Open education, open research, and co-authoring our knowledge base: Here comes everybody

Open education, open research, and co-authoring our knowledge base: Here comes everybody | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

"I should just come out and say it from the beginning. A paper about open education that is authored by a single person feels (not necessarily is) a little anachronistic to me. That is, the spirit of open education is collaborative, constructivist, connectivist (whichever approach or nomenclature) you prefer. It all depends on openness and connectivity and indeed that is where it draws its very strength. The rapid assembly and disassembly of affinity groups based on need, want, topic, what have you. This rapid assembly is made possible through openness and in turn promotes collaboration and some significant knowledge production. To then craft research and disseminate that research solely through the prism of one individual just feels a little out of that spirit of that openness." from the source: Michael Sean Gallagher http://michaelseangallagher.org/

NOTE: This article is a good synopsis of the process and outcomes of Michael's participation in a MOOC. He has done a very good job of demonstrating and validating the positive aspects of distance collaboration as well as MOOC infrastructure for open research and education.

DATA POINTS: FMCG marketers in China can no longer just ride a category wave

DATA POINTS: FMCG marketers in China can no longer just ride a category wave | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it
Three key trends affecting China’s FMCG market have emerged from the third wave of Bain & Company and Kantar Worldpanel's study on the shopping behaviour of 40,000 Chinese households: Continuing deceleration across sectors and all city tiers, fewer store visits to offline retailers as online commerce booms, and foreign brands’ loss of aggregate share to Chinese brands. The research used an unconventional approach that assigned research participants with barcode scanners to determine what they actually purchased, as opposed to what they said they had purchased. Detailed analysis of 26 categories spanning the four largest consumer-goods sectors: Personal care, home care, beverage and packaged food, which account for more than 80 per cent of China’s FMCG market in value is presented.
