Alright, cool stuff around the corner. Next week the Open and Free Online Course on Connectivism and Connective Knowledge will start. There are participants from all over the world, but very little from Asia or Africa (see map below)...

An introductory presentation can be seen here. If you're interested, please visit the course outline for weekly readings and discussion times. Pre-course activities are listed here. You will receive The Daily each morning (Mon-Fri) which will provide summary information on posts relating to this course, commentary, and additional learning resources. Even more info at the moodle forum, click on "Connectivism and Connective Knowledge".
I hope I will make sufficient time for this course. Although the road will be bumpy, I put much confidence in George Siemens and Stephen Downes. George has organized numerous free online conferences, which were very educative and interesting. Stephen's essays and ideas are usually very interesting as well. They have probably put together a great learning experience.
If you're in, have fun, if not, not.
