Jochen Robes über Bildung, Lernen und Trends

The Role of Open Educational Resources in Personal Learning

Fast ein philosophisches Manifest. Stephen Downes startet langsam, spricht über die „Idea of Openness“, über die verschiedenen Aspekte und Perspektiven auf „Openness“. Dann führt er in die „Language of LOLcats“ ein („Now I’m going to change gears, and I’m going to change gears really dramatically. …“), streift Semiotik, Semantik und all die sprachtheoretischen Untiefen, um – Gott sei Dank – am Ende wieder bei der „(Open) Language of Learning“ aufzutauchen. Etwas für ruhige Minuten am Wochenende.

„That’s the basis that George Siemens and I used to create the massive open online courses. The idea of these courses was that, and is that, we provide as much material for conversation as possible and set up this conversational network where the exchange of this material can take place. So the course itself becomes a network, the open educational resources are the concepts, the words, the vocabulary that people in this network use to communicate with each other. And that’s in fact exactly what happens.“
Stephen Downes, Half an Hour, 6. November 2011
