Heiko Idensen's curator insight, February 16, 2013 2:05 AM

.... Interesting discussions in the comments:

"

I was on a panel a little while ago, and the question why Coursera and Udacity were generating so much attention was raised, what made this different? I responded that it was because open education initiatives had managed to quickly raise millions in venture capital funding, which made them suddenly worthy of “serious” attention. I was chided by other panelists for being glib and cynical. Maybe.

We in higher education are so used to being a relatively insignificant story in media and business narratives. And times are tough, we all agree that something needs to change. So when suddenly something comes along which garners unprecedented attention in the New York Times (or wherever) it creates a heady sensation. Even though the money invested in Coursera or Udacity amounts is rather small by the standards of venture capital, it smells like the big time. It’s exciting. The rush to respond by gutting higher ed capacity reminds me a bit of when a small city is promised a professional sports team (if only they build a stadium at public expense and hand it over to the team owner for free), or an economically depressed region is promised a factory (if only they are prepared to offer tax breaks and to drop environmental and labour regulation).

.

Brian Lamb says:
..."

So why are people interested? Because they want empire, they want to set up colleges over seas, they want MORE. Not better. MORE. The MOOC American Football team will be called the Twelvers as this is the year of their goldrush.

They could have built Coursera and Udacity on Wikiversity. They didn’t."

longpd says:

"

I’m reminded of Seymour Papert’s explanation for the promise of computers as a learning tool evaporating under the pressure to conform to the conceptions of what schooling ‘should be’. He used the analogy of computers acting like learning viruses and the schools curricular defense mechanisms acting like antibodies to preserve the health aka homeostasis of the “school system”. Early uses if computers by creative teachers outside the curricular structures of the day were exciting, innovative disruptions. Destabalized schools were running fevers of uncertainty with spasms of unprecedented learner engagement. But the system adapted once it recognized that this new pedagogy could be treated like just another tool and encircled with a curriculum offered in a course period as ‘computer skill’. Schools knew how to teach instrumental skills and prganise them safely into classrooms. These destabilizing thought machines could corralled into s room and safely slotted into a program that was like it thankfully always had been. And the insurgency was tamed and the battle won, even if the opportunity to augment learning lost.

It is a familiar story. Papert’s conclusiom was innovation in existing schools is impossible. They first myst be destroyed & rebuilt anew. I hope that’s not the case with MOOCs and open scholarship. But our ability to learn from the past is not encouraging.

Classroom Salon

Classroom Salon | Edu virtual meetings | Scoop.it

Salon is the most comprehensive web-based, mobile enabled active learning system ever developed. Use Salon for active learning, flipped classrooms, social learning and group learning.

In 2008, Professors Ananda Gunawardena a Computer Scientist, and David Kaufer, a humanist, teamed up to build a platform to integrate the context and interpretation of visual media to streamline communication. It was a simple idea. They never imagined that it would lead to the amazing product that it is today.

Today Salon is used by over tens of thousands of invitation only teachers and students all over the world. The tool is used in many ways that they never imagined in 2008. That is the innovation in Salon.
