Knowledge, Learning, Community
I spent a good part of my morning with this newsletter (I spent the rest of it writing a spam trapper for my discussion list). What gets me about this newsletter - and it's one of many I see like this - is that it lists resource after resource after resource, none of which are learning objects in any real sense, all of which are reusable (that's why they're in the newsletter), and all of which disappear from sight almost as soon as they're created, because we don't have a simple system like RSS for learning resources. Or - well - we do have such a system, but the people who get big grants to look at this write large, complex Java reference implementations that nobody but themselves can implement. And the stuff just keeps getting written, and just keeps disappearing. Everyone - if you list learning resources of any sort, record them in an RSS feed (simple!) and submit your feed to DLORN.
