The Vol. 9, No. 3 edition (2008) of the International Journal of Open and Distance Learning includes a very nice YouTube Video Editorial ~ Getting away from “talking heads” by the editor, Jon Baggaley, who extols the virtues of using video for what it does best. In his written editorial, Jon continues his recent criticism of the use of the Internet for education in developing countries, based on his experience of working in Asia for the last four years.
The whole edition in fact has a strong emphasis on online and distance education in non-Western countries, as can be seen from the index below:
