The Poetry Archive

Various authors, Dec 02, 2005
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This site represents what online learning should aspire toward: it offers poetry, as read by the poets, for use in schools. What would make it better? MP3 recordings (instead of unusable Real Audio) that can be mashed with images and animations to add texture to videos. RSS feeds offering various types of listings, so people can get a poem a day, say, or list poems among other educational resources. But still, as they say, this is a good start. Via Ed-Tech Insider. Another good resource along the same lines is this archive of recordings.
