Diffusion Theory & Instructional Technology - 0 views

  •  
    This paper discusses how the theories of innovation diffusion have been incorporated into the field of instructional technology.
  •  
    Saw this on a science feed and only scanned it so far. The paper is old, but it might be interesting - various fields are interested in how innovations spread through a community (e.g. agriculture) and considering those theories with respect to education might be interesting. Anyone seen anything similar in the past?

Adobe Connect Now - 0 views

  •  
    Adobe Connect web meeting app - available for free for up to three participants (including host - only one who needs to sign up). Participants simply go to the host's meeting room url (which is easy to remember) and can use webcams/audio, share screen/windows, type messages and meeting notes, use the whiteboard, exchange files.
  •  
    I have an account and tested it with Carl. For me - seemed to work well and could be a useful (and free) way of conducting, say, a tutorial with feedback for someone who couldn't physically be there for whatever reason. Anyone who wants to try, let me know and I'll invite you to the meeting room.

Louisiana State University Moves to Moodle - 0 views

    The main interesting thing here is that LSU had a public consultation for deciding on their CMS, thus there is much more information available than normal on how the decision was reached.

Amazon unveils Kindle DX e-reader (BBC News) - 0 views

  •  
    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.

    I think it might be worth continuing a little longer as it is, but then using the service for an open group/lists i.e. a new group - keep this one for ESD so we can be a little more open on here and more focused on ESD/interests of the people here. It isn't difficult to share/add links to other groups/lists. I was thinking of possibly placing all the annotated links on the academic practice part of our website on here in public lists. The RSS feeds david mentioned would be good for updated too.

    Also, one thing from the experience so far is that it seems to work better for me when there are enough additions so it doesn't die, but not too many (just right as goldilocks would say). Too many and you get a bit swamped and don't read though properly - I'd guess 5-10 ish a week(?). What do other people think?
