The practical implementation of connectivism is the massive open online course, or MOOC.

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I did a talk just downstairs on open content. This addresses the specific question of assessment in open learning and in informal learning. Is open online learning or the MOOC, the massive open online course, or informal learning in general doing the sort of thing that we need? Nonetheless, MOOCs and open online learning generally are shifting the definition of education away from its historical roots to a skills based, instrumentally defined enterprise ??
