Week 4: Overview

Hello everyone,

I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! This week  is all about discussing the Leading Edge of virtual world implementation in education.

We have a great week of disucssion planned. We start off with a reflection of our time in Wow on Monday. On Tuesday and Wednesday, we have virtual world heavywieghts :D Beverly G. McCarter and Lyr Lobo discussing all the wonderful things that they are doing that make us all feel like we need clones because we are falling behind. :D

Once Beverly and Lyr set your heads spinning, Kavon will lead the charge in discussing Open Courses and Connectivism. Friday is an intentional open slot at this time, we'll keep you posted. :D On Saturday, Johh Carter McKnight returns to redeem the VWBPE EveOnline rainchecks!

Whew!... and on Sunday, we will gather for reflection on the MOOC.
