Analysis Five years after the first internet bubble burst, we’re now witnessing the backlash against Web 2.0 and a plethora of me-too business plans, marketing pitches and analyst reports exploiting the nebulous phrase.

Tim Berners-Lee, the individual credited with inventing the web and giving so many of us jobs, has become the most prominent individual so-far to point out that the Web 2.0 emperor is naked. Berners-Lee has dismissed Web 2.0 as useless jargon nobody can explain and a set of technology that tries to achieve exactly the same thing as “Web 1.0.”

According to this transcript, Berners-Lee was reacting to an IBM developerWorks pod cast interviewer who’d categorized Web 1.0 as connected computers and making information available, and Web 2.0 as connecting people and facilitating new kinds of collaboration. Those who remember the empowering effects of Netscape and the moment email became more than just borrowing your mate’s CompuServe account at work will also recognize such blanket assertions of historical revisionism for what they are.(leer más…)

The Commission intends to encourage the development of innovative business models and to promote the cross-border delivery of diverse online content services. It is also keen to ascertain how European technologies and devices can be successful in the creative online content markets.

[art] Un millón de miradas para una cartografía de los derechos humanos Por Pablo Mancini.

Lunes 28 de Agosto de 2006 – (Cultura digital)

Un Millón de MiradasMañana, martes 29 de agosto de 2006, la Oficina de Derechos Humanos de la Secretaría de Cultura y Educación de la ciudad de Rosario presentará el proyecto Un Millón de Miradas, una iniciativa online que integrará mapas virtuales y blogs para que los ciudadanos se expresen sobre los derechos humanos.

Con el objetivo construir una conceptualización dinámica y colectiva sobre Derechos Humanos y Ciudadanía, Un Millón de Miradas propone que los contenidos del sitio sean producidos por las personas que decidan participar e involucrase en ese millón de perspectivas: “cada cual ve la ciudad que está frente a sus ojos, la que habita, la que anda y recorre todos los días, pero no es menos real la ciudad que sueña, la que imagina y la que desea”, invitan desde el sitio.

El funcionamiento será muy simple: se trata de un mapa de la ciudad de Rosario construido por un millón de píxeles, donde cada internauta podrá elegir un píxel. Por cada píxel elegido se creará un blog. Así las cosas, cada rosarina, cada rosarino, podrá publicar textos, citas, poesías, animaciones digitales, dibujos, fotos y materiales multimedia para expresar su mirada sobre los derechos humanos en la ciudad.

Oklahoma State University has selected a solution from Desire2Learn to replace WebCT & Blackboard, and provide 10,000 online courses to 30,000 students campus wide

KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ONTARIO–(CCNMatthews – Aug. 29, 2006) – Desire2Learn, a world-leading provider of enterprise eLearning solutions announced today that the Oklahoma State University has selected Desire2Learn’s Learning Environment to provide over 10,000 courses to 30,000 students institution wide.

In early December 2005, the Oklahoma State University created a Course Management System (CMS) task force, who were charged with selecting an innovative single course management system that would replace the existing platform. After a thorough evaluation including a number of vendors, Desire2Learn’s Learning Environment was selected as the Course Management System of choice amongst Oklahoma State University’s task force, faculty and students.

“Desire2Learn had an extensive array of tools and functionality that met or exceeded all the needs of our administration, instructors and students for today and the future,” insists Samantha Krawczyk, Information Technology Manager at Oklahoma State University. “However, what really set Desire2Learn apart from the incumbent was that Desire2Learn truly believes in developing tools to drive pedagogy. It is this focus on enhancing teaching and learning as well as meeting client requirements that is extremely important to us.”(leer más…)

[post] E-Learning Is the Future and the Future Is Now

by Michael Sexton

If you ask 10 people to name the greatest business thinker of the last century, I am willing to bet that at least eight of them, and maybe all 10, will pick Peter Drucker.

There’s a very good reason. Drucker invented the modern science of management in 1954 when he wrote The Practice of Management. When he later wrote The Effective Executive in 1965, he set the course for thousands of books about executive excellence that followed.

Drucker consistently anticipated the future – an ability that stayed with him undiminished until he passed away last year at the age of 95.

AUG. 27 2:45 P.M. ET Every day, millions of students taking online college courses act in much the same way as their bricks-and-mortar counterparts. After logging on, they move from course to course and do things like submit work in virtual drop boxes and view posted grades — all from a program running on a PC.

It may seem self-evident that virtual classrooms should closely resemble real ones. But a major education software company contends it wasn’t always so obvious. And now, in a move that has shaken up the e-learning community, Blackboard Inc. has been awarded a patent establishing its claims to some of the basic features of the software that powers online education.
