Reflections on On-line Educa Berlin

Graham Attwell, Pontydysgu, Dec 07, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This seems right: "Probably the biggest trend is the movement away from a focus on VLEs towards looking at the use of social software for learning." And this: "YouTube is developing into a kind of University of the Grassroots. Instead of learning being a top-down process, dictated by institutions and governments, it is evolving into a bottom-up process driven by users. If you want to learn, say, the Python programming language (often used in mobile phones) then your first move may not be to sign up at a local educational institution but instead to look at one of the YouTube videos and benefit from the reactions of other viewers."
