Somewhere Between a Course and a Community
A Twinterview with Alec Couros
- Last Friday, January 11, 2013, I asked Alec Couros to join me for an hour-long Twinterview. It was the weekend before the launch of #ETMOOC, his brainchild, and I wanted to get some context and history for his digital work before he began another connectivist adventure. Our conversation roamed from his first experiences in the cMOOC (even pre-MOOC) community, academic influences on his “open thinking” philosophy, reflections on publication and tenure, and his motivation to organize #ETMOOC.
We began by talking about his early experiments in connectivist learning.
