Metacademy: a package manager for knowledge

Metacademy: a package manager for knowledge
Roger Grosse, Machine Learning (Theory), February 18, 2014
OK, so the good news here is that some computer science professors (Roger Grosse and Colorado Reed) have determined that course design should reflect more the structure of the discipline rather than a linear model of subjects arranged in the order a professor deems best. More...

KaaS – a New Way of Sharing Knowledge and Experiences

KaaS – a New Way of Sharing Knowledge and Experiences
Kenneth OE Sundin, WIFL, January 10, 2014
I think there is merit to this suggestion, but the details could use a lot more description. For example, when we say 'knowledge as a service', what do we mean by 'knowledge'? Does a Wikipedia article count? A Google search? Wolfram Aplha. More...

A Revolution in Knowledge Sharing

A Revolution in Knowledge Sharing
This may be the most important article you read this year. The authors document the fundamental shift in the learning landscape taking place right now: the sharing of knowledge. And they nail it: what makes knowledge sharing inevitable and important is the nature of knowledge: "There is no simple, linear hierarchy and progression from data to information to knowledge. In reality there is a complex intermeshing, such as a continuous churning of insight, the meaning of which changes in different contexts and through conversations with different participants." Because of this, to work with knowledge, what you need are not some sort of linear "delivery systems" but rather "knowledge networks". The authors outline four major types: description, discovery and exchange of content; interaction with and tracking of content; applications systems interoperability; and infrastructure interoperability.

Developing a Knowledge Capture System Based on Sharable and Self Documenting Learning Objects

Developing a Knowledge Capture System Based on Sharable and Self Documenting Learning Objects
This interesting paper kicks off this week's IFETS discussion. The idea is to capture and make available for reuse the knowledge created by students diuring the course of a class. Those same students could also review previously created knowledge. More...

An Expeditionary Approach to E-Knowledge

An Expeditionary Approach to E-Knowledge
A forward looking presentation arguing that "software systems that enable e-learning, knowledge management, and performance support will merge their capabilities. The resulting e-knowledge capabilities will enable a fresh set of 'killer apps' involving the sharing of e-knowledge." I think that's true, and I think they're a lot closer than many people think. More...

Knowledge Management in Education: Defining the Landscape

Knowledge Management in Education: Defining the Landscape
Not what you think. This article describes the use of knowledge management approaches for educational administration. In one example, it proposes tracking disciplinary incidents according to student, class, race, time of day, and so on, in order to identify likely causes (in the example, a poorly trained teacher). More...

Policy reforms and concerns with national economic competitiveness; changed technologies; preparation of professionals for different kinds of knowledge-intensive work practices; more traditional knowledge objectives of universities in roles of enlightenment and discovery are all part of the current scene. More...
