Toward Open Networked Learning Environments: An Ecological Approach to Learning Design in MOOCs

Abstract

This paper discusses design considerations of open networked learning environments from an ecological approach that assumes a learning ecosystem as open and adaptive that deploys technological affordances and adapts the roles of learners in creating their learning environments. From a learning design perspective, technology can help design learner-centered and distributed learning environments that allow learning and interaction occur beyond time and space barriers and across contexts. This paper presents a design framework of open networked learning ecology of connectivist MOOCs that position learners at the intersection of informal and formal learning situations where they are encouraged to be autonomous in forming their learning environments and learning experiences in the diversity of tools and resources and to be active in generating content and being involved in the flow of information and sharing knowledge.
