A video by Dr. Skip Ward about MOOC and #PLENK2010

Above is a video of one of the #PLENK2010 participants, Dr. Skip Ward, commented on my previous post about MOOC ( Massive Open Online Course).

As he expalins, how such an example of a learning experience is successful because of  forming a huge virtual community of learners. In fact, PLENK2010 brings together a diverse group of people wiht different aspects of expertise, tied together and participants come together to share their experiences and knowledge. It is grounded in Connectivist approach which sees learning as networked and connective.

Skip also created a Ning group " Moving Social Media into the Classroom"  .
