Episode 02 – The Old and the YouTube

21 March, 20073 comments

In our second podcast, we revisit the debate over Wikipedia, including hearing from Mills about how Cambodians are using it (and whether you can find a WiFi signal in the jungle of Cambodia). Our feature story explores whether and how YouTube is useful in the classroom. Links for this week include a podcast on Byzantine rulers, the Documentation Center of Cambodia, and a tool for making timelines. And we make a solemn pledge not to discuss Vista for a long time.

Featuring: Dan Cohen, Mills Kelly, Tom Scheinfeldt

    Have any of the hosts of the show looked into doing what Northwestern University did with its copy of the Video Encyclopedia of the Twentieth Century? Here at Baruch, we’re exploring whether we can replicate what Northwestern did, which is essentially load all the videos into a server so the content can be streamed by students and faculty as individual clips.
