Antonio Fini, The International Review of Research in Open, Distance Learning, Nov 18, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

According to the abstract, "This paper focuses on the technological aspects of one MOOC, the Connectivism and Connective Knowledge (CCK08) course, in order to investigate lifelong learners' attitudes towards learning network technologies. The research framework is represented by three perspectives: (a) lifelong learning in relation to open education, with a focus on the effective use of learning tools; (b) the more recent personal knowledge management (PKM) skills approach; and (c) the usability of web-based learning tools." Good paper, with a comprehensive summary of the CCK08 course structure.
