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 idea is to lead academics to a lightweight narrative, and having them design around it. But we (IMS) need to be more open.

Almost a decade ago, I detected an intriguing pattern regarding the unbundling and rebundling of firms (purchase unfortunately required). Of course, the pace and trajectory of unbundling (and related rebundling) differs across industries and geographies – the patterns are complex and fractal.

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The practical implementation of connectivism is the massive open online course, or MOOC. The CCK08 course and all the other courses we have developed since have been based on open educational resources (OERs). From your web & blog, we found you were a passionate advocate of OER, can you share with us your first experience about open online educational resource? I knew about open educational resources before anyone knew what the term meant.

Higher education is now being disrupted; our MP3 is the massive open online course (or MOOC), and our Napster is Udacity, the education startup. Open systems are open.

Only after this, do we move into the idea, of learning design and pedagogy, which is drawn primarily from the field of distance learning, where courses are rounded up as packages, or what we might call program texts, designed to lead the student through a course of instruction. You begin to think in course packages complete with content, learning design, everything you need for an online course. It is, in many ways, an unbundling of this traditional course design.

Dave Snowden

Some of the better approaches I have seen are linked to SRI (Stanford Research International) and I worked with them on DARPA programmes around a decade ago and have stayed in touch. Its also worth noting that the evidence for the success of scenario planning is largely anecdotal, and the anecdotes are from restricted sources in the main Shell. The diversity of participants in the process is also an issue and there are inherent dangers of pattern entrainment in workshop processes.

E-Learning Generations

( version française ) In recent years I have been working on two major concepts:first, the connectivist theory of online learning, which views learning as anetwork process; and second, the massive open online course, or MOOC, which isan instantiation of that process. You can begin to see a pattern developing here. This enabled a more fine-grained presentation oflearning content than traditional sources such as textbooks and universitycourses.

Is the work grounded in research? What I mean is: knowledge itself, to know something, is to be organized in a certain way, to have a certain pattern of connectivity in the mind, a certain neural connection in the mind. To learn on that theory is therefore to acquire that pattern of organization. The role of the teacher in this model is to practice one’s work in an open manner. Rather we looked at the data and we recognize patterns in that data.
