As part of a class project, Chandler Birch, Josh Stephens, and David Perkins of Taylor University created a YouTube music video detailing the virtues of switching from Blackboard to Moodle. They did a great job with the video production and presented some good reasons why Moodle is better:
Hi, everyone. I thought you might like to know that I've been producing a set of YouTube videos about pivotal moments in game history. The most recent one is about Metroid. You can also click here to see a list of all my videos so far. I'm up to #12 and have been pretty good about making a new one each week.
Please watch the videos and let me know what you think. I believe that I have come a long way since I first started with it!
Someone recently directed me to this awesome video from a Norwegian group named Datacore (there is a cool story behind the name on their webpage.) Anyway, the name of the song is "Computer Camp Love," and I'm sure there are at least a few of us out there who can really relate to this song on an almost visceral level. They (and I agree) characterize their music as a combination of DEVO and Talking Heads, with perhaps some American Pie and Napoleon Dynamite thrown in for video influences. Enjoy!
Michael Wesch, a cultural anthropology professor at Kansas State University, has submitted an absolutely incredible YouTube video concerning Web 2.0. He starts with the old HTML static pages and takes us through XML and beyond. This would make a terrific piece for discussion in any class about the web or new technologies like blogs, forums, wikis, social tagging, YouTube, flickr, and so on. Wesch is even hip to rhetoric. I love this thing!
