On less being more

I have recently posted on three topics which tie nicely together in this "simply brilliant" graph by Indexed: visualization, humor, and the paring down of information to it's essentials to support learning.

On Needles and Haystacks and Such


A great summary of these topics, practicing what it preaches. Thank you Jessica Hagy.

del.icio.us Tidbits: 60 Second Lecture

Here is the periodic sampling from my del.icio.us favorites list. This time I chose the tag "60 Second Lecture."

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.

SAS 60-Second Lecture: Susan Schneider - "The Fundamental Nature of Consciousness": From Odeo, an example of a 60 Second Lecture.
