Connecting now to the massive open online course on connectivism and connective knowledge. I’m looking forward to participating and seeing how the facilitators ‘manage’ the numbers – over 1800 is the estimate but there are only about 350 in the Moodle space for the course. There is a Google Maps page, a Twitter space, a Facebook group, but no way of knowing at a glance who all of my ‘classmates’ are that I’m supposed to be connecting with …. ah well I’m sure something like a class list will emerge from the network as the 12 weeks progress. Maybe that’s part of the adventure – that your connections to the class increase the more you blog, tweet, post on forums, facebook, etc., and you gradually get a more connected sense of the whole. Still, the facilitators must have the uber-list somewhere and it would be good to see it ?
