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.

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.

Microcontent services such as Twitter and Facebook originally supported RSS.
