The MOOC becomes a Networked Textbook

Once again we are treated to ground-breaking ideas by Dave Cormier in his post entitled ‘MOOC as Networked Textbook and a look back at the feedbook’. He suggests the feedbook, a collection of feeds from experts in a field that create a ‘living textbook’, replace the traditional textbook that contains knowledge trapped in time.

My favourite quote:

Choosing and choosing well has always been a valuable literacy, but in the context of a world of knowledge abundance, choice is [has] slowly become the most important literacy.

In the end, and this is my bias showing, the community becomes the curriculum.

A full read of the post is strongly recommended.
