So last week or so, Google announced a new web authoring tool called a Knol (short for Knowledge)... the idea is that it's a way of publishing more authoritative articles than a blog... similar to a wiki, but with more control over who edits it as well as more control over copyrights. Here are the links to it:

This new tool definitely has some interesting implications, both for us as professionals and for our students. I've already been thinking about possibilities for articles, and I think it could be really interesting to use with our students. I think this could bear at least a brief discussion on the 11th if there is time. :)

This could be yet another useful Web 2.0 tool for all of us. Imagine challenging students to post expert articles, very cool.
