Researching open online courses

George Siemens

In fall, we (TEKRI, NRC, UPEI and possibly a few other organizations) are hosting an open online course. The course will run for about 35 weeks and credit options will be available for students in the Athabasca University MDE program and with Georgia Tech. Over the last decade, I’ve extolled the value of social/technological networks as a means of extending learning opportunities. Since 2007, numerous people have offered some version of open online courses.
