The Three C's of Social Networking: Consumption, Curation, Creation | Social Media Toda... - 0 views

    Over the years, social networks have lured us from the confines of our existing realities into a new genre of digital domains that not only captivated us, but fostered the creation of new realities. As George Bernard Shaw observed, "Life is not about finding yourself, life is about creating yourself." Such is true for social networks and the digital persona and resulting experiences we create and cultivate. It was the beginning of the shift in behavior toward an era of digital extroversion, self-defined by varying degrees of sharing, connections, and engagement.

The Evolving LMS Market, Part I | e-Literate - 0 views

    "As Casey Green said in my recent interview with him, the LMS space is a "market in transition." In 2005, the year that Blackboard acquired WebCT, the two platforms had a combined total of 75.6% U.S. higher education market share, and the next closest competitor had barely cracked 2% market share. Today, the situation is substantially different and changing rapidly. But the narratives around exactly what's happening tend to be off. Typically, I hear the frame as being a contest between Blackboard and "open source." Has "open source" (by which we mean Moodle and Sakai, the two open source LMSs with significant market share in the United States) made inroads into the market? If you read what the majority of sell-side financial analysts1 are writing, you may see the claim that "open source" is not putting a major dent in Blackboard. If you talk to Moodle or Sakai advocates, you might hear that they are crushing the company in sales. Neither account is really capturing what's happening in the market, so I'm going to try to explain what we know about what's really going on in a two-part series. In this post, I'll talk about what the data are telling us so far about the recent shifts in the market, describe how colleges and universities come to decide that they need to go to market for an LMS, and assess the degree to which we may see an uptick in the number of schools that decide to look around and evaluate our options. In the second post, I'll describe how the next four years of market transition may be different than the previous four and what signs we should be watching for to see which way the market is going to break."

TALL blog » Blog Archive » Who is using Open Educational Resources? - 0 views

    "Who is using Open Educational Resources?

    This post marks the official open-on-the-web style start to our JISC funded OER Impact study. The key tasks of the study being:

    * The investigation of patterns of behaviour around the use and reuse of OER.
    * Examining the impact of these behaviours on teaching and learning strategies from institutional, tutor and student perspectives.

    Our methodology is distinctly qualitative, focusing on the 'why' and much as the 'what'. Why you might be using OER rather than why they should exist.

Personal Learning Environments - 1 views

    "A PLE (personal learning environment) is:

    a system that helps learners take control of and manage their own learning. This includes providing support for learners to set their own learning goals, manage their learning, manage both content and process, and communicate with others in the process of learning.

    In contrast, a virtual learning environment (VLE) or learning management system (LMS), such as Blackboard or Moodle, is:

    a software system designed to help teachers by facilitating the management of educational courses for their students, especially by helping teachers and learners with course administration. The system can often track the learners' progress, which can be monitored by both teachers and learners.

    Notice the difference? A VLE/LMS is all about controlling how you learn. A PLE is about giving you control over how you learn."

#PLENK2010 Research into the Design and Delivery of MOOC | Suifaijohnmak's Weblog - 1 views

    "My suggested assumptions in MOOC include:

    * people would learn in a self-directed manner
    * Knowledge is distributed
    * Knowledge is negotiated
    * Knowledge is emergent
    * Knowledge is rhizomatic (thanks to Dave's video posted - refer to How to be successful in MOOC?)
    * Learning is capacity to construct, navigate and traverse across networks
    * personal learning networks would be a far better way for people to learn
    * people like to learn via social networks
    * people know how to connect (people have the communication, literacy and critical literacy skills)
    * people know how to use the technology to connect
    * people are self motivated (intrinsic motivation)
    * people like to accept challenges, chaos and complexity is just part of the learning process
    * people don't need to follow a course or qualification for learning to be effective
    * Learning is emergent, and is based on connections, engagement and interactions
    * Learning is open
    * Identity in networked learning is based on individual's "participation, interaction" in the networks, and is reflective of ones involvement in the media, it's dynamic, adaptive
    * Individual and social learning is emphasised - cooperation
    * Sensemaking and wayfinding are important"

Twitter as a Personal Learning Network (PLN) | What's New in the World? - 0 views

    "Personal Learning Networks are all the rage at the moment. As with a lot of "modern" things, they're existed for a long time but have now got a snappy new name. It used to be called "advice from friends and colleagues". But in the era of social media the word friend has taken on a new meaning. Social media has provided me with a lot of friends who I've never met and never spoken to. I've exchanged a few tweets with them, commented on or received comments on a blog article, or maybe read a few forum posts, and as a result these people are, in Web 2.0-speak, friends."

Performance.Learning.Productivity Blog: 21st Century L&D Skills - 1 views

    "If we're to believe the experts rather than the man-in the-street, the 21stCentury started on 1st January 2001 rather than on 1st January 2000. Subsequently, we're now in the second half of the last year of the first decade of the millennium. That being the case, it's probably worthwhile reflecting on the changes that have impacted our training/learning departments over the past 10 years. It's also worthwhile thinking forward to the world we're likely to be facing over the next 10 and considering what an ideal learning and development team might look like if it is to effectively navigate the future."
