It was interesting to partake in the 8th EDEN Research Work Shop in Oxford last week. It seems that we still ponder about, research and experiment around more or less the same elements we pondered about, etc. 20 to 30 years ago. I was slightly surprised that so few were using various social media as part of a online classroom. I would have expected more lecturers using blogs, embedded YouTube videos and in combination with Wiki, Twitter and Paper.Li.
