When it comes to perspectives on teaching and learning, the Web 2.0 has changed everything! Don’t believe it? Back in December 2006, Time Magazine named “you” as the person of the year. The Web 2.0 (also called the Read-Write Web) empowers learners to generate ideas and comments online, rather than simply read or browse someone else’s. In effect, instead of passive consumption-based learning, we are living in a participatory age where learners have a voice and potentially some degree of ownership over their own learning. Here at the start of the twenty-first century, emerging technologies – such as online photo albums, blogs, wikis, podcasts, ebooks, YouTube videos, massive multiplayer online games, simulations, virtual worlds, and wireless and mobile computing – are generating waves of new opportunities in higher education, K-12 schools, corporate training, and other learning environments.
And today’s millennial learner, immersed in an increasingly digital world is seeking richer and more engaging learning experiences. Amid this rising tide of expectations, instructors across educational sectors are exploring and sharing innovative ways to use technology to foster interaction, collaboration, and increased excitement for learning. Unfortunately, as any high school student will tell you, this is far less common than most would hope. In response, it is time to take advantage of the new participatory learning culture where learners build, tinker with, explore, share, and collaborate with others online. It is also time to exploit free and open educational resources, opencourseware, learning portals, and open source software across educational sectors and income levels. This course, therefore, will be a journey into the learning technologies (i.e., nature), pedagogical opportunities (i.e., nurture), and the people, societies, and cultures where this is happening now! Some of you will create and publish a cross-cultural Wikibook on Web 2.0 technology; others will create video blogs, and still others will design YouTube-like videos. We will explore the motivational and educational value of YouTube and other online videos and create a few of our own. Of course, we will also blog on our experiences.
In an age when eyeball-to-eyeball learning is no longer necessary, effective online instructors do not simply teach, but moderate, coach, and assist in the learning process. Today a teacher, trainer, professor, or instructional designer often assumes the role of concierge with a wealth of freely available tools and resources to guide her learners. The mantra in this class is that today, “WE-ALL-LEARN” with Web technology. But designated “instructors” or “teachers” are not always today. In this more open twenty-first century learning world, anyone can learn anything from anyone else at any time. Importantly, strategies discussed and modeled will address learning in all formats—K-12, higher education, corporate, university, military settings, etc. You too can participate.
After the course, students should be able to:
1. Define and use different Web 2.0 technologies;
2. Explain and demonstrate the educational benefits of podcasts, wikis, blogs, virtual worlds, simulations, social networking software, etc.
3. Critique articles related to emerging learning technologies and associated pedagogy with them.
4. Use, recommend, or create online resources and portals in a variety of educational settings.
5. Design an innovative research or evaluation project related to online learning;
6. Successfully submit research, grant, or other proposals related to learning technologies, the Web 2.0, e-learning, or systemic change in education to conferences, foundations, summits, or institutes.
7. Recognize and potentially contact many of the key players and scholars in the field of online learning and Web 2.0 learning technologies.
8. Consult with organizations to evaluate the effectiveness of e-learning courses, programs, and events as well as Web 2.0 technologies.
9. Make recommendations regarding online learning initiatives, programs, and strategies.
10. Obtain a model, guide, or framework for thinking about new technology tools and resources in education. Use this framework for strategic planning reports, retreats, consulting, and other places or situations where a macro lens on learning technology and educational reform is needed.
None!!! The world of learning should be FREE!

Tidbits: Besides reading 3-4 assigned articles each week, during the semester I want you to read at least 30 tidbits from the list of readings below (preferably more than 40) and watch at least 5 videos (typically these are very short online news or magazine articles). On October 18, you will turn in a 1-3 page summary of the tidbits that you read so far and indicate what you read from worse to best in order and briefly state why the top 10-15 were your favorites. Post it to your Oncourse dropbox or bring to class.
Discussions and Small Group Activities Related to the Readings: I want to try something new. At the start of each week, I will have 3-6 students in the class present on one of the main articles for the week for 99 seconds. This will take 10 minutes. I will review comment on their presentations and findings for 3-5 minutes. In addition, each week, we will have discussions or the readings using different types of instructional activities (debates, role play, best 3 questions, article quotes, etc.). You will also lead and moderate such activities at least once during the semester. You may be asked to bring a set of questions based on one or more articles to class. Perhaps a few times during the semester this discussion will extend to Oncourse. There are 30 points allocated to participating in weekly in face-to-face class sessions as well as any online discussions. 27-30 for high participators; 24-26 for medium participators; 21-23 for low participators; and 0-20 for others.
