The wonderful world of the wiki

Dave Snowden

It is and remains a near-perfect example of how to design constraints to enable the emergence of value. Of course, it is not perfect. There are some features of a wiki that provide very novel ways of working and I am now moving beyond Wikipedia to the wider potential for their use.

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.

How To Think Like An Instructional Designer for Your Nonprofit Trainings

Beth Kanter

I’ll be sharing my best tips and secrets for designing and delivering training for nonprofit professionals that get results. And, if you are attending NTEN’s Nonprofit Technology in March, join me, John Kenyon, Andrea Barry, and Cindy Leonard for a session on designing effective technology training. All of my work these days is focused on designing and delivering effective training for nonprofits -primarily on the topics of social media, strategy, networks, and measurement.

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. This takes more than access to social networking tools, blogs, and wikis. Unmanagement. New rules for the 21st century. Search. Main menu. Skip to primary content.

LMS vs. LCMS

Xyleme

Instructional Designers (IDs) are now under more pressure than ever to deliver the best content, and a tool that many IDs are familiar with is a Learning Management System (LMS). In the simplest terms, this is a software package that manages course delivery and administration. For those who are unfamiliar with an LMS, this system, at a minimum, allows for learner registration and the delivery of eLearning courses or instructor-led training, which is usually in a web-enabled format.

The Future of Learning Management Systems: Development, Innovation and Change

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Course completion rates are a problem, also student authentication. In Canada, similar, 12-16% of post-secondary students taking an online course for credit. Software that provides instant feedback could be effective in improving course performance. So to give a view of the direction where the industry should be going: an example about the habitable worlds course, [link] - they created a course to illustrate the thought processes of science.

All of which brings me to the promised theme of this blog, namely how to take the ecological rebalancing ideas of the rewilding movement and apply them to organisational design, with a smidgeon of anthro-complexity thrown in for good measure. Sin in organisational design.

On the Indieweb

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

One is the design of the Indieweb itself, which is centered around types of posts , all of which are basically copies of the types of posts on traditional social network sites. But there are differences between these being features of the Indieweb, and these being part of the core design.

Peeragogy

Housed on a wiki, Peeragogy keeps on improving. Our role is to protect their environment, provide nutrients for growth, and let nature take its course. A landscape designer’s goal is to conceptualize a harmonious, unified, pleasing garden that makes the most of the site at hand. A workscape designer’s goal is to create a learning environment that increases the organization’s longevity and health and the individual’s happiness and well-being.

Social Media Planning and Evaluation for NGOs | Full Circle Associates

Nancy White

This topic is designed to give you some tools and ideas for including social media appropriately in your overall organizational strategic plan and to measure its effectiveness. Probably very few, mostly because, it seems to me, we are still too much focused on the features (attractive as they are) of social media, as opposed to the new business models they open up. What if we started focusing on the STRATEGIC features of our organization?

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'. And I started teaching courses, both for staff and evening students, teaching them about the fundamentals of the internet. course.

Live the Dream First of Learning & Enterprise 2.0

Dan Pontefract

While in Boston recently I took the opportunity to walk through the Commonwealth Avenue Mall ; a sublime 32 acre park designed with French boulevards in mind. Append wikis & blogs to some of your ILT classroom courses. Use private features of YouTube or Google Video to boost the learning experience with video blogging. Of course there are many other examples we could illustrate but in the end, you easily can demonstrate small wins or beta examples of Learning 2.0

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. That gives us four terms: ‘massive’, ‘open’, ‘online’, and ‘course’.

Future Learning Interview

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

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.,

THE Article - Full Interview

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

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.

Research and Evidence

Pundits made sweeping statements about the courses, saying that they were the future of education or that colleges would become obsolete, said George Siemens, an author of the report who is also credited with helping to create what we now know as a MOOC. “It’s But the Chronicle (of course) makes no such distinction. The sample is biased in favour of people who have already had success in traditional lecture-based courses, and consists of only that one teaching method.

Making Business Sense of Social Media and Social Networking – Twitter For Business

Luis Suarez

Well, not really; education on how social software tools work has got very little to do with technology nor the tools themselves, since you can always go through extensive features reviews, or in-depth overviews of capabilities, online videos, Web sites, screencasts, webcasts, etc. Like I said, this rather interesting set of courses has already gotten started a couple of weeks back, so out of the series of 6 planned 2 of them are already done and dealt with.

Personal publishing - while easier today with blogs and wikis - has been around since the early nineties, giving voice to people in new ways that ranged wider than their geographic communities, creating learning connections that span the globe. We are designing for social learning and interaction. Second, it is easy to reduce technology selection to a set of features and pick the platform that seems to have all the features we need. Or “wiki, use a wiki!&#

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.

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.

Informal Learning – the other 80%

Jay Cross

School is chock full of formal learning — courses, classes, and grades that obscure the fact that most learning at school is either self-directed or informal. To thrive in this environment, everyone must become student and faculty and publisher and instructional designer. Of course I forgot all that long ago. Think of a domain, say, chip designers. Designers usually only look at the formal component of learning.

What Not To Build

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

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.

Say I use this send out a manual, a great use for a wiki, then I have static copies of a wiki.I guess it'd be good for organically growing a collection of information but it really does pull out the collaboration aspect of wiki-dom doesn't it? I do like the clip-to-blog feature in that it seems to allow some more overt attribution for sources and data. I also think that the ClipCast feature is pretty interesting.

Learning = getting the job done

Jay Cross

Today’s corporate learning environments look more like YouTube than a corporate course catalog. By aligning these emerging tech priorities with the practices and methods that e-Learning professionals value in their work, and with consumer expectations of rich, engaging online experience, e-Learning professionals can better respond with designs that engage learners, while simultaneously anticipating what all their stakeholders expect.

The Enterprise 2.0 Recovery Plan

Andy McAfee

I’d set about trying to learn answers to these questions, of course, but this would be a long, slow process. It’s logical and natural to think that all the good new product ideas come out of the design department and R&D labs, that the folk in the IT department are the best ones to help you with your computer problem, and that the engineers are the only ones who can figure out why the doors start rattling after 5,000 miles on the road.
