Beth's Blog

Intresting post today on Beth's Blog about the first course at Harvard to be open to the public: CyberOne: Law in the Court of Public Opinion.
The course will be taught live and in-person at Harvard Law School, and then taught through live interactive sessions with remote students in Second Life. Course videos will also be licensed through Creative Commons and distributed to the general public online and through local television in Cambridge.

CyberOne will be "a course in persuasive, empathic argument in the Internet space." Bridging disciplines, CyberOne will look not just at legal arguments but at the ways different kinds of media can be used to shape arguments in what is sometimes the most important court of all - that of public opinion.
This caught my eye for a couple of reasons. The PodCamp party Friday night is at Harvard. The course title and the fact that it is open to the public makes it something I would look into.

Beth Kanter is an independent consultant specializing in curriculum development, training, assessment and evaluation to assist nonprofit organizations in effective technology use. She writes on these topics on her blog.

She writes about Khmer culture and technology at Cambodia4kids blog and maintains a web site with the same name that provides information for U.S. teachers and parents. Her "Typing To Learn Khmer" blog is where she practices her very basic Khmer language skills using Khmer Unicode. Her motivation to learn about Cambodia is to ensure that her two adopted Khmer children know about their homeland and celebrate their culture. She writes about the Cambodian Blogosphere for Global Voices Online, a project of the Berkman Center for Internet and Law at Harvard University.

This would be a good blog to add to your RSS Reader of choice.

It was great to meet you at podcamp today! Just getting around to thanking you for the link and nice write up - after my computer woes ... still recovering.
