This may come as a surprise, but every learner is different. As such, every learner will deal with the "constant change" of technology and the integration of social media in a different way. This course is not "going" anywhere - and I will be on twitter for awhile. So go through each day at your own pace. The goal is to take what you need out of this course, and to come back to it when you need resources and support. That's what Open Learning is all about!

Don't worry, it's just an introduction, we will not be getting into all the examples in the video. The objective of the video is to give you examples of why you would consider an open classroom.
