“The rate at which organizations and individuals learn may well become the only sustainable competitive advantage.” What could be truer? In our increasingly competitive, global, fast-moving economy, companies that take learning seriously—or more accurately, the learning of its people seriously — are much better off than companies that don’t.And, such “learning organizations” stand in marked contrast to that other kind, which tend to base decision-making on tradition, history, bias, emotion, and perception rather than verifiable data. via It Takes More Than Brains to Create a Learning Organization.
Meet Oppia, Google’s New Open Source Project That Allows Anyone To Create An Interactive Learning Experience
“In other words, Oppia works to improve the interactivity of the learning process by assuming the role of a mentor or teacher who asks questions of the learner. Then, based on how the learner responds to those questions, the teacher decides how to proceed, which questions to ask, how to give feedback and so on. In describing Oppia, Google says that one can think of it as a “smart feedback system,” which is an attempt to begin automating how we “teach a person to fish” — to use its example.” http://www.downes.ca/post/61867/rd
