ghbrett's insight:

CloudU is just one of a growing number of technical or topic specific education programs integrating blended learning to fullfil unmet needs. Similar to traditional education they do distance learning by taking advantage of Web 2.0, Social Media, and interactive multimedia (e.g., audio & video podcasts, video conferencing, or video on demand) for classes and collaboration.
