Seems much is happening in the MOOC (i.e., Massive Open Online Course) world and in open education in general. The field is brimming with VC announcements and partnerships. As these appear, there are juicy debates about what the field is and what it should enable people to do. Of course, some of the debate is coming from those who have had a MOOC-like experience in the past and have concerns about how it is being portrayed today.

Given that the MOOC was targeted at new HE lecturers, this MOOC intentionally created a more supportive learning environment than is encountered in some traditional cMOOCs such as ChangeMOOC. Not only were ‘veterans’ encouraged to support participants new to MOOCs and lecturing in HE, but the three tutors and three technologists also had a greater ‘presence’ than is customary in some traditional cMOOCs, providing individual and whole group support, particularly for those participants being assessed, and by monitoring discussions and providing feedback on completed tasks.
Interesting article about the use of a MOOC in developing teachers for higher education.
The introduction of MOOCS to students all over the world has tremendously changed the face of higher education in the world. This is because it has provided a platform for university students to extend their learning beyond the lecture room to the comfort of their homes. Also MOOCS gives alternate study opportunities, meaning that students have access to an online university, thus they do not need to enrol in a traditional institution.

Ken's Key Takeaway:
I like the new term Personal Knowledge Network (PKN)
Here are some quotes directly from the attached article:
Knowledge ecologies are thus self-controlled and self-contained entities.
Knowledge ecologies lacked a shared repertoire and are thus open and distributed knowledge domains.
The result of participation in a knowledge ecology is a restructuring of one’s PKN, a reframing of one’s theories-in-use and an extension of one’s external network with new tacit and explicit knowledge nodes; i.e. people and information (external level)
Knowledge ecology is a more general concept than intensional networks.
In essence, a knowledge ecology is a complex adaptive system that emerges from the bottom-up connection of PKNs.
