Since I work for a open distance learning university I’m really interested in any and all websites that deal with e-learning, mobile learning and the use of mobiles technology in education.

One of the gems I recently found is the ElearningLearning website and the blog that accompanies it. And each week the ElearningLearning Tony Karrer posts a list of upcoming events, featured sources and hot topics that all have to do with e-learning. Thanks to Tony I’ve found numerous websites and interesting posts that would have simply passed me by – we can’t read everything on the web!

This week’s post is especially useful as it includes quite a few Camtasia links and my section will be starting to experiment with Camtasia next month – so his timing was perfect!

Here’s a taste of Tony’s list (my comments are added in blue):
