RSS and Alexander Hayes

A few years ago, when LMS fever was still assailing the health of education, a few of us edubloggers started about RSS as a means of preventing the end of course “lock out” syndrome…and allowing new students to learn from the experiences of former students. RSS has, since that time, largely slipped from the discussion. We use it to aggregate content in iGoogle or Pageflakes. We use it to keep track of news and information. But we haven’t used it to transform the classroom experience and sustained access to content. Enter Alexander Hayes slideshare post on RSS as Glu. I personally see RSS less like glue and more like a flow, but that’s a secondary point. It’s an excellent overview of how we ought to be providing access to educational content. My only request: Alex, add narration and post as a video.
