A Framework for Modern Workplace Learning 2019

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. A Framework for Modern Workplace Learning 2019
Jane Hart, Modern Workplace Learning, 2019/02/12
This is chapter 1 of a longer work (you'll have to pay for subsequent chapters, and they're not written yet) and a good introduction to the topic of modern workplace learning. The linchpin is the new framework (presented in a frustratingly small diagram; a big version would help tired old eyes like mine) where "everyone is responsible for their own continuous improvement, learning and development." In particular, Hart envisions a new role, "Modern Learning Advisors," who "enable and support learningby (a) helping individuals build modern learning skills, organize & manage their own self-development, and (b) helping managers and their teams get the most out of daily work experiences".

Roadmap to becoming a Solid Developer in 2019

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Roadmap to becoming a Solid Developer in 2019
Solid, GitHub, 2019/02/11
Solid, you may recall, is the project by Tim Berners-Lee and company to create a distributed social web. This page makes it clear just how difficult and complex that task is. It's a 'roadmap' to becoming a Solid developer - that is, it identifies and links to the different things you need to know. The 'basics' include identity, DOM manipulation, APIs and more, not to mention graph data and RDF. You'll also need package managers like Yarn or (Node.js) NPM. Then you can move on to React, a Javascript framework for dynamic web interfaces. More...

IMS Report On Learning Technology Satisfaction and Trends

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. IMS Report On Learning Technology Satisfaction and Trends
I'd like to know why IMS is forcing people to register before allowing them to see this document? What are they doing with the data? Has IMS become the AdDoubleClick of the education world? Anyhow, Michael Feldstein provides us with an informed summary. Of note: "The amount of money spent on content and content authoring tools dwarfs everything else... it becomes crystal clear that making high-quality, free, re-usable content available (and findable) is absolutely imperative from an institutional cost perspective."

Music Downloads in Downward Trend

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Simon Avery[Edit][Delete]: Music Downloads in Downward Trend, Globe and Mail [Edit][Delete] December 12, 2006
As expected, the digital music market has been saturated as people finish replacing and rounding out their music collection with the new format. The music industry continues to wail and gnash its teeth, however, blaming declining sales on piracy rather than poor marketing, worse technology, and indifferent quality (I mean, a album by Paris Hilton? Come on now). The comments, though, tell a different story, as writer after writer rejects the music industry's plaints, and with it, the marketing disaster that is DRM. It's unlikely that the music industry will listen - but one wonders, will the editors of the Globe and Mail get the message, and change their perspective on this issue. More...
