Connectivism Spezify
Spezify is a tool I haven't seen before. Seems like a way to aggregate information in a more visual format that often exhibited by sites like pageflakes, netvibes, or igoogle. In this instance, the "spezify" is a connectivism summary, linking to various resources, images, videos, tweets, articles, and blog posts. , , September 30, 2009 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]

Week 3: Moodle discussion
The Moodle forum for week three is generating a variety of interesting conversations on themes such as ANT, openness and connectivism, and metaphors. Blog activity seems to be a bit softer than last year...but that may pick up as first round of assignments are completed. , , September 30, 2009 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]

Internet Community Text Analyzer
Here's an interesting tool I just came across that analyzes text and content in online forums. According to the site, ICTA is a "web-based system for content and social network analysis. The main goal is to provide researchers and other interested parties with an automated system for analyzing text-based communal interactions. ICTA uses a web-based platform that incorporates various text mining techniques and interactive visualizations to allow researchers to access and analyze text-based datasets remotely and share their preliminary results with their collaborators."

However, as I stated in this forum: "Networked learning - when we confine it to patterns of social interactions - fails to capture the learning itself...If this path of external network analysis is pursued, we end up with a model of learning/cognition that reflects, I think, a behaviourist view where we see only the surface and fail to dive into the substantial elements of the learning experience." , , September 30, 2009 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]

Going offline to reflect about the quality control thread Love that #CCK09 make me reconsider my standard views- thanks!

@luzpearson Perhaps writing about research (blogging, forums, summarizing, analyzing) is the practice? Not sure. #cck09

@ChristyATucker yes!Research is to write, read and talk to others about the topic (practice), and all that is studying #cck09

Half an Hour: Facts versus skills. Comments from Stephen Downes, linked to from CCK09

inspired by these massively open courses - #cck09 and #eci831 - but they over-rely on synchronous sessions and do not offer podcasts

Enjoyed George Siemen's presentation for #cck09 today - highlights for me were comments about army, govt, and views on lurking .
