European #MOOCs Scoreboard | #learning #open

European #MOOCs Scoreboard | #learning #open | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

The aim of this scoreboard is to highlight the huge potential that European institutions have in the world of MOOCs and to help visualize this potential by compiling the existing European-provided MOOCs available on different open websites.

How we created our MOOC database

 

When we first started preparing to launch Open Education Europa, we attempted to make contact with every higher education institution in Europe, asking to whether or not they offered any MOOCs or other open educational resources. Hundreds of institutions answered us, and with the information they provided we started populating our database. Then we went to the websites of the institutions who had not responded and searched for publicly available MOOCs, which we also added to the database. Finally, we cross-checked with other MOOC providers and aggregators such as iversity and OpenupEd.

 

Updating the scoreboard

 

On an ongoing basis, we monitor for new MOOCs by using Google alerts, RSS feeds, and manual searches. The institutions we have contact with update us when they have new courses. We also check the MOOC providers and aggregators every month to see what’s new. As soon as we find a new MOOC online, we add it to our database. That means that some MOOCs are counted in the scoreboard before the start date of the course.

 

By the way, if you happen to know about a secret stash of MOOCs that aren’t included in our database, please tip us off!

Pierre Levy's curator insight, April 12, 2013 11:23 AM

The story that I’m trying to tell here is about the values that underpin the word ‘open’. I know many of the people involved in open education/learning/educational resources as deeply principled people who are engaged in the idea of openness for reasons that are important to them. In examining these values i have found two strands: one openness that speaks of valuing the creator/teacher/artifact, and another sense of openness that speaks of the user/learner. Most of us, I would imagine, borrow from both sides. But this story is particularly about how the ideas of around ‘open source’ influence a pull towards valuing the creator over the user, and how that pull might affect the field of learning going forward

An online Magna Carta: Berners-Lee calls for bill of rights for web | #privacy #open

Exclusive: web's inventor warns neutrality under sustained attack from governments and corporations

Via Pierre Levy
luiy's insight:

Berners-Lee's Magna Carta plan is to be taken up as part of an initiative called "the web we want", which calls on people to generate a digital bill of rights in each country – a statement of principles he hopes will be supported by public institutions, government officials and corporations.

 

"Unless we have an open, neutral internet we can rely on without worrying about what's happening at the back door, we can't have open government, good democracy, good healthcare, connected communities and diversity of culture. It's not naive to think we can have that, but it is naive to think we can just sit back and get it."

Berners-Lee has been an outspoken critic of the American and British spy agencies' surveillance of citizens following the revelations by National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden. In the light of what has emerged, he said, people were looking for an overhaul of how the security services were managed.

#OpenInnovation et #IntelligenceCollective : des outils pour repenser modèles économiques, produits et services

#OpenInnovation et #IntelligenceCollective : des outils pour repenser modèles économiques, produits et services | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
Des termes barbares ? Simplement tendance ? Ou de vrais outils pour les organisations qu'elles soient privées ou publiques ? La pratique me fait dire que
luiy's insight:

L’Open Innovation est un terme adopté par Henry Chesbrough, professeur et directeur du Centre d‘Open Innovation au Haas Business School de l’Université de Californie. Auteur de plusieurs livres sur l’Open Innovation, il explique qu’instaurer un processus d’innovation interagissant avec ses parties prenantes est un impératif aujourd’hui dans un monde de plus en plus horizontal. Aujourd’hui, avec la connaissance qui est largement distribuée, les organisations ne peuvent plus se reposer sur leur seule R&D en interne. Elles doivent puiser dans des idées nées en dehors de leur organisation, comme elles doivent donner accès aux idées nées en interne.

 

Le terme Intelligence Collective englobe une diversité de méthodes permettant aux participants d’un groupe de contribuer à un objectif commun avec leurs capacités cognitives. Le postulat de départ de ces méthodes est que l’intelligence du groupe sera supérieure à la somme des intelligences individuelles isolées. C’est bien la rencontre d’une diversité de personnes dotées de leurs expériences, de leurs savoirs tacites et explicites qui nourrira une réflexion commune dans un cadre donné (Intelligents ensemble, en entreprise : l’apport des méthodes d’intelligence collective, de Shabnam Anvar).

Ces deux notions n’ont pas été très présentes dans les pratiques du 20e siècle…
