My problem, beyond the obvious, is that the response from Zone Alarm acts as if this is just something that happens all the time (probably does) but worse than that - that it is somehow acceptable to create a product that routinely kills multiple hours of customers time fixing the problem!

Seven Things I Learned This Year

Tony Karrer

Here’s the series: Text-to-Speech Overview and NLP Quality , Digital Signal Processor and Text-to-Speech , Using Text-to-Speech in an eLearning Course , Text-to-Speech eLearning Tools - Integrated Products , Text-to-Speech vs Human Narration for eLearning , and Using Punctuation and Mark-Up Language to Increase Text-to-Speech Quality.

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

Getting stuff (search, content, etc.). Eudora is no longer a paid product, now Open Source. I haven’t opened up IE in months. 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.

Cloud - the Emergence of a New Model of Computing

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The last group I want to mention consists of all the people and companies selling ad-on products and services on top of the basic computer systems, such as application developers. Over time, the IBM S/360 family , announced in 1964, emerged as the leading products of the central computing model. A fairly large ecosystem developed around S/360 of companies providing a large variety of hardware and software add-on products, applications and services.

Top 10 eLearning Predictions for 2010

Tony Karrer

I somewhat wonder how much of that is true barriers as opposed to perceived barriers, and a recent HBR item talked about Hacking Work : When a 12-year-old can gather information faster, process it more efficiently, reference more diverse professionals, and get volunteer guidance from better sources than you can at work, how can you pretend to be competitive? You will produce a lot more as web/wiki pages instead of course pages. Productive debate is going to be good.

The Future of Online Learning: Ten Years On

Probably the most notable of the specialized computers, the iPod, has become one of the most popular consumer products of all time. Digital cameras have essentially replaced traditional cameras; Polaroid is ceasing production of instant film in 2009. Dignan, 2008) Microsoft needs to virtualize Windows, to create versions tailored to different devices, simplifying the operating system providing a similar user experience across a wide range of products.

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.

Predicted: The "middle path"—proprietary lock-in services, like Vista, iTunes, Facebook, and Second Life, will be abandoned for more open commercial alternatives rather than free and open source software and content.
