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).
