CMC11, the MOOC, is ready for the public, although, it is still a work in progress. Lifelong learning is a work in progress ...  The journey of creating CMC11 has been difficult, exhilarating, frustrating, fun, enlightening, and a walk into the dark side of html coding.  It has been a time of stress and freedom ... and a great example of constructivist learning throughout the process.

This MOOC is an entry into the realm of open learning and an investigation of just what that means. Exchanging knowledge and understanding and building upon those elements are connectivist activities, and in the process each participant will be developing their own learning environment.  We will laugh, feel frustrated, become exhilarated and experience a range of emotions as we move through the processes and listen and watch our contributions as they are collected, remixed, revised and sent forward.  Our reflections will be rich and diverse.  It promises to be great fun and greatly rewarding. Invite your family, friends, neighbors and people you do not even know to join ...
