RSS Changeover Day Experiences

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Well, I''ve done my duty and saved my Google RSS data, and now I''m looking for a new reader. Digg RSS Reader - [link] This is I think the one with the most promise on Day One. RSS is great for personalized links, not content factories, but Digg doesn''t even attempt recommendations. The Old Reader - [link] One of the first replacement RSS readers off the mark.

Creating the Connectivist Course

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

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 course was no longer bounded by the institution. But beyond that, the course was non-traditional.

Wiki Course Authoring

Tony Karrer

Not sure if he saw my post, but I was just reminded by Tim Seager from Xerceo about their Prescribe tool that provides: Full Wiki, RSS functionality that is SCORM conformant for tracking and managing competencies. A Wiki should make course authoring extremely easy and even easier to make updates. The other thing that they aren't currently talking about is using various add-ins to provide additional functionality within the course.

The RSS Feed The course isn't truly distributed until it has an RSS feed. We'll use the course newsletter as our RSS feed, except we'll publish the output in rss2 format instead of HTML. So, exactly as before, we'll build the RSS page in the page Editor. Dates in RSS need to be RFC 822, so I use date format=rfc822 - I've included keywords for both posts and media, so I can include the videos as links in the RSS feed.

A few simple tools I want edu-startups to build

George Siemens

Outside of taking courses in XML, programming logic, and Python, I am not a programmer. One of the challenges with traditional classroom learners is the extreme disconnect between courses and concepts. If I’m taking a course in political history, receiving in-context links and texts when I’m near an important historical site would be helpful in my learning. We’ve used gRRShopper, a tool that he developed, for our open courses over the past few years.

Science and Society

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I pursued this thereafter, creating a compugraphics course, creating MUDs, and creating websites. I followed up reading Rumelhard and MacClelland, and attending a Connectionism conference in Vancouver in 1990, and developed a network-based approach from there, incorporating the web, RSS, email newsletters, and other decentralized and distributed practices. The course itself was George's idea.

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. Online courses were developed according to a protocol that developed over 20 years of experience. In addition to LOM, the consortium designed Content Packaging, to bundle sets of learning objects for storage and delivery, and sequencing and design specifications, to organize them into courses. Microcontent services such as Twitter and Facebook originally supported RSS.

Of course we've done that with the Your Feeds page, but that page is designed for humans. Let's make a page we'll call course_opml.xml and have it display a list of feeds. Second, note the date command: date format=rfc822 OPML and RSS files require dates in the RFC822 format (which is a pain).

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.

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. As a MOOC provider gRSShopper aggregates resources and contributions from course facilitators and participants, helps support course activities (the integration to Big Blue Button still works!)

My 25 Years of Ed Tech

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

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'. Baker's philosophy of mind class used a mainframe discussion board to argue course topics back and forth - I still have the complete archives from those discussions. And I started teaching courses, both for staff and evening students, teaching them about the fundamentals of the internet. But of course that's just a theory.
