e-Learning Acupuncture: Mashups? Does this have anything to do with potatoes?

eLearning Acupuncture

Friday, January 26, 2007 Mashups? Well, back in 1995 if you would have asked me about the word ‘mashup’, visions of dancing potatoes in the kitchen would have popped into my head. have a real weakness for yummy mashed potatoes (*smile*). 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. ( See mashup in Wikipedia for more information. Bye-bye 486!

Google-Assisted “Search� Learning…but pls don’t say “according to Google�

Janet Clarey

You probably just “google it” and then click the Wikipedia entry for whatever you’re “googling.&#   I think this is certainly true of many Generation Y workers and those born after them. Many did not grow up using print encyclopedias and dictionaries like many older (some Gen X, boomer, mature) workers. Now that has changed across generations. I’m actually sick of Google. think this general blah came from a few too many “according to Google…&# sightings. Don’t you just want to say, “Google is not a person.&#

Forget Photoshop, PowerPoint 2010 Rocks for AHA-G!


However, I will admit that I have been using PowerPoint ever since I got into e-learning, and have interestingly never stopped loving it, especially in mashing up graphics (Although, PowerPoint can be frustrating at times). But, most educators are not graphic designers, and want to simply develop cool/relevant graphics to spice up, or enhance their websites (e.g. FORGET IT !

Information: What am I missing?

I’ve abused Kauffman’s concept of the adjacent possible by applying it to the new opportunities, untapped potential, and levels of complexity, that arise with the development of something new. What am I missing? What can we do with information that I’ve overlooked? Possibilities. Description. Examples. Create, collaborate, and share. Create information and easily. share it with others.

Incredibly Cool! Vision of Future of Application and eLearning Development

Tony Karrer

where we had speakers from IBM, Google, Microsoft, Sony and others talking about what it really means (especially for corporations). One of the most interesting things was the Enterprise Mashup demonstration by Rod Smith at IBM. Now go look at the Google Gadgets which work on Any Web Page. Now go visit my previous article: Authoring in eLearning 2.0 / Add-ins & Mash-ups. Last week I moderated an event on Web 2.0 He basically showed how a business-user would be able to wire together an application. What's this got to do with eLearning?

E-Learning Jargon: What you might think it is.well…

eLearning 24-7

Oh, there is also API (Application Program Interface) and Mashups (two more APIs – great example – Google Maps whereas they show restaurants, businesses, etc.). Then a wrap-up review of WOLC, the following week. As many of you are aware the e-learning world is well known for its jargon.  In turn it is this jargon that can create confusion and misunderstanding not only for newbies into the space but also for hardened veterans. It is raved about, talked about, fought about, and even negated by some who think it is a passing fad (why is this not surprising?).

Stealing from the Rich…


This happens at Google a lot. ” So say Ann Farmer (Information Engineer) and Julie Clow (Manager of Learning & Organizational Development), both at Google. This is an example that supports what the women from Google said in the previous point: democratizing learning — field techs sending problems to other field techs who provide solutions. This is very similar to a technology mash-up, which doesn’t try to re-invent each component in a monolithic structure.” But that doesn’t mean we can’t learn from them, right? Source?

Understanding Web 2.0

Integrated Learnings

Wikipedia has a write up on Web 2.0 The ideas that make up Web 2.0 are social networking, web mashups, and using the web to store and create content. 1. And finally, knowledge centric networks like Wikipedia and other wikis use information as an impetus for social networking. 2. A web mashup is the second concept in what makes up Web 2.0. One example of this is Woozer which combines Google Maps and technologies to give 10 day forecasts from all over the world. iGoogle does a good job of this type of mashup by aggregation. 3. Web 2.0

Funny, thing about those vendors, either their entire consumer base rose up and screamed we want tablets, or perhaps – and I know – it never happens in any industry – just perhaps, they looked again and said, “I see money in those tablets&#.

began to discuss this in a paper I published last year in Future Internet entitled Learning Space Mashups.

Go onto any social media site: Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Quora or any of the thousands of sites, and you will see people engaging with total strangers. Now before you argue about “security&# or “privacy&# , you can create (even now using mashups or some APIs) the ability to lock down or block certain areas.

What Can You Expect in 2013?

CLO Magazine

According to a December 2011 issue of Business Insider, the mobile apps analytics firm Distimo said many popular apps were games such as Angry Birds, social networking such as Facebook, Skype and Twitter, and other content such as Google Maps and iBooks.

Social and connective lock-in

George Siemens

Being able to mashup real estate data with Google maps generates more value than each element does alone. If you’ve been involved in the open Connectivism and Connective Knowledge courses, you’ve likely heard Stephen and I rant on some variation of “the knowledge is in the connections&# or “the knowledge is the connections&#. This principle applies not only to knowledge growth, but also to organizational value networks , social networks , underpins the concept of the semantic web, and so on. Companies realize this.

Is the LMS Dead?


Others say the LMS is quickly being supplanted by the proliferation of PLEs (personal learning environments — where individuals construct their own mashup of Web sites, blogs, social network contacts, e-books and magazines, asynchronous courses, and other resources) which support informal learning. Despite dissatisfaction, the demand for LMSes is up. The opportunities afforded by SaaS apps already exist with online storage (Google Docs, for example).
