You can't do that in a classroom! - 0 views

  •  
    This is a great post and it's great that it comes from an academic. In our sessions we do often get bogged down in the "but it's never as good as face to face" debates.

  •  
    Prices etc. are still a problem though... (oh, and you can't get kindles over here - brit firm plastic logic bringing one out soon though. IMHO I think that in a couple year's time, when they hit ipod-like mass market (and are a lot cheaper) these could potentially bring a lot of change/possibilities in HE. Unless something else takes over by then of course...

    E-paper readers get that little bit closer to mass market. Amazon launches larger version of kindle - business and academia prime markets for larger (and annotating) readers given reports/papers/textbooks.
