New Technology Supporting Informal Learning

Stephen Downes, Half an Hour, Apr 27, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

From my Half an Hour blog, in preparation for the Challenges 2009 conference in Braga, Portugal: "This paper describes experimentation in the development of distributed online courses and in software - particularly, the personal learning environment - that support the formation of connections between the far-flung pieces of such courses. This work, in turn, is suggesting and supporting the model of a course network supporting and informing an ever-shifting set of course episodes. The intent of such systems is to to facilitate the conversation and interaction around episodic learning events in a distributed environment, transforming them from elements in a linear flow-based design to free-floating objects in an environment." Enjoy.
