Share Best Practices - Patterns

Tony Karrer

Dodged that bullet. :) Patterns and Knowledge Work I understand the concern that when you share best practices, you may come out with very different results. Making sense generates cues and allows one to recognize patterns, both in the nature of the problem and response.

[liveblog] Judith Donath on designing for sociality (“Social Machines”)

David Weinberger

I read it this weekend and it is a rich work that explores the ways in which good design can improve our online sociality. Judith begins by saying that the theme of the book is the importance of online social interaction and designing for it. She uses a Mark Twain story [" Was the World Made for Man? "] about an oyster’s point of view to remind us that online design isn’t really all that evolved. She came back from Japan trying to design a more useful display.

Behavior Change as Value Proposition

There's a lot of academic research around the areas of persuasive technology and design for behavior change. We can see lots of examples of products that don't utilize data that are designed to influence behavior. It's a good example of persuasive design.

Their reports of the sessions appeared to most of us, to confirm with the sample outcomes we had been shown rather than the spirited and diverse discussions we had engaged in. The diversity of participants in the process is also an issue and there are inherent dangers of pattern entrainment in workshop processes. Managing future uncertainties was fundamental to its design. A small number of people in a workshop are too easily subject to pattern entrainment and cognitive bias.

Czech Course Followup Questions

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Given a teaching resource - perhaps some sample code with instructions - it will take me maybe half an hour to learn the procedure. We could talk about how better or worse to design these materials, but that now leaves the domain of cooperative versus collaborative learning. each learner will identify different regularities and different patterns, depending on their points of view. I don't expect students to detect the patterns in this by themselves, with no assistance.

It’s Like This… : Andrew McAfee’s Blog

Andy McAfee

SAPs of the world need to go a component based model and leave the designing of the business processes (using these components to the innovative minds of the digital factory ). The challenge with using a product-based analogy is that it does not account for the impact and importance of design on competitive advantage -- i.e. you may have better designers, but not necessarily better processes.

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I was trying to get them to spot fallacies by recognizing them, by seeing signs that would remind them of common patterns of argument. The difference is that a cMOOC is designed as a network, as I described above, while an xMOOC is based on a central course site and content that will be followed by all students. In a MOOC, the network is created specifically for a given course, but gRSShopper is designed to support open content distribution and syndication generally.

It’s by definition Open, but theoretically you could choose a different open license. I’ve just never seen it.
