Click or Brick Colleges
Zane Berge asks the question, "Will traditional, residential education in the 21st century be found only at a few elite institutions and be only for the wealthy who can afford to attend them?" He lingers on the idea that new technologies, when they are introduced, are usually used to do old things. More...

Re-Learning E-Learning
The author describes a report that "identifies three principles and five education consumer segments to guide e-Learning providers." Most of the article looks at the principles. Instead of creating coures, provides should create "bite-sized chunks". More...

Trade Winds
Much more interesting is this account of the use of wireless instant messaging in the classroom. In this case, the text chat was displayed on a large screen in front of the room. "A panel on Web services featuring Salesforce.com CEO Mark Benioff provoked the most talked-about moment of the conference – at Benioff’s expense.... We thought this (Benioff's point) was news, until Ross Mayfield, CEO of one of the Web’s leading blogging software providers, Socialtext, led an online chat charge showing that most of this was apparently untrue." The author does a nice job of tracing the phenomenon. More...

Groove demands most of your system's resources, it is a bandwidth hog, its interface is awkward and cumbersome, and it is missing some essential features, such as videos. More...

Eldred v. Ashcroft: How Artists and Creators Finally Got Their Due
One of the drawbacks of online publication for at least some academics is that their work gets a wide reading and is thus exposed to the scrutiny of the Blogosphere. This article, published in an academic journal (at a major university yet) is a case in point. I don't need to offer a criticism; this review tears it to shreds. More...
