Introduction


This wiki provides information for the Second Life cohort of the Personal Learning Environments, Networks, and Knowledge (PLENK2010) Massively Open Online Course (MOOC) facilitated by George Siemens, Stephen Downes, Dave Cormier & Rita Kopp.

In-world Group


The group is called "PLENK2010 in SL". You can find it in Search. Join to receive group messages.
