By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. JRon Yanosky: Identity Management: The State of the Practice in Higher Education, ECAR / EDUCAUSE December 13, 2005

Useful presentation surveying the use of and plans for identity management at (mostly) U.S. universities.

Sony Anti-customer Technology Roundup and Time-line

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Cory Doctorow: Sony Anti-customer Technology Roundup and Time-line, Boing Boing November 25, 2005

Good wrap-up of the events and fallout surrounding the Sony rootkit (don't forget to check out part 2 and part 3). It is worth noting, again, that the Sony debacle is just the tip of the iceberg. Other companies are working on similar technology, and a Sony rootkit-style computing environment is what publishers and some DRM-advocates are seeking to achieve. More...

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Michael Feldstein: LMOS Services and Service Brokers, Part II, E-Literate November 21, 2005

Some discussion of what a service-oriented learning management operating system would look like. Nice example, showing clearly the role of RSS in the system and illustrating how a student's stand-along blog, along with simple identity management, could integrate with the learning management system's record-keeping and discussion systems. More...

Wake-Up Call: Open Source LMS

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Sam S. Adkins: Wake-Up Call: Open Source LMS, Learning Circuits October 21, 2005

Great article, filled with depth and insight, on the balance between open source and proprietary learning management systems (LMS). Arguing that open source systems can compete when the market reaches commodity stage and when open source becomes more innovative, author Sam Adkins suggests that we may be at that crossover point. More...

On achève bien les managers !

Focus RH - Gestion de carrière et évolution professionnellePar Didier Pitelet. Devenir manager a longtemps été l’objectif de la plupart des personnes ambitieuses, et souvent la voie royale de toute bonne carrière ; la fameuse échelle sociale passait par la responsabilité managériale visant un jour pour les meilleurs l’accession au "Saint des Saints", le comité de direction.

Est-ce au manager de "donner du sens"?

Focus RH - Gestion de carrière et évolution professionnellePar André Perret. La quasi-totalité des articles ou des ouvrages sur le management indiquent que les bonnes pratiques demandent aux managers de "donner du sens" au travail des collaborateurs. Mais est-ce la bonne formule ? Il doit être possible de relier cette observation à deux autres avant d’en ressortir un début de conclusion. Plus...

Create vs. Build -- Publishers and Their LMS Dilemma

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Create vs. Build -- Publishers and Their LMS Dilemma
If I had to define 'useless' it would probably include a description of learning platforms created by publishers exclusively for their own products.

Michele Givens, a general manager at Education Week magazine, explains the organization's decision to begin charging subscription fees.
