating placeholders for its posts and then sending RSS feeds composed solely of those placeholders. Maybe the content will be filled later, maybe it's just a program entry and will never be fleshed out, but RSS readers like me will never know; we see nothing but the headlines (and sometimes not even that!) My cameras are in a separate bag (of course!),

Groups vs Networks: The Class Struggle Continues

And I saw Cape Town and I was briefly in Australia and then of course here, from Stewart Island, Christchurch and Dunedin, Auckland, Whangarei. I was at one of the technical universities in South Africa and they can have WiFi and have internet access and all of that, and of course, like all the other universities, they’re locked down. I was going to say we don’t say that this is good or this is bad, but of course we do say that this is good and this is bad.

How the Net Works

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The purpose of this paper is to describe how network learning works and to show how an understanding of network learning can inform the design and evaluation of online learning applications. Looking at successful websites in general (and looking at usability, information architecture, and other design documents) we can identify three major criteria: interaction, usability and relevance. Bloglines made reading RSS simple.

My Digital Identity

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

To borrow some comments from Helen Barrett, who cites Gary Brown, one aspect of e-portfolio technology is a shift from the idea that a learner takes a course from a particular institution or that a learner has a particular source or a particular authority that is teaching them or representing the state of the world to them. Thus Wilson describes the various protocols – RSS, FOAF, Atom – these sites use to communicate with each other.

RSS readers should click on the title and read the post on the web, as some aggregators do not update. What they designed is programs - investment programs - value-added support programs that support companies based on where they are in a growth cycle. A clear articulation of the problem, a designated champion - KTEC - that identified gaps and created programs to fill gaps. Here (diagram on screen) is the innovation cycle - creating, difusing, transforming, using.
