Wikis and Learning – 60 Resources

Tony Karrer

I’m involved in several discussions around how to use Wikis as part of learning solutions. So, of course, I went to eLearning Learning and I looked at Wiki , Collaborative Learning with Wikis , Wikis and eLearning 2.0 , Wikis Corporate eLearning , Social Learning with Wikis , Wiki Security and a few others. Here’s some of what I found: Why a Wiki?

The Future IMS Learning Design

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The Future IMS Learning Design What is the future of learning design? Joel Greenberg My own personal view: maybe the world is moving on, and maybe the idea of 'design' is a bit old fashioned. The idea is to lead academics to a lightweight narrative, and having them design around it. My experience is that your standard academic simply won't touch this stuff (learning design). So, what is the future of learning design? The same could be for larning design.

Why #VRM is Fools' Gold

Martijn Linssen

Heres the definition of VRM according to Wiki: The goal of VRM is to improve the relationship between the demand-side and the supply-side of markets by providing new and better ways for the former to relate to the latter. But if the product is satisfactory, you just use it So why this VRM ?

Consequently, I want to get a wee bit more specific than what I said then: they can make courses about how to use social media better (not everyone knows how to communicate and collaborate well ). there is expertise in the L&D group (or should be) that’s more about process than product and can and should be put into practice. It’s not just producing a course about it, but facilitating a community around these roles. design social

Learning as Artifact Creation

George Siemens

Yet, change is happening, often under the radar of enthusiasts because it’s harder to sell a technology product or draw clicks to a website when being nuanced and contextual. Details regarding cognitive processes, teacher actions, learner mindsets, design models, and social interaction remain rudimentary. One student creates an image to detail the architecture of the course. It’s a new course. It’s a new course.

Proliferating Portals

Clark Quinn

After my last blog post , a commenter asked a pertinent question: Many organizations/companies have multiple intranets, wiki sites, and so forth, often making it difficult for employees to know where to go when they want an answer or more information. While your department creates online and classroom courses on how to use the company’s main products, you see the need for more advanced-level training.

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’.

Clark Quinn

I advocate not thinking about courses on a phone, but instead about augmenting formal learning and augmenting performance. The opportunity already exists to get information based upon where you are, and I hope we’ll see more, but also support for ‘when’ you are (that is, what you are doing regardless of where it is), and of course the combination of both. What impact has mobile learning had on instructional design?

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! Where I would express concern is with the ownership of the product and the equity with which it is applied.

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.,

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.

There''s also the wiki, to create pages that anyone authorized to edit. We use a wiki, we meed online once a week - we can use Collaborate, Adobe Connect, Big Blue Button - it''s an exercise in multi-tasking in many ways. I created a course hub that aggregates their blogs. We use MediaWiki, we use Discourse ( - working with the organizers of these open learning courses (eg. Jim Groom) led us to create an open course on creating open courses.

Video-Based eLearning Authoring Tools

Tony Karrer

The currently planned design is to chop the video up into relatively short segments, put in questions in between the segments as knowledge checks, and then have a graded exam at the end. May outsource some of the production work, but the tool must be an off-the-shelf, known authoring tool - no proprietary tools (see eLearning Course Development for rationale on that) Their only experience is with Camtasia.

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.

The only people who really need predictive analytics are advertisers (their task will be to advise companies to create products people want, rather than to influence people to want the products they create).

A really good example from the Gamification Wiki is the use of frequent flyer points.

It was designed to be a small to medium size group discussion, but because the room was large it was very challenging to do that successfully.

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.

Words of Wisdom*

Clark Quinn

Of course we stopped those, as we need a coordinated approach. Our first move was, of course, to purchase an LMS. We got a full fledged authoring suite and asked our trainers to develop courses. Of course we have pre-tests so we can show a delta and validate our work. Right now games are hot, and we found that one of our loading dock personnel was a talented game designer. So, to get product information, you go to the sales site, er, or is that engineering?
