Colleges and Web 2.0

Kevin pointed this one out in Ars Technica, an article about an article from the Ed Techie..

Key quote...'universities act as aggregators: they form collections of students with similar interests, and put them in contact with relevant material and experts. Weller argues that the online communities fostered under the Web 2.0 umbrella perform a largely parallel function, in that they foster groups with common interest and link them to relevant materials."

This is why we need to ramp up faculty capability with these tools.
