Stephen and George running Connectivism

Stephen Downes and George Siemans, long known for their support of the idea of open education and personal learning environments (PLEs) are offering a course on Connectivism, through the University of Manitoba

It looks like they are using a wide range of online tools for the course (perfect, given the topic) and hoping that they can be “guides on the side” for what will become a course where students take over the discussion and generation of content. Nice!
