And so it begins: Video and Creation of Content


I got a note in my Mac feeds this morning about Veoh.

Veoh Networks today made available more than 3,000 videos for download and transfer to Apple’s latest iPod. Veoh allows anyone with a computer and an Internet connection to broadcast their own TV show, or channel of shows, in full-screen television quality. Individuals and companies are broadcasting compelling content — from original cartoons, like Superman and Popeye, to comedies like The Three Stooges, feature-length films, and more than 10,000 user-produced videos.

10,000 user-produced videos! This is coming on fast, dear readers. Are we ready for the users that might look to us to help them develop content? Can we give them a place to do so?

Jenny sends an email called “HOT” that points to this:

Teaching 2.0

Teaching 1.0–information retrieval
Teaching 2.0–information creation

Huge libraries of video, some created by just plain folks. A valued voice for educators and the future of teaching ponders “information creation.” Two things….synchronicity. This should not be ignored.
