How this Course Works

Connectivism & Connective Knowledge 2012 is an unusual course. It does not consist of a body of content you are supposed to remember. Rather, the learning in the course results from the activities you undertake, and will be different for each person.

In addition, this course is not conducted in a single place or environment. It is distributed across the web. We will provide some facilities. But we expect your activities to take place all over the internet. We will ask you to visit other people's web pages, and even to create some of your own.

PHP Bulletin Board for CCK12

Matt Bury writes:

I've been participating for the last two weeks in CCK12 and I've been missing the opportunity to have extended discussions about the webinars and connected articles and resources. I currently have an empty installation of PHPBB3 (popular open source bulletin board software) on my server and would like to offer it for exclusive use to participants on CCK12.

The URL is here: http://forum.matbury.com/

I think it would be an excellent place for co-learners to aggregate links to articles and resources, discuss them in an ordered and structured way. Of course, this doesn't prevent any participants from continuing with their reflective blogs and they'd also be able to post references to them on the forum.

If this sounds like a good idea to you and you'd like to support and recommend it, I'll make the appropriate changes (graphics and titles instead of my ugly mug) and set up the schedule and groups. User registration works on a moderated basis the same way as Change MOOC courses.

Volunteer moderators would also be very welcome!

An introduction
Anne-Marie Carey, Space for a mind overflowing.
Since I've begun to publicise the existance of this blog, I feel I had better make an introduction sooner rather than later. This blog has been created for a few purposes. Firstly, the space will allow me to participate in discussions generated by MOOCs. This year is going to be very busy as I attempt to follow a selection of the open online courses available, including #change11 and  #CCK12. I am even enjoying a foray into programming, thanks to Codecademy!&.... [Link] 2012-01-19T21:23:00.000-08:00 [Comment]

#cck12 | Why does everyone need to connect to everyone else
DinoCCK2012, Dino's #cck12 Blog
Started a new course today - Connectivism (whatever that is) and Connective Knowledge.Puzzled by the new cultural "norm" for people to feel the need to share all aspects of their personal lives and connect to each other in so many ways. What makes everyone think that they're "special" and worth "following"?4 seemingly simple tasks for this week have taken me nearly 2 hours to complete:Join a group in "Google Groups"Sign pu for a MOOC.Create a Diigo account and join another group.Start a ....
