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. 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.

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.

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. It''s a fishbone diagram.

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.

The Role of Open Educational Resources in Personal Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

He talks about openness in software, and then he talks about opennessin system, like open courses. George Siemens and I, in our work offering online courses,have depicted the progression of openness in three major stages: - First of all, openness in educational resources - Secondly, open courses, and then - Third, an as yet unrealized openness, opennessin assessment. But there are other standards as well: Learning Design,Common Cartridge, and Learning Tools Interoperability.

For example, here is the widely cited diagram of a personal learning environment diagram that was actually created before anybody came up to the term personal learning environment (so it says ‘future VLE’ in there instead).

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.
