Connectivism and Connective Knowledge is an open online course that over 12 weeks explores the concepts of connectivism and connective knowledge and explore their application as a framework for theories of teaching and learning. Participation is open to everyone and there are no fees or subscriptions required.

Connectivism and Connective Knowledge #CCK12 is a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) run by great facilitators. I really wish everyone involved in education, whatever their context, would experience a MOOC, in this case, an excellent one about the nature of connected learning.

The first of these courses was #CCK08 and you can read more about it from Stephen Downes. I tried to position Connectivism in context for educational leaders intent on developing new pedagogy in Australian schools, appropriate to the digital age, with this post for #CCK09.

The linear nature and structure of most course formal courses is problematic for many students (and teachers). What is a MOOC? by Dave Cormier will help you to understand how these courses work and how the learner is networked.

#CCK12 commences on the 23rd January. You can register and read more about how the course works here.
