Overview ? On sabbatical 2012-2013, I took a couple of open online courses? ? Which led to me helping to facilitate a couple of open online courses? ? And the benefits of online discussions and collaborations made me wonder?why don?t I open up my on-campus courses too? Connectivist (M)OOCs  (term introduced by Stephen Downes) ? Major focus is on developing connections between participants to promote learning from each other, including after the course is finished ? Instructors facilitate connections rather than acting as the main, centralized sources of knowledge ? Participants create their learning goals and decide their own paths through course ? Course is distributed in various places on the web (though often with a central hub of info)  See, e.g.   From Dave Cormier?s video on MOOCs: Online instruction for open educators online-instruction-for-open-educators/ ETMOOC (Jan-March 2013) Open Online Experience 2013-2014 (OOE13) ds106 Current ds106: ?headless?
