Survey Request

We have compiled a brief survey to better understand participants' self-regulation and level of use of personal learning environments in a massively open online course. The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete and will be administered again at the end of the course.
Final results will be shared so you can see for yourself how others responded. Thank you for participating!

Twitter Posts

Today we introduce another element of the distributed course, Twitter posts. Our aggregator scours all of Twitter for the last 24 hours looking for posts that mention #PLENK2010. These posts include contributions from course participants, but will also include discussion from people outside the course. The Twitter feed is an excellent place to find new resources, organize your own course group or discussion circle, or to schedule events.

Participants' Blogs

Today we introduce a new section of the newsletter. This section contains blog posts published in the feeds you contributed to the course. These feeds were harvested and those posts that contained the tag #PLENK2010 in the title or text were extracted and published here. If you have not yet submitted your RSS Feed, you can go to and do it there.

To view the entire blog post, click on the title of the post, and you'll be taken to the blog post itself. Alternatively, click on [Link] to proceed to the post without your click being counted. Don't panic if you don't see your blog post listed. There's always a rush of posts at the start of the course, so we haven't listed them all. Through the week we'll catch up with everybody's posts.

PLE = Outlet for Leadership Development
Michael, Przygoda = Adventure
How do leaders learn when they have so few peers in the workplace?Courtesy of elvis_payneMy friend Jill and I were talking yesterday about this new course PLENK2010 I've just joined. We are both involved in leadership development and our discussion quickly turned to the PLE and how it could be used for leadership development. It's intriguing to think of a structured PLE being "given" to a leader to help guide their own self-discovery learning process as a leader in the workplace. .... [Link] 2010-09-15T04:26:00

Clear challenge in learning: match or mis match between learner needs and educator support
Rita, Observations about learning, knowledge and technology
In 1991 Gerald Grow drew up his matrix of matches and mis-matches between learner stages and teacher styles and the first few days on #PLENK have confirmed to me that in any learning situation there is a need for a certain level of support to learners, also to participants in a course such as PLENK so they do not to feel that they are drowning in an overwhelming sea of information. I think that all four of us  facilitators are providing support in one way or another, in addition to .... [Link] 2010-09-15T02:02:00 (John), Personal Learning

Diagrams, exemplars, bootstrapping in #PLENK2010

Looking through some diagrams of PLEs at edtechpost has given me the impetus to create a diagram of my own, and the permission to really goof with it. Exemplars. To my mind, these diagrams illustrate what happens when a straightforward exercise is approached with a PLE attitude. Given the variety of diagrams, it looks like [...] [Link] 2010-09-14T22:34:22

First Thoughts on PLENK2010
lw, wrightoutofmind
This is my first experience in a PLE, and I'm looking forward to it. Seems natural to have a loose structure to facilitate web-wide interaction. This is how adults learn - at least at the moment - so students need to hone these skills. I'm hoping to learn some tips on how best to structure and facilitate this type of course for my students. I appreciated Dave Comier's description of the PLE he had done, especially the assessment piece. Facilitating the connection - among students,.... [Link] 2010-09-13T00:36:00
