Following on from Neil’s post about pipes, there’s been a bit of discussion about the potential of pipes in teaching and learning in the EC SIG discussion list. David Davies (Warwick University) has pointed to a couple of pipes which are linked to JORUM
http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/bItJQC7D2xGvFoY000qv4w – this pipe searches a sub-set of JORUM.
http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/_nxRZz7D2xGGvKQPqGIyXQ – this pipe searches aggregated JORUM & Intute feeds.
I guess the downside of these are you need to be logged in to preview and download resources. But it shows that the technology has potential for educational applications.
