Jon Hoem at Diablog :: has posted some comment on an interesting model for communication patterns in digital learning environments:
||Information produced by center
||Information produced by individual users
||Information produced by users as a collective
| Distribution controlled by center
| Distribution controlled by individual users
| Distribution controlled by users as a collective
The model is an extention of Bordewijk´s and Kaam´s media typology (presented in Jensen 1997) which answers two fundamental questions: Who controls the production of information? And, who controls the distribution of information?
There is food for thought here and he promises more to come on the topic.
