Distance Learning 2.0 meets Web 2.0

Three great sites that will help you with your distance learning objectives.

Tokbox: Add up to 20 people to your conference. The best part is they dont have to have a tokbox account. Simply send them the url of your conference and they can join up. Tokbox also has a twitter button that will send the link twitter friends so they can join up too.

Boostcam: Instant / disposable video conferencing. No username and no password required. Very simple to use. Would be great for people who are a little scared to connect for the first time.

FileinaFlash: Send files over the internet by just sending out the url. No username or password required. Most email services will not let you send a file over 20 megabites so if your in a pinch use this to send large files.

Your blog was so great, it is definitely useful for distance learning, by the way i have idea for this, KCTM the distance education study center offers IGNOU University admissions and learning programs in Mumbai and Pune.
