Failure of Creative Commons Licenses

Tony Karrer

I’ve been trying to find out more about specific answers to Creative Commons Use in For-Profit Company eLearning. I was contacted by someone out of the Creative Commons organization, but in going back and forth with them, we realized that I was looking for legal interpretations which they clearly can’t do. They are there to help set up the licenses. But that said, it also shows a failure of the current licenses.

4 reasons to use Creative Commons

Learning with 'e's

In the social media age, sharing and repurposing are common place. This raises a number of tensions around creativity, intellectual property and copyright. Creative Commons (CC) is a copyright management system that goes a long way to addressing these issues. Creative Commons licences can enable teachers everywhere to access content and share their ideas freely. Unported License.

What instructional designers should know about Creative Commons

Matrix

Not too long ago, if someone wanted to research something, they most likely needed to go to a library, read many books almost from cover to cover in order to find the need information and spend a lot of time gathering all the elements necessary for a project. It’s a lot easier today with it being no longer necessary to physically go to a place where information is stored. A smartphone and internet connection make it possible for information to be accessed anywhere and at any time.

The Burden to Have an Informed Opinion

Tom Spiglanin

I thought too about other sources of information, such as television news. Even journal articles aren’t necessarily credible sources of information today. The Burden to Have an Informed Opinion. Patti Shank recently wrote about the Burden of an Informed Opinion. She eloquently distinguished having an opinion from having an informed opinion. Having an informed opinion, the result of critical thinking, is a core component of personal knowledge management.

What works and what doesn’t?

Technology Enhanced Learning Blog

Provide links to key information, to recommended reading, to extra not-necessarily-key-but-still-interesting reading, to videos, to books, to articles, to blogs. Open a course with something to get the learners thinking, give them information to help them further their understanding, then give them space to reflect on the initial question and how their own experiences or readings have changed.

Dialogue, debate and destinations

Learning with 'e's

In my own keynote speech the following morning, speaking to an audience of around 200 library and information professionals, I argued that libraries need to become more flexible and agile (and indeed many already are), to respond to new learning practices, and an increased interest in knowledge and research. I was challenged by delegates at Solstice to elaborate on the legal and ethical issues of Creative Commons and other Copyleft approaches. Unported License.

I Believe in the 70:20:10 framework

Tom Spiglanin

Charles Jennings promotes a 70:20:10 framework for organizational learning, where on-the-job experiential/informal learning and social learning represent the preponderance of each employee’s overall learning. Employees learn the ins and outs of their jobs, often informally from others. Allocating even 10% of employee learning to formal activities may be too much; on-the-job informal learning alone is estimated by some to exceed 95% (See Jarche, Informal Rule of Thumb).

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Informal Learning -- Getting Learners to Ask the Right Questions

Learning Visions

Thursday, February 22, 2007 Informal Learning -- Getting Learners to Ask the Right Questions In a post on informal learning by Ray Sims (thanks to Tony ), he lists out a whole bunch o good things "to do on behalf of increasing informal learning aligned with company strategy and goals." In the world of informal learning, who can be the teacher/the mentor? How can organizations ensure that the right questions are being asked by the informal learner?

I Believe in the Value of Connectedness

Tom Spiglanin

While every organization in the world is unique, most have characteristics in common. All employees are ultimately connected to one another through a common purpose to succeed and fulfill the mission of the organization. Sharing a common purpose and vision may be the most basic element of connectedness for employees, but it’s very loose and at a high-level. High performing individuals commonly enjoy even higher levels of connectedness within the organization.

I Believe in the Importance of a Personal Learning Network

Tom Spiglanin

I recently came across this description, which fits well: “A PLN is an aspect of (the larger professional network), where the individual has a group of people within his or her virtual professional network, and the relationship with each is based upon a common interest, collaborative project or research.

Interesting Information about MOOCs—An Infographic

Kapp Notes

This is published under a Creative Commons license. This was sent to me by Muhammad Saleem. The infographic takes a closer look at reasons why some professors and academics remain unconvinced. I’ve taken a MOOC and found it interesting but I was not motivated enough to complete the activities or finish the course, but that’s only a sample size of one. I think the hype is a little over the top in terms of impact on education.

I Believe in the Many Emerging Roles for Learning and Development Professionals

Tom Spiglanin

A sizable number of employees are more adept at finding information than those in Learning and Development. Like many professions who feel they “own” content areas, the strategy of being the sole purveyor of organizational knowledge can’t scale to keep up with the growth rate of information available at every employee’s fingertips.

I Believe in the Inverse Relationship Between Experience and the Value of Formal Learning

Tom Spiglanin

To be clear, I’m not talking about learning styles or preferences, nor am I making assumptions about attention spans or preferences for the format of information. Conversely, informal methods have very high value for the expert but relatively low value for those new to a given field. Like mobile users and their immediate learning needs, informal learning, in short increments, fits well into busy schedules. International License. International License.

I Believe in the Importance of Personal Knowledge Management

Tom Spiglanin

But how do we sort through all this information, effectively filter content, judge the good from bad, and make sense of it all? We all recognize Internet search as one way we find information. How we individually make sense of information captured from many sources is deeply personal and often dependent on what we’re working on, responsible for, struggling with, or learning at the moment. International License. International License.

I Believe in the Value of Sharing

Tom Spiglanin

Proprietary information must be steadfastly protected, such as organizational knowledge, unique processes, trade secrets, products in development, and intellectual property, among others. A great deal of information can be shared under many circumstances, as long as the aggregate knowledge doesn’t give away proprietary information.

Of Metaphors and Perception

Tom Spiglanin

For me, conceptual metaphors do two significant things: They can quickly bring others to a common understanding of complex things such as concepts, systems, and processes. They’re wonderful tools to help visualize how various parts of something fit together in the whole, especially while learning or during creative endeavors.

When an organization’s data, information, platforms, and services are housed in the cloud and outside the corporate firewall, employees have more facile access to their information and will be more free to work at times and places of their choosing. This evolution will also lead to new paths for informal learning, today enjoyed by those who engage in external knowledge networks. International License. International License.

Jay Cross recently summarized presentations by Peter Henschel from 1999, calling for changes in L&D and how most learning is social and largely informal. Informal learning is increasingly acknowledged as important, but viewed as the responsibility of individuals and their managers, not a role for L&D. Informal learning remains something outside the L&D purview. This work by Tom Spiglanin is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0
