Moving From Theory to Practice in the Design of Web-Based Learning Using a Learning Object Approach

Moving From Theory to Practice in the Design of Web-Based Learning Using a Learning Object Approach
This paper is mostly useful as an overview of the major concepts of learning objects as they may be applied in a practical setting. However, there are some serious weaknesses. First, it seems to me that the module, at twelve hours, is of excessive length. Second, the author does not include any examples of reuse, instead only describing what modifications would be necessary for reuse. More...

Welcome to ...ReferralWeb

Welcome to ...ReferralWeb
Nothing new under the sun. This is an interesting system, though I am didappointed not to have found my name among the 'trusted experts' that can be found. The idea is that the "system lets you search and explore social networks - the networks of friends, colleagues, and co-workers - that exist on the WWW. It lets you find trusted information from trusted experts, who are likely to help because they are friends of your friends!" There's a lot that's good about this system. More...

What Newspapers and Their Web Sites Must Do to Survive

What Newspapers and Their Web Sites Must Do to Survive
If you produce content of any type, you need to read Vin Crosbie's (long awaited) advice to the newspaper industry: "For its survival, the newspaper industry must produce and automatically deliver, wired and wirelessly, entirely intact and individually customized editions that are smaller, vertically formatted, and that combine the graphical layout capabilities of print and the interactive multimedia capabilities of the Web, and flow to fit any display screen or printed paper size." There's a lot more in this article, but the essence is clear: personalize or die. More...

Because the website is so infrequently updated (the last post appears to be from 2002), I rarely link to items from Rick Reis's quality "Tomorrow's Professor" email newsletter. More...

Homework Causes Family Arguments

Homework Causes Family Arguments
A debate is raging on the BBC website about the role of homework. As Mark Nelson wrote to me this morning, the more interesting content is in the comments. And he asks, does e-learning have a role here? Yes - but exactly the same comments that are made of e-learning could be said of homework. It's a question of accessibility. More...

Very Black 'Little Black Books'

Very Black 'Little Black Books'
The intent of this short article is to sound a cautionary note about social networking services, and the author presses all the hot buttons: "Anyone can be subjected to the interest of a stalker" and "people everywhere are under the twin clouds of terrorism and dangerously powerful and unregulated national security and law enforcement agencies." And, in looking specifically at Plaxo, which advises stupid people to upload their entire address book, the worst case scenario is described. More...

Compliqué de réformer le web

http://blog.educpros.fr/gilbert-azoulay/wp-content/themes/longbeach_gilbert/images/img01.jpgBlog Educpros de Gilbert Azoulay. A l’heure où le Parlement européen a voté la proposition sur la directive sur la réforme du droit d’auteur soumise par Bruxelles, en vue des négociations à venir pour conclure un accord final avec les États membres de l’Union, nous ne pouvons que nous réjouir de cette initiative qui vise à protéger les auteurs ou éditeurs de presse pillés ou plutôt rackettés par les géants du web. Ne nous y trompons pas : sans réactions de ce genre de la parte de l’Europe, seule organisation à pouvoir agir, nous aurions laissé un monstre à plusieurs têtes grandir. Je ne sais pas si nous pouvons encore nous réjouir tant le pouvoir des GAFAN est grand, mais l’idée de dire NON à un moment rassure … ou au moins fait du bien. Plus...
