“There is something rewarding about having an idea—owning it, being recognized for it. Even when we share, we attach identity to what we have created. In creating knowledge, we experience life, identity, hope. To contribute to the public space, to be recognized, to be a part of something bigger—these motivations drive us.”
George Siemens ,“Knowing Knowledge” (2006)

And the students know it.
