The Guide: a simple editor for re-ordering document sections

"The Guide evolved from the need to have an application that could organize information and ideas in a hierarchical, tree–like structure. Tree–based structures are frequently employed to manage information through a 'divide–and–conquer' approach, wherein each level of the tree represents a further level of specialization of the parent–level topic – the best example of this being a book.

The Guide is an application that allows you create documents ('guides') which inherently have a tree (which you can modify as you please) and text associated with each node of the tree. The text itself is of the rich–text variety, and the editor allows you to modify the style and formatting of the text (fonts, bold, italics etc).

For the initiated, the Guide is a two–pane extrinsic outliner. This concept is similar to mindmapping in some ways."

(Mahadevan R.)

[While this tool is designed for authoring help guides –it is also very useful for re–structuring large text documents. Once complete the newly re–structured document can be exported as an RDF document (which are MS–Word readable).
Note that there seems to be something wrong with the MSI version of the installer –the EXE version is OK however.]

Prezi: a tool that allows you to animate your presentation narrative

"Prezi lets you bring your ideas into one space and see how they relate, helping you and your audience connect. Zoom out to see the big picture and zoom in to see details – a bit like web–based maps that have changed how we navigate through map books."

(Prezi Inc., 2011)

[The tool provides a useful way of creating a 'presentation narrative'. In so doing it shifts the emphasis away from the 'content' of your presentation towards the sequential arrangement of ideas and their interrelationships.]

Connectivism: Learning as Network-Creation

"Networks are constantly forming. As a dynamic process, networks can aggregate into larger structures (a network of networks). Networks can also be deconstructed into smaller structures. For example, everyone has some type of personal learning network. When an individual works for an organization, they bring their network with them, combining as part of the larger network of the corporation. In the course of our daily lives, we move among numerous networks. We are constantly acting upon and being acted upon.

Recognizing that we are continually moving in and out of networks provides an important starting point for rethinking corporate and higher education. Instead of seeing the artificial construct of a program or course as the point of learning, we can view the process of 'living life' as a constant learning process. As we acquire new nodes, form new connections, aggregate into larger networks, or deconstruct into smaller structures, we are continually learning and adapting–interacting dynamically with the world around us."
