Drivers and modulators

Dave Snowden

One thing that came up this morning (well overnight as the exchange is with an Australian) is the difference between drivers and modulators, or rather the different implications of the two terms. A different way of looking at this is the replace the word driver with modulator.

A New Website, Part Six - Drupal Modules

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Modules A module is some additional programming that gives your site some additional functionality. A number of optional modules come installed with the original Drupal download. In addition, you can get many more modules from the Drupal web site. The first step, then, is to look at the list of modules that comes with the Drupal download. So I select 'Site Building' -> 'Modules'. So I activate the module. This will happen for every module.

Designing E-Learning 3.0 in gRSShopper - 1

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I did a bit of searching around and determined that the overall structure is pretty common: - course - modules - an array of individual units of instruction - sections - an array of individual offerings of the course Like this: Figure 1. Let's define what I want in a module.

From this I created a set of nine topics that constituted the structure of the course - the course modules. Then, for each module, I considered the topic from four distinct perspectives: philosophy, technology, media and learning. This takes me to an individual module.

Serverless Computing - An Innovative Approach to Software Development

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Serverless is an approach to software development for quickly building and deploying applications as a collection of loosely coupled modules and microservices. Serverless applications are woven or composed from a collection of loosely coupled, lightweight modules or microservices.

In the previous segment I decided to create a course with modules and sections, and set up the modules. I'll fill out the actual content of those modules over time. What I want to do is list the course modules and events (there's only one course so I don't need to list courses).

3 Ways to Increase the Effectiveness of Online Training Courses with an LMS

TOPYX LMS

If an organization’s eLearning modules are missing the mark, there is plenty company leaders can do improve them using an LMS. Implementing an eLearning program is a significant financial investment, but it’s worth the money when online training courses are effective.

Workplace Learning: Adding, Embedding & Extracting

Charles Jennings

Typically, adding learning involves integrating structured away-from-work learning (courses, classes, and eLearning modules) with learning activities within the workflow.

Angular is integrated using three Node modules (all loaded using npm install ): electron-angular , electron-reload , and elegular. There are two npm modules to install. The second is the specific SQLite3 module for Node.

New Project: Digitizing Higher Education

George Siemens

Once this analysis is done, each university will enter one of ten modules based on their current progress. For example, a university without an LMS will enter module one whereas a university with advanced infrastructure but looking to develop online programs will enter at module four. In fall, I’ll be running a course on edX with a few colleagues on Digitizing Higher Education.

3 Ways to Deliver Microlearning with LMS Software

TOPYX LMS

While there is no quick fix for increasing an employee’s level of engagement in learning and development, integrating microlearning into training modules with LMS software is a great place to start. Less than half of U.S. employees are highly engaged in learning. LMS LMS Software microlearning

The future of business education will be centered on contextual learning

Ross Dawson

When an obstacle is encountered the solution is sought in the form of a specific module of learning needed to solve that particular problem. This context specific module is acquired just as we need it, ‘just in time’.

Charles Jennings

The overwhelming majority of staff development budget is spent on the acquisition, design, development and delivery of formal development in the form of programmes, courses, and eLearning modules.

Building a Culture of Continuous Learning

Charles Jennings

To achieve these three targets, we need to think out of the traditional learning and development box – beyond the class/course and eLearning module approaches towards embedding a culture where learning becomes recognised as occurring within the workflow. Most people get it.

Identity

Dave Snowden

All of these and more modulate identity. One of the more fascinating aspects of human systems, and one of the most significant differences with the wider field of complexity is that of identity. Humans beings rarely have single agency.

Never Underestimate the Power of Education and Enablement

Luis Suarez

Time, in this case, will also play against you, more than anything else because hardly anyone nowadays would be looking forward to going through an enablement module of about an hour, for instance, no matter how interesting and helpful it may well be.

Re-thinking Workplace Learning: extracting rather than adding

Charles Jennings

New Opportunities On the positive side, the ‘extracting learning’ approach opens up a new area of opportunity for L&D – beyond the module, course and programme and into the daily workflow as a mechanism for effective development, increased performance and greater productivity.

Nothing Has Changed. Everything Has Changed.

Charles Jennings

We produced smarter modules and courses, better learning pathways, or integrated new technologies but the overall outcome was to make the learning landscape more complex and full of ‘busy work’. A Revolution or a Slow Demise?

I could use a Perl Module to create the OPML file. The disadvantage is that it means installing yet another Perl module. Again, I could use a Perl module specifically designed for this, and in some cases I will.

As with the JSON feed for Feeds in the previous post, I decided to use a 'datatype' element to make this clear (which is a major reason to make RSS this way, and not with standard Perl RSS modules - because you simply can't extra custom elements on the fly with the Perl module). -

But other than in that precise context a goal is dangerous in terms of missed opportunities, confirmation bias and a general failure to realise that there are too many modulators in operation to allow predictability.

In one case, it was for a series of elearning modules. In a more recent instance, it was on a specific focus, but there were several modules that used a similar structure. I was thinking about today’s post , wherein I was talking about a couple of packages that might help organizations move forward. I was reflecting back on some previous posts about engagement models, and was reminded of a more recent one. And I realized this has played out in a couple of ways.

Frustrated With Drupal

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I got to explore, for example, the Drupal Actions and Workflow modules. Try the Send Module , which in turn requires the MimeMail Module. If there is a trigger or a toggle anywhere inside the module commands, I couldn't find it (and I spend hours searching, methodically going through every possible setting - I am nothing if not persistent (people who read these articles should know that by now)). I cannot use these modules to send anything.
