Learning Design Tools (Demonstrations)

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

TELOS - Gilbert Paquette IMS Learning Design (IMS-LD) is a bridge between design and delivery. And you need repositories of LD patterns. It is designed to address various needs, for example, K-12 lesson plans, higher education learning patterns, or workplace training. TELOS isn't exactly an LD designer and player, it's an educational modeling designer and player that exports to IMS-LD. So we got new tools for running learning designs.

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. So now we have this whole system all based around Word - structured interface, graphics from repository. So, what is the future of learning design?

It also made me realize that this was yet another thing contributing to my recent pattern of “not getting to blogging.&# Use an email list with a web repository that offers a permalink to each post, then use an external tagging tool like del.icio.us The KM4Dev community functions in the day to day via a DGroups email list with a web repository. Will people go back and use the archived and tagged material, or will they follow the age old pattern of just asking again?

Working Memory and Object Permanence

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Here's a summary I read today (consistent with previous accounts I've seen, and which motivated the current post): Long-term memory acts as an information repository or archive. The suggestion is that the limitations of working memory mean that "poorly designed instructional sequences can.

International Perspective: The MOOC and Campus-Based Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The typical online course is a structured content repository; the instructor has thought about which resources and the student is instructed to move through them in the crudest form possible, read this, do that, and that is the extent of the orchestration.

Minds and Machines

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Machines have a deep but narrow view of the world they were designed for. AlphaGo was given access to 30 million board positions from an online repository of games, and was essentially told “Use this to figure out how to win” by detecting subtle patterns between actions and outcomes.

But, computers’ creative abilities are expanding rapidly, especially in areas like industrial design.

The MOOC of One

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I''m one of the people who designed the concept originally in 2008. What I mean is massive by design, massive in the sense that it can continue to scale without losing its essential shape. We wanted to design a system that could scale without changing the nature of learning. That''s the course we designed out of the box, and then we told our students ?? There are some design principles that make good ones as compared to bad ones. These are the design principles.

Old Growth Media And The Future Of News

Steven Berlin Johnson

To understand what I want to say about the future of the news ecosystem, it’s essential that we travel back to my holding pattern outside the College Hill Bookstore -- which continued unabated, by the way, for three years. I probably read twenty mini-essays about Safari’s new tab design.)

The Future of Online Learning: Ten Years On

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Downes, 1998) At the time, I was working as a distance education and new media design specialist at Assiniboine Community College, and I wrote the essay to defend the work I was doing at the time. “We Computer programs are being designed to run in ‘virtual machines’ which can be carried from one hardware platform to another without adaptation. And specialized computer languages, such as Erlang, are designed to operate in multiple processor environments.

Presentation to UNCTAD's Advisory Group on "Developing skills, knowledge and capacities through innovation: E-Learning, M-Learning, cloud-Learning"

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

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.

What I'm Working On

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

In e-learning we got the Learning Object Metadata, which is a set of 87 or so data fields that e-learning designers should provide in XML format to describe their learning resources. You don't notice this so much in smallish repositories of only tens of thousands of items. The connectionist systems proved to be really good at some things - like, say, pattern recognition - but much less good at other things - like, say, generating rules.
