Open Education, MOOCs, and Opportunities

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Reusable Learning Resources The initial development of online learning technology began at scale with the development of the learning management system (LMS) in the mid-1990s. These systems were modeled on distance education resources such as programmed texts and course workbooks. Technological systems based on these designs were first developed by the aviation industry, in the form of the AICC specification (Aviation Industry Computer Based Training (CBT) Committee).

Design Elements in a Personal Learning Environment

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

In this paper I would like to address the core design elements in the development of a personal learning architecture being developed in the National Research Council''s Learning and Performance Support Systems program. NRC''s Learning and Performance Support Systems program touches on all parts of Canada''s learning technology, but has the most direct impact on the learning management system (LMS) sector.

Sustainability and MOOCs in Historical Perspective

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

In the mid-1990s, people began to develop learning management systems. I'm sure you're all familiar with learning management systems. In addition to this commercial stream, we had the open-source stream and, most especially, learning management systems called Moodle, which I'm sure you may be familiar with, and Sakai, which is less common, but was created by a consortium of American universities. So we had two models for learning management systems.

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

Neither the JSTOR nor RECAP downloads were cases of hacking in the sense of forcing your way into a system by getting around technical barriers. 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.

A personal learning journey

Harold Jarche

I became interested in knowledge management (KM) as I was introduced to it in the mid 1990’s while practising instructional systems design (ISD) and human performance technology (HPT) in the military. I continued to work with enterprise knowledge repositories and KM related projects until I started freelancing in 2003 and was faced with the challenge of creating my own knowledge management system with a minimal budget.

Knowledge sharing, one at a time

The practitioners I talked to about PPI [Personal Productivity Improvement] said they would love to participate in PPI coaching, provided it was focused on the content on their own desktops and hard drives, and not the stuff in the central repositories.

PKM – start small

Harold Jarche

If an organization or department decided to put everyone’s bookmarks into a social application it would make for a large repository of links. The department responsible could then look at all of these bookmarks, which might be on a variety of systems (e.g. delicious , diigo ) and bring them together with RSS and publish them to a central web page.

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. The research themes combine to produce the " TeleLearning Operation System -TELOS."

A type of technology called 'recommender systems' was employed to do everything from pick music to match you with your perfect date. A recommender system links three different types of data: a description of a resource, a description of a person, and an evaluation or ranking. 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. For a description of edu_RSS see here.

It wasn't clear to me at first how the system would support multiple authors, but it turns out that CCK does it quite nicely. There are several counters: - menu_mid - users_uid - node_nid - node_revisions_vid - comments_cid The naming system is pretty intuitive; the first part is the name of the table, and the second is the name of the field. Event Event is a content type I devoted a fair amount of time to in my previous system and haven't quite got down.

From purely, the tactical point of view, it would not do to have clutter (in content) and the best way of avoiding said clutter is to have such a structured system in place which does not allow organizational members to add to the entire mess.
