I just saw this at George Siemen's blog: Connectivism: a learning theory for today's learner. He is going to be running a course with Stephen Downes which you can either pay to enroll in for credits, or attend free of charge for interest. You can sign up now for bi-weekly newsletters that will give you more information, as well as check out the course syllabus at the wiki.
I would recommend that midwives and health professionals have a look at this, especially if they are involved with education and e-learning. Not only will it teach you about 'how technology affects the way you learn, teach and live' but it will also show you a model for open access education.
