The Future IMS Learning Design

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The Future IMS Learning Design What is the future of learning design? Joel Greenberg My own personal view: maybe the world is moving on, and maybe the idea of 'design' is a bit old fashioned. Instead of trying to systematize, to sequence, a more appropriate approach is based around patterns and connections.

The social Web before social networks: a report from 2003

David Weinberger

It just hadn’t yet evolved a pervasive layer of software specifically designed to help us be social. Here’s what for me was the take-away from these two talks: The Web was designed to connect pages.

Learning 2.0 Strategy

Clark Quinn

A lot of the time, the way people actually learn how to work in this environment is through informal learning. However, you can't afford to have any of that written down (email, wiki, etc.) Many people assume that their content falls into that same pattern. The good news is that instructional designers and performance consultants have good analysis and delivery skills that are an important part of identifying and making tactical implementations happen.
