Syndication-Centered Education

Here's one man's vision of what educational delivery predicated on syndicated web based content might look like:

"First day in the class students are provided an OPML file that provides the details for the lecturers for the semester, they will blog and provide course notes, presentations, thoughts and opinions via their blog, the students will receive content automatically via their RSS reader. At the end of each lecture the podcast is also sent out using the same process. If the lecturer needs to communicate about something out side of the normal course then the blog provides this mechanism. Let’s take this a step further, it does not need to be a blog in the tradition sense that we are using now, it could just be a portion of a LMS, but that is a topic for another discussion. Even internally corporate type courses can be delivered using a similar method, and here the process can go over a much longer time frame."
