Edge Perspectives with John Hagel: Retailers and Customers

John Hagel

Almost a decade ago, I detected an intriguing pattern regarding the unbundling and rebundling of firms (purchase unfortunately required). Of course, the pace and trajectory of unbundling (and related rebundling) differs across industries and geographies – the patterns are complex and fractal.

Introduction to Social Networking

Harold Jarche

Each of these networks has its own unique style, functionality and patterns of usage. Facebook was originally developed for college students to connect, so it has a more informal, social air than you find on LinkedIn. Now open to anyone, you will still find that Facebook is the preferred network for Millenials who see the encroachment of Boomers and, to a lesser extent, Gen X into the network as cause for some alarm.

Omitting key information. Drupal is an open source content manager, Dries says. Today he’s going to talk about: history, open source, community, the evolution of software, and how to grow and sustain it. as open source, as “a full-featured content management/discussion engine…suitable to setup a news-driven comunity or portal site similar to kuro5hin.org and slashdot.org” (as it said in the original annoucement).

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The practical implementation of connectivism is the massive open online course, or MOOC. The CCK08 course and all the other courses we have developed since have been based on open educational resources (OERs). From your web & blog, we found you were a passionate advocate of OER, can you share with us your first experience about open online educational resource? I knew about open educational resources before anyone knew what the term meant.

Mass Collaboration Workshop, Day Two

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Background: there is a huge quantity of information on the web - this makes it hard for users to find the best resources for adequate navigation, but at the same token, the web can trigger learning. Prior to the experiement, literature background: Information Foraging Theory (2007, Fu and Pirolli) describes how individuals select links and forage for information. The ''information scent'' is the perceived usefulness of the resource.

Workshop on Mass Collaboration - Day One

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Recent mass phenomena: Wikipedia, tagging, blogging, Scratch, massive open online courses and connectivism, citizen science, maker-space Who is creating these? find the information). So - what are the open issues. - is there ''participation overload'' in the way there is information overload? - It as a system tries to make meaning - it processes information, some things become central, others things die out - it''s the the system that decides over time.

Massive Open Online Course The Massive Open Online Course, or MOOC, is a bit of a reaction to this. Very briefly, what I mean by a Massive Open Online Course, is a course that satisfies each of those four terms. By open , I mean, open across many dimensions. 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.

Instead of trying to systematize, to sequence, a more appropriate approach is based around patterns and connections. A more open, collaborative support environment has potentioal to lead wider adoption. But we (IMS) need to be more open. Very visual, contains a lot of information, hides a lot of complexity behind, so the user doesn't have to worry about it. The first was open source in name, but not in how it operated.
