The Living Arts

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. The Living Arts
Brad Carson has very kindly sent along a 1 megabyte version of this PowerPoint presentation - the talk I gave in Guelph - to replace the 7 megabyte version I posted last week. He also tells me how I could have done it in a few seconds myself: "1. Double-click an image in the presentation; 2. Click the 'Compress' button; 3. Select 'All Pictures in document' and 'Web/Screen resolution'; 4. Click OK; 5. Save (with a different filename if you want to be safe), compare and marvel."

E-Learning 2.0

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. E-Learning 2.0
Slides from my online presentation today for the Canadian Institute for Distance Education Research (CIDER). I argue that e-learning is evolving into a distributed and learner centered mode. You'll notice that they look a lot like the last three sections from the presentation I gave a couple of days ago (except these have been optimised for easy download). The recording from the session, which was held using Elluminate, should be available on the CIDER website soon. By Stephen Downes, Stephen's Web, June 3, 2005 [Refer][Research][Reflect]. More...

Intel Quietly Adds DRM to New Chips

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Intel Quietly Adds DRM to New Chips
Normally when a chip manufacturer introduces a revolutionary new feature it launches an advertising blitz. When it launches a feature none of its curtomers want, however, it keeps pretty quiet about it. That has been the case with Intel and its very quiet introduction of digital rights management (DRM) into some of its new processors. More...
