A new way to work

Harold Jarche

For example, the open source model has shown that software can be developed faster and cheaper (and many would say better) without a corporate, hierarchical structure. A network economy can retrieve artisans and guilds, distributing power to those who do the work, and reconnecting thinkers and doers. Corporations, as we know them, are obsolete for a network economy. Networks are not markets.

Enterprise knowledge sharing requires trusted relationships

Harold Jarche

As the economy gets more networked, open organizations are becoming a necessity. Businesses are increasingly dependent on complex social interactions. Products are becoming services, as we can see with web apps, software, and even books. Internally, work teams that need to share complex knowledge require tighter social bonds. But the major barrier to encouraging informal social relationships at work often comes down to a question of control.

Learning as Artifact Creation

George Siemens

Yet, change is happening, often under the radar of enthusiasts because it’s harder to sell a technology product or draw clicks to a website when being nuanced and contextual. Today, information is networked and digital. In 2004, I tried to respond to the network/digitization alpha trend by describing the new actions and experiences that were available to learners: Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age. The artifact serves as a social learning object.

The new artisans of the network era

Harold Jarche

Are knowledge workers the new artisans of the network era? Today, knowledge artisans of the network era are using the latest information and social tools in an interconnected economy. Look at a web start-up company and you will see it is filled with knowledge artisans, using their own tools and connecting to outside social networks to get work done. Augmented by technology, they rely on their networks and skills to solve complex problems and test new ideas.

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 Future of Learning Management Systems: Development, Innovation and Change

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

First there was the open source movement (Moodle and Sakai). Another trend - maybe not the way it should be, but it’s where the data point: open source peaked in 2013 at about 34% and since then it has begun to drop. It’s funny with all the talk about open education, the licensing model of the LMS is not going in that direction. social networks and blogging.

Innovation is not a repeatable process

Harold Jarche

In my opinion, democracy is an essential foundation for social business. Look at a web start-up company and you will see it is filled with knowledge artisans, using their own tools and connecting to outside social networks to get work done. Equipped with and augmented by technology, they rely on their networks and skills to solve complex problems and test new ideas. Can innovation be promoted through better processes? James Gardner does not think so any more.

Opening new common ground

Doc Searls

Meaning that’s generally how long any new world-changing development effort spends in the quiet shadows before it breaks out into the open and starts taking off. (If I’ve also seen VRM from the start as fundamentally an open source effort, not a commercial one. I also saw open source tools, with their high use-value, having enormous leverage into sale-value for any company selling products or services based on those open tools.

Identifying a collaboration platform

Harold Jarche

Does it simplify work and make it more transparent for everyone in the network? The options then become: Open the LMS so it can be used in the daily workflow. Use wikis for all documentation. I recently described one such platform – Elgg: it’s a community effort : Another platform that I have used since its early days is Elgg , an open source social networking platform that attracted me because of its unique underlying model.

Building a Solid Library of Use Cases

Luis Suarez

. You may still remember how a while ago I put together over here a couple of blog posts, where I was talking extensively about the Social Business Adaptation Framework I’m currently using when working with clients in their various different change initiatives as part of their own Social Business journey. That’s why the third pillar of the Social Business Adaptation Framework I keep using all the time has always been about building a solid library of use cases.

The social media I use

Nancy White

Recently I wrote a post that received a lot of attention - more than I would have expected: How I use social media. At the end of the post, I promised to write about WHAT social media I currently use. I started making a list of all the social media I use. Part of my work requires me to do a lot of experimentation, so I have accounts on scores of social media sites - more that are forgotten than are used. Eudora is no longer a paid product, now Open Source.

What Not To Build

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

As a result, a large part of my work involves being exposed to new and interesting technologies, whether they are the latest military simulators, academic papers delivered at scientific conferences, or product proposals being promoted by aspiring developers. Don't ask me what companies are developing what products, how industry stocks are performing, or where all the 'smart money' is going. Nobody will be fooled well, except maybe purchasers of fad educational 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. During the development of this second generation we saw theconsolidation of computer-based software and content, and the commercializationof the network itself. is social software.

Cloud - the Emergence of a New Model of Computing

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. The computers with all their software, storage devices, network controllers, printers, and all other gear were quite expensive, typically costing millions of dollars. Users interacted directly with the applications on the central machines via text-based terminals connected over networks.

But, a few preliminaries before I start the talk, because it's all about open education. :) This presentation is available now at that website. Over time, the concept of learning objects and learning object repositories lead to the idea of learning object repository networks. They create this network. Openness.

The Future IMS Learning Design

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I have been looking at the world of social networking, and my mind is moving away from the model where we are the experts and package the knowledge and sequence it. A more open, collaborative support environment has potentioal to lead wider adoption. But we (IMS) need to be more open. The first was open source in name, but not in how it operated. On of the things missing from a lot of the open source projects is documentation.

New Technology Supporting Informal Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

This work, in turn, is suggesting and supporting the model of learning described in the first section, that of a course network supporting and informing an ever-shifting set of course episodes. Peters, 2006) In part, our best response to the variability and complexity of the subject matter along with the changing nature of the learner is to design systems that are decentralized, to push learning decisions down the hierarchy or out to the edges of the network.

Learning = getting the job done

Jay Cross

Social/informal learning is crossing the chasm to mainstream acceptance. So they turn to social learning environments as the solution. Amazon.com blends the data they collect about their visitors and social networking to dynamically generate a customized user experience. This case-study session will focus on Intel’s experiences in using social media to facilitate informal learning. The key is single-source learning.

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. They didn’t really use the language of social learning.

Grade: B Social networking came into its own in 2008, raising millions of dollars for social and political causes. Finally, open academic publishing will have its strongest year.
