    1. and because we largely lack the infrastructure to support their creation and maintenance

      maintiance of course content is hard.

      Some of the tooling available to do this is getting better, I remember the hassles we had trying to keep the Angular training materials up to date, it was a maintenance nightmare.

      I think some of what is being done with MDX, Gatsby, HeadlessCMS, and sort of 'content as modules' can help with this infrastructure.

      I'm also curious to see where ideas like Roam, Zettelkasten, Smart Notes, etc could also help with this.

      Also 'minimal training modules', etc, and even things like https://notes.andymatuschak.org/About_these_notes could be used to have better networked thought and learnig

    2. Online courses tend to be based around linear playlists of videos, along with associated readings and other activities. These often look like university courses filmed and translated more or less directly to online form. More internet native courses tend to be shorter and more focused, but still just as linear and video-centric.

      agree with this.

      I've often thought that at times learning feels more like the Path fo Exile skill spider-web than a linear path.

      Many 'road maps', 'how to' feels like a ladder - and then it's not always clear how much you need to learn about a certain step before moving onto the next step, while also failing to realize that you may have learned the outcomes from the step in another way.

    3. What is a "course"? And more importantly: what more can a course be?

      I like this framing, as something that I've been thinking for awhile is that when it comes to teaching/education - people are too caught up in an old style of education and are trying to copy-paste the classroom setting into the online world.

      While some K-12 education seems to be adapting a bit faster, higher education still feels a little stuck.

      Bootcamps are a little different, but gaps still exist --- got thinking about this also when talking with Sam recently

    1. “Professional development often meant filling in to an auditorium and being talked at from a stage,” says Ferguson.

      Naturally, because you know, educators know how to educate other educators, right?!

    1. Labaree argues that American education has had three goals that have shifted in importance over time: democratic equality, social efficiency, and social mobility. Democratic equality supports the idea that education is a public good, necessary for creating informed citizens.

    1. Essentially, we will make it worth your while, trust us. We've got the people and have done it before ( hmm..not in this way you have not). We will take advantage of you being in different parts of the world to include field visits and community building and hey, we'll even let you do it part time so you can balance this and a full-time job. How do you do that ? Well..tbd. But we will charge you the same.

      What's missing is technology and quality of production. They have made an amazing education experience with the Shackleton expedition, but if its zoom, and not a custom platform, with VR built into the experience natively, is it really at the cutting-edge ?

    1. What about the availability of attention on the other side ? Does have field visits locally, possibly alone, counter the fact that most learners do not have a study or home office ? Or is the a trigger for altering homes to have them. ?

    1. La rentrée 2018 d’un collégien de 6e a coûté en moyenne 190 €. C'est le minimum car si l'on ajoute des frais annexes (achat de dictionnaires, livres de poche, assurance), ce montant peut augmenter. L'ARS (allocation de rentrée scolaire) attribuée aux familles les moins favorisées, 389 € par enfant inscrit au collège, doit permettre de couvrir toutes les dépenses éducatives.

    1. There is some surprise from the general public about how intelligent and articulate members of the animal-style body mod community (and furry fandom) are, concerning their weirdness and animalistic tendencies. Stalking Cat has a degree in electronics engineering.

      In addition, Stalking Cat's work is specialised enough that they have a solid position in their employment field, and isn't worried in that regard. Adding onto that, Stalking Cat is quite introverted, and in their day-to-day life, and Cat really doesn't give a shit, despite their empathy. It was something they had to do, and Cat knows you may feel some way about that, but it's irrelevant. (Without being so brash in words.)
