The Future of Online Learning: Ten Years On
This is a major paper I authored over the summer and released yesterday. It's quite long, so don't feel a need to read it for the course. That said, you may find value skimming the headings, to get a lay of the land, and perhaps reading sections of interest to you.

Corporate Learning Trends and Innovation 2008
As if there isn't enough to do this week, you could if you find the time peek in on this free and open online conference. The list of speakers over the five days is a veritable who's who of corporate e-learning (see the Events page for a list): David Weinberger, Dave Pollard, Nancy White, Marcia Conner and Allison Anderson, among many others.

One way to think about Connectivism in the institutional conference is to think about alternative ways to present it. Diego Leal summarizes the Educamp Colombia sessions he ran last year, in preparation for a second set he is running this year. Here is the overview and the summary of the Bogota session. And here, in Spanish, is the overview and summary of both the Bogota and Medellin sessions. For me, it was a privilege to take part, and I will be participating at a distance at the kick-off for the next set. Diego Leal, .Edu.Co.Blog, November 17, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]
Top 10 Web 2.0 Things You Can Do
People, when they think about working with new technologies, think about the big things - getting their entire institution to switch, for example. But in this video I focus on the little - and effective - things. Thanks to Helge Scherlund for making this video (see also this item, on the same page: "The Global Education Collaborative is an online community for teachers and students who are interested in joining global education projects").

Wide Open-- CCK08
Interesting discussion uniting many aspects of the concept of openness. "It's my thinking," writes Lani, "that we must work toward the common goal of not permitting these variables to become or remain barriers to open learning, because the opportunities that arise upon convergence" Lani, Possibilities Abound, November 17, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]
