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.

NRC''s track record in this sector includes the leadership role it played in the eduSource network of learning object repositories, the Sifter/Filter content recommender later commercialized as Racofi, sentiment analysis in learning, the Synergic3 collaborative workflow system, and more.

The Audience Experience

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

And, of course, my talks are interactive. There's a debate running around a few posts recently on the question of whether to reuse old presentations or offer new ones.

Beyond Institutions Personal Learning in a Networked World

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

What they are talking about these days is the destruction of the university at the hands of the massive open online course. As one of the people who invented the massive open online course, I feel a little personally involved here. The answer, of course, is, "Well, no."
