Pseudorandom Thoughts on Privacy, Security and Trust

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

For example, Google's code search. A system is only as secure as its weakest point. Feynman also got involved in safe-cracking - he would try to find patterns in the security. From a security implementor's point of view - stupid defenses only keep out stupid attackers. Planning for security in the design stage is rarely done. Never assume your system is secure, never assume there are no bugs, especially if you try to use 'home-brew' crypto.

What's the Future of Jobs?

John Hagel

Robots are already designing and building their compatriots. Until then, the best advice we can give our children is to search wherever they can (and certainly beyond the four walls of the classroom) for a sustaining passion that excites and engages them and to not stop until they have found it. What better time to reflect on the future of work and jobs than Labor Day? I’ve written about this extensively with my latest foray on a recent blog post. Is STEM our future?

Beyond Assessment ? Recognizing Achievement in a Networked World

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It''s the basis for instructional design. You start with what you want them to learn, design an experience, cause them to learn it, build in some checks, and see that this has all happened in the end. ALT, the Association for Learning Technology, in Britain, is designing and creating badges as part of its ocTEL MOOC. You look and you search and you search. It''s what neural networks do, and it''s what we design and build interfaces for ourselves to do.

The 2016 Look at the Future of Online Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

We've been through this with learning objects, with learning design, and more: the problem of learning is not a search problem. The same people offering these programs will resist to the end the idea of the average (low-paying) student designing their own programmes. More flexible program designs As I mentioned above, it doesn't seem reasonable to think of a thing called a 'programme' when it's different for everyone.
