Various authors, Website, Oct 13, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

We're beginning to see what was predicted in the early days of online learning, an increasing (and increasingly expensive) use of animation to explain difficult concepts or help students explore new worlds. The Forbidden City is a $3 million project by IBM. On the less expensive front, there is this animation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. On another site, we have Amazon's Mechanical Turk being used to generate instant survey responses to moral survey questions. There's also a new gaming system being used to teach math in New York. And finally, a clickable Slidehare primer on the subprime crisis (language warning).
