Course-Management Companies Challenge MOOC Providers

Course-Management Companies Challenge MOOC Providers | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

"Two software companies that sell course-management systems, Blackboard and Instructure, have entered the race to provide free online courses for the masses. On Thursday both companies plan to announce partnerships with universities that will use their software to teach massive open online courses, or MOOC’s. The companies hope to pull in their own college clients to compete with online-education players like Udacity and Coursera."

"...Because learning isn’t putting content in little boxes to be handed to kids one after another only to have the boxes thrown away quickly after the handling. To be forgotten in an effort to remember the next in the long line to which they can’t see the end.

 

It’s letting the kids discover what’s in the boxes. And how to get it out of the boxes. And why the boxes even matter in the first place.

 

It’s setting a goal, establishing an environment to realize the goal, and trusting in the capacity of human potential. Student potential.

And sometimes, it’s just getting out of their way...."

Wikipedia and Network Effects

Wikipedia and Network Effects | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Encouragement that the Wikipedia model—a model that relies on the collective wisdom of a large number of unpaid volunteers—could be viable was provided by the NASA ClickWorkers experiment, which ran from November 2000 to September 2001. In the experiment by NASA, unpaid volunteers visited NASA’s website to mark and classify craters and “honeycomb” terrain on Mars. (4) The study produced two surprising and interesting results. First, people are willing to engage in an unpaid, novel, and productive experience merely for the fun of it. Second, an amalgamation of data contributed by many unskilled volunteers can be virtually indistinguishable from the output of a trained worker. Thus, large groups of people are capable of producing high-quality work for free.

Does Evolution Favor Competition or Cooperation? Ask an Anarchist Jailbird Prince.

Does Evolution Favor Competition or Cooperation? Ask an Anarchist Jailbird Prince. | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

"Darwin’s publication of On the Origin of Species sparked major battles. The most famous may have been between science and religion, but there were disputes within science as well. One of the most heated was whether natural selection favored cooperative or competitive behaviors, a battle that still rages today. For almost 100 years, no single person did more to promote the study of the evolution of cooperation than Peter Kropotkin.
Kropotkin traveled the world talking about the evolution of cooperation, which he called “mutual aid,” in both animals and humans."

"When it comes to trust, not all relationships are at the same level. Based on the context of the given relationship – professional, personal, family, social – each one can experience a different level of trust.

 

There are three basic levels of trust...."

 

First level - deterence-based trust

Second level - knowledge-based trust

Third level - identity-based trust

Networked: The New Social Operating System

Networked: The New Social Operating System | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Daily life is connected life, its rhythms driven by email, text messages, tweets and Facebook updates. Some worry that this new environment makes us isolated and lonely. But in Networked, Lee Rainie and Barry Wellman show how the large, loosely knit social circles of networked individuals expand opportunities for learning, problem solving, decision making and personal interaction. The new social operating system of “networked individualism” liberates us from the restrictions of tightly knit groups; it also requires us to develop networking skills and strategies, work on maintaining ties, and balance multiple overlapping networks.

What Is Web 3.0, Really, and What Does It Mean for Education?

What Is Web 3.0, Really, and What Does It Mean for Education? | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

The web is in the midst of an ­evolutionary cycle that's likely to spark profound changes in ­education.
There are common threads in their ­predictions: widely available videos as educational tools, the blending of the physical and digital worlds, and a web that's capable of applying context to its processes. Many of these advancements aren't new, but they're becoming increasingly ubiquitous and far-reaching, transforming existing processes and offering new insights into everything from health to marketing to learning.

“My hypothesis today is that innovation is a social process. It is a process in which place, people, and social networks are essential…

Everybody starts from the same place with respect to innovation. We know that innovation drives productivity growth, and, as a result, we focus our attention on the world of commercial enterprise. We do not think much about innovation in other sectors of the economy – the non-profit sector, the social sector, or, heaven forbid, the public sector. And yet each one of these sectors consumes resources and produces outputs. And every one of them is being reshaped by technology and by knowledge-based activity.”

Connecting Social Learning to e-Learning

Connecting Social Learning to e-Learning | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Social constructionism involves the need for collaboration. People learn by expressing something for others to see, understanding the context of others, and observing their peers. Traditional e-learning courses do not facilitate social interaction with other learners. We can now fill this void by connecting learners on social media or social learning platforms to discuss application of the e-learning course content. Using these platforms, learners can communicate with each other instantly, and reach a broad audience. We can design our e-learning to use social media as part of our activities, interactions, and research. By embracing social media as a tool for e-learning collaborative efforts, we can continue to improve the learning experience of online learners.
