Yves Simon's insight:
Individuals should be able to learn anywhere anytime. Unfortunately since we live in a world of conditioning (classical and instrumental) it is difficult to reach any significant educational goal without going to school. It doesn't mean that we have to eliminate school to make learning more open. School has a social role to play; But it has to use individual innate abilities for learning instead of the traditional methods of conditioning. If school shifts its focus on conditioning individuals will love learning and make it a lifelong activity.

Introduction to Environmental Policy and Planning

Introduction to Environmental Policy and Planning | Open Education 1 | Scoop.it
This course focuses on national environmental and energy policy-making; environmental ethics; the techniques of environmental analysis; and strategies for collaborative environmental decision-making. The primary objective of the course is to help students formulate a personal theory of environmental planning practice. The course is taught comparatively, with constant references to examples from around the world. It is required of all graduate students pursuing an environmental policy and planning specialization in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning at MIT. This course is the first subject in the Environmental Policy and Planning sequence. It reviews philosophical debates including growth vs. deep ecology, "command-and-control" vs. market-oriented approaches to regulation, and the importance of expertise vs. indigenous knowledge. Emphasis is placed on environmental planning techniques and strategies. Related topics include the management of sustainability, the politics of ecosystem management, environmental governance and the changing role of civil society, ecological economics, integrated assessment (combining environmental impact assessment (EIA) and risk assessment), joint fact finding in science-intensive policy disputes, environmental justice in poor communities of color, and environmental dispute resolution. Environmental Problem-Solving (Susskind et. al, 2017, Anthem Press), a video-enhanced eBook, provides students with full access to all the assigned readings, faculty commentary on the readings, and examples of the best student performance on course assignments in previous years.

What skills do online learners need?

Yves Simon's insight:
The skills that Stephen Downes talk about apply to every competent literate person. He calls these skills critical literacies.

It is being able to recognize patterns, similarities, and regularities. 
We observe these phenomena daily in life. We can say that life is made of patterns, similarities and regularities. The cycle of time itself is a kind of regularity.  Every day has a kind of regularity. It begins with the morning and ends with a night. Have we ever observed a kind of irregularity in the occurrence of a day where it starts with a night and ends with a morning?

 We observe patterns in the way a flock of birds flies. We observe patterns in our behavior, These are the result of conditioning. I used to see a man very often walking forwards and backwards while he is waiting for the public transportation.  Very often people talk in the streets on their cellular phones using different gestures, walking back and forth. Certain patterns are learned. Others are unconscious. In learned patterns, people learn to use gestures with their hands when they make a presentation in order to convince their audience

It is to be able to know the meaning and the context something is being used. It is to be able to use knowledge productively. It is being able to create and evaluate arguments and explanations. It is being able to understand change and the different ways it is happening.

Congratulations, Stephen Downes, the inventor of MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) and connectivism scholar for talking about the critical literacies in a very simple way!
