Take a free online course from George Siemens and Stephen Downes

George Siemens and Stephen Downes are going to attempt what some have called a MOOC - Massively Open Online Course - and so far some 1200 participants have signed up. The course will focus on the connectivist theory of learning and in some sense will be an experiment testing the theory itself.

Connectivism - LTCWiki
Connectivism and Connective Knowledge is a twelve week course that will explore the concepts of connectivism and connective knowledge and explore their application as a framework for theories of teaching and learning. It will outline a connectivist understanding of educational systems of the future. George Siemens and Stephen Downes – the two leading figures on connectivism and connective knowledge - will co-facilitate this innovative and timely course.