Synchronous Session: We will have some guest speakers in Adobe Connect Pro (formerly known as “Breeze”). Most will occur during class time and will be archived.
Instead of a large class discussion forum, in this option, you would create a Weblog (i.e., a blog) to reflect on your personal article readings and ideas related to class. A minimum of 15 posts (30 points). You might create a Blog using Pitas.com, Blogger.com, Movable Type, LiveJournal, Diaryland, Free-Conversant, WordPress, or some other blogging tool. A 2-4 page single-spaced reflection paper on this activity is due December 5th with your blog postings attached (40 points). Post it to your Oncourse dropbox or bring to class.
Critical Friends: You will be assigned a critical friend to give feedback to on their postings each week. You are asked to give a minimum of 15 feedback posts (30 points or 2 points per post). Keep in mind that students should avoid doing all their blog posting or video or podcast productions at the end of the semester. If you do that, your critical friend partner cannot give you any feedback. Students tend to get frustrated and complain when this happens so please be considerate of your partner.

Find and evaluate a summary report, technical report, or a strategic plan of a company, university, non-profit organization, school, state, province, country, or region related to the Web 2.0 or e-learning and critique it. For instance, you might pick the state or country where you were born or perhaps where you plan to live after graduation. You might find the strategic plan online or request a hardcopy version. I want you to not simply read and critique the report but to also interview someone who created it or is/was affected by that report. You might discuss and critique the online learning technologies highlighted, proposed pedagogical plans, intended training methods, targeted skills or competencies, or evaluation methods detailed. You might visit the institution or organization or write someone an email. What might this organization do differently in planning for e-learning or using the Web 2.0? What are its competitors doing, for instance? Has there been an update? You are encouraged to work in teams on this report. When done, you will present an overview of the report to the class. Testimonials, graphs and trends of indicated growth, comparisons, and other data or handouts are welcome. You are also encouraged to directly contact the organization that developed the report or plan and receive additional product information (e.g., DVDs, brochures, white papers, technical reports, product comparison sheets, videotapes, company annual report, customer testimonies, data sheets, Web site information, etc.). Your evaluation, critique, extension and should be 4-6 single-spaced pages (excluding appendices). Post it to your Oncourse dropbox or bring to class.
Summary Report/Strategic Plan Grading (10 pts for each of the following dimensions)
1. Review of Plan or Document (clarity, related to class, organized, facts, data, relevant, style)
2. Relevant Resources and Digging (citations/refs, linkages to class concepts, extensive)

In this option, you help with a Wikibook related to emerging technologies. Two years ago, students from five universities designed a wikibook on “The Web 2.0 and Emerging Learning Technologies” (The WELT); see http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Web_2.0_and_Emerging_Learning_Technologies. If you write a unique chapter for the WELT, it should be a minimum of 2,000 words. A 2-3 page reflection paper on what you learned from this wikibook activity needs to be included. Attached to your reflection paper will be documentation of what you contributed to the wikibook, including your chapter (with highlights or special notations of your contribution), highlights to the chapters worked on, and perhaps even print outs of the wikibook chapter editing history.
Sample Fall of 2010 Wikibook chapter additions:
1. Hesham Alsarhan: Web 2.0 and Collaborative Learning: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Web_2.0_and_Emerging_Learning_Technologies/Learning_Theory
(Prezi presentation related to chapter: https://prezi.com/secure/3771064d8c53e36fca75de3bfb9b979da5bb522a/ )
2. Jia-Sheng (Jason) Lin: The Open Source and the Open Education Movement: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Web_2.0_and_Emerging_Learning_Technologies/The_Open_Source_and_Open_Education_Movement#Portals_for_learning
Wikibook Grading (50 Total Points or 10 pts each dimension):
1. Chapter and reflection paper relevance: Contribution is meaningful to class, we learn from it
2. Chapter and reflection paper coherence: flow, well organized, good layout, enjoyable to read
3. Chapter and reflection paper completeness: Sufficient coverage of info, extends topic and class
4. Overall chapter creativity: Original and distinctive ideas, insightful points, something unique in it such as a figure, model, graph, timeline, comparison chart, acronym, quote or set of quotes, etc.
