Digital Context

Let's visit another brief video from Professor Michael Wesch at Kansas State University. Actually, more than a year prior to the video we viewed, he put together this video that helps to describe the nature of Web 2.0 and how it is changing our lives. Delivery online best uses these technologies that are:
  • Engaging (active learning)
  • Building (drawing upon the collective wisdom of the class and beyond)
  • Interacting (enabling two-way communication)
  • Sustaining (through RSS or other technologies, these exist beyond the end of the term)

Semester without end is possible using Web technologies. Students who have completed the class can engage students in the class and can learn from new materials and discussions.
