OLDSMOOC Design

The next stage is for people to team up and work on design projects together, which might be difficult for those who have entered the MOOC as individuals rather than as a team, or alongside colleagues. Does this MOOC need the amount of prescription that is a significant part of its design? the basic MOOC is ok for CPD, but still needs some good learning design. What is the difference between learning design and planning for learning?

Evaluating and reflecting on OldGlobeMOOC

Jenny Connected

This might be due to the fact that this was my first Coursera MOOC and my reflections are influenced by past experience with many connectivist MOOCs, which I have participated in, researched and in one case helped to design and run. The design of the MOOC and structure of the syllabus.

We design a faceted taxonomy and metadata framework to meet user and organisational sharing needs, we build information architecture specifications, and hand them over to the systems integrator (SI), who immediately trims them back to what they are familiar with – single hierarchy document library/ folder structures – especially frustrating when we know that the systems they use are capable of exploiting our designs.

Much discussion about networking local government – now how about the rest of civil society?

Social Reporter

Steve is the original designer of the Knowledge Hub, and as he explains here and here that sort of integration was envisaged in the Hub before elements were cut by LGA. Last time I wrote: Meanwhile I have been exploring alternatives to the knowledge hub model in recent posts, prompted by ideas for a sort of civic Facebook or similar system developed by the new Lobbi initiative.

The Evolution of Cooperation

Jenny Connected

In the forum topic thread designated for this mission, no later than Monday, Feb 4 Pacific time, post a question that you’d like to see addressed by everybody in regard to the biological and/or cultural evolution of cooperation. Can biological models from other species be scientifically applied to human subjects, or are they metaphors for how we might understand human behaviour? What can we learn from the earliest models of cooperation in evolutionary process?

Re-visiting the challenge of networking civil society as Khub closes

Social Reporter

Dave Briggs has launched a rescue bid , and I’m sure Dave has the skills and helpers to develop a lighter version if he can persuade the LGA (and users) to collaborate in a handover, and can develop a new business model. The emphasis on open access and sharing changes where value may reside: so what are the new business models? That would be a good demonstration of migration from old to a new organisation-based model.

As the Knowledge Hub faces closure, might a creative Twitter mob help with re-invention?

Social Reporter

The more innovative councils aim to co-design or even co-produce services with citizen and other organisations to share knowledge, a sense of ownership, and maybe contributions in kind. Yesterday I attended a meeting** of people formerly involved, like me, in the advisory group set up a few years back when the Hub was being designed as a successor to the successful Communities of Practice platform. Knowledge Hub: a response – by Hub designer Steve Dale on how designs changed.

Creating a whole kit (and caboodle) for community enablers and agents of change

Social Reporter

I should offer congratulations to NatCAN for keeping going, but generally I don’t think the conversation/knowledge hub model works too … about which more later. I suggest instead taking one of the strongest lessons from community enabling and applying it to a process of developing the kit and caboodle: stuff works best if people have a hand in designing and developing, because it is then what’s needed, and they own it. The many models for People Powered Change.
