Abstract [en]

This essay has discussed and analyzed a draft for an idea about a network called EduSync. This idea is based on that teachers and students, attending and holding courses, all over the world should be able to find and interact with each other. EduSync is founded from a new learning theory, connectivism. Interviews, participation in a conference and two workshops have been used to gather information and different points of view concerning e-learning, for example possibilities and problems with this idea of a network.  A comparison of web communities and e-learning environments that exists today was also done. The gathered information from persons as well as literature resulted in a discussion concerning learning and what would or would not be possible with the creation of EduSync. Some suggestions of future studies, both practical and scientific, are also given in this essay.

Abstract [sv]

Den här uppsatsen har belyst och analyserat ett utkast till en nätverksidé som kallas EduSync. Denna idé grundar sig i att lärare och studenter i samtidiga liknande kurser världen över ska kunna hitta varandra och interagera. EduSync baseras på en ny lärteori, connectivism. Intervjuer och deltagande i konferenser samt workshops har använts för att samla information och olika synvinklar kring e-lärande och möjliga fördelar och nackdelar med denna nätverksidé. Det gjordes även en enklare jämförelse av idag existerande webbcommunities och lärmiljöer. Den insamlade informationen från personer och litteraturstudier resulterade i en diskussion angående lärande och vad som skulle vara möjligt eller inte att genomföra i skapandet av EduSync. Några förslag på framtida forskning, både praktisk och vetenskaplig, ges också i den här uppsatsen.
