It influences connectivism where learning is successful and networks are created in different fields. 2004- The term connectivism was developed by George Siemens and Stephen Downes. 2008- The first MOOC was presented at the University of Manitoba, Canada and it consisted of 2200 learners. The History of MOOCs

2010 – Cormier made a video about MOOCs and it was uploaded onto YouTube. 2011 – MOOC prepares freshman college students for college requirements. 2012 – Harvard's first MOOC has 370000 students taking part in it.

My main field of interest is education. Branching from that would be my subject specialisations: Art, Design, Art and Culture and Life Orientation. Another branch off education would be swimming skills and water safety for babies and toddlers. My field of interest

Photography ( both film and digital). Drawing portraits ( all the little tricks and step by step procedures). How to be prepared as a subject specialist. Music (being able to read and understand music). The topics I would pursue in future MOOC experiences
