Vint Cerf Guest Lecture at an ISOC Next Generation Leaders Class showcases the evolving nature of e-Learning ... Social e-Learning

On August 2, 2012, Father of the Internet, Internet Pioneer and member of the +Internet Hall Of Fame,Vint Cerf shared his thoughts with Internet Policy & Governance e-Learning students. 

+vint cerf spent an hour answering questions and interacting with the participants of the +Internet Society Next Generation Leaders e-Learning Programme. Among the wide range of topics covered:

- Net Neutrality
- Search Neutrality
- Privacy
- Balancing his work as Chief Internet Evangelist at +Google, an Internet Standards and Protocols Engineering Expert and his Public Interest efforts as an Internet Freedom Fighter in demand all over the world
- the Internet of Things
- the #ITU   #WCIT2012  and;
- the Interplanetary Internet

In addition to revealing some astonishingly interesting insight from Mr. Cerf, in response to the incisive questions posed by the ISOC NGL English B Class, the Session also showcased the evolving nature of e-Learning, moving to what I term, "Social e-Learning". Social e-Learning combines advanced, tried and tested LMS technology based on Open Source principles, such as that used by the DiploFoundation, with popular and rapidly morphing Social Media applications - in this case the Google+ Hangouts on Air application.

Combining these paradigms is not as difficult as you might first think, and the benefits of increased engagement, accessibility, and ex post facto distribution (and persistence) cannot be argued with.

Thanks Tracy for sharing. The session with Vint Cerf was excellent - thanks to you and all those involved in its organisation.

Diplo's multimedia coordinator, Arvin Kamberi, also shares his perspectives. His take is from a technical angle, in which he discusses the 'Social e-Learning' tools used. Have a look: http://www.diplomacy.edu/blog/how-we-%E2%80%98hangout%E2%80%99-goog...
