Tony Karrer

I was just asked about trends in open source for eLearning and particularly open source eLearning tools. Probably one of the better sources on this is Jane Hart’s Instructional Tools Directory. You can find a long list of tools broken into authoring tools, games/simulations, quiz/test tools, social media, delivery platforms, tracking and whether they support mobile.

Elgg: it’s a community effort

Harold Jarche

This weekend I noticed a tweet from Alec Couros about some issues with the Ning social networking platform. This brought me to reflect, once again, how important an open source framework is as we move more of our computing to the cloud. While Ning may be free, it is not open source, and the company can make changes at will, just like Facebook, Google or Twitter may do.

What tools should we learn?

Harold Jarche

Social Bookmarks. Perhaps the simplest way to start sharing organisational knowledge is with social bookmarks. Many people still have their list of Bookmarks/Favourites in their web browser, but when they’re not at their computer these links aren’t accessible. Enter the social bookmark. Social bookmarks are web sites that let you create an account in order to save web pages. Blogging is my main source of learning,” she says.

Sense-making with PKM

Harold Jarche

People learn socially. For centuries, knowledge exchanges were limited to elites but we now have access to world’s largest and most open exchange ever created. Not only that, it may be our social responsibility to be contributors to our common knowledge. OS = open source. Social. Bookmarks. Social. My annotated bookmarks and my blog are the first places I search when I have an article or report to write.

He started blogging in 2000 while I jumped in in 2002, so we were part of an initially small but burgeoning community exploring online connections before and as modern social media started to emerge. So a network is this very loose, open thing.

The employee goes to Google, dives into Wikipedia and other open source efforts. Social bookmarking, searching browsing trails, capture of communications as clues to expertise.

New Technology Supporting Informal Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Downes, 2007) We need to consider learners not only as the subjects of learning, entities to whom we deliver learning content, but also the sources of learning, functioning as the perceptual input for the wider network. Drupal, an open source content management system, enables the creation of individual accounts, the creation of discussion posts and pages and other content, and the sharing of this content online with other community members.
