E-Learning Generations

„In recent years I have been working on two major concepts: first, the connectivist theory of online learning, which views learning as a network process; and second, the massive open online course, or MOOC, which is an instantiation of that process. These, however, represent only the most recent of what can be seen as a series of ‚generations‘ of e-learning. In this talk I describe these generations and discuss how they led to, and are a part of, the most recent work in online learning.

Man braucht etwas Atem für diese E-Learning-Geschichte! Stephen Downes startet mit den ersten Bulletin Board-Systemen, nimmt dann Lernplattformen und e-Learning 2.0 mit auf die Reise, um schließlich in der Gegenwart, bei MOOCs, zu enden. In seiner Zählung stellen Massive Open Online Courses die sechste Generation des Online-Lernens dar. Und hier findet sich unter anderem der schöne und wichtige Satz: Learning in a MOOC, we advised, is in the first instance a matter of learning how to select content.“ Am Ende wagt Stephen noch einen Ausblick: „From my perspective, the first three generations of e-learning (and the web generally) represent a focus on documents, while the second three represent a focus on data. … The next three generations of web and learning technology will be based on the idea of flow.“
