Hi Tom,

I'd be happy to talk generally on OK related points for open education and
the ambition within Australia to support it.

But I think open research might be a more interesting subject and that
might be covered much better by David Flanders, Fiona Tweedie or Steve

What says the peeps?


On Sunday, May 24, 2015, Tom Worthington <tom.worthington at tomw.net.au>

> I will be at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, 21 to 26 July 2015, to
> present a paper on open education at the 10th International Conference on
> Computer Science and Education (ICCSE 2015). Normally when speaking at a
> conference I also give free public talks for government, professionals and
> academics along the way. Anyone willing to host a talk between Canberra and
> Cambridge, please let me know.
> The actual paper is a bit academic:
> "Time-shifted Learning: Merging Synchronous and Asynchronous Techniques
> for E-Learning":
>    "E-learning techniques are usually classified into two broad
> categories: synchronous and synchronous. The core question of this research
> is how to combine synchronous and asynchronous techniques in e-learning
> software, so it can have a stronger connection with constructivist
> education. The benefits and drawbacks of existing e-learning software is
> looked at broadly. Three popular e-learning packages used at the Australian
> National University are investigated: Adobe Connect (synchronous), Moodle
> and edX (asynchronous). The results of a brief survey of edX students is
> reported. Using the results of this work a team of students at the ANU
> Research School of Computer Science is now implementing enhanced
> asynchronous software to be plugged into Moodle and other asynchronous
> e-learning packages."
