Designing E-Learning 3.0 in gRSShopper - 13

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Workflow The next step in the use of badges is to develop a mechanism for awarding them. This is something that can generate a lot of labour in a hurry (9 modules times 10 people means 90 badges issued.). Right now all I have to do is type in the module and then click 'Publish'.

The Best of Times, The Worst of Times: opportunities and challenges for the L&D profession

Charles Jennings

All-in-all the implication for L&D professionals has been to make their traditional offerings of carefully designed, time-consuming and often slowly developed structured modules, courses and programmes relevant to fewer and fewer stakeholder needs.

Frustrated With Drupal

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I got to explore, for example, the Drupal Actions and Workflow modules. And with workflow, the only documentation I could find was a video. The search results thrown up by the site on any search are utterly useless. Anyhow, after spending several hours figuring our how to make the workflow work, and to send an email message, I run into another problem: how to send an HTML message. Try the Send Module , which in turn requires the MimeMail Module.

progressive: communication based pedagogies, comment developed modules, drag and drop UIs, mobile platfors, innovative workflows, integration media, etc. The approach now is for Moodle HQ to focus on a platform, such that other people can build modules on top of it. Many people want the traditional locked down LMS, where students are seen as needing competencies and knowledge, where content is to be dumped, absorbed, and pumped out via tests.

Atlantic Workshop on Semantics and Services - Day 1

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Current work includes weighted semantic tree similarity engines, semantic searching, weighted graph similarity engines, multi-core and cluster implementations, and matchmaking portals. Thus we can develop a workflow ontology in OWL. So ontology modules can be efficiently interchanged. You can get different perspectives to a module. The knowledge base of the 'utilizer' modules are augmented by sets of nominals from 'realizer' modules.
