Story
Tagline
Education technologist and network practitioner. Developing networked communities in education and research.
Introduction

I'm an educational technologist working in higher education, committed to improving learning and work experiences through emerging technologies. My special interests are personal learning networks, learning design, digital literacies and open badges. 

I have worked for 15 years in eLearning, in the Netherlands, New Zealand and Australia, in corporate training and in higher education.

I’m Dutch but have lived in Germany, Ireland, Egypt, New Zealand and Australia. If asked, I'll tell you I'm a kiwi.

I like to play my ukulele.

Disappointing to see that social media has not been able to show so many that #Illich ideas of #deschooling are viable
Online learning, new media, connectivism, MOOCs, personal learning environments, new literacy, and more from Stephen Downes

Slides from my social media workshop today. Always exciting to hear about the new research projects and see how we can build a campaign for them.

Adding to our #lxdesign resources... @lxdesignco 
Think of the last time you ordered a book, booked a flight, or bought a car. How did you choose which book to read, where to go for vacation, or which car was best for you? You may have searched online, read reviews, or asked others for advice to help you make an informed decision. In a word, you learned. Learning is a complex process with distinct stages, each with corresponding tasks and emotions. Understanding how users learn can help us desig...

Okay, I discovered something new about Coursera, which makes me even more BAFFLED about the people who designed this software and what they were thinking. My main complaint about the software is that it does nothing to facilitate person-to-person LASTING connections: there are no profile pages, no avatars, no links from names to profile pages, no way to follow someone - just discussion board forums and threads where your name shows up at the bottom of your post and (student) in parentheses to indicate you're a student, plus I have seen one person labeled (staff). DRIVES ME CRAZY. I see a comment by someone that strikes me as interesting, makes me want to connect with that person, but I can do NOTHING - cannot find out anything about that person, and will probably never see them again, given the massiveness of the course.
BUT... here's the weirdness - apparently there is a "leaderboard" for the discussion boards based on some algorithm for "reputation" - (I noticed a link to this at the bottom of a forum page)... so, I go to this leaderboard thing, and there I am, currently #3 on the leaderboard, and there is a whole list of other people's names, some of which I recognize... and WHAT NOW? I cannot click on any of these names to see who these people are, I cannot see any of their contributions to the discussions, cannot follow them, cannot do anything.
So hell's bells what on earth is the point of creating a pseudo-personal thing like this, ranking people like this... when you cannot even connect with another person...???
I am BAFFLED.
Any possible explanations for this would be welcome. Surely the people who built Coursera have used Twitter or Facebook or some social network and understand that people like to connect with each other, right?
Anyway, as I complain about the software, do not let it be said I did not give it a serious try. Although the discussion board software strikes me as basically awful, worse than awful, I have been trying hard to participate this week to see if I could make it work (the subject matter is very near and dear to my heart)... so, thanks to all this banging my head against the discussion board wall I have acquired a good "reputation" I guess ha ha.

I agree with everything in this post by Tony Bates. Except for the future of learning design in institutions. I think how we develop and deliver programmes and courses must evolve to begin delivering better experiences or institutions will begin to lose students to other providers.

I do like my Treehouse badges but so wish they were open...
 
Not Open Badges (yet!) but a decent overview of one way to create a badge system.
Gamification and social media currently play a huge role in web design and in our newly launched e-learning website, Treehouse. “Brochure style” websites are quickly becoming outdated, and instead users expect beautifully designed environments that are interactive and encourage exploration....

They have two choices: #1 - Integrate Mozilla Open Badges into their current LMS or #2 - Start using an LMS that already has Open Badges integrated.

The Open Badges issuer code and docs are available online: https://github.com/mozilla/openbadges-specification/blob/master/Assertion/latest.md
