The Ideals and Reality of Participating in a Massive Open Online Course

Open invitation:
I’ve managed to convince Jenny, John, and Roy to present a paper on their experience in the Connectivism and Connective Knowledge course online:
When: On Friday, July 2, at 11:00 am EST (Time zone conversations)
Where: Here in Elluminate

Topic: The Ideals and Reality of Participating in a Massive Open Online Course

This was a paper presented to the Networked Learning Conference 2010. The three authors, Jenny Mackness, Sui Fai John Mak and Roy Williams attended and met on the Connectivism and Connective Knowledge open online course in 2008, which came to be known as CCK08. The result of our meeting and learning, was a collaborative research project in which we explored learners’ experiences on the course and the implications of autonomy, diversity, openness and connectedness (the principles of connectivism) for learning and course design.
In this presentation we look forward to sharing this research and discussing emerging issues.

The paper is available here.
