Marc My Words: In Learning and Performance Ecosystems, the Whole is Greater Than the Sum of the Parts (Part One)
Marc Rosenberg, Learning Solutions Magazine, 2014/10/16


Marc Rosenberg describes what is essentially the Learning and Performance Support System (LPSS) we are in the process of launching here at NRC. He writes, "A learning and performance ecosystem introduces new capabilities that integrate learning and performance solutions into the work environment, where the vast preponderance of learning actually takes place. While training is still important, the overall strategy minimizes the need for workers to leave work in order to learn, reducing work disruption, and placing more learning opportunities directly into the workflow."

Comparing xMOOCs and cMOOCs: philosophy and practice
Tony Bates, online learning and distance eductaion resources, 2014/10/16


Good post clearly describing the difference between xMOOCs and cMOOCs. "The early MOOC courses had relatively identifiable designs which still permeate most MOOCs. At the same time, there are two quite different philosophical positions underpinning xMOOCs and cMOOCs, so we need to look at each design model separately." See more Bates in this post defining what a MOOC is.
