Wishing to experience for myself learning as it is presented through connectivism, I signed up for the change MOOC this year. Several things both alarm and intrigue me. Firstly there will be lots of content, too much in fact for me or indeed the facilitators to read, I will have to control my desire to grasp every detail! Secondly "This 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" OK so I can browse and follow my interests, I can "aggregate, remix, repurpose and feed forward" so far, so real life. I am intrigued because now I can see that I will be making my own way through a virtual conrfield, leaving the trampled corn as evidence of my passing by. I hope there will be clearings where I will meet and share with others to be sure that I haven't lost my way.
