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. The same academics that use templates produced by publishers.

NTEN Leading Change Summit #14lcs: Reflection

Manipulating narrative?

Dave Snowden

The latest of these attempts to the commoditisation of design thinking but narrative, or rather story telling was one of the first. That allowed me to make the point that whatever you say is filtered through the patterns of recent experience.

No Sweat DIY Infographics

Beth Kanter

Therefore, we want an end product that looks good, professional, and captures attention and if we lack graphic design chops we turn to in-house graphic designers or hire professional designers. I couldn’t agree more!

meaning and failure

Using SharePoint

Tony Karrer

In this post, I wanted to capture some of the patterns of use of SharePoint that seem to be emerging. Using SharePoint before, during and after courses This typically takes the form of sharing best practices, code examples, templates, links; posting announcements; having discussions; showing calendar items; supporting student profiles; supporting student project work; sharing notes, documents; providing course content. I've been having fabulous conversations about using SharePoint.

Towards a co-evolutionary praxis of value

Dave Snowden

Its a high level summary designed to provide a visual aid to the text rather than a precise flow or description. The story telling approach follows a similar pattern but mitigates some of its ills. We manage evolution, we don't try and design a machine.

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.

The Enterprise 2.0 Recovery Plan

Andy McAfee

It’s logical and natural to think that all the good new product ideas come out of the design department and R&D labs, that the folk in the IT department are the best ones to help you with your computer problem, and that the engineers are the only ones who can figure out why the doors start rattling after 5,000 miles on the road.
