Mactaquac

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Mactaquac
Well there was no room at the inn in Fredericton, so I've been exiled to Mactaquac for an evening. Mind you, it didn't take a lot of arm twisting to get me to spend a day in the country on a beautiful spring day. So these are my photos from Mactaquac, in the Saint John River valey, about 20 minutes west of Fredericton. Enjoy. By Stephen Downes, Stephen's Web, May 18, 2005 [Refer][Research][Reflect]. More...

Outfoxed

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Outfoxed
This is a very important development, probably the closest thing to the semantic social network I've seen, and absolutely the way forward. Study this item carefully. Outfoxed "uses your network of trusted friends and experts to help you find the good stuff and avoid the bad."

New Communication and Information Technologies Emerging in the Workplace

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. New Communication and Information Technologies Emerging in the Workplace
Though the presenters made no effort to dazzle us with demos, I quite enjoyed this presentation, a rare behind the scenes look at the development and deployment of a person alized e-learning system for call centre employees at a major bank. Of course, you could never get away with a system like this - which interrupts your slow time with required q15-minute training sessions - in anything outside a command environment. Still, some of the concepts are transferrable and I thought the presentation was as useful for its glimpse inside banking culture as inside their e-learning system. This link is to my summary of the presentation. By Stephen Downes (summary), Stephen's Web, May 16, 2005 [Refer][Research][Reflect]. More...
