1: REN møter i 2009

Vi har fastsatt datoer til medlemsmøter og studieturen i 2009, så vi oppfordrer alle til å merke disse av i kalenderen allerede nå. Vi tar selvfølgelig også i mot tips til innlegg, form og innhold. Vi har satt opp tentative titler ut fra diskusjoner og innspill.

11. februar             - The future of LMS
1. april                   - Workshop – Læring 2.0
27. mai                   - Best of e-learning
16. September         - Læringsstiler og læringsmetoder ………… og e-læring
12. – 15. oktober     - Studietur (vi jobber med Boston eller New York)
18. november          - Spill og læring, andre læringsarenaer som eks.
                                Nintendo DS

Mer informasjon kommer senere.

På det første møtet, 11. februar, ønsker vi å ta opp noen diskusjoner vedr.fremtiden og LMS, som LMS eller ikke, hva er alternativene. Som vi husker fra studieturen benyttet ikke Apple LMS, men brukte I-Tunes som bibliotek for sine e-læringsprogrammer. Hva gjør mer bruk av web 2.0 verktøy for utfordringer til et LMS og hvordan påvirker open source etablerte LMS.

Vi jobber for å få et variert panel av innlegg, hvor vi ser på ulike tilnærminger og behov og hvor vi skal legge opp til en god dialog.
 

2: The November 2008 issue of Virtual Worlds Viewpoints for
Virtual Worlds @ Work (VWW) Linden Lab and Rivers Run Red Team on "Immersive Workspaces
"

The Virtual Worlds Technology Map highlights the increased corporate use of Second Life as a key issue for virtual worlds. Second Life creator, Linden Lab, is teaming with virtual-worlds–development agency Rivers Run Red to offer "Immersive Workspaces"—an attempt to repackage Second Life for the enterprise market, complete with Web interface and improved security. This Viewpoints provides an assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the new product.
