25 Years of EdTech – 2000: Learning objects
LO couldn't die fast enough. Locally, they were pushed top down by admins looking for standardization. Pedagogically, the problem was decontextualization that drained them of worth outside of training.

Politics of openness
I love it, but I hate it at the same time. It's not the politics, which are invigorating, but the ideology. Education is liberal. Get over it.

Faculty Views About Online Learning -
via Tech-Rhet. Bar charts. Online is more work for less educational quality, and practiced mainly by the tenure-track faculty. I'm assuming this refers mainly to institutionalized CMS stuff. That's my over-generalization for the day.

Stephen Downes: Deinstitutionalizing Education
Go, Stephen: "While a great deal of virtual ink has been spilled over the need to reform our schools and universities, I think we need to question how we manage education altogether. For it is manifest that the institution, the form in which we have managed education and society in general, has ultimately come to failure." This article is difficult to summarize, but it places institutionalized ed in there with corporate greed, exploitation, outsourcing, and powerlessness. And my university says, "Education is broken because we don't assess." Ed is broken alright, but it's broken like corporations are.

'Open Teaching': When the World Is Welcome in the Online Classroom
Brief overview of open courses - that gets a number of matters wrong (ie: You don't open Bboard. You move to a different platform). Worth referring to in order to see how open courses are an attitude, not a technology. Comments from Siemens and Drexler correct the article.

: "What was different was the radically decentralized, "kids in control" environment. Instead of restricting posts to a closed discussion forum in a system like Blackboard, the class left students free to debate anywhere. Some used Moodle, an open-source course-management system. Others preferred blogs, Twitter, or Ning. In the virtual world Second Life, students built two Spanish-language sites. Some even got together face-to-face to discuss the material."
