I decided to pick up a course on Learning in Digital Age, because I have already intuitively approached many of the topics covered by it:
- RSS subscriptions
- Personal Knowledge Bases (PKBs)
- Personal Wikis etc.
However, I feel that there is more to the craft that I stumbled into by chance.
What I really like about this course is the accent at the Open Source technologies and sources: I firmly believe that in the XXI century, there is no way of doing science the old way.
All the borders must be ignored, all the institutional limitation must be abolished, and a work of science should be considered as non-existent in case it is not available to a broad audience for free or – even better – under a permissive or libre licence.
