"In the 1990′s I worked for Hughes Aircraft of Canada developing large scale air traffic control systems for international customers around the world. Air traffic control systems are large, complex, mission critical systems. After extensive requirements gathering and analysis an overall architecture for the air traffic control system was defined including complete hardware and software requirements. Development of something so large required the overall architecture to be broken down into subsystem components which were then distributed to different teams for development. The lead systems engineering team had the responsibility of integrating developed subsystems into the final air traffic control system and ensuring that the overall architecture design and requirements were met."

The Key Value of Content Curation: Enhancing Who We Are


Via Robin Good
more...
Robin Good's curator insight, May 15, 7:57 AM



"When we curate content online, it enhances who we are, both in the sense of... - we learn things, and we help to define ourselves by understanding our own interests - and in a more external way, by allowing other people to better understand who we are.


It becomes part of our ethos, part of our personal brand."


Dr. Gideon Burton of Brigham Young University offers an interesting insight into why curation is such a valuable activity for humankind by pointing out that our efforts to gather, collect and order the information chaos surrounding us, is a critical activity to understand ourselves, to learn more about anything, to make sense of the world we live in.


Even at the lowest, most amateurish level of social sharing or bookmarking, our best efforts to collect and order information, even when they are imperfect, incomplete or even inaccurate, do have great value.


The value is in the opportunity we create for others to discover, to get a better hint or a better understanding, of what we have collected and sorted. And even when collecting is a personal act of self-expression or a reflection of a pet interest, still, there is value, as "people are a very important way by which we can order our understanding of the world".


Content curation enhances who we are because it helps us Understand and Navigate the world we live in through someone else eyes and experience.



Inspiring. Truthful. Great perspective from which to look and appreciate the full value of curation.


Highly recommended. 10/10

I Failed My Online Course—But Learned A Lot About Internet Education

I Failed My Online Course—But Learned A Lot About Internet Education | OER and e-learning | Scoop.it

By Selena Larson, 3/8/14

 

MOOCs, or massive open online courses, are quickly becoming technology darlings. Companies like Coursera, Udacity, edX and others provide college-caliber online courses taught by professors from the most prestigious universities. Millions of students interested in pursuing inexpensive post-secondary education can take classes on anything from nutritional health to machine learning—right from the comfort of their own home.

It’s not just about learning new skills. "Graduates" of these classes can receive paid course certificates or accreditation, which is always great to showcase on LinkedIn. Some organizations, like Udacity, have even partnered with universities to create entirely MOOC-based degrees. 

I registered for a five-week course on Coursera, Terrorism and Counterterrorism: Comparing Theory And Practice. I’m interested in global politics and how the definition and scope of terrorism has changed since September 11, 2001, and since the topic was equally intriguing and different from the tech community I’m knee-deep in, I figured this class would provide a good introduction to massive open online courses.

The course was available under Coursera’s “Signature Track” program, so I paid $49 to receive a certificate of completion when I passed the class. It was a waste of $49.

I failed my first MOOC. 

It wasn’t for lack of trying. When I first signed up, I took it very seriously.

Lessons Learned about Moocs.  

Wilko Dijkhuis's curator insight, May 26, 2014 11:41 AM

[A very intriguing report of MOOC participation.]

. . . I failed my first MOOC. It wasn't for lack of trying. . . .  I took it very seriously. My Coursera professor ... provided great insight, paired it with interesting ... readings. . . . In my entire college career, I never failed a class. I pulled all-nighters to study for tests and write essays, and all the work I put in eventually paid off. ... My Coursera class was a totally different story.

[So far, so good, but then she continues:]

. .  . I'll admit it: I had minimal motivation.

[Here it is getting intriguing.
How exactly - or even by approximation - can one combine taking it seriously and providing great insights with minimal interest?]

 

. . . And reading on:

 

[How can a not-early-aborted college career be reconciled with the structureless essay she submitted? (there is a link to the essay in her article).

How can she be clueless why her peer reviewers did not give her a pass?
What does this tell us about her college - or high school - education?

Is the Coursera class being "a totally different story" proof that Coursera - educationally speaking - sucks; or is an indication that it can - crudely - detect talent? ]

 

-

 

Very Intriguing . . . in what universe this is possible?
