In this 18 minute Podcast Brian Kelly described his organisation, UKOLN, and his role within UKOLN. Brian, in response to a question on the current 'hot areas' he is involved with, outlined the potential of collaborative technoliogies, such as Blogs, Wikis, instant mesaging and Podcasts. Brian pointed out the benefits of a modular, as opposed to monolithic, approach to the support of elearning within institutions. Brian pointed out, however, that such an approach would have associated risks, and that there is a need to establish close links with central IT service departments.
