What I Learned From Designing and Developing E-Learning

Techno-News BlogSometimes my designs worked and sometimes they did not. I learned what participants liked and what they did not like through course evaluations and from talk around the office. The true results, however, showed on the job. It didn’t take long for me to realize that a decent e-learning program requires more than a set of clickable PowerPoint slides. More...

Span the Silos for Comprehensive Distance Education

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Judy Baker: Span the Silos for Comprehensive Distance Education, EDUCAUSE Blogs September 21, 2005

The author taps into a common problem: departments that operate independently tend to remain insular, and staff within those departments remain unaware of the nature and work of the other department. The solution proposed - job shadowing, wherein an employee from one department shadows one from another department for a day or so - is less satisfactory. It takes too much time and is too disruptive, with too nebulous a gain, for most employees to contemplate. More...

OK, so 1500 students walked out of class at DeWitt Clinton High School in the Bronx. Nothing really unusual. More interesting is that they used an online sevice, Sconex, to organize it. More...

E-Learning 2.0

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. E-Learning 2.0

September 16, 2005 I spent the day at the Canadian Heritage Information Network engaged in a lengthy and free-wheeling discussion of the concepts surrounding E-Learning 2.0 Although the PowerPoint Slides for my presentation today are basically the same as those I used in Edmonton a few months ago, the discussio0n was much more wide ranging. Audio segments (each about an hour): Part One, Part Two, Part Three. More...

What E-Learning 2.0 means To You

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. What E-Learning 2.0 means To You

September 14, 2005 PowerPoint Slides and MP3 Audio of my presentation today at the Transitions in Advanced Learning Conference in Ottawa. In this talk I discuss the changing nature of knowledge and learning, illustrate how this changing nature leads to what is being called Web 2.0o, and outline the nature and success factors involved in designing learning resources and services in this environment. the presentation is a bit uneven - my brilliant opening fell completely flat, and the more theory-oriented approach didn't resonate (not at first, to be sure). And maybe it was the wrong message for this mostly private-sector group. But - in my view - it's a message the e-learning industry in Canada needs to hear, and if that means a rocky and difficult presentation, then I will suffer it. [Comment]
Learning Trends and the Learning Imperative
September 14, 2005 Summary of this presentation by Elliott Masie, president of the Masie Center, at the Transitions in Advanced Learning Conference in Ottawa. To be involved in learning today, argues Masie, is to be involved in the process of change. And this requires a different and powerful view of learning - extreme learning. This talk describes six dimensions or components of extreme learning. [Comment]

Details on Marquette's Participation in BSA's "Define the Line" Program

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Eric Goldman: Details on Marquette's Participation in BSA's "Define the Line" Program September 13, 2005

Define the Line is an anti file sharing initiative launched by commercial software companies; last spring they announced a campus initiative, which this item update. The title is a bit misleading; few additional details are available, save for news about the distribution of posters, brochures and handouts, and the discussion of copyright infringement at a Campus Safety seminar.
