This is an open and free course offered in the connected MOOC style, and you should realize this is not a course about “Ken teaching you” and is highly centered on your learning. A glove-tap/hat-tip to Stephen Downes, George Siemens and Dave Cormier and others for their work on the original MOOCS.

A massive thank you to the work of Alan Levine, Brian Lamb, Jim Groom and too many others to list for their inspiration that led to my using this format.
