We launched the course this week and I did a bunch of things to get ready. In theory I could harvest the YouTube RSS (Google just reinstated YouTube RSS a few months ago) but that's on the list of things to test.

Design Elements in a Personal Learning Environment

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

In this paper I would like to address the core design elements in the development of a personal learning architecture being developed in the National Research Council''s Learning and Performance Support Systems program. The MOOC combined several themes which were in themselves becoming increasingly important: the idea of massively multi-user environments, the idea of using open and distributed content, the idea of fully online delivery, and the packaging of these as an online course.

Open Education, MOOCs, and Opportunities

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

These systems were modeled on distance education resources such as programmed texts and course workbooks. These were designed originally by organizations such as the Open University, in Britain, and Canada''s Athabasca University. Online courses were developed according to a protocol that developed over 20 years of experience. This project, funded by Foundations such as Hewlett, involved the conversion and distribution of all MIT course materials on the internet.

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I was asked to contribute my responses to interview questions on social media for a new journal called The Future of Learning and of course I was happy to send some thoughts along.

Before this course, their opinions had been irrelevant - it was about me, the course content, and my papers and tests, which the instructors would mark.

And we saw attempts, at least, to popularize 'less democratic' processes in the writings of Andrew Keen , the growth of Citizendium and, of course, the Britannica Blog. However, the most important innovations in e-learning will involve advances in our understanding of how to design e-learning environments that help people learn—such as how to design serious games, VR environments, and online agents that promote appropriate cognitive processing during learning.
