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?

Networks of Experts – An Oxymoron

Elsua

I am not sure what you would think about this, after you watch Euan’s video, but over the course of the years, and way before getting immersed in the social computing world, I have always had a thing for the word and concept of experts. Yet, experts is quite the opposite.

Design Considerations For Enterprise Social Networks

Collaborative Thinking

While enterprise social networking has been covered extensively in the media and by IT analyst firms, one of the least discussed aspects of the topic has been the issue of design and the potential impact of design on employee adoption of such tools and applications.

Re-Thinking Follow Models Within The Enterprise

Collaborative Thinking

Past incarnations however were perhaps so subtle and housed within a particular use case scenario or application context, that we never really thought about how the model could be leveraged in a very broad and compelling manner. Social network sites ( defined by boyd and Ellison for consumer sites in 2007 and extended by myself (while at Burton Group) to apply to enterprise sites in 2008 ), were instrumental in making follow models more prominent.

Poor Mental Models fail teams before they even start?

The Bumble Bee

One of the most powerful team exercises is to explore team leaders and team members "mental models" of teams, networks and groups. Mental models are the, often invisible, dictators of what actually happens in a team as opposed to what team leaders would like to happen.

KM World and Enterprise Search Summit 2010 Notes: Designing Social Search in the Enterprise

I am attending the course not only for the content on Critical Literacies, but also because I am interested in how open courses are designed and run. What is so intriguing is that the design of an open course cannot predict what participants will run with, what will grab their interest, what discussions will ensue, who will participate etc. The discussion in Moodle about the evolving definition of ’expert’ generated quite a bit of interest.

Often, I work with subject matter experts (SMEs) – people brought in especially because of their skills and knowledge around a particular topic. It’s seductive to let them share all that they know, to be the ‘sage on the stage’, after all, they are the ‘expert’ Problem is, this is a very weak form of learning. Use models wisely.
