EDUCAUSE Seminar: Objects, Trackback, RSS... maybe even the kitchen sink

FYI and for self (and colleague Brian Lamb) promotion... if you are attending EDUCAUSE 2004 (October in Denver), sign up now for our pre-conference seminar Decentralization of Learning Resources: Syndicating Learning Objects Using RSS, TrackBack, and Related Technologies:

Customized collections of learning objects from multiple repositories are achieved with simple, existing RSS protocols, creating access to a wider range of objects than a single source. This provides discipline-specific windows into collections, contextual wrappers via blogging tools, and a system for connecting objects and implementations via TrackBack.

This is going to be just about a completely hands-on (computer!) session where you will learn how to find objects via RSS, build your own dynamic feed collections, use weblogs to describe found objects, use Trackback to connect uses of objects to other resources, wax poetically on the social network that the blog community generates (and how that might be a lesson for learning objects).. and expect a wiki and other items thrown in to the mix.

You can expect to be doing small group activity, accessing real world but cheap/free/available technology tools, and a pair of sarcastic facilitators. Your will NOT see PowerPoint, droning lectures, or long diatribes about meta-data or definitions of learning objects.

If you missed our Small Technologies Loosely Joined session at NMC 2004.... well this will have some of that flavor, though it may be less wild and chaotic.

Operators are standing by....
