It seems these pared down presentations are being utilized more and more in distance learning in conjunction with other, more interactive and/or self-directed activities to best fit the strengths and weaknesses of the web and other distance learning platforms for presenting material.
The 60 Second Lecture: From Jamie's Distance Learning Blog, a brief description of the concept and its benefits.
The 60 Second Lecture: From Punya Mishra's Web, another description of the concept and a longer discussion of its pro's and con's.
