By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. George Siemens, Stephen Downes, Jeff Lebow and Dave Cormier[Edit][Delete]: Connectivism and Connected Knowledge, Elearnspace [Edit][Delete]ELearnSpace [Edit][Delete] February 1, 2006

[link: 2 Hits] George Siemens has posted a transcript of our conversation from Sunday. It's quite a good read (in my humble opinion). And it takes a lot less time to get through than listening to the audio. [Tags: ] [Comment] [Edit]. More...

DIT goes live with first Irish MOOC

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. DIT goes live with first Irish MOOC
Dublin Institute of Technology, April 25, 2013
I found it interesting to look in and around what was advertised today as the "first Irish MOOC" (I have no idea whether that's true). It is offered by the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) and facilitated by DIT staff member Anne Green. But it appears to have been developed in Singapore (and that's where the advertising came from), at a company called GetReskilled, which specialized in Pharmaceutical and medical device industry; they have a list of short self-paced courses they offer prospective students. More...

The ROLE Sandbox

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. The ROLE Sandbox
ROLE - Responsive Open Learning Environments, April 25, 2013
I saw this in my LinkedIn stream today: "The ROLE Sandbox (http://role-sandbox.eu) is a permanent hosting environment for widget-based personal learning environments. Everybody is welcome to create or join learning spaces in the ROLE sandbox. Access is easy. Just register or use your OpenID. Connect to the ROLE widget store to install widget bundles to learn about languages or science. Give feedback on everything you like or dislike using the 'Idea' button." Sign-in didn't work; I had to use my Google ID. More...

Of Machine Guns and MOOCs: 21st Century Engineering Disasters

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Of Machine Guns and MOOCs: 21st Century Engineering Disasters
Pat Lockley, Hybrid Pedagogy, April 25, 2013
As someone heavily implicated in the development of MOOCs, I have to be accountable if, as this author suggests, the impact of the MOOC is more skin to that of the machine gun than to anything that would actually help massive numbers of people. But I am not a member of the military-industrial complex (nor even a particularly good public servant) and it is not with the militarization of learning in mind that the MOOC was developed (the author's allusions to COBOL and SCORM, neither of which have anything to to with MOOCs, notwithstanding).

Tin Can API Version 1.0 Released

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Tin Can API Version 1.0 Released
Rustici, April 25, 2013
The US-based Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) led the development of a project now called the Experience API, the purpose of which is to formalize the recording of learner interactions with learning resources. The non-ADL version of this is the Tin Can API, featured here by Rustici software (though so far as I can tell, Experience API and Tin Can API are the same thing). Tomorrow (Friday) will feature the launch of the Tin Can API version 1.0 specification. Thanks to Andy Whitaker for sending me the Tin Can information. More...

The Future of Digital Identity

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. The Future of Digital Identity
Hans de Zwart, Technology, Innovation, Education, April 25, 2013
Identity is an ongoing concern, both in the news and in our daily lives. Digital identity creates constraints around what would once have been an anonymous activity - buying a magazine, for example - while at the same time streamlining others - like online banking, for example. Surveillance and biometrics solve serious criminal threats, but when used to constrain legal demonstration, pose the possibility of suppression. More...

News of the Week: Robo-Grading Debate, MOOCs Promoting Peer Collaboration & New Ed-Tech Tool

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. News of the Week: Robo-Grading Debate, MOOCs Promoting Peer Collaboration & New Ed-Tech Tool
Debbie Morrison, online learning insights, April 21, 2013
This is a summary article of the week's events in educational technology, but it contains a good summary of the debate around (what I guess we are now calling) robo-grading, including links to a NY Times article (with more than 1000 comments), a petition against robo-grading, and arguments against edX on the basis of robo-grading. The same article looks at a new platform called NovoEd , including challenges posed by peer grading. More...
