This is a page about Emerging MOONs.

(Massive Open Online Networks)

There are several examples:

The Global JAM in 2007, run by KPI

The CCK08 MOOC

Jay Cross'sNetworking Events

The question is:

What are the emerging properties of MOONs - these, and more to come, like CCK09 for instance?

And there are two papers on MOONs, at the Networked Learning Conference website:

The Ideals and Reality of Participating in a MOOC

and

Blogs and Forums as Communication and Learning Tools in a MOOC

There is also a related paper forthcoming, soon, on emergent learning, in IRRODL (a link will be posted here when it goes live).
