Wednesday Elluminate Sessions

eLearning and ISD's Roles. Things Change.
Mark Friedman takes this week's topic to LinkedIn and poses it as a question for his network: "How will eLearning change in the near future, as development tools increase the ability of people to create their own courseware, gaming and training - without the inclusion of a trained Instruction Systems Designer (ISD)? Is there really a loss here?" There's a number of responses from people who may or may not be in the course. Mark Friedman, Mark's Weblog, November 5, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]

Negative Online Behavior Is a Product of Culture, Not Your Social Media Tools: What I'm Learning From the Work Literacy Course
CCK08, like other open courses, faces a concern about how to manage comments when traditional control systems are dissolved. But the concern rests not with the technology that permits openness, but with people and culture: "One of the questions I'm most frequently asked when talking to people about using social media for learning in organizations is how do you "manage" comments and how do you deal with people "being negative." There's a general fear that once you open the floodgates to participation, you're going to be inundated with people acting inappropriately and unprofessionally."

History of Education Theories
The concept map displayed here is one person's view of educational theory - tracing steps from practical to religious to psychological and technological. Brief mention is also made of authority, chaos, and freedom. Dolors Capdet, , November 4, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]

Online Communities Mini-Conferences
Nancy White, passing this along from "Leigh Blackall... This is a terrific set of "mini-events" around a variety of online community and collaboration topics. NOT TO BE MISSED!" Note especially the session hosted by Valerie Taylor, "As Community Leadership Development is a new course modeled on FOC08 and CCK08, participants in the FOC08 Mini Conferences are uniquely qualified to provide input, feedback and suggestions." Nancy White, Full Circle Associates, November 4, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]
