    • 1. Open, Online and Connectivist: Lessons from our cMOOCs Betty Hurley-Dasgupta October 29, 2013
    • 2. Open Learning- UNESCO Definition OPEN LEARNING - instructional systems in which many facets of the learning process are under the control of the learner. It attempts to deliver learning opportunities where, when, and how the learner needs them. http://www.unesco.org/education/lwf/doc/portfolio/definitions.htm 2
    • 3. “Open” Defined by David Wiley “By „open‟ it is generally meant that the resource is available at no cost to others for adaptation and reuse in different contexts.” http://scholar.google.com/citations?view_op=view_citation&hl=en&user=M47HR7IAAAAJ& citation_for_view=M47HR7IAAAAJ:mVmsd5A6BfQC 3
    • 4. What is Connectivism? • Principles of connectivism: • Learning and knowledge rests in diversity of opinions. • Learning is a process of connecting specialized nodes or information sources. • Capacity to know more is more critical than what is currently known • Nurturing and maintaining connections is needed to facilitate continual learning.
    • 5. What is Connectivism? (con’d) • Ability to see connections between fields, ideas, and concepts is a core skill. • Currency (accurate, up-to-date knowledge) is the intent of all connectivist learning activities. • Decision-making is itself a learning process. Choosing what to learn and the meaning of incoming information is seen through the lens of a shifting reality. While there is a right answer now, it may be wrong tomorrow due to alterations in the information climate affecting the decision.

    • 20. As these online universities gain traction, and start counting for actual college course credit, they‟ll most likely have enormous real-world impact. They‟ll help in getting jobs and creating business ideas. They might just live up to their hype. For millions of people around the globe with few resources, MOOCs may even be life-changing. A.J.
