Learning 2.0, My Introduction to the The Connectivisim and Connective Knowledge CCK08 Online Course

During the next weeks I will blogging about my participation in the Connectivism and Connective Knowledge free online course, delivered in partnership with the University Manitoba Learning Technologies Centre This will be a great example of how to teach and manage a global MOOC – Massive Open Online Course, using several web 2.0 tools.

Connectivism and Connective Knowledge is a twelve week course that will explore the concepts of connectivism and connective knowledge and explore their application as a framework for theories of teaching and learning. It will outline a connectivist understanding of educational systems of the future. This course will help participants make sense of the transformative impact of technology in teaching and learning over the last decade.

Through out this “course” participants will use a variety of technologies. For example, participants will use blogs, Second Life, Page Flakes, attend UStream sessions, attend Elluminate sessions, participate in discussions in Moodle forums, and so on. Additional technologies will be introduced as is required to attend to concerns or opportunities arising over the next 12 weeks.
George Siemens and Stephen Downes will co-facilitate this online course.
