What is the learner responsibility in open education?

Martin Weller, The Ed Techie, Jan 27, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Martin Weller gave a presentation to the CCK11 course yesterday (Elluminate recording) on open scholarship, prompting several participants to ask, "What's the connection to course content?" The week 2 topic in the course was Patterns of Connectivity. It's a good question, but Weller turns it around. "In an open, connected world of abundant content, perhaps the key skill is to learn how to make the connections between a wide range of free content and core principles." Also, " it demonstrates that old learning habits die hard. We are accustomed to signing up for a course, and whether it's free or not, being directed through it very explicitly."
