Trends and Impacts of E-Learning 2.0

This is a video of Stephen Downes giving a presentation to the International Conference on Open Courseware and eLearning in Taipei, Taiwan, June 13, 2007. He has perhaps the best and simplest explanations of Web 2.0 and social networking that I have heard in a long time.

He also relates Web 2.0 and learning and the development of e-learning applications. His idea of learning "where you need it" is very appealing to me - it is learner-centred, and owned by the learner - it's all about engaged learners. Telephones as learning tools and mobile learning - cool..

I highly recommend this video as must see for anyone interested in learning, e-learning, and Web 2.0...
