Videos in courses

Could the Chronicle be awakening from its slumber of pre-1980′s view of technology? It appears as if some signs of life exist as it explores video in courses. Capturing videos of lectures is a useful idea…but the length of videos can be an issue. If a lecture is boring, a one hour video of a lecture will retain this character. The TedTalks approach to video makes more sense (now, all you have to do is convince Nobel Laureates to speak to your class).

    And all TED presenters, even Nobel Laureates, are limited to 18 minutes.
