If they stick to dedicating most of their time to designing learning events they are unlikely to be adding real value. Everything from podcasting tools, wiki tools, social networking tools, screencasting and conferencing tools, blogging tools and so on.

Another key idea was the design of the gaming space itself.Early computer games (and many early arcade games) were designed likeprogrammed learning: they were like a flow chart, guiding you through a seriesof choices to a predetermined conclusion. During the development of this second generation we saw theconsolidation of computer-based software and content, and the commercializationof the network itself. is social software.

Education Pecha-Kuchas

David Weinberger

We need a common design method and tools for developing learning areas. Also, looking at social networking: people are teaching each other. Edu systems are increasingly risk-averse. - “Mass customization&# is about modules, e.g., an algebra model. We need to be aware that there is some finite set of modules students need. This is a PechaKucha session: Each presenter talks to 20 slides, each for 20 seconds, run on a timer. NOTE: Live-blogging.

Distance Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

A reader writes, I've just changed jobs and am now supporting the development of a distance learning module delivered almost entirely online.

This is a social-network slash content management system written in PHP. It has been reasonably popular, particularly in the education circles for which is is designed. And then on the social network side there's Friendster, Orkut, Linked-In and all the rest. Look at Moodle and look at all the Moodle modules. Look at all the Drupal modules.
