The Learning2.0 blog comments on Karrer’s blog regarding Learning2.0 and the continued debate. But what actually caught my eye and attention the most was his simple “use case”:
What if I entered into Google "change oil on my 1997 suburban" and it aggregated nanolearning objects for you entitled:
· "Disposing of your old oil" from your city's waste department
· "Working on cars safely" from the auto shop on the corner
· "Oil change procedures for the 1997 suburban" from Chevrolet
· A Website with recall notices for American cars
I was just recently introduced to a fabulous presentation on Identity2.0 and I think Id2.0 comes into play in this use case. Because in order to personalize for items like “city’s waste department” the system will need to “know who you are”. I also just read about the HR community working on HR-XML. Sounds like an RSS style wrapper for HR data to me…but I will need to look into it further.
I appreciate this post as a practical way of continuing the Learning2.0 and Reusable Learning Object discussion. Another thought is what if the actual file (or feed) that is the result of the search can become a learning object in and of itself as sort of a dynamic container for the Google-returned elements. Hmmm J
