Today the word ‘mashup’ has a much different denotation. realize now that PointCast in 1995 was a rudimentary type of mashup: a collection of information from other web services that are integrated together into one web page.

Computers, Learning Professionals, and their Roles in Curation

The Learning Circuits

The fact is, if you're reading this post on the Learning Circuits Blog, chances are you already are a curator, whether your realize it or not. Let's back up a second though; perhaps saying the definition of curator has expanded isn't accurate, as it implies expanding a single definition to include a broader group. I do believe what a curator does for a museum is different than what a my mother does for her facebook wall. Search engine optimization and filtering tools make it much easier for a curator to find resources he or she wants to share. Who Qualifies as a Curator?

LMSs that kick ass: Mzinga

Janet Clarey

My more recent contact at Mzinga is Dave Wilkins. I’m a more recent reader of Dave’s blog and occasionally have conversations with him in Twitter. While authors could always share resources within Publisher, they now can communicate more effectively and share their expertise through social technologies such as developer blogs; a presence monitor that indicates not only who’s online, but what they’re working on; chat functionality, an authoring dashboard and individual project dashboards, and deep audit and report capabilities. It’s Friday yay! Thanks Dave!

MOOCs for the win!

George Siemens

Massive open online courses, or MOOCs, are getting attention on various blogs and news sites. I’ll try and synthesize the conversation over the last few weeks and describe the role of MOOCs in education. Tony then followed up with another post arguing that: MOOCs and MITx are more a threat to current university continuing education departments than they are to the traditional credit programs. We provided readings each week to start the conversation, but learners largely defined the domain of knowledge exploration by providing resources and shaping the discussion.
