Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

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. I also took a massive open email course (MOEC?) 1998 – Wikis Also: CMSs, RSS I didn't bother with Wikis.

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. These all leverage RSS. Moodle, while pretty visually ugly, is easy to set up and is fabulously open source, as is Drupal. Moodle - open source “learning management system&# but I use it simply as a collaboration space. Drupal - powerful open source content management system.

What are Emergent Cities? - EMERGENT CITIES

Seb Paquet

Subscribe via RSS. Most of these people are now aware of one another and adeptly making use of microblogging — talking AND listening — to become acquainted with one another and building mutual trust and knowledge. Some are hidden and closed, some are visible and wide open, others are somewhere in the middle. Emergent Cities, or whatever these big ideas gel into, are going to be an historical eye opener. Posterous theme by Cory Watilo. EMERGENT CITIES.

Martijn Linssen

Stay in the know via email, RSS, dashboards, and more Listen up people, that is simply impossible. Nimble pretty much functions like Saurons eye and even then offers plug-ins for various blog platforms so they are easily Nimble-ised Im missing the integration to the existing CRM systems but thats what all three share - maybe Im just an old-fashioned guy, but then again none of the old-fashioned ones is open or stable enough to allow for long-lasting integration.

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.
