Week 3 - NRC01PL

Welcome to Week 3 of Personal Learning.

This week we will look at the shift from the learning management system to the MOOC, and in particilar, examine the motivations behind the Connectivist courses and the gRSShopper system we designed to deliver them.

On cue, it seems, our OpenEdX website became unavailable today when our DNS server was changed without an update to the domain record for lpss.me - it should be back soon, but DNS changes can take as much as 24 hours to propagate, so it may be sooner or later for you.

Luckily, we're working already on a distributed model, so this newsltter still works, as do Twitter, YouTube and Diigo, so there's still plenty to do.

Tomorrow (Tuesday) I fly back from Turkey, so there will not be a hangout (and the newsletter will be quite late). The live discussion this week will be on Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. Eastern

The Future of Educational Media
2016/03/07

At the end of last week I wrong a piece on the 2016 look at the future of online learning. This was followed on Saturday with a keynote here in Istanbul on the future of learning media. The webcast failed, but I did capture slides and audio, which I share here. [Direct Link]


Informal Discussion on the Future of Educational Media

In the afternoon here in Istanbul I led an informal discussion on the topics covered in the keynote. We looked especially at the distinction between 'personal' learning and 'personalized' learning, as well as different approaches to gamification. This time the webcast was successful, so I share the full recording. [Direct Link]
