Once more, across that chasm

Harold Jarche

In 2005 I wrote that these technologies were ready to cross the chasm: Blogs (with some difficulties ) & RSS. Workflow Learning (including wider acceptance of performance support instead of training). Open Source. … A year later the use of blogs had exploded, while workflow learning had stalled and I noted that an understanding of the value of informal learning was catching on.

There are several different online social networks, but for our purposes, we’ll focus on the three that tend to be used the most by learning professionals–Facebook, LinkedIn and Ning.

As for e-learning, 2008 was a year in which very little actually occurred(even in gaming, the headline reads Old Standby Back On Top ). Less-democratic processes will lead to a clearer distinction between expert-generated knowledge and the overwhelming quantity of information available everyplace, making it easier to discern information quality. Finally, open academic publishing will have its strongest year. The same with workplace learning and EPS systems.

Beyond Institutions Personal Learning in a Networked World

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

As Peter said this is part 2 of a trilogy of talks, I gave the first one yesterday at University of Greenwich on the topic of "Open learning and open educational resources". The talk is called "Beyond Institutions Personal Learning in a Networked World" and I want to begin with a story that came across the wires recently and I thought was very appropriate for this venue. Not getting the point that learning today is about play and socializing.
