Web 2.0, E-Learning 2.0 and Personal Learning Environments

Thumbstacks.com - Making and Sharing Presentations on the Web

This is pretty interesting - it is a bit like S5 combined with a Web 2.0-ish authoring tool. In essence, it allows you to create web-based slide shows. The authoring tool mostly doesn't work on my home system (Firefox 2.0 and Ubuntu Eft) - it just bogs down and eventually stops responding - but will work on most systems. More...

Thanks for taking note of Ian's post, Stephen! As you say, Zoho can be used for many of the things above - Zoho Planner for your to-dos, Zoho Show for your presentations, Zoho Writer for your documents and Zoho Sheet for your spreadsheets. More...

The Basics: Your Office on the Web

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. The Basics: Your Office on the Web
How to crank up your internet (not just tubes any more!). First, change your start page (oddly, 80 percent of internet users never do). Pick a content page like NetVibes and then fill it with content. Add some widgets and some feeds to RSS contents. Then cue in some personal organization tools, like Google Calendar and Orchestrate (a personal to-do list). Create an address book (don't use Plaxo, it spams your contacts). Connect to Flickr for your photos (and I would suggest Slideshare for your slides). And while you're at it, set up a display to view other people's photos - something nice every day. Get set up on Google spreadsheets and documents, so you've got some serious content capacity. More...

Web 3.0 and Learning

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Will Thalheimer[Edit][Delete]: Web 3.0 and Learning, Will at Work Learning [Edit][Delete] November 28, 2006
I have commented on what some are calling "Web 3.0" before, questioning the concept. Here's a case in point. From the post: "[The holy-grail of Web 3.0 developers] is to build a system that can give a reasonable and complete response to a simple question like: 'I'm looking for a warm place to vacation and I have a budget of $3,000. Oh, and I have an 11-year-old child.'" OK, now, think about that. Do we ask questions like that? Well - no. First of all, we tend to forget to add the qualifiers (such as the budget and the child) when we ask. But even more importantly, we don't want to include some of this information in the question. It's an old rule - never tell the sales person what you're willing to spend. But also - I don't want to limit what I'm looking for. I'll spend more than $3000 if the trip is worth it, and I'll find a sitter for the child if I have to. What this means, then, is that whatever we're looking at, it won't be set up like a search or a query. It has to be much more subtle, much more interpretive, much more dynamic, much more immersive. The Web 3.0 people are talking about is the old Web 1.0 - we deliver content, you listen. More...

The Webcast Academy

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Various authors[Edit][Delete]: The Webcast Academy, [Edit][Delete] November 23, 2006
Interesting. "The Academy is a hands on, collaborative training center for people interested in learning how to produce and host live, interactive webcasts. You can learn more about The Webcast Academy here." What's kind of weird is that instead of posting the learning material in some easily accessible format, they have regular meetings (called 'classes') that you have to attend at certain times. Don't know what that's about; it certainly isn't very user-friendly. And why oh why would they make the section headings out of Flash. More...

What Does Web 2.0 Look Like?

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Ian Delaney[Edit][Delete]: What Does Web 2.0 Look Like?, twopointouch [Edit][Delete] November 7, 2006
Another of those diagrams that tries to make the essentially messy clear. I don't know - to me this just looks like buzzwords in boxes. But not every diagram speaks to everyone, I guess. And I guess I'm just not sufficiently into Enterprise 2.0. A better read. More...

Riding the Waves of Web 2.0

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Mary Madden and Susannah Fox[Edit][Delete]: Riding the Waves of Web 2.0, Pew [Edit][Delete] October 6, 2006
Another report from Pew, thiks time looking at everyone's favorite, Web 2.0. I like how the authors almost immediately strips Tim O'Reilly of the credit for having coined the term ("coined by Dale Dougherty and popularized by O'Reilly Media and MediaLive International"). And I like the way the authors deal with the definition of Web 2.0: "That the term has enjoyed such a constant morphing of meaning and interpretation is, in many ways, the clearest sign of its usefulness. This is the nature of the conceptual beast in the digital age, and one of the most telling examples of what Web 2.0 applications do: They replace the authoritative heft of traditional institutions with the surging wisdom of crowds.

Teacher as Learner in Web 2.0

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Teacher as Learner in Web 2.0, heyjude [Edit][Delete] August 24, 2006
"You can add a bit on about Web 2.0 if you like, but do not make it the main thrust of your paper. You must demonstrate that you understand our philosophy." I guess we must be on to something if education doctoral programs are advising that students should not focus on Web 2.0. More...
