e-Clippings (Learning As Art): Facebbok apps now work on other sites.what is the hard part to figure out here?

Mark Oehlert

A few weeks ago, a story came out about how Facebook will allow apps built for Facebook to work on other Web sites. Am I missing all the products in the learning/training industry that are coming out in this regard? The awesome open source project?

Open as in commons, not garden

Harold Jarche

I have been a proponent of the open web and open source software for the past decade and more. I deleted my Facebook account over a year ago, having no more time for this enormous walled garden, and I deleted my LinkedIn account and started to rebuild it last year.

A new way to work

Harold Jarche

For example, the open source model has shown that software can be developed faster and cheaper (and many would say better) without a corporate, hierarchical structure.

Open Education, MOOCs, and Opportunities

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

These were designed originally by organizations such as the Open University, in Britain, and Canada''s Athabasca University. Open Education Resources Alongside the development of educational technologies is an equally important movement to support open educational resources. This movement predates the development of the world wide web in 1994, as seen for example in the Gutenberg Project, an open access archive of public domain works of classic literature.

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The practical implementation of connectivism is the massive open online course, or MOOC. We had about 170 blogs created to support the course, and we aggregated these using RSS – content syndication supporting online learning. The CCK08 course and all the other courses we have developed since have been based on open educational resources (OERs). I knew about open educational resources before anyone knew what the term meant. It’s open online learning generally.

Sustainability and MOOCs in Historical Perspective

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

We're going to talk about the factors that led to the development of the Massive Open Online Course and Connectivism and the new phenomena in learning today. But, a few preliminaries before I start the talk, because it's all about open education. :) This presentation is available now at that website. One of the things we learned was the tension that exists between open online resources and commercial resources. It came, over time, to be called Open Educational Resources.

E-Learning Generations

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

( version française ) In recent years I have been working on two major concepts:first, the connectivist theory of online learning, which views learning as anetwork process; and second, the massive open online course, or MOOC, which isan instantiation of that process. This enabled a more fine-grained presentation oflearning content than traditional sources such as textbooks and universitycourses. Twitter feeds and the Facebook group are major elements ofthe course.
