Design Bash: Moving Towards Learning Design Interoperability

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Design Bash: Moving Towards Learning Design Interoperability
The 'design bash' concept is a good idea in itself, but I am highlighting this post because of the way it describes three types of interoperability: conceptual, semantic and syntactic. Now I wouldn't define these as the author does. I think semantic interoperability has to do with meaning, and not whether or not a given function is present. This, along with interoperability of format, should be classified as syntactic interoperability. That also allows us to classify what the author calls 'conceptual' interoperability as a type of semantic interoperability. Why is this rewriting important? Because while I think syntactic interoperability is a good idea, I think striving for semantic interoperability is dangerous and misguided. More...

Designing Student Aid Programs from Scratch (2)

Résultat de recherche d'images pour "hepi"For decades, student loans only worked one way: on a regular amortization basis.  If you borrow, you repay on a regular monthly basis after graduation, just like one pays a regular amount each month on a mortgage.  Even within this framework, there are a lot of policy elements one can adjust.
