Does Wikipedia have a place in academic inquiry?

I had an amazing high-energy day presenting to an incredible team of 60+ e-course developers at Alabama A&M yesterday. The conversations and collaborations started yesterday are going to lift our kite and get us into the Cloud! (Pun intended!)

In my presentation on Learning Object Repositories (LORs) we talked about Wikipedia and its relevance in academia. I also talked about and its potential as a great resource for videos one could use in courses in support of learning objectives (or simply enjoy on a Sunday afternoon!). I invite you to spend just a few minutes watching this video TED talk by Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia, and then to join our upcoming workshops to discuss your thoughts.

What an inspiring day!
