In Kropf's viewpoint connectivism is arguing for the inclusion of engaging interactive online materials to drive learning and instruction.  Kropf points to a number of examples of student engagement including the use of podcasts, Second Life, and mobile learning.  One such example illustrates the use of Second Life in an MBA program to improve 'teamwork efforts and experiences with commerce".  Connectivist instructional design will hopefully continue to elevate the discourse and utility of online materials in education.

* Connectivism
