Extreme Makeover from NCQ Talk

Hi everyone! Today's selection is a podcast from NCQ Talk. NCQ is short for a Nerd, a Canadian, and a Quaker - the 3 co-hosts of this series. The NCQ Talk podcast is about the intersection of technology and learning. See:

These podcasts are hosted by Kris Smith (the Nerd), Dan Balzer (the Canadian), and Susan Manning (from the Quaker State) - it is clear from listening to their podcasts that they have great chemistry between themselves - and they are very knowledgeable about Internet technologies and online learning. Their biographical sketches are linked from the NCQ Talk website. NCQ Talk is sponsored by Palegroove Studios in partnership with the Learning Times Network.

This podcast is #14 in their series and was first published on 2 May 2005. See:

In this episode, the co-hosts discuss an "Extreme Makeover" of an online course. They answer the questions "What if the NCQ Talk team came into your online course? What would they make over and why?" I think that their answers might surprise some listeners. And their answers certainly give us all lots to look for in our own online courses.

As always, the orange title above has a link to the mp3 file with the podcast, and you can subscribe to the RSS feed for "Burks' Selections" using the address on the orange XML icon in the right column on the page.

I hope you enjoy this podcast!

Best regards,
