“Social agents” –- the technologies that make it easy for us to “follow” and/or “share” with people we’re connected to online — help personalize our web experience and link up with those who share our interests.
In a blog post called “Socializing Learning Environments,” our CEO, Eric Shepherd, asks how we might extend the use of social agents to provide individualized learning resources. By adding the functions of “searching”, “finding” and “learning” to the existing capabilities of social agents, could we produce searches that bring appropriate resources to learners? And how would we ensure that those resources match up with a learner’s delivery platform? What role can assessments play in making all of this happen? If these and other questions about assessment and learning interest you, check out Eric’s blog.
