I previously wrote about Shelly Terrell and personal learning networks" and asks here what it takes for a group to self-organize. Kamanetz responds that there needs to be a common understanding of the goal - of course, this would be theoutcome of self-organization, not what makes it possible.33</p> <p>Course Provider PerspectiveSite</p> <p>StudentcontentCoursecontentSubscribedstudents</p> <p>Live online eventsEvent recordings</p> <p>The Students Perspective</p> <p>Site</p> <p>A range of different resources and services</p> <p>The design is based on putting the learner at the centreScott Wilson (left), Tim Hand (right)</p> <p>36</p> <p>5.
