Distance Learning – Social Software’s Killer Ap?

Terry Anderson, Distance Learning Association of Australia, Nov 15, 2005
Commentary by Stephen Downes

It's funny. Terry Anderson describes distance learning as social software's killer app, while I describe social software as distance learning's killer app. Difference in perspective, I guess. Anyhow, this article begins with a short outline of Anderson's social presence theory (good reading if it's new to you) and an overview of social software. The bulk of the article then describes applications of social software in learning, wrapping up with Me2U, an application developed at Athabasca University.
