If you are interested in the individual differences of our activity level in PLENK2010, please read this. I’ll give you a rough estimate on this. I began to look at the participants list: who had logged in during last days and then I took a glimpse of the forum posts behind the name, how many pages they had written. I found that Chris Jobling had written on 43 pages ( our main reflector?)

Sensemaking is the process by which people give meaning to experience . While this process has been studied by other disciplines under other names for centuries, the term "sensemaking" has primarily marked three distinct but related research areas since the 1970s: Sensemaking was introduced to Human–computer interaction by PARC researchers Russell, Stefik, Pirolli and Card in 1993, to information science by Brenda Dervin , and organizational studies by Karl Weick . In information science the term is most often written as "sense-making."

This week I am in week five of an online course called PLENK , which I'm offering with three colleagues in the research community here in Canada. As we reach the midpoint of the course, enrollment has just passed 1500 student mark. The discussions are reasonably active, we're aggregating 227 student blogs, 1340 of them are reading the daily newsletter, and the tweet count has just passed 1701. We're not the first people in the world to offer an online course, of course.

The major newspaper groups and the Tory party will of course be deploying the usual – expensive – steam-age tools: opinion polls and focus groups. The cash-strapped Labour and Liberal Democrat parties may have to resort to cheaper techniques – inspecting the entrails of slaughtered goats, perhaps.
This course is a joint venture between the National Research Council of Canada (Institute for Information Technology, Learning and collaborative Technologies Group, PLE Project ), The Technology Enhanced Knowledge Research Institute at Athabasca University and the University of Prince Edward Island. Facilitators: George Siemens, TEKRI, Stephen Downes, NRC, Dave Cormier, UPEI, Rita Kop, NRC. You’ll find their bios here: Facilitator Bios Welcome to PLENK2010 2010, the course about thinking.
