Connectivism and Connective Knowledge Friday Chats
Thanks are due to Alan Levine, who has compiled the first four weeks worth the Friday discussions as an audiobook file and uploaded it to Internet Archive (here's how to listen to an audiobook on your iPod). Alan Levine, Internet Archive, October 8, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]

Managing Your Moodle Subscriptions
The course discussion continues in the Moodle forums, and it may seem like it's getting harder and harder to keep up. The secret is to manage your Moodle subscriptions so you're moving along with the course.

Here's how to do it. Go to the Moodle course outline page here. You'll see the introductions and first five weeks displayed. Click on the earlier weeks - week 1, say - and you'll see a list of topics. In the upper right, click "unsubscribe from this forum". That will stop the emails from the previous weeks.

Next, use the back button (twice) and go back to the course outline. Click on 'Week 5'. That's this week. And on the link in the upper right, click on 'Subscribe to this Forum". Now you'll get the week 5 messages in your email as they come in. And while you're there, you can read the Week 5 posts that you've missed.

Practical Methods and Techniques of Knowledge Representation in Particular Those Related to Concept Mapping and Mind Mapping. History, Underpinnings, Software, and Comparison Table
Besides keeping with the academic tradition of using an article abstract as its title, this paper (.pdf) may be of interest to CCK08 members as it explores the "educational graphic knowledge representation" (in fairness, that term alone could be subject to a great deal of debate). It covers a fairly broad range of topics, including both mind and concept mapping... Mauri Ahlberg, , October 7, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]
