Journal of e-Learning and Knowledge Society The Challenge of Open Education Eleonora Pantò, Anna Comas-Quinn Abstract The Nutty Professor In 2004, The Nutty Professor was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". Plot Professor Julius Kelp (Jerry Lewis), is a nerdy, unkempt, buck-toothed, introverted, accident prone, socially inept university professor whose experiments in the classroom laboratory are unsuccessful and humorously destructive. When a football-playing bully humiliates and assaults him, Kelp decides to "beef up" by joining a local gym. Kelp's failure to succeed in the gym prompts him to invent a serum that turns him into the handsome, extremely smooth, cool, and obnoxious girl-chasing hipster, Buddy Love.

New Report Reimagines Learning in a Networked Society A research report released today by the Connected Learning Research Network tackles the big issues in education and fundamentally reimagines what learning looks like in the 21st century. The Connected Learning Research Network – a group of nine interdisciplinary thinkers (including our own Katie Salen) – is focused on understanding the opportunities and challenges that arise for learning in today’s changing media ecology, and developing a new model of connected learning: learning that is socially-connected, interest-driven, and geared towards educational opportunity for all. In response to these trends, the document offers a new framework to expand the reach of meaningful and sustained learning.
Frederick Wiseman’s “At Berkeley,” or, Seeing Like an Administration Frederick Wiseman’s films often document the insipid, noxious operations of bureaucracies. This is certainly the case with High School, released in the auspicious year 1968. If At Berkeley can be read as a sequel to that earlier film, what becomes clear is that it is not only the character of educational institutions that has changed over the past fifty years—like the Fordist factory in the era of globalization, the factory-like public school has faded as well (although many schools have at the same time become increasingly prison-like)—but also the character of the director, who has become, notes one reviewer, “something of an institution himself.”

While that prospect remains fanciful, for now, new approaches to skills assessment show what the future could look like. Take Smarterer, a Boston-based start-up that offers 800 free online tests for people to prove their chops in areas ranging from C++ programming to speaking English for business or understanding Gothic architecture. And not all the assessments are about getting a job -- there are quizzes on punk rock history and how to use Twitter.
Titicut Follies The title of the film is taken from a talent show put on by the hospital's inmates, which was named after the Wampanoag word for the nearby Taunton River. Synopsis Titicut Follies portrays the existence of occupants of Bridgewater, some of them catatonic, holed up in unlit cells, and only periodically washed. It also depicts inmates/patients required to strip naked publicly, force feeding, and indifference and bullying on the part of many of the institution's staff.

Education By Christina Pazzanese, Harvard Staff Writer After centuries of relative torpor, technology breakthroughs have begun to reshape teaching and learning in ways that have prompted paradigm shifts around pedagogy, assessment, and scholarly research, and have upended assumptions of how and where learning takes place, the student-teacher dynamic, the functions of libraries and museums, and the changing role of scholars as creators and curators of knowledge. Michael Sandel, Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor of Government, teaches a popular interactive course, “Justice,” which is also an online course available across the globe. Kris Snibbe/Harvard Staff Photographer Riesman model of Education and Culture In April 1997 the Harvard University Gazette reported, "The journal Contemporary Sociology has named the best-selling sociology book ever... The Lonely Crowd (Yale University Press) by David Riesman, [with] Nathan Glazer, and Reuel Denney, which the journal says has sold some 1.4 million copies since it was published in 1950." Interestingly, if the web is anything to go by, it is the fact of its popularity and influence which is most remarked, rather than what it says. I once met Riesman when I was an undergraduate, and he was a visiting professor.
High School (1968 film) The film was released in October 1968 by Wiseman's distribution company, Zipporah Films. It was largely well received by the principal and board of education, who found it mostly accurate, but the principal, Mabel Haller, announced that she wanted the right to edit the film, since she felt parts of it were taken out of context. For example, one scene shows an English Literature class listening to records while students in the back row are sleeping. In fact, the desks in classroom were pushed together to make room for the film crew and the teacher, Mrs. Quipol Thousands of you have built polls to learn from and interact with the world, and I want to thank you now for your patronage, your feedback, and all the excitement that you have brought to my life. I owe you an explanation, so here it is: We’re not out of money, and we’re not out of passion—on the contrary, this journey has ended so that another one can begin. In July of 2012, I started building a new application with three other gentlemen, with the hopes of bringing a new level of simplicity, elegance, and usability to business-based education and training.
