Mar 16, 2010. , (Interview). Interview with Dave Cormier, who was doing something for George Siemens. Some talk about the old times when the web first started. The idea of using technology for purposes other than those for which it was designed. I look at the technology and I ask, from the perspective of learning, what are people going to want to do.
Jan 05, 2010. , (Interview). Recorded in two parts - Part One, Part Two. Where have wee been, and where are we going? I respond that we've pretty well begin to emulate the classroom online, but now we need to ask how we can move beyond that. The date is a guess; it's probably earlier.

Jan 28, 2009. Xiphos, Online, Skype (Interview).
Oct 05, 2008. , (Interview). Interview conducted no long after the start of the CCK08 course, and we discuss the course quite a bit - how the course started, what we intended to do in the course, what new technology we were using in the course. Interview date is a guess, but it's definitely in the early fall of 2008.
Sept 17, 2008. , Skype (Interview). This is an interview I recorded with Jochen Robes in preparation for the SCOPE online conference, held October 1. I talk about the CCK08 course and about connectivism in general. Interesting bit, I think, where I talk about my role in the course. Also some stuff near the end on my understanding of knowledge.
Sept 14, 2008. , Skype (Interview). In this interview with Ellyssa Kroski from mid-September Interview I discuss our current CCK08 online course and open education generally. Kroski's course, with numerous resources and a number of interviews from other people, is available online.

Jan 10, 2006. , Online (Interview). George Siemens and I in conversation some time in 2006 (the precise date is just a guess; perhaps George has better information). We're talking about the nature of knowledge and in particular connective knowledge. "Seeing the forest is kind of like seeing connective knowledge... something is a forest only as a result of our perceiving it (that way)."
Mar 02, 2005. Future of FLOSSE, online (Interview). This is the second part of my interview with Teemu Arina. The sound quality is so-so, but it was the first experience for both of us recording a Skype conversation. Arina summarizes, "Stephen talks about communities and what is actually a community and what kinds of communities people belong to. The internet allows people to pick very specific communities by topic out there. Communities are not anymore tied to a place but are more like networks, clusters and clouds." Interestingly, people looking for clarification of my Northern Voice talk, which was actually given after this interview was recorded, will find it here.
Feb 28, 2005. Future of FLOSSE, online (Interview). FLOSSE continues with its series of interviews, releasing part 1 of its interview with me today. As they did with Alan Levine, extrapolated from my remarks is a timeline of projected future events. Interesting. I think that the dates are a bit late - but then again, I always think things move too slowly, so maybe the dates are more accurate than I would pick. So here's the MP3 of Part One and we'll all wait with bated breath for Part Two.
Dec 10, 2004. Robin Good, online (Interview). Robin Good and I had a nice chat on Friday; he had the audio recorder running and links to the interview (the audio is also available on my site in MP3 format. Just to be clear, because a couple of people have raised this: I did not say I would never link to Robin Good again (my goodness), I asserted merely that I would not link to posts sponsored by Marqui. Quite a difference!
