Doug Engelbart: The Demo - 0 views

  •  
    This is the orignal 1968 Englebart demonstration of technology innovations. A black and white video capturing the work at Stanford Research Institute and Douglas Englebart. He works to show, rather than tell what being an computer powered intellectural worker. This is the demo Called: The mother of all demos, credited with launching so much of what we live with today in a wired world. He's showing his audience break through ideas like typing text on a screen, copying text, making lists, quickly revising ideas, saving a file, being able to recall notes, jumping from text to text... how it starts with a blank screen. To our modern eyes, this seems so very basic. It's easy to forget that in 1968 computers were mainframe monsters available only to rich corporations, universities, and the government. Here we see the origins of the personal computer and better understand the transformation impact of ideas. After demonstrating what would become 'word processing', Englebar begins to draw on the screen and relate this drawing of his route home from the office to his shopping list. The impact of this demo changed the world. Viewing it now reminds us of just how far we've come with the tools of thinking. The question is what do we do with the technology? This was the question asked at the Sloan-C symposium in San Francisco this month. (June 2009). Englelbart feels his life's work was dedicated to creating the potential for global problem solving. He challenged a room full of university professors who are the early adopters of e-learning to use the tools and technology we now have to solve the problems, wondering aloud why more hadn't already been done. As academics live in the silos of their disciplines, some reach out beyond the traditional barriers to share, think, research, and learn together. Others sit on committees endlessly define and describing what was, rather that what will be.

    This is the original 1968 Englebart teleconference demonstration of technology innovations. A black and white video capturing the work at Stanford Research Institute and Douglas Englebart. He works to show, rather than tell what being an computer powered intellectual worker. This is the demo Called: The mother of all demos, credited with launching so much of what we live with today in a wired world. He's showing his audience break through ideas like typing text on a screen, copying text, making lists, quickly revising ideas, saving a file, being able to recall notes, jumping from text to text... how it starts with a blank screen. The name of his workspace says so much: Human Intellect Research Center at SRI... as I watch this man demo jumping from link to link on the page, I see the birth of hypertext. I'm on YouTube watching and listening as his ideas unfold and I recall his brief speech on stage (at age 84) recalling the moment when he recognized the enormous power of being able to link ideas in what would some day become known in cyberspace. For that moment, as he traced the movement of ideas in the air with his hands you could see the young man's mind and passion renewed. To our modern eyes, this work will seem a bit nerdy and very basic. His 1968 focus is on a basic process: compose, study modify. His point being that simply linear thinking is inadequate to the task when building complex systems. It's easy to forget that in 1968 computers were mainframe monsters available only to rich corporations, universities, and the government. Here we see the origins of the personal computer and better understand the transformation impact of ideas. After demonstrating what would become 'word processing', Englebar begins to draw on the screen and relate this drawing of his route home from the office to his shopping list. We cut to a feed from Menlo Park that demonstrates the Mouse. Englebart explains the technology that has changed very little sin

    I use gmail as my main email application. I'm hooked on the ability to keyword search ALL of my email. I've set up all of my key email addresses to forward to my email account. With filters and labels I can organize things. I've found the UW-Stout Outlook mail system to be a real pain in the neck. It doesn't have many features and it is cumbersome to use. So I've used the settings on this page to set up auto-forwarding from my Stout Account to my Gmail account. This really helps when I need to search out information. It's a techie thing to set up, but it's a time saver as well. Thought I'd share this with the group. (I know many of you aren't checking your UW Accounts often enough! 8-))

What Steve Jobs Can Teach You About Designing E-Learning » The Rapid eLearning Blog - 0 views

  • Reynolds argues that the Jobs presentation is more effective.  I agree, and think Jobs’ slides are better because they are: visually interesting less cluttered formatted with smaller chunks of information Considering what we discussed earlier about cognitive loads, you can already see how this approach is effective for elearning.  The learner is better able to understand and process the information, making it more memorable. Compared to many other presentations, the Gates version is not bad.  We don’t want to be critical of the slides.  However, comparing the two presentations, it’s easy to see how a simplified screen with very specific points is more visually appealing and easier for the learner to digest.
    • Greg Sack
       
      I have taught simplicity and clarity as important positives in web page design. This makes good points for online course structuring.
  • Here’s a quick demo where I take the same narration and present it four different ways.  What you’ll notice is that to lessen the cognitive load you can: progressively reveal information condense the text on the screen replace text with relevant images Click here to see the demo. Both the Jobs and Gates slides are primarily information-based and not very interactive.  While that’s the case, it doesn’t mean that the course can’t be effective.  The combination of nice visual design with text and narration that eases cognitive load makes your course much more memorable and effective.

      I love this video. It gives a very concrete way of lessening cognitive load. I am still trying to figure out its practical implications for online course design, though.

Engelbart Mural - 0 views

  •  
    The Co-Evolution of Human Systems and Tool Systems. Here's the Englebart Mural created by acolytes of Englebart who have developed a massive wall mural depicting the thinking and historical impact of Englebart's work at SRI. Included is a graphic/noted display of Englebart's 1968 "Mother of All Demos" presenting break-through technology prototypes that are the foundation for the information age. Heady stuff, presented with old world technology (a mural). This links to the actual image you can scroll through, download, examine in some depth. I have to believe that someone out there has developed an interactive version of this work.

    Free online suite of high power media tools. They 'look great'. Haven't had a moment to try them out. Quite sophisticated, they may be more than you need. I did view the demo for their Audio Editor and it's slick. You could create simple podcasts with it no problem, but you'd be using just a smidgen of the toolset available.

  • #6: Hate photocopying and assembling bulky, wasteful handouts? Save time and money. Just tag the pages, including highlights and notes, you want to include, then quickly Extract all the information under that tag. Give students CDs containing copies of the HTML file which has links to all the original pages and includes highlighted passages and your notes, or print copies as you need them. Watch this demo to see how it's done.
  • #11: Whether you write a blog for colleagues or to keep your students infromed, Diigo offers several useful features. You can blog directly from the Diigo toolbar, with a link to the page you're writing about as well as your highlights and notes already added to the post. Diigo will also send a linkroll of resources you've saved directly to your blog with no extra effort on your part.
