ECI831 begins

Seems that there’s some kinda impatience on the move; could not wait until Connectivism and Connective Knowledge 2009 starts next week – I joined “EC&I 831″ aka “Social Media & Open Education, offered by University of Regina.

I suddenly realized that I’ve got familiar with almost all technologies and services concerned, but what always needs deepening, is the proper understanding of philisophic and pedagogic aspects in networks and education technology.
The basic idea of ECI831 seems quite similar to Connectivism (even I’ve not participated a single session in CCK09); both synchronous and asynchronous, reading and writing, networking etc. Ok for me.
