for EC&I 831: Social Media & Open Education, Alec Couros, University of Regina, Online, via Elluminate, Seminar, Nov 09, 2011.

In this presentation I revisit the 'role of the educator' discussion I offered last year for the same course, offering a point of view stressing a new approach to learning, and drawing out the consequences of that in a series of new roles for educators, leading to the conclusion that the role of the educator itself will be unbundled in the world of online learning.
