My 25 Years of Ed Tech

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I also needed to prove that the web could be used for online learning, so I took a guide I had created for my Grande Prairie students, Stephen's Guide to the Logical Fallacies , and published it on my website, openly licensed, free for all to use (the license was based on similar open licensing I had seen in the MUD community). But it was brilliantly engineered; I learned tons by digging through the source, learning how all the Javascript worked, and adapting it for my own purposes.

The social media I use

Nancy White

Eudora is no longer a paid product, now Open Source. I haven’t opened up IE in months. Microblogging. It is a sweet combo of real time wiki and chat room that pairs great with a Skype call or telecon. Wikispaces and other wikis, including MediaWiki. I also like PB wiki, now called PB Works. Moodle, while pretty visually ugly, is easy to set up and is fabulously open source, as is Drupal.

Social (hiccup) CRM tools

Martijn Linssen

Improved product, better advertising, great WOM How can you please the Social Customer? Jive When I visited Jives products page and their solutions page, all I got in Firefox was a blank page. I just got very (un)lucky clicking Products and then Solutions and getting two blank pages in a row. However, they approach the world inside-out, like Lithium does: No need to chase people, content, or conversations across countless forums, blogs, or wikis.

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. These principles are, briefly, autonomy, diversity, openness andinteractivity.

The Enterprise 2.0 Recovery Plan

Andy McAfee

It’s logical and natural to think that all the good new product ideas come out of the design department and R&D labs, that the folk in the IT department are the best ones to help you with your computer problem, and that the engineers are the only ones who can figure out why the doors start rattling after 5,000 miles on the road. Channels like email hide information; platforms like blogs, wikis, Facebook, and Twitter make it visible, persistent, and widely consultable.
