If Your Enterprise Social Network Is a Ghost Town It’s Probably Due To Your Corporate Culture

Dan Pontefract

We deployed our enterprise social network last year, but it’s a ghost town. They’re windowless and the carpets look as though designers around the world have colluded with one another to see who can come up with the most bizarre patterns possible.

Collective intelligence patterns

Clark Quinn

social networking can facilitate work, to actually analyze and distill some underlying principles. In his presentation on The Landscape of Collective Intelligence, he comes up with four characteristics of design patterns (or genes, as he calls them): What (strategy), Who (staffing), How (structure & process), & Why (incentives/alignment). This is a really nice systematic breakdown into patterns tied to real examples.

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. I have been looking at the world of social networking, and my mind is moving away from the model where we are the experts and package the knowledge and sequence it. The idea is to lead academics to a lightweight narrative, and having them design around it.

Knowledge and Recognition

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Using 'domains' allows us to recognize that *any* network, appropriately constituted, can be a learning and knowing system. I should have said 'entities' instead of 'people', where 'entities' refers to *any* set of entities in a connective network, not just people in a social network. And is the nature of this quality based in the physical properties of the network in which it is instantiated? The process of self-organizing *is* the process of learning.

Researching open online courses

George Siemens

Over the last decade, I’ve extolled the value of social/technological networks as a means of extending learning opportunities. Social media in particular has collapsed the barriers between students and teachers. One area that I haven’t devoted much attention to is that of distributed online research networks. What are the habits and patterns of learner self-organization in open online courses?

There is one trivial sense in which every theorist agrees that learning is based on a neural network as described - they agree because they have to.

Most corporate learning remains traditional, formal, and follows patterns laid down decades ago by firms such as GE and IBM. It is much easier to show that a quality program or a process improvement initiative have more impact than a learning program.
