Open Education, MOOCs, and Opportunities

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Reusable Learning Resources The initial development of online learning technology began at scale with the development of the learning management system (LMS) in the mid-1990s. Technological systems based on these designs were first developed by the aviation industry, in the form of the AICC specification (Aviation Industry Computer Based Training (CBT) Committee). Additional technologies to support resource discovery and reuse have been developed since then.

Social Media: An Interview

I also began working with colleagues at the University of Alberta in 1993 and 1994 to create a 'Multiple Academic User Domain', or MAUD, out of the same technology. As with the discussion board, it was the multi-user aspewct of the technology that made all the difference. From my perspective, contemporary social media technology is an outgrowth of these basis systems. I have always viewed RSS as the prototypical social media technology.

Activating Latent Knowledge Capacity

George Siemens

social media, participative technologies, it’s not unreasonable to state that at least a segment of society today recognizes information as multi-authored, participative, distributed, and networked. Facebook plays a similar integrative role for participative technologies. Between flickr, del.icio.us, blogs, RSS readers, and wikis, we were living the distributed, networked, learning dream. My social network used to consist of the people in my RSS reader.

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

It was intended very deliberately to be an example of the theory we had formed over the previous four years, and not simply a place to talk about it. We had about 170 blogs created to support the course, and we aggregated these using RSS – content syndication supporting online learning. Sometimes this is necessary, if for example you are creating a MOOC in a new subject area or new language. Take transportation, for example.

Blogs in Education

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Blogs may also be read through special readers, known as ‘RSS readers’, which aggregate blog summaries produced by blog software. Readers use RSS readers to ‘ subscribe ’ to a blog. Popular web-based RSS readers include Google Reader and Bloglines. For example, the University of Calgary uses blogs to create learning communities. This fosters in the teacher a familiarity with the technology and with students a habit of regularly checking the online resource.

Aaron Swartz was not a hacker. He was a builder.

David Weinberger

Clearly, this is not what JSTOR had in mind, but it is also something its contract permitted and its technology did nothing to prevent. He was a builder: Aaron helped build the RSS standard that enabled a rush of information and ideas — what we blandly call “content” — to be distributed, encountered, and re-distributed. Reddit was built using it, for example.”

E-Learning Generations

Content could be created in novel ways - the 'mail merge'program, for example, would allow you to print the same letter multiple times,but each with a different name and address drawn from a database. The third element was the technology developed to enablethat which we today call object oriented programming. New forms of games were being developed and entiregenres - strategy games, for example, sports games, and first-person shooters -became widely popular.
