Semester without End

If we use RSS-enabled technologies in our classes and students are subscribe to them, the door is then open to continue to deliver updated course materials to students after they have completed the course and even after they have graduated. This then creates an extended community of learners - all of whom either are in the class, or have completed the class. The extended community can then post comments and add insights to the materials shared with the current students. This little concept can result in an important change in the nature of continuing education.

A paper on the topic is found in the Distance Teaching and Learning conference archives:
