After listening to Graham Attwell's views (particularly at the FALT2009 Postdigital session in the Lass O'Gowrie) on how we should/could use Web 2.0 platforms and applications to extend education beyond the formal educational institutions and Terry Anderson's keynote presentation at the ALT-C 2009 conference in Manchester this year where he discussed the notion of the 'open scholar', this cloud has been created to collect together ideas and resources that can help define the role of the open scholar and how this can be translated into practical activity and engagement with 'open learners'.
