Creating the Connectivist Course

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

So the form was not something we designed and implemented, at least, not explicitly so. One was the beginning of open online courses. We had both seen them in operation in the past, and had most recently been influenced by Alec Couros’s online graduate course and David Wiley’s wiki-based course. What made these courses important was that they invoked the idea of including outsiders into university courses in some way.

The Agile Learning Train is Leaving the Station | Unmanagement

Unmanagement

Much of what is currently rolled up monolithic, one-size-fits-all courses must give way to small but relevant content updated and delivered continuously to learners based on their individual profiles or needs. Social is not a feature. Unmanagement. New rules for the 21st century.

MOOC - The Resurgence of Community in Online Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

In this presentation Stephen Downes addresses the question of how massive open online courses (MOOCs) will impact the future of distance education. slide 1 – MOOC Wordle] My objective in this talk is to address how the massive open online course (MOOC) will impact the future of distance education, and in particular, strategies and examples of the use of MOOCs to promote cultural and linguistic diversity.

Accordingly: - I would begin to design and deploy an open public education infrastructure. For example (this is only an example of process, not necessarily what I would do), in a given domain a domain wiki would be established, where an ISP would manage the technical aspects, where individual experts would be hired to set up content, and where registered members of the community could make changes, add resources, request additional features, etc.,

But it was evident early on that we had latched on to something when we got a hundred times more participants in our course than we expected. If someone had said in 2008 that 2012 would be "the year of open courses" I would not have been surprised by that. These courses, which featured 100K or more people, used video lectures and old-style threaded discussion lists! But we call those ''traditional courses'', not MOOCs. That conference is where we designed it.

E-Learning Generations

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

( version française ) In recent years I have been working on two major concepts:first, the connectivist theory of online learning, which views learning as anetwork process; and second, the massive open online course, or MOOC, which isan instantiation of that process. The idea that books or courses could be broken down intosmaller chunks suggested to people that these chunks could be created in onecontext and reused in another context. One was the beginning ofopen online courses.

Indeed, any time something becomes popular these days, it is designated as 'a platform' (in homage to web 2.0) Don't build a wiki This is a special case of the social network site. A wiki requires a community of people to work together to provide a common base of content or services. In order for a wiki to work, the contributors have to massively outnumber the spammers and the griefers. Your wiki will be either (a) obscure, or (b) filled with spam.
