Now this is a first, at least for me: a U.S. post-secondary institution, Iowa State University, has started an ongoing look at its technology initiatives in a regular talk show format called Talk About IT. This segment looks at videoconferencing, but there are several other interesting episodes. The point is to showcase what's happening at the university in a way that everyone on campus can easily understand. That's a lot better than sending out a long e-mail that nobody reads anyway. I'd love to see a Canadian school try something similar.
