If I Had More Time...

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Alan Levine[Edit][Delete]: If I Had More Time..., Cogdogblog [Edit][Delete]CogDogBlog [Edit][Delete] February 27, 2006
Alan Levine's timing today wasn't a whole lot worse than mine, and like me he has a nice audio recording to show for his efforts, a Podcasting, Schmodcasting demo at GateWay Community College. Oh, and his MP3 files are bigger than mine. Heh. More links and plans for the talk. More...

Rick Reis's Tomorrow's Professor Blog

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Joseph Hart[Edit][Delete]: Rick Reis's Tomorrow's Professor Blog, EduResources [Edit][Delete] February 27, 2006
Rick Reis's Tomorrow's Professor newsletter has been running for years now - it's very popular and often a great read, but the website was so badly (and so mysteriously) updated it was impossible to pass the contents along. But Reis has finally adopted today's technology and launched his newsletter as a blog. More...

From EduBlogs to the Collective Consciousness

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. From EduBlogs to the Collective Consciousness
I'm at the ASTE conference in Anchorage, Alaska, where I conducted an all day seminar yesterday (the "Director's Cut") and a keynote address this morning. For the seminar I created a Jot wiki. Here are the PowerPoint slides from the keynote. I also have audio from the seminar - Part One, Part Two, each about 18 megabytes. And audio from the keynote, about 9 megabytes.[Tags: Podcasting] [Comment]. More...

Odeo

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Various authors[Edit][Delete]: Odeo, February 28, 2006
I have mentioned Odeo before, as a place to create podcasts. Ruth Vilmi also writes, on ITForum, "Other useful and simple to use programs are Podomatic. This is very easy to use for online recording, and there are ways to improve the quality. Then there is BubbleShare where you can give a running commentary (photocast) of your picture shows! Some have free demos, and some remain free for the moment. More...

Does eLearning 2.0 Make a Difference?

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Tony Karrer[Edit][Delete]: Does eLearning 2.0 Make a Difference?, eLearning Technology [Edit][Delete] February 28, 2006
It's interesting to note that the people at the Brandon Hall discussion area have picked up on the e-learning 2.0 theme. Some good discussion summary in this article, highlighting, for example, the emplasis in 2.0 on ease of creation, seamless integration (or better: connection), fine-grained tools, dynamic composition and content, and software as services. Now of course the whole idea of 2.0 is beginning to morph as vendors take interest. More...

Urban Screens: Discovering the Potential of Outdoor Screens for Urban Society

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Pieter Boeder and Mirjam Struppek[Edit][Delete]: Urban Screens: Discovering the Potential of Outdoor Screens for Urban Society, First Monday [Edit][Delete] February 9, 2006
I remember Derrick de Kerckhove talking about urban screens - "interactive, dynamic digital information displays in urban environments" - a few years ago at a conference in Edmonton. It was one of those gee-whiz presedntations full of hope but with no discernable impact. But I'm not surprised to see the concept emerge again; it's too alluring to let go. But I think urban screens should be more personal. I have proposed repeatedly that we try something like that at NRC - ambient wall-screens connecting offices between cities (after all, we're on CA*Net 4, so we have the bandwidth). Because the idea is to connect people, not cities (and certainly not propaganda). More...

Downes on OER Sustainability

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Stephen Carson[Edit][Delete]: Downes on OER Sustainability, OpenFiction [Edit][Delete] February 9, 2006
Some commentary and correction regarding my observations about MIT's OpenCourseWare contained in my recent paper on sustainable open educational resources. Some good observations, too: "no project can really sustain the costs of producing 'reusable' materials, even assuming they could determine what that meant. More...

Risky Business: Teachers and Pedagogical Change

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Christopher D. Sessums[Edit][Delete]: Risky Business: Teachers and Pedagogical Change, Christopher D. Sessums :: Weblog [Edit][Delete] February 9, 2006
When I read about resistance to technological change, I frequently see it couched in terms of fear, as in this article. I think that's a myth - the image of people, including teachers, cowering from growth and development because they're afraid of change doesn't sit well with me, and doesn't reflect the experiences I've had talking with them. More...
