Republico esta lista de los diez artículos más leídos del eLearn Magazine. Fue publicada por Lisa Neal en su blog The eLearn Blog. El pronombre “My” indica “de Lisa”, por supuesto.

1) Michelle Everson’s Group Discussion in Online Statistics Courses
2) Michael Feldstein and I wrote up work we had done for a consulting project in Designing Usable, Self-Paced e-Learning Courses: A Practical Guide
3) Roger Schank’s The Story-Centered Curriculum
4) Laurie Rowell’s feature article Can the “$100 Laptop” Change the World?
5) Eric Sauve’s Communities of Practice: Addressing Workforce Trends Through New Learning Models
6) One of my opinion columns, My Life as a Wikipedian
7 and 8) My interviews of Elliott Masie and Rich Mayer
9) Jay Cross, Tony O’Driscoll,and Eilif Trondsen wrote Another Life: Virtual Worlds as Tools for Learning
10) Karl Kapp’s review of Jane Bozarth’s E-learning Solutions on a Shoestring

Honorable mention goes to Clare Gill’s Confessions of a Neophyte Distance Learner and Full-Time Procrastinator and Stephen Downes’ Ten Web 2.0 Things You Can Do…

Just behind that, inexplicably, was Predictions for 2007, which was slightly more popular than Predictions for 2008. Of course, the new Predictions for 2009 wasn’t even out.

Moodle en el mundo 04/12/2008

Moodle ha llegado ya a su apogeo, como demuestra este artículo de El País, publicado hoy.

Muy pocos proyectos de software libre han conseguido lo que la plataforma virtual de aprendizaje Moodle: desbancar a sus adversarios en seis años. Moodle es hoy el entorno estándar de formación telemática en los centros educativos españoles y en cada vez más empresas. Su facilidad y versatilidad, una atención impecable a la comunidad que lo usa y un original modelo de negocio son las claves de este éxito.

Hace dos años, las estadísticas de Moodle decían que dos millones de personas lo utilizaban en todo el mundo. Hoy son 25 millones y es una cifra a la baja, ya que el registro en la web es voluntario y minoritario. Más de 4.000 escuelas, institutos, academias, universidades y empresas españolas se han registrado. Hace dos años, eran 1.300.

Los docentes lo prefieren porque permite muchas formas de dar clase y porque, al ser código abierto, puede modificarse como les convenga. Lo usan sobre todo como complemento de cursos presenciales y también en educación a distancia.

La británica Open University, con 180.000 alumnos, usa Moodle desde hace años y la Universitat Oberta de Catalunya empieza a implantarlo.

Stephen Downes: The Future of Online Learning: Ten Years On 16/11/2008

Half an Hour: The Future of Online Learning: Ten Years On

Stephen Downes acaba de publicar su nuevo importante artículo: The Future of Online Learning: Ten Years On. Aquí está la introducción:

In the summer of 1998, over two frantic weeks in July, I wrote an essay titled The Future of Online Learning. (Downes, 1998) At the time, I was working as a distance education and new media design specialist at Assiniboine Community College, and I wrote the essay to defend the work I was doing at the time. “We want a plan,” said my managers, and so I outlined the future as I thought it would – and should – unfold.

In the ten years that have followed, this vision of the future has proven to be remarkably robust. I have found, on rereading and reworking the essay, that though there may have been some movement in the margins, the overall thrust of the paper was essentially correct. This gives me confidence in my understanding of those forces and trends that are moving education today.

Derek’s Blog » Education in the age of cloud computing: The Tower and the Cloud from EDUCAUSE.

While not offering a crystal ball, [the book] does provide a series of reasoned, analytical perspectives on how current trends may unfold, altering our institutions and the higher education landscape in a future that may arrive faster than we expect. In reading it, we are all challenged to move beyond acknowledging the pace of technological change to envisioning all that the tower can be if we embrace the cloud. -Diana Oblinger (EDUCAUSE)
