  • 1 Well, welcome back! This is Burks Oakley, and I’m speaking to you today from my home office in Champaign, Illinois. I’m currently working as a Research Professor in the Office of Technology-Enhanced Learning at the University of Illinois at Springfield. This slidecast is about academic continuity and Web 2.0 applications, and I’m creating this presentation not only to experiment with slidecast, but also to discuss how these two topics, academic continuity and Web 2.0, which on the surface seem very unrelated, actually tie together quite nicely.
