As you know, George Siemens and I are planning to offer a course on Connectivism at the University of Manitoba this fall. The course looks like it will be interesting, which we conclude from the fact that 1200 people have so far expressed interest. So last night George and I and a few other people chatted online at Ed Tech Talk about how we were approaching the course and what the implications are. My best eye-opening moment came when I responded to someone: 1200 people is not new to me - I deal with many mroe than that every day in this newsletter. 1200 is only a big deal if we are trying to offer a traditional class. But that is exactly what we are not doing.
