Haven’t had enough time to blog, the result of preoccupation with a large project.
Having mentioned Web 3.0 often in the past, I continue my research into it. Last evening, this particular slide share presentation about Web 3.0 and beyond popped into my inbox. Steve Wheeler at the University of Plymouth put it together.
Interesting to see that in the world of Web 3.0 , eLearning will actually transform from a content delivery and tracking mechanism. The rapid development of ontologies and taxonomies, the emergence of artificial intelligence allowing digital agents and assistance, and powerful mobile computing will probably mean the death of the LMS as we know it.
On the other hand, the proportion of content consumers to creators, which is currently heavily skewed towards consumption will even out with increasing number of creators. While it may seem unlikely at this time, I can envisage a future where ‘courseware’ as we know it won’t really exist. Instead, intelligent agents will gather and aggregate information from repositories and present those appropriately at the time of need.
It was also nice to see that some of the technologies that we’ve been experimenting with – like Augmented Reality and Virtuality – feature in the presentation. Take a look, great infographics and clear presentation.
