    This is a TedTalk from 2006 featuring Richard Baraniuk discussing Connexions, his open-source, online education program. I found it interesting to hear the logic behind his platform, which has been in planning for 6.5 years. He addresses many benefits - publishing on demand books, saving money, customized and differentiated learning, interactive pages, etc. He also speaks to the issue of quality control of sharing information. While I watched this video, I thought to myself that it really is becoming a small world where everyone is connected, just like for this course. Even though online education and sharing is a great idea and is very prominent today, I couldn't help but wonder at what costs are its effects -> job loss.
