Connectivism and connective knowledge, 2009

I just registered for the Connectivism and connective knowledge (CCK09) course that’s going to start in September.  I first came across it when I did the Mozilla open education course earlier this year and have been keeping an eye on it in the meantime.  It’s a massively open online course that so far has 1000+ registered participants, and is hosted by George Siemens and Steven Downes.

From the 2008 course outline, the Connectivism and connective knowledge course is a “…twelve week course that will explore the concepts of connectivism and connective knowledge and explore their application as a framework for theories of teaching and learning. It will outline a connectivist understanding of educational systems of the future.”

Here’s the syllabus for the 2008 course, and the Moodle outline.  If you register for the CCK09 course, let me know so that we can keep in touch.

  1. Hi Ruth. Thanks for adding that bit about the course not officially “ending”, I think it’s important to recognise that the connections made during the course don’t end after 12 weeks.

  2. CCK09 will be a combination of those enrolling for the first time and those who took CCK08. The course doesn’t really end unless you want it to because there’s so many online ways to stay connected and to continue sharing information after the twelve weeks ends.
