Following on from last week’s blog post on big data, I had the great pleasure of meeting researcher and educator George Siemens recently. George is the Associate Director, Technology Enhanced Knowledge Research Institute at Athabasca University in Canada. He was also one of the first people ever to facilitate the use of MOOCs.
George has been immersed in learning and online networks for such a long time that he presents a different level of insight. He shared some of his insight when I asked him about the opportunities of big data on education.
