OLDSMOOC Design

Jenny Connected

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?

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. Instead, the information was presented at a holistic and inter-disciplinary level, covering a collection of related issues: Affordance-centered design.

Describing open learning environments and emergent learning

Jenny Connected

How can we have confidence in the footprints, when the footprint ( a graphic description of a learning experience), if individually drawn, depicts an interpretation of the learning experience based on subjective personal reflection on that experience, and the scoring factors themselves can be open to personal interpretation? This ongoing work in seeking to describe and clarify what we mean by emergent and prescribed learning is progressing on our open wiki ‘ Footprints of Emergence ’.

Using Open Space in traditional conference design

Chris Corrigan

I have used Open Space in almost every way conceivable and what Lisa Heft wrote on the OSLIST today about using it with traditional conferences strikes home. This is good wisdom, friends: My experience is that – if doing a mix of ‘traditional’ format conference and Open Space – the most ideal situation is traditional, (recreation day before or after that or after the whole conference) and then Open Space.

Polarities to help design harvesting

Chris Corrigan

In almost every meeting, having a flip chart where we record ideas, or a table top sheet in a world cafe, or a book of proceedings in Open Space, means that the group has generated information that it can use to work with inside of the process. We also need to harvest things for afterwards, including reports for bosses or communities, decisions to implement, designs to create, prototypes to run.

Copyright on the hugely useful content – designed specifically for “hard to reach&# groups – lies with BIG , so it isn’t up to the rest of us to gather it up and re-use it if the site closes.
