A one-word response: Yes.

The much windier response: just as Kevin makes through his cartoons and others make through creative endeavors like the #etmooc lip dub (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cxwbdLMt_Bo), some of us make through the act of writing blog postings designed to be far more than personal reflections–they’re made to serve as stand-alone asynchronous learning opportunities available to our co-learners and others who may see them weeks, months, or even years after they are crafted.

As we’re seeing through the current Connected Courses MOOC module on co-learning (http://connectedcourses.net/thecourse/about-colearning/), we have countless ways to creatively and effectively engage in making; I would even suggest that participating in the “Case of #etmooc” panel discussion earlier this week was a form of making in that it produced a learning object (the archived recording at http://connectedcourses.net/event/unit-5-class-1-the-case-of-etmooc/?instance_id=171) that is stimulating plenty of conversation and will continue to be a learning resource for anyone interested in knowing how sustainable communities of learning can develop out of well-designed, well-facilitated connectivist MOOCs.

I don’t at all feel drawn to creating either-or dichotomies about what constitutes a “make” in learning; I’m much more engaged by examples of making that are integral to a learning experience and that produce tangible, rewarding results for learners and those whom they in turn will serve with what they have learned–as you have done with your latest post.

Thanks.
