Harold Jarche

Introduction to Social Networking. Online social networks facilitate connections between people based on shared interests, values, membership in particular groups (i.e., They make it easier for people to find and communicate with individuals who are in their networks using the Web as the interface. Note you can learn more about the concept of ego-centric vs object-centric networks here ). It is also the network of choice for most professionals.

New Technology Supporting Informal Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I would minimize dependent learning because it is obviously a cost centre and too much dependent learning may adversely influence mastery of independent and interdependent learning.

Social Media: An Interview

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I was asked to contribute my responses to interview questions on social media for a new journal called The Future of Learning and of course I was happy to send some thoughts along. When did you start getting interested in the potential of social media in education and why? It all depends on what you call social media. Most of what we would call the 'social' in social media wasn't there - there weren't any friend lists, zero cat pictures, and no tweets.

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. These combined learning materials, activities and interaction, and assessments. These defined metadata standards describing small and reusable resources first called ''learning objects'' by AutoDesk''s Wayne Hodgins. In xMOOCs, adaptive learning technology supports instruction.

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. Online learning begins in the 1980s, it begins in the 1990s and it's born out of two major things. And like the strands of DNA we will see these things repeated through the history of online learning. The first basis is in distance learning. In the mid-1990s, people began to develop learning management systems.

Distance Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

A reader writes, I've just changed jobs and am now supporting the development of a distance learning module delivered almost entirely online. Experiences of distance learning - my own, those of my friends and colleagues, has always been disappointing but the team with whom I'm working are enthusiastic to try new things and see if we can come up with something exciting and engaging rather than the usual isolating, dispiriting experience. So adults find such learning dissatisfying.
