I couldn't agree more with the author. Whether you agree or disagree with the authors assumptions this title makes you think and open your mind to more. Prior to reading this I hadn't thought much about connectivism but now I understand it's a simple part of life. Well written and eye opening.
The book is exactly what the author claims it is, an introduction to connectivism. The book shares the personal experience of the author as a participant in a free course (#CCK11), a MOOC, or Massive Open Online Course. Instead of "pontificating" about theory, the author does an excellent job of letting the reader experience what learning in a MOOC is like. The idea is to show, not to tell, to experience actively, not to talk passively.
It is therefore an excellent read for the reader, the researcher or the interested person (like me) who is not looking for a dissertation about connectivism, but rather an opportunity to compare and contrast the actual experience with other sources of information.
It is important to value such books as this one based on the positive contribution it makes to what we know about how people participate in a MOOC. I recommend this book highly to anyone who is truly interested in gaining insight into how people participate in a MOOC, and how it affects them. This personal narrative of an actual experience of a MOOC participant is a valuable resource, since it fills a gap in our knowledge about MOOC participants.
You might be pleasantly surprised by this interesting book.
* I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
If you're interested in the subject I definitely recommend going with this book because it explains with a lot of examples and detailed concepts.
I look forward to reading another book about this subject and author.
After reading this book, you will have the necessary knowledge about connectivism to obtain similar benefits.
It all depends on how hard you are willing to work.
Knowledge is power after all, so if the power only stays in our heads, without being applied consistently to our lives, it will be useless to you.
Give this book a try and learn from this great author! I borrowed this book and will apply what I have learned to my life on my personal journey!
