Stephen DownesLecture presentation delivered to ICT advisory board meeting, Arab League Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization, Tunis, Tunisia.

In this presentation I outline the major influences leading to the development of MOOCs, including learning objects and open educational resources. I then describe the basis for the creation of our original connectivist MOOCs, describe the learning theory behind them, and review attribues of a number of cMOOCs over the years. Finally I develop the concept of the personal learning environment as it is being implemented in our LPSS program.
