The World is an Open List: Especially 100+ Item Free Education Lists
Thursday, September 03, 2009
Yesterday, Powell's Books Blog people posted a guest blog post that I did for them. The title of the post is: The World is an Open List: Especially 100+ Item Free Education Lists. In it, I discuss how we are living in a world of lists. And this world of lists is not just detailing the world's best vacations, diet plans, sports figures, or movies of the year. Today such lists are common on the world of education; especially open education. We have lists of the top 100 OpenCourseWare sites or top 100 free websites for learning. There are also the top 100 podcasts from universities or top 100 educational blogs. And there are summary lists on ways to teach online as well as educational applications of tools like Twitter and Second Life.

So much is available for educators and students today! I also talk about free e-books and related e-book lists. In the end, I link it all back to my World is Open book. Enjoy my blog post to Powell's Books Blog. Powell's is very popular in places like Portland, Oregon. It is an independent bookstore there. I found it at the Portland International Airport back at the end of June.

    You have been busy and that is great, Curt. Cool that you've been occupied with a busy yet productive schedule.

    Yes, but remember that I avoid the B word. Well, starting this semester has not been easy. Radio interview yesterday and magazine interview today--these are fun to do.
