Ray Schroeder interview discusses the endless semester

An interview with Ray Schroeder, director of the Office of Technology-Enhanced Learning, appeared in the October 15, 2007, issue of Distance Education Report, a Magna Publication. In the interview, titled "RSS and the Endless Semester," Schroeder explains how current and former students are increasingly subscribing to RSS feeds and how that practice can extend a semester's reach indefinitely. The text of the interview can be accessed, for a fee, at www.magnapubs.com/issues/magnapubs_der/11_20/news/600821-1.html.

Schroeder is also contributing a chapter on the topic to the forthcoming book Wired for Learning: An Educator’s Guide to Web 2.0, to be published in 2009 by Information Age Publishing.
