  • Hi Brian - thanks for the heads up. By a strange twist of fate, I was reading the year in review about the same time you were making the comment! Sounds like it was a vintage year, though I was struck how little China featured.

Learning 2.0 and OpenID

  1. 1. Learning 2.0 & OpenID Miles Metcalfe @mmetcalfe
  2. 2. The take-away If you are building a web application... And you anticipate learners amongst your customers Be an OpenID relying party.
  3. 3. Standards based, open source system for single sign-on across or within organisational boundaries. Sites can make informed authorisation decisions for Decentralised, light- individual access of weight protocol for protected online resources single sign-on and portable identity
  4. 4. OpenID in the wild Many “smaller” Web 2.0 services are OpenID relying parties. Notably, so too is Facebook. More “brand names” are OpenID identity providers.
  5. 5. Educational Institutions Educational institutions already collect and manage identity. Becoming an identity provider for them is trivial. Becoming a relying party is transformative.
  6. 6. Why is this important?
  7. 7. Thanks –
