Site Connects Users to Education Research

Laura Ascione, eSchool News, May 25, 2006
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Coverage of Rice's Connexions project. This is an odd article in that it describes Connexions as "an online library where colleagues can submit professional journal articles and review the work of their peers." This in contrast to the description at Connexions itself: "Our Content Commons contains small 'knowledge chunks' we call modules that connect into courses." The author seems to be more focused on an NCPEA project started in 2004, which did indeed produce articles and subject them to peer review; it now boasts eight articles scattered over the 19 subject 'domains'. On the bright side, as Tom Hoffman notes, the Connexions Rhaptos code is now available under an open source license.
