George Siemens Open Online Courses: PLN Environments and Networks at CMC11

George Siemens, YouTube, Sept 30, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

George Siemens looks at open online courses from the perspective of personal learning environments. Some interesting commentary about 'information foraging', the way we seek out information the same way we seek food. This leads to an extended discussion of the nature of data and the question of who owns data. What we are trying to do is preserve a person's ability to manage their own data, so we obtain the benefits of scalability, without losing the value of autonomy. Week 3 blog post.
