Using Google Wave as learning tool

Category: rubygiordano scalzo @ 2:53 pm

Google Wave is live since early October, but still it seems “empty”: it lacks functionalities, users and goals.

After Wave was launched, first Twitter-sphere was full of “I need a Wave account!!! then of “I’m on Wave, what can I do?”.
Maybe Google Wave is so new that is difficult to understand, or maybe is a big flop: only time will give us an answer.

Anyway, something is moving.
Satish Talim, of Rubylearning fame, just started an experimental course to JRuby using Google Wave.

Currently only two chapters have been published, and the course seems not much different from an email or web based course; neverthless I think it’s an interesting experiment and I’m sure it will be more interactive when the arguments will be less introductory.
