I ran across this site long ago, and could never get the RSS feed to display in my aggregator of choice, so had kind of forgotten about it. They just moved to a new site, and the RSS feed works fine for me now, so now I'll recommend it to you!
A Low Threshold Application "is a teaching/learning application of information technology that is reliable, accessible, easy to learn, non-intimidating and (incrementally) inexpensive. Each LTA has observable positive consequences, and contributes to important long term changes in teaching and/or learning. "... the potential user (teacher or learner) perceives an LTA as NOT challenging, not intimidating, not requiring a lot of additional work or new thinking. LTAs… are also 'low-threshold' in the sense of having low INCREMENTAL costs for purchase, training, support, and maintenance." (attribution)
So basically what we've got here are a slew of low-cost, easy-to-implement, technology-related things that you (yes, even you!) can use to impress your colleagues, students and supervisors. For instance, I recently noted the embedded librarians discussion that had been occurring on the OFFCAMP mailing list. Librarians getting themselves involved and inserted in course management systems (CMS). The most recent LTA shows how you (yes, even you!) can insert a custom RSS feed into a Blackboard or WebCT course shell. So if you wanted to start blogging to reach your distance students, but didn't know how you could get them to read your feed or your posts, now you can have your posts appear in one, two, or all of the Blackboard or WebCT courses in which you've gotten yourself involved! Nice. Oh, and it doesn't have to be your blog - you can create a custom feed, or borrow pretty much any feed you can find and have it display in the CMS.
This is a good site to watch. Or contribute to!
