Connectivism: Learning as Network-Creation

George Siemens, elearnspace, Aug 11, 2005
Commentary by Stephen Downes

George Siemens offers another contribution to his copntinuing definition of connectivism. The article describes some basic properties of networks and then the process of forming connections. "Can learning be both an influence and be influenced in the network forming process?" He then looks at the creation of meaning in a network, from the perspective of latent semantic analysis. "Meaning is transferred in a rich, but messy process incorporating the content, the context of learner and resource creator, as well as the cognitions and emotions of the learner at the time of knowledge acquisition."
