Audrey Watters unpacks the latest tech hype: Blockchain, and begins to look at what it might mean for education. Well worth the read, and definitely (possibly) related to the topic we've been looking at in this MOOC.
Is blockchain poised to be “the next big thing” in education?

Nice illustration of the difference between an LMS and an open, connected course.

Hi all,

This week is the last week of #NRC01PL , but the networking and learning is never done! I've lurked on the sidelines of the +Peeragogy Project for a couple of years now, and am incorporating many of the principles I've picked up there into the online course I'm co-designing for filmmakers becoming film school teachers.

There's a lot here to like and these hangouts are every Monday (7 pm here in Europe).
 
What is Peeragogy? It's "Learning for the People!"

TOPIC: What would YOU like to talk about? Suggest a topic in the comments!

You may download the public domain version of the Handbook at GitHub: https://github.com/Peeragogy or order the print book on IndieBound (or that other big online retailer).

Ping us if you'd like to join the panel, we can take up to 10 guests. Please be sure you have microphone and headset/earbuds if you'd like to participate.

This Hangout On Air is hosted by The Peeragogy Handbook. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Cautionary tales on being responsible for your own api...
The tweet above and Alan's comment on the post (below) and figured I haven't really made a chunk of why I'm doing this clear or even what I'm doing clear. I'm probably a mix of more-middle-of-the-road and ambitious than I've been able to articulate so far. I declare no holy war.

For those who didn't catch it on Twitter: here's the announcement from +Stephen Downes on what happened with #NRC01PL.

It's a shame the NRC is changing focus on this.

Thanks for the work you put into it, Stephen. It was an interesting ride.

Ok, so it's been most of the week with no updates on what's going on, so I'm going to assume #NRC01PL is officially dead.

I've been thinking, however, that I might keep this community going - even if it's just for me. I have now gathered quite a few resources on personal learning here, and see no reason not to continue. At least for a while.

My posting frequency will most likely be reduced without the daily updates from +Stephen Downes, but perhaps some of you others will decide to post too.

Or not. That's cool too.

I absolutely believe the network can survive without it's facilitator! But I'll miss the videos too; I don't think they can be replaced...

I'll make this my own week 7 reading: An Open, Online Course Model to Prepare Faculty to Teach Online by Lisa Lane.

I imagine many have read it; it's a good case study of creating a training programme for higher education faculty who are preparing to teach online. Lane discards the technocentric and LMS-based approaches and focusses on experiential learning and open pedagogy. Well worth the read.

Excellent choice. Add +Lisa M Lane's blog to your PLN along with course archives and Diigo collection (renamed from PoT Cert). 

PS I like the idea of each of us coming up with our own readings for Week 7 -- tweeting and posting them here. I'd be hard pressed to come up with just one. For starters, I'd go with +Tom Whitby's 2010 "My PLN Blueprint in 5 parts" https://tomwhitby.wordpress.com/2010/12/21/my-pln-blueprint-in-5-parts/

Here's another thought. Invite +Stephen Downes to come on over and wrap up from here. Let's continue that discussion on alternate platforms for personal learning.

Great post by +Jenny Mackness on personal learning assistants.

On a tangent, this whole discussion has started me thinking about the integration of various types of automation with the human factor in communication and education. One of my observations in going through #NRC01PL is that +Stephen Downes has created a great deal of automation of mundane tasks for himself.

I am quite convinced that is necessary for his professional life and enables him to devote more energy to the important things. At the same time, there have been times during this MOOC where I have felt (and I am only speaking of my own experience here) that the automation has been a barrier to interaction and making connections.

Is direct interaction necessary for a good cMOOC? Perhaps not; there are connections made through indirect interaction and I am certainly learning things (otherwise I would not have bothered to stay in it), but the automation does something to the experience that bothers me, even if I can't quite put my finger on it.

Hi Fredrik - in my case direct interaction has come about as a result of a cMOOC rather than in it. For me a MOOC is simply a network of people and resources in which I may or may not make valuable connections. These valuable connections have become valuable by some sort of mutual engagement or joint enterprise (to quote Etienne Wenger), i.e. through 'doing' something together - for me that has been research. Nearly all my research colleagues are people I have met in MOOCs, but have got to know and to work with outside the MOOC - some of these colleagues I have met face-to-face, others not. For me the private conversations, out of the public eye, are what I value, but I wouldn't be able to have those conversations without first being in the network. So I think I understand what you mean.

"The data is / must be owned by the individual" - yes. Absolutely. And ties nicely to the #FTTE presentation Thursday night http://bryanalexander.org/2016/03/30/this-weeks-forum-features-jim-groom-and-radical-digital-learning/

What does that spell? elp-ss-ss ;-) OK...well that sounded more funny in my head... Anyway! Week 5 of NRC01PL (last week! All caught up! yay!) was about Learning Performance Support Systems. My first introduction to LPSS (a brief one at that) was in an instructional design course almost 10 years ...
