THE MOOC OF ONE: PERSONAL LEARNING TECHNOLOGIES

S. Downes

National Research Council Canada (CANADA)
While much attention has been paid in recent years to the massive numbers of students able to participate in open online learning, what is often overlooked is the capacity of individual learners to use open online learning to shape and design their own curriculum and perdagogy. This marks a significant transition from traditional online learning, which draws from the tradition of distance education, which is based in the idea of self-study using courses and programs designed by educators. This talk will examine how open online learning puts the control of learning into the hands of learners, how educators will adapt with new learner-driven pedagogies and curriculum design, and the technical infrastructure supporting personal learning in a community and cooperative environment.
