SmarterChild...Your IM Buddy

SmarterChild...Your IM Buddy
The importance of this item isn't the cute toy, it is, as Marc Oehlert observes, "the integration into workflow." he writes, "People are already using IM (Instant Messaging) more and more in their daily routine so the idea of making automated knowledge bases available via a well done chat bot is dead on." Along these lines, James Farmer explores several multiple-Account IM clients. More...

Infrae 'Railroad Repository' for Plone or Zope

Infrae 'Railroad Repository' for Plone or Zope
Scott Leslie writes, "I am really not sure why I haven't seen more of this, as the longer I look at the LOR problem the more sense it makes to me that 'conventional' repositories can be reasonably easily built on the back of existing (large and relatively stable) open source Content Management Systems." Gosh yes. More...

Developing a University Course For On-line Delivery Based on Learning Objects: From Ideals to Compromises

Developing a University Course For On-line Delivery Based on Learning Objects: From Ideals to Compromises
Scott Leslie finally located this item after a search, and we're glad he took the time. The essay contains interesting documentation of an instructor and his assistant's attempt to create an online business course using learning objects. After a search through repositories proved fruitless, after scouring the web for free resources turned up little of value, and after copyright and delivery issues threw additional roadbloacks, the authors gave up and bought a prepackaged course with book and online support.

Public Release of Sakai Collaboration and Learning Environment

Public Release of Sakai Collaboration and Learning Environment
From the announcement: "The Sakai Project today releases its open source Collaboration and Learning Environment (CLE) software to the public. Members of the Sakai Educational Partners Program (SEPP) have been reviewing the beta version of the software since their highly successful conference with 170 attendees in June. This release to the public is Sakai Release Candidate 1 (RC1), and it puts the full code in the hands of any institution that wishes to begin using or understanding the Sakai software." The website asserts in nummerous locations that the software is open source, but appears nowhere to specify whether this means GPL or something else. More...

After IE Is Dead Is The Google Browser Next?

After IE Is Dead Is The Google Browser Next?
Robin Good waxes poetic about Google's desktop search - a little toolbar that sits in your taskbar and gives you instant access to search without having to launch your browser. Instead, it launches a Google Browser; because of this capacity Good notes "the Google browser appears to me as a significant and insofar unnoticed competitive weapon in Google's hands." Never one to leave things alone, I quickly added Edu_RSS and OLDaily to the custom searches. More...

Creation of a Learning Landscape: Weblogging and Social Networking in the Context of E-Portfolios

Creation of a Learning Landscape: Weblogging and Social Networking in the Context of E-Portfolios
The authors are responding to what appears to be an irresistable trend in learning, the tendency to want to apply "standards, controls and criteria" to new learning technology and to fix it firmly to that bastion of traditional learning, the course. More...
