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. Corporations, as we know them, are obsolete for a network economy. Networks are not markets.

Elgg: it’s a community effort

Harold Jarche

This weekend I noticed a tweet from Alec Couros about some issues with the Ning social networking platform. This brought me to reflect, once again, how important an open source framework is as we move more of our computing to the cloud. While Ning may be free, it is not open source, and the company can make changes at will, just like Facebook, Google or Twitter may do. With Ning, Facebook and many others, there is no such export function.

Learning as Artifact Creation

George Siemens

Yet, change is happening, often under the radar of enthusiasts because it’s harder to sell a technology product or draw clicks to a website when being nuanced and contextual. Today, information is networked and digital. In 2004, I tried to respond to the network/digitization alpha trend by describing the new actions and experiences that were available to learners: Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age. The artifact serves as a social learning object.

E-Learning Generations

( 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. During the development of this second generation we saw theconsolidation of computer-based software and content, and the commercializationof the network itself. is social software.

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

To me, the theory is and always has been ‘learning networks’. This is a play on words: it is in part a theory about using networks to support learning, and in part a theory about how networks learn. It led me to propose content syndication networks in education, and to embrace social media in education. I outlined my theory in the paper ‘Learning Networks’ in 2004 [link] and George wrote his important paper also in 2004.

Beyond Assessment ? Recognizing Achievement in a Networked World

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I did a talk just downstairs on open content. This addresses the specific question of assessment in open learning and in informal learning. Is open online learning or the MOOC, the massive open online course, or informal learning in general doing the sort of thing that we need? Nonetheless, MOOCs and open online learning generally are shifting the definition of education away from its historical roots to a skills based, instrumentally defined enterprise ??

Open, not in the sense of anybody can enroll, but open, in the sense of the content is free and open to use, to reuse, and there aren''t limits on the use of the course materials.
