So, today he is starting his "Introduction to Open Education" course! There are already over 20 participants, from all over the world, signed up.
David is using a wiki to manage his course, nothing else. he expects that participants use weblogs to work on their assignments. How about that? We don't need fancy virtual learning environments, with all those roles.... Blackboard, eat your heart out ( I am referring to their claim on a certain patent here ).
