Terry Anderson, Virtual Canuck, Jun 10, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

If you're going to refer to the presence of the instructor as "the elephant in the room" then perhaps we ought to characterize instructivist pedagogies as "heavy", rather than "hard", and connectivist as "light" rather than "soft". Just saying. That said, I'm not sure I'm comfortable with the idea of the three as being in a range. After all, connectivism includes elements of instructivism as well as constructivism.
