    1. Free, Open, Flexible: Rethinking Learning Materials Online

      One of my early sessions on Open Education, with an emphasis on leveraging the material we create in the course of our work.

    1. It is probably fair to say that the amount of time spent preparing the online component of blended learning is influenced considerably by the experience, knowledge and skills of the teacher.

      Sure. But it's also fair to say that this is true of teachers' preparation of offline learning materials.

    2. lthough some studies might argue that creating blended learning materials could take longer to prepare than traditional teaching, other studies argue that preparing for online teaching takes less time than typical face-to-face teaching preparation

      But people often tend to discount the work (and frameworks that guide this work) that's already gone into the preparation of F2F materials.

    1. What I think we're lacking is proper tooling, or at least the knowledge of it. I don't know what most people use to write Git commits, but concepts like interactive staging, rebasing, squashing, and fixup commits are very daunting with Git on the CLI, unless you know really well what you're doing. We should do a better job at learning people how to use tools like Git Tower (to give just one example) to rewrite Git history, and to produce nice Git commits.

    1. Though the web has evolved, its methods for training future web developers have not. Sure, the resources are more attractive now. They’re better written and more easily findable. But they continue to be geared toward a very narrow kind of person. They’re generally online, self-guided, impersonal, and novice-unfriendly.

    1. Resource Repository Network will create a resource graph of learning/training resources data from multiple sources and formats including live and dynamic data

      Sounds pretty close to Comète.

    1. While I’d struggle to tell you how I learn best, there is one question that I’d always be able to answer enthusiastically: What would you like to learn next? Right now I’m learning JavaScript and have plans to give Spanish another go. I should probably pick up those guitar lessons again soon as well. Thankfully we live in a time when it’s trivially easy to gain access to resources and to learning activities. The problem is finding out the ones that work best for you. Perhaps that’s why we carry around in our pockets devices that can access pretty much the sum total of human knowledge yet use them to LOL at amusing pictures of cats. What are the barriers here? I’d suggest there are three main ones: 1 Curriculum - the series of activities that build towards a learning goal 2 Credentials - the ability to show what you know 3 Community - the cohort of peers you feel you are part of, along with access to ‘experts’

      How do I learn best? What resources are the best ones for me?
