Sueetie -.NET Open Source Online Community Development

Nancy White

My Vermont buddie, Dave Burke , was tantalizing me last September with the kit of open source.net tools he was blending into a community platform. Sueetie: The Future in.NET Open Source Online Community Development - Home Page. I was VERY happy to see that Dave included a wiki, something I was begging for when he showed me his prototypes. I also enjoyed the Manifesto: Sueetie is a movement that promotes the creation of online communities using.NET Open Source software.

The revolution brewing in the world of work: Q&A with Rod Collins

Steve Denning

For the last 150 years, the work of large organizations has been about mass production and making centralization effective. Steve: The title of the book says we live "in a wiki world." Rod : A wiki world is the new world we suddenly find ourselves in today where networks are far smarter and faster than hierarchies. "Wiki " is the Hawaiian word for "fast" or "quick." This is the remarkable power behind open source platforms.

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. A stunning period web innovation occurred between 2000-2005: delicious, myspace, many blog platforms, flickr, wikis, etc. The gates were opened and everyone was a content creator and everything was subject to user creation.

Working on Internet Time

Harold Jarche

Equipped with and augmented by technology, they rely on their human capital and skill to solve complex problems and develop new ideas, products and services. Small groups of highly productive knowledge artisans are capable of producing goods and services that used to take substantially larger teams and resources. Tweet An artisan is a skilled manual worker in a particular craft, using specialized processes, tools and machinery.

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. The “job” was the way we redistributed wealth, making capitalists pay for the means of production and in return creating a middle class that could pay for mass produced goods.

The new artisans of the network era

Harold Jarche

Small groups of highly productive knowledge artisans are capable of producing goods and services that used to take much larger teams and resources. In addition to redefining how work is done, knowledge artisans are creating new organizational structures and business models, such as virtual companies, crowd-sourced product development, and alternative currencies. They tolerate few, if any, silos between the product, the work, and the customer.

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. But a bigger movement is the success of Canvas, which came out of the gate with a more minimal product.

Once more, across that chasm

Harold Jarche

For marketing, this is the real challenge – can the new product get widespread acceptance? Open Source. … and that these probably wouldn’t get across, yet: Wikis (partially because of the name). Wikis were becoming more popular, especially those that replicated word processesors, like Writely , which was later purchased to become Google Docs, used ubiquitously today.

Enterprise knowledge sharing requires trusted relationships

Harold Jarche

As the economy gets more networked, open organizations are becoming a necessity. Products are becoming services, as we can see with web apps, software, and even books. An important factor in what we call ‘social businesses’ – those that are open, transparent and cooperative – is that they are more resilient because they rely on people, not processes. This is why online collaboration tools were first developed by the open source software movement.

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.

In addition to redefining how work is done, knowledge artisans are creating new organizational structures and business models, such as virtual companies, crowd-sourced product development and alternative currencies.

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.

Nancy White

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.

Building a Solid Library of Use Cases

How to Get the Greatest ROI from eLearning

TOPYX LMS

Whether it’s an investment in oneself, a business, another person, or a product, a quality return is always desired. The biggest issue is that e-learning programs inevitably tend to grow in the numbers of courses, complexity of interactivity, evolutionary needs (such as the importation of third-party courses), and ‘nice to have’ needs, such as podcasts, video, blogs, wikis, RSS feeds, standards conformance, linking to a human resources information system, and more.

Sustainability and MOOCs in Historical Perspective

But, a few preliminaries before I start the talk, because it's all about open education. :) This presentation is available now at that website. One of the things we learned was the tension that exists between open online resources and commercial resources. It came, over time, to be called Open Educational Resources.

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.

Nobody will be fooled well, except maybe purchasers of fad educational products.
