#OEB13 Post Review

eLearning 24-7

As for the SPOCS (the newest entry to the whole OER (Open educational resources) world) – I saw no mention of it. But I did hear mention of OER via attendees and a couple of vendors. They state it it more than an ePortfolio and I definitely agree on that – but my only question is whether or not students would take the time to complete all the information that was needed to really make it shine. .

Why Open Content is Not Yet Adopted in the Workplace

Kapp Notes

UNESCO helped to define OER as educational materials and resources "offered freely and openly for anyone to use and under some licenses to re-mix, improve and redistribute." OERs include learning content as well as tools to create and share the content. Since it is expensive and time consuming to have a person take stand up materials and design them for online delivery, that step is often not funded and the result is a library of information related to a course but not a course.

11 Differences between a MOOC and an Online Course

ID Reflections

I love this definition of MOOCs by Ignatia Inge deWaard in her e-book, MOOC Yourself: “A MOOC is a non-defined pedagogical format to organize learning /teaching/training on a specific topic in an informal, online, and collaborative way.” MOOCs on various topics can be set up using blended content – some custom designed and some re-purposed from OERs and other available content from the net as long as one takes care to note the various IPR-related policies.

Future of Higher Education – Digital Textbooks and Courses

MagicBox Blog

Universities are also benefiting from technology as they are able to adopt elearning trends such as contextual learning, two-way conversational learning, using video as a means of informative content, and enhancing use of all available data. Colleges and universities are increasingly turning to open educational resources (OER) as a solution to the rapidly rising cost of college textbooks.

These were OER Commons and Open Courseware Consortium. Much of the content is proprietary information not to be shared externally. This month's Big Question is "how do we leverage open content in workplace learning?" To learn more about about some of opportunities available in open content, I visited the sites listed on the Big Question post. For the first time, I perused these sites.

Beyond Cost-Savings: Advantages of MOOCs for Corporate Training

Your Training Edge

Many MOOCs are built using open educational resources (OER) or a combination of OER and proprietary content. New research and information can be introduced into a training program and reach all learners in real-time, making the training more relevant and responsive to real-world problems and scenarios. Massive open online courses (MOOCs) are currently disrupting higher education and the stage is set for them to be a major force in corporate training as well.

And the overarching themes are: Informal Learning, Communities of Practice,Connectivism Personal Learning Environments, Open Distributed Learning, Net Pedagogy, Learning “Design” in a2.0 This sentence from Stephen Downes post AWorld to Change best exemplifies one of the key drivers behind a conferencelike EDGEX2012: We need to move beyondthe idea that an education is something that is provided for us, and toward theidea that an education is something that we create for ourselves.

What Makes a MOOC a MOOC?

ID Reflections

The OER movement was the trigger for the MOOCs then. None of this is new information or insight. The organizational walls are porous such that the outside can flow in without too much of a challenge while sensitive information is protected. MOOCs have taken the world of higher ed and corporate learning by the proverbial storm.

Rapid Elearning and MOOCs: Keeping Up with Change

So, how can organizations help their workforce keep informed of the latest innovations so that they can remain competitive? As such, this format is most suitable for content that is time sensitive and training areas where information can change quickly, such as technology and software updates, or where all employees need to learn the content as soon as possible, such as for regulatory or policy changes. Technology is changing at an exponential rate.
