Some of these people are designers, but the majority are managers, business strategists, front-line workers, and P&L owners. Together we have been solving big wonky strategy and design problems that matter deeply to how our client will continue to support and grow relationships with their customers in the future. Without carefully designed activities, unhappy groups abound.

MOOC - The Resurgence of Community in Online Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Hence, a MOOC is to my mind, defined along the following four dimensions: [slide 3 – massive] Massive - here I mean not necessarily the success of the MOOC in attracting many people, but in the design elements that make educating many people possible. In practice, what this means is a system designed so that bottlenecks are not created in any of the four attributes: modeling, demonstration, practice, and reflection. but also to be involved in the design of these.

Sustainability and MOOCs in Historical Perspective

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The other basis for online learning is the traditional classroom, learning that we all grew up with, where there is a class, a cohort of students, who go through a body of content or a curriculum, who interact with each other when they conduct activities and conduct projects. Learning design was an attempt to emulate what was called programmed learning in the course packages, a way of leading the student through the materials one step at a time. How did we design this?

Adaptive Path

Every product is a design theory embodied. Designers and developers make something based on their theory about what is good and fun and useful and enjoyable, ideally for a particular audience. For most of the history of software development, that would be the end of the experiment, in this case, a demonstration of the application creators significant failures to align the designed applications with the user’s needs or expectations.

Informal Learning Technology

Tony Karrer

In his post, he really is looking primarily at the University of Manitoba's Connectivism Course that he designed and delivered with George Siemens to 2200 students in Fall 2008 and you can tell that he's busy thinking about the technology behind the Fall 2009 course.

Harold Jarche » Proficiency-based training

Harold Jarche

For learning professionals, it is important to design tests that can validate competency. This is an overlooked area of instructional design as too much effort is spent on delivering content, in my opinion.

Toward a Pattern Language for Enterprise 2.0 : Andrew McAfee’s Blog

I’ve had for some time now the vague sense that the iPhone, Twitter, Gmail, Googling, Facebook, Wikipedia, Delicious, and other runaway successes are trying to tell us something about how we want to use technology in our lives and in our work, and if we enterprise technologists listen carefully we’ll hear what that something is.
