New Media Literacies in Learning Landscapes

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. New Media Literacies in Learning Landscapes
I am still in San Jose for the Brandon Hall conference. I fly out of here first thing tomorrow morning, get home very late at night, recover for a day, then head to Prince Edward Island for the New Media Literacies in Learning Landscapes Institute conference being organized by Dave Cormier of Ed Tech Talk fame. If you're in the Maritimes this is one you don't want to miss, I think. More...

Fausses nouvelles, manipulation de l’information : comment lutter contre les "fake news" ?

Citizen Media: A Progress Report

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Citizen Media: A Progress Report
Worthwhile and studiously accurate summation of the state of the (news) media at this point of the information revolution. I agree with Gillmor's assessment: "We need much more experimentation in journalism and community information projects. The business models are, at best, uncertain - and some notable failures are discouraging". More...

Digital Media: What Went Wrong

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Digital Media: What Went Wrong
Edmund Lee, New York Times, Medium, 2019/02/19
The big news in digital media recently has been the waves of layoffs at such stalwarts as BuzzFeed, HuffPost, and Vice. These were companies people thought had figured out the news business. It prompted MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes to ask “What if there is literally no profitable model for digital news?” We see the same story in education, but moving at a slower pace.  It's described as a "nightmarish vision" in today's Inside Higher Ed. In today's edition of the Chronicle's The Edge, Scott Carlson outlines the same case with respect to higher education. More...

VON Spiel: It'S Our TV

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. VON Spiel: It'S Our TV
I frequently disagree with Jeff Jarvis, as he comes from some place where advertising is good and online media is all about business. But he also picks up technology trends really well and sees through to the essence of the thing. As in, for example, this post. "We are taking over TV," he writes. "We are reinventing TV... And this means we have a great opportunity to reinvent TV from scratch..." How? Well, this is where we disagree: "Blogs didn't do it right. Not the economic side of the equation. We bloggers make it extremely difficult for advertisers to love us..." Seems to me, that's exactly what we did get right. Advertising (even if spread through the long tail) is a mass phenomeon - it is about privileged messages exerting unearned influence through the network. More...

CADE Media Festival

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. CADE Media Festival
I don't usually enter contests, but CADE is having a multimedia content this year and I'm proud of a video I did this year - it has more than 7,000 views, and it's 30 minutes long - so there you have it. Oh sure, maybe I shouldn't be proud of it, but I am. It's the first real video that I've done, and I did it in order to show that you could train yourself and do quality multimedia with basic tools and self-learning. But... what I get instead is an object lesson in how not to run a multimedia contest. First of all, there's no entry category for individuals, which is what mine would be. Second, the application form is a PDF, that you download and... what, I guess print and mail? Third, there's an entry fee. This covers, what, the $10 plaque the winner gets? And fourth, "Video programs, although mastered on various formats, must be submitted on VHS Videotape." I'm not sure what this means - I have a video, must I convert it to videotape? So - no entry. Here's a better idea: allow people to submit multimedia the way they do academic papers (why oh why do conferences always accept only 'papers'). Review the proposed submissions. They can present their multimedia, then discuss it. More...
