Title The Use of XHTTP as a More Effective and Efficient Way to Apply Knowledge: Transitioning from Core Knowledge to Knowledge Objects
Short Description Out of our concern about the hugeness of 'the web' we illustrate the construction of core knowledge via XHTTP to achieve knowledge simplicity
Longer Description Arising out of our involvement with the US IEEE LOM (Learning Object Metataging), our participation in constructing the US ALA (American Library Association) RDA (Resources and Descriptors Access), and over thirty years of transitioning lay descriptions of knowledge to operational definitions, we at MIT and CITS (Center for Information, Technology & Society) have successfully attained "Knowledge Simplicity."
Building on the work of Ross Ashby, Russell Ackoff and others, we describe how true knowledge objects can be constructed using extensions of HTTP, and contrast this to the current constructions at the XHTML/XML level which we find only increases knowledge noise.
And, to convey this simplicity we will present a series of demonstrations, expanding from a demo recently presented at the SITE/AACE (Society for Information Technology in Education) called 'What is the Common Ground between TCPK (Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge) and Learning Objects.'
