Literate analysis, literate modeling

Making Sense With Facilitated Systems

Recently, I've begun using R2wd and may also use Sweave as the application of literate programming ideas to data analysis. In my experience so far, that approach does help organize the analysis process, and it does seem to justify the "reproducible research" moniker. Between the two programs, they can turn a reproducible analysis into your favorite publication format: PDF, ODT, HTML, or DOC(X). What have you learned?

Information abundance and learning

Erik Duval’s topic for Change MOOC this week was Learning in a Time of Abundance , which he equates to changes in connectedness (we can be more connected to people and information than ever before), openness and transparency (access and resources) and ‘always on’ (e.g. Abundance will not go away (at least not in the foreseeable future) and has implications for what we learn and how we learn.

This week Jutta Pauschenwein and I presented a paper Visualising Structure and Agency in a MOOC using the Footprints of Emergence Framework at the 10th Networked Learning Conference in Lancaster, UK. For our work ‘structure’ means how a learning design balances openness and structure and how this balance is implemented in relation to the interactivity it enables. Like him, we believe that a holistic view is needed to understand the learning experience in MOOCs.
