Learning 2.0

I can't believe it's been almost a month since the last entry. I've been promoting Twitter and now started experimenting with Ning. Twitter is getting known in Malaysia, although Facebook seems to be the more popular of the two, still. In any case, both can be used to support learning.

As part of a mobile learning initiative at the Open University Malaysia, we used twitter to archive all the SMSes sent out. The purpose is to enable those who were late in subscribing to the service a chance to view the SMSes they missed. To view, visit http://twitter.com/oumh1103.

It's also possible, that in the future, we will use Twitter in place of SMSes so that we're more cost effective but only after everyone understands how Twitter works and functions.

Learning 2.0 is still somewhat new among Malaysian educators. Nevertheless, there is a lot of interest whenever I share what I know about it and the possibilities in creating more excitement in learning. Related to this, I'd like to urge you to view the following set of slides created in 2006 but still very much relevant and useful today. Enjoy!