5. Overall reflection paper insightfulness, depth of thought, flow, informational content, etc.
So you want to be cool? You want to be creative? In this option, you are to create a shared online video (e.g., YouTube) related to this class. You cannot be the only person in it. What does the Web 2.0 and participatory learning mean to you? Alternatively, you can design a YouTube video for someone else. You should post this video of at least 5 minutes in length. You will turn in a 2-3 page single-spaced summary reflection of your design. Your video and paper will be graded for: (1) insightfulness, creativity, and originality; (2) design and visual effects; (3) coherence and logical sequence; (4) completeness; (5) relevance of content.
YouTube Video Final Project Examples (from R685 Spring and fall of 2010):
a. Beginning: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9m3uoXnFMH8
I like options and challenges and I bet you do too! Instead of a regular old blog, in this option, you might experiment with a video blog. When done, I want you to write a paper wherein you reflect on why you selected your particular blog topic and associated videos. You might discuss the benefits of video plus text. Also comment on any feedback you have received. You might mention what you might do differently and where your efforts might be headed. Do you think that your topic was effective? Why or why not? You will turn in a 2-3 page single-spaced summary reflection of your design. Your blogging activities and associated reflection paper will be graded for: (1) insightfulness, creativity, and originality; (2) design and organization; (3) coherence and logical sequence; (4) completeness; (5) relevance of content.
Video Blogging Example:
Justin Whiting (video blogging): http://www.youtube.com/juswhiti#p/a/u/0/TtVYRnQ77I4
In this option, you are to create an educational application, activity, or use within Second Life or some other virtual or 3D world. Why did you create this activity? What is the purpose and potential? Who is the audience? How does it relate to this class? You will turn in a 2-3 page single-spaced summary reflection of your design. Your Second Life design and paper will be graded for: (1) insightfulness, creativity, and originality; (2) design and visual effects; (3) coherence and logical sequence; (4) completeness; (5) relevance of content.
In this option, you are to create at least 2 vodcasts (video podcasts) related to topics from this class of at least 8 minutes in length. I prefer that you create a series of vodcasts on a theme or a podcast show. In addition, you cannot be the only person in the podcasts. The topic or theme only needs to be related to this class. Be creative and unique. When done, I want you to write a paper wherein you reflect on why you selected that topic. Also comment on any feedback you have received. You might mention what you might do differently and where your efforts might be headed. Do you think that your topic was effective? Why or why not? What might you do differently if you were to do it over? You will turn in a 1-2 page single-spaced summary reflection of your design. Your vodcast show and paper will be graded for: (1) insightfulness, creativity, and originality; (2) design and visual effects; (3) coherence and logical sequence; (4) completeness; (5) relevance of content.
You might design your own final project or combine some of these together into something truly unique (i.e., a mash-up). Or you might volunteer to create a usable class product (e.g., an online glossary, a Web site for the class, a database of articles on different class themes, organize a class mini-conference or real conference symposium, review a key journal in the field for major themes or trends and share that research with the class, etc.) or you might demonstrate a Web 2.0 or e-learning tool to the class. Such a tool may have relevance in K-12, military, corporate, or higher education settings or perhaps in more informal settings such as a museum, zoo, or computer club. See the instructor about the possibilities of demonstrating a particularly interesting e-learning tool you have found. You might have other task option preferences. Or you might trade a task for a major problem-based learning project related to this class with a company, organization, or institution. You make the contact and find out what needs to be resolved and then get it approved by the instructor. It might be a Web 2.0 or distance learning evaluation project. It might involve the design of e-learning tools and resources. It might entail the creation of a strategic plan, white paper, or vision statement. Whatever the problem or task, it must be an authentic activity. You will present the final project at the end of the semester. The grading scheme will be project specific.

Class Sharing of Final Projects: Our final class session on December 5th will include presentations of final projects for the class. In addition, I will try to list these final projects in Oncourse. In a word, we will share. There are 20 points allocated for this week of final project sharing and celebration.
You can skip all the readings listed below, and, instead, read one chapter per week from both volumes of my most recent book,“The World is Open” and“The World is More Open” as well as the book prequel and postscript (see the World is Open book website: http://worldisopen.com/). If interested, just ask me for a copy. If you want to alternate between the book and the weekly articles, that is fine too; just let me know.
