Open Education, MOOCs, and Opportunities

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

This was supported using a technology called Rich Site Summary (RSS), co-developed by Netscape and Dave Winer. RSS went through several early versions: RSS 0.91, which was the first production version, RSS 1.0, which used a web technology called Resource Description Framework (RDF), and RSS 2.0, Technology supporting open archives, called OAI, to create lists of academic journal articles in repositories for retrieval and distribution.

1998 – Wikis Also: CMSs, RSS I didn't bother with Wikis. Instead, for me, 1998 was the year of RSS and content syndication. I did a lot of work with RSS, combining it with content management systems (CMS). For me, 2002 was the year of learning object repository networks.

Aaron Swartz was not a hacker. He was a builder.

David Weinberger

As Alex Stamos makes clear , there were no technical, legal, or contractual barriers preventing Aaron from downloading as many articles in the JSTOR repository as he wanted, other than the possibility that Aaron was trespassing, and even that is questionable. He was a builder: Aaron helped build the RSS standard that enabled a rush of information and ideas — what we blandly call “content” — to be distributed, encountered, and re-distributed.

NRC''s track record in this sector includes the leadership role it played in the eduSource network of learning object repositories, the Sifter/Filter content recommender later commercialized as Racofi, sentiment analysis in learning, the Synergic3 collaborative workflow system, and more.

We needed both Knex and SQLite3 for the database, and in addition, feed-parser to parse the RSS feed. Anyhow, I also went a bit beyond the content of the course because it never did show how to find out what values are contained in the RSS feed item (if you print news.keys() you get a nice list) and how to get the link in the RSS feed item ( news['link'] ).

A number of MOOCs have used gRSShopper, an application that harvests RSS feeds created by participant platforms, organizes the material, and redistributes it as a daily email newsletter and RSS feed.

The site looks like an average edublog, is about as informed, and even has 'blogs', though an apparent absence of RSS feeds. Funded by CANARIE , it spend something like $6 million to produce a network of learning object repositories in Canada. This in turn was followed by LORNet , involving many of the same people, which is also a network of learning object repositories. I want to first state that I am sympathetic with Terry Anderson's plaint.

What I'm Working On

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

You don't notice this so much in smallish repositories of only tens of thousands of items. The first, and most important, of these formats, was RSS. I have been involved in RSS for a very long time, since the beginning (my feed was Netscape Netcenter feed number 31). As we looked at the use of RSS to syndicate resources, and the use of metadata to describe resources, it became clear that content syndication would best be supported by what may be known as distributed metadata.
