open source workers

Harold Jarche

Openness enables knowledge-sharing, which fosters innovation through a diversity of ideas. Trust emerges in networks that are open and transparent. This is how open source software is developed. There are lessons to learn for open source work. Consider open source software versus software as a service. An open source network needs a core operating system that is open and transparent. This makes it open for disruption.

Open Source eLearning Tools

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. In addition, she indicates if they are free or cost money – which is not quite the same thing as open source. Beyond that, probably the best thing to do is to use eLearning Learning to go through it’s open source eLearning and open source eLearning Tools.

Open Source Strategic Planning

Beth Kanter

Paul Connolly, who has been a guest blogger on this blog before , covered the session on Open Source Strategic Planning. In 2009, the foundation began by harvesting almost a thousand proposals for future directions from community members through online crowd-sourcing. Next, consultants helped facilitate an asynchronous process involving a wide set of stakeholders using an online wiki to write and edit sections of the plan.

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.

Interesting Distribute Publishing Model and Open Source

Tony Karrer

(via Stephen Downes ) Impact of Open Source Software on Education, Series Launch is interesting both because of the publishing model and because of the content. What they've done is recruit authors who are going to publish (via a blog) something between a blog post, interview and an article every other week on a particular topic - in this case Open Source.

zoom is not the problem — meetings are

Harold Jarche

Asynchronous communication — threaded discussions, blogs, and wikis — was always part of my work conversations. Quite often, an alternative would be more effective than calling a meeting — e.g. one-on-one conversation, email, wiki, blog, discussion thread, etc. Liberating Structures offer 33 open source methods for convening meetings for different purposes. When all you have is Zoom, every work-from-home office looks like an endless face-to-face video call.

the reality of missing out

Harold Jarche

When Tim Berners-Lee invented the Worldwide Web he made it free and open source, so others could build upon it. In the early days it was quite open with individuals sharing knowledge through blogging and collectively building knowledge with wikis, the largest being Wikipedia. Meanwhile, many people found blogs to be too much work, and wikis to be confusing.

Keeping the faith?

Dave Snowden

The decision we made is the make the incipient wiki on methods open-source (I suspect we will be there by the new year along with some other significant initiatives) which means that a community can develop around their use. That became a boundary that had to go, hence the shift to making them open. The nice thing about a wiki is that the source material is always there in its current form and the talk pages allow for discussion and resolution.

Physical aporia

Dave Snowden

Those are all being documented at the moment in an open-source wiki and we will shortly start a weekly training slot around them that will last to May, but it is not the same thing. In fact, I generally ignore most such opening exercises.

Moodle Course Conversion

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Learning as Artifact Creation

George Siemens

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. If I lecture on the development of open learning and open source technologies, I’m presenting my voice, my priorities, my values. Digitization is deceptive in that the deep impact isn’t readily observable.

On the Internet, nobody knows you’re a suit

Harold Jarche

Using wikis or Google Documents means that everyone can see what the others have contributed. I was able to look at the revision history of the wiki and show that they had not even contributed on those issues. The collaborative, networked enterprise saw its birth in open source software projects. From these widely dispersed groups we got blogs, wikis and micro-sharing as tools to help get things done.
