A Distributed Content Addressable Network for Open Educational Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Abstract We introduce Content Addressable Resources for Education (CARE) as a method for addressing issues of scale, access, management and distribution that currently exist for open educational resources (OER) as they are currently developed in higher education. The open internet thrived in the age of social networks, online classrooms, and massive open online courses. A second issue is latency , or the lag created by accessing resources half a world away.

Jane Hart

Although I tweet links to interesting resources as I find them, and collate them in my 2013 Reading List , the important thing for me about curation is also taking some time to analyse what I’ve found to try and make sense of it all, and consider how it adds to my own thinking and practice.

Jane Hart

Although I tweet links to interesting resources as I find them, and collate them in my Pick of the Day , the important thing for me about curation is also taking some time to analyse what I’ve found to try and make sense of it all, and consider how it adds to my own thinking and practice.

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

To me, the theory is and always has been ‘learning networks’. This is a play on words: it is in part a theory about using networks to support learning, and in part a theory about how networks learn. It led me to propose content syndication networks in education, and to embrace social media in education. I outlined my theory in the paper ‘Learning Networks’ in 2004 [link] and George wrote his important paper also in 2004.

I primarily used the eLearning Learning and Communities and Networks sites and used Conference , Online Facilitation of Conferences , Online Interaction in Conferences , Moderating Online Interaction , and others.

Managing Metadata with Resource Profiles

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Abstract Existing learning object metadata describing learning resources postulates descriptions contained in a single document. This document, typically authored in IEEE-LOM, is intended to be descriptively complete, that is, it is intended to contain all relevant metadata related to the resource. Based on my 2003 paper, Resource Profiles1, an alternative approach is proposed. Resources and Resource Descriptions Educators employ a wide variety of resources.

Organizational Learning in the Network Era

Harold Jarche

Value from this knowledge is created by groups and spreads through social networks. Learning must be an essential part of doing business in the network era. If nobody shared what they have learned, there would be nothing like Wikipedia or other free learning resources on the web.

Resources and Tools

Harold Jarche

I was asked to develop a list of important resources, especially the blogs that I find most valuable in my work. Since my work is focused on the intersection of learning, work and technology and especially how learning and working are becoming integrated in networked organisations, these are not just edtech blogs. These are not the best, but a good representation of some of the better resources. Wirearchy discusses new models for the networked workplace.

In the exponential world we’re entering, walls may be replaced by networks as the most promising sources of advantage. Cultivating networks. What we need, in effect, are networks, capable of infinite connections, building bridges that can expand in all directions.

So, what’s required to become the concentration point of an expanding network?

Note you can learn more about the concept of ego-centric vs object-centric networks here ). You will also find that different people are active in these different networks.

Tools & Process v Networked Human Judgement

Dave Snowden

Fundamental to the overall approach is deploying a more effective form of networked human judgement and distributed sense-making. There seems to be no end to the number and variety of tool supported safety management systems enabling an incredible degree of coordination across large networks and devices. Before we had such an array of tools, I would argue we managed the gaps more effectively with a more loosely coupled network of human judgement.
