Designing Blogs for Education

Designing Blogs for Education
It's written entirely in point form and readers must unfortunately deduce the links to look at the examples, but this presentation on the educational use of blogs is a fascinating exploration. See especially the sections on 'what is an education blog', 'issues', and 'features of my education blog'. More...

Learning Object Production and Implementation: UT Telecampus

Learning Object Production and Implementation: UT Telecampus
The article appears to have an editing malfunction near the beginning, but stick with it as the people interviewed - Jennifer Rees and Michael Anderson of the University of Texas - offer some good insites on the practicalities of implementing learning objects learned during the course of a large scale course development project using learning objects.

The Future of Online Learning and Knowledge Networks

The Future of Online Learning and Knowledge Networks
Slides from my presentation at education.au in Adelaide today (yesterday?). I outline the 'consensus view' (or perhaps, the 'orthodox view') of learning objects, repositories and federated search, outline why I think this view misreads the marketplace, technology, business models and convergence on the internet, and outline my own distributed search and management proposal. I have something like five hours of audio from yesterday; it too will be available in the future. By Stephen Downes, Stephen's Web, September 29, 2004 [Refer][Research][Reflect]. More...

Connectivity and Learning in Canadian Schools

Connectivity and Learning in Canadian Schools
I have utterly no hope of downloading this with my current state of connectivity (at least, not while Derek Morrison's paper downloads, my slides upload, my email is loaded, and my chat window is running). More...

NET*Working 2004 Program Now Online!

NET*Working 2004 Program Now Online!
As the headline suggests, the Net*Working program is now online... you'll have to do some hopping around to find all the events, there's a lot there (a single plain-text page with everything would be very useful, but I couldn't find a link anywhere). I thought I was doing something on the 8th but apparently not. More...

E-Learning Frameworks and Tools: Is it too late? - The Director's Cut
I missed this item when I was toodling around over the Pacific, but you shouldn't. This is a first-rate paper looking at plans for JISC, the state of e-learning technology, and the impending roll-out of web services. More...

Blogs, Learning Objects, and Other Cool Stuff

Blogs, Learning Objects, and Other Cool Stuff
As promised, today's OLDaily comes to you live from Uluru - see here for a picture - and I lead it off with slides used for my talk at Alice Springs (and broadcast to nine other learning centers throughout the Australian Outback) this morning. I know it's a bit early for the Monday OLDaily but there's no reason to wait - no guarantees on when Tuesday's will be, though, as I am back in Alice Springs for a chat tomorrow, then off to Adelaide tomorrow evening for meetings Wednesday.

The Real Threat of Blogs

The Real Threat of Blogs
In my talks here in Australia I have recommended that people read Douglas Rushkoff. It's worth mentioning in passing that he also has a blog, which he updates from time to time. His observations often get to the heart of the matter. More...

And Speaking of the Ripping and Mixing...
Stew. That's a good word for what Alan Levine is describing. Blogdigger is a service very similar to Edu_RSS that allows you to define a set of feeds to be harvested and which sends out topic-specific feeds. More...

Improv Education

Improv Education
Jay Cross gts funky with his take on personalized learning that is genuinely personalized (as opposed to, say, some swicthes that allow you to change the font, or a pretest that will channel the student into one or another predefined learning stream). More...
