Week 5: Groups and networks: patterns of organization
Patterns of social organization influence how information is exchanged. Groups, networks, and communities are just a few illustration of organization patterns. This week is a deeper dive into networks and groups. By the end of the week, you should get a better sense of why we've designed this course as a distributed network rather than a group-based structure such as a discussion forum.


Your first paper - your position on Connectivism - is due at the end of this week. More information on the paper is available here: http://connectivism12.wikispaces.com/ (scroll down to the assignment section).
