JUNE 25, 2014
MOOCs have taken the world of higher ed and corporate learning by the proverbial storm. When George Siemens , Dave Cormier and Stephen Downes came up with the concept in 2008, they had a vision of how a “learning design” based on Connectivism could change the face of learning and collaboration. The OER movement was the trigger for the MOOCs then. They are using various tools for PKM ( Personal Knowledge Management ) and taking onus of their own learning.
