The sound of learning
Dec 11, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Dave Ferguson getting it (mostly) right again: "Natalie and Buddy are exemplary musicians–but notice what’s going on in the video around the 2:00 mark: a whole stageful of musicians, ranging over at least a span of 60 years of age, takes up bows and dives into the music. No one’s tracking them in an FMS (Fiddle Management System); no one’s worried about the failure to capture and embed Shareable Audio Objects. People put time and effort into becoming better at an activity they find worthwhile." Of course, it's good that someone cared enough to create a sharable audio-video object, otherwise we wouldn't have this example to share.

Re: The sound of learning

True enough (mostly), Stephen, though the Shareable Audio Object I made up was a (possibly) mocking reference to the holy grail of SCORM. [Comment] [Permalink]
