A Personal Learning Platform

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

This to me is probably the best explanation of how I think we should be using open educational resources in learning. The idea here is that open educational resources are something that we create and work with and share and communicate with rather than pre-structured academic contents.

The host is also Chris Lydon, a friend whose podcast pionering owes to collaboration with Dave Winer , who invented the form of RSS used by nearly all the world’s podcasters, and who wrote my third recommended post, Working Together, in 2019. I want to point to three great posts. First is Larry Lessig ‘s Podcasting and the Slow Democracy Movement.

Open as in commons, not garden

Harold Jarche

I have been a proponent of the open web and open source software for the past decade and more. This week Google announced that it will close down Google Reader, an RSS aggregator that I have found useful, after Bloglines went offline and then changed its operating model. I will also look for good platforms that are either open source, like wordpress.org , which powers this site, or services that charge a fee and cater to their customers.

Working on Internet Time

Harold Jarche

One of the earliest knowledge guilds was the open source community which developed many of the communication tools and processes used by knowledge artisans today: distributed work; results-only work environments (your code speaks for you); RSS, blogs & wikis for sharing; agile programming; flattened hierarchies, etc. 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.

Daniel on MOOCs

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Open’ because that’s how we roll. Three major platforms are used for cMOOCs, all of which are free and open source software: 1. I previously posted an item on Sir John Daniel's discussion of MOOCs, but I have added more extensive comments on Tony Bate's review - I rather suspect it is much more likely to be read by him there than on any site of mine. Here is thus the comment I posted: > I will be interested though (as will the author) in your responses to the paper.

RSS 132

Etiquette for sharing

Harold Jarche

There are now many to choose from, including open source and full-service analytics. For example, if your site exports its RSS feed using something like Google’s Feedburner, then the link people click on in their aggregators has extra information attached; so you can be tracked. utm_source=feedburner … I use Google Analytics on this site and understand why people want to see their social media traffic. Many people like to share things online.

The Smart Worker : shares what s/he learns

Jane Hart

People often cite Wikipedia as a unreliable source since it is a “collaborative&# encyclopaedia. “Dare2Share allows BT employees to learn from each other by rapidly capturing and spreading learning throughout the organization in the form of podcasts, discussion threads, blogs, RSS feeds and other traditional knowledge assets (documents, courses and portals).&# [ BT Dares to share ]. Intelpedia is hosted on the open source MediaWiki software. Tweet.

Born in a storm

Harold Jarche

Current areas of interest include social networking applications, like blogs, wikis and the use of RSS feeds, which is one reason why I have this blog; to practise what I preach. I’m also interested in the use of open source software platforms for learning. Six years ago, on 19 February 2004, states of emergency were declared in Nova Scotia and PEI after a prolonged blizzard, later named White Juan , dumped as much as 95 centimetres of snow.

Community Portals

Harold Jarche

RSS has blown up the content-only portal funded through advertising but the wide adoption of Twitter is giving content publishers a new push mechanism to get eyeballs to their sites. I wonder if this will significantly change the use and utility of RSS? I’ve noticed that proprietary portal software is still being sold for lots of money and there are several strong open source projects available too.

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The practical implementation of connectivism is the massive open online course, or MOOC. We had about 170 blogs created to support the course, and we aggregated these using RSS – content syndication supporting online learning. The CCK08 course and all the other courses we have developed since have been based on open educational resources (OERs). I knew about open educational resources before anyone knew what the term meant. It’s open online learning generally.

Science and Society

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

This is my motivation for working toward open education and open educational resources. Part of this is open source software and shareware, which I had used since my early days on a computer. This interest in computers in open education convinced me that they could be used to provide access beyond what in-person classes could provide. So they have retreated from open online education, while decentralized courses continue to be offered informally and for free.

Open Education, MOOCs, and Opportunities

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

These were designed originally by organizations such as the Open University, in Britain, and Canada''s Athabasca University. Open Education Resources Alongside the development of educational technologies is an equally important movement to support open educational resources. This movement predates the development of the world wide web in 1994, as seen for example in the Gutenberg Project, an open access archive of public domain works of classic literature.

Introduction to Social Networking

Harold Jarche

Now open to anyone, you will still find that Facebook is the preferred network for Millenials who see the encroachment of Boomers and, to a lesser extent, Gen X into the network as cause for some alarm. Open source gives you something extra though, and that is the ability to take the whole application, source code and all, and move it or even modify it. For instance, this website is on WordPress , an open source blogging platform.

Learning Electron - Part 2

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

According to Google search, Angular is "a TypeScript -based open-source front-end web application framework led by the Angular Team at Google and by a community of individuals and corporations." It also has a lot of interactivity, doing things like opening tabs and launching modal windows. We needed both Knex and SQLite3 for the database, and in addition, feed-parser to parse the RSS feed.

Once more, across that chasm

Harold Jarche

In 2005 I wrote that these technologies were ready to cross the chasm: Blogs (with some difficulties ) & RSS. Open Source. … Geoffrey Moore’s analogy of “ crossing the chasm ” is that any new technology is quickly adopted by innovators and early adopters, but there is a chasm to cross in order to get the more pragmatic majority to adopt the new technology. For marketing, this is the real challenge – can the new product get widespread acceptance?

The Role of Open Educational Resources in Personal Learning

Presented to the Best Practices in Upgrading Online,Calgary, via Adobe Connect, March 29, 2011 The very first thing I want to do is to counter thedisclaimer that frightened me as this session opened, it was very loud, andsaid all kinds of things about how this was all private and cannot be shared.You can share this presentation all you want. I do want to talk about the role of open educationalresources in personal learning. What does it mean to say thatour network is open?

Existing Applications

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It makes me think, though, that i should rename Edu_RSS. All along I have been designing Edu_RSS as a *personal* tool. I'll set up a hosting service at some point in the future to show people what I mean by that (just waiting for NRC approval to open source it). RSS readers have always been, right from the very beginning, based on subscribing to individual 'channels' - but doing it this way leads straight to a star system, a world of A-listers and also-rans.

How to Get the Greatest ROI from eLearning

TOPYX LMS

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.

Eudora is no longer a paid product, now Open Source. I haven’t opened up IE in months. These all leverage RSS. Moodle, while pretty visually ugly, is easy to set up and is fabulously open source, as is Drupal. Moodle - open source “learning management system&# but I use it simply as a collaboration space.

David Weinberger

There is an RSS feed on the page, but the machine-readable data in it does not include calendar info. RSS feeds tend to be used to syndicate content, not data. iCalendar is the RSS of calendars, Jon says. Jon is writing for Azure (Microsoft’s cloud server), but it’s open source. I should be the authoritative, controlling source of my data. Likewise, you could publish a book review and syndicate it to various e-library sources.

Using a CMS to Make Your Website Social

Beth Kanter

Along with updates to the four systems we reviewed in the past, we’ve added seven new open source and proprietary systems to provide nonprofits with a much broader scope of the types of systems available to them. Letting them subscribe to your site content through RSS feeds or email can help them ensure they’re getting the most-update information from your organization with ease and convenience.

Sustainability and MOOCs in Historical Perspective

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

We're going to talk about the factors that led to the development of the Massive Open Online Course and Connectivism and the new phenomena in learning today. 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.
