Downes, Stephen
Innovate: Journal of Online Education, v1 n3 Feb-Mar 2005
In this article, the author reviews James Farmer's "IncSub," short for "incorporated subversion," a Web site that combines many of the new approaches to educational technology. It is at heart a weblog, written by an Australian educational technologist; but in addition to the almost daily comments threading the tapestry of the new model of online learning, Farmer offers a mosaic of information and demonstrations of what the new technology looks like and how it works. Readers are invited not only to learn about, but to try for themselves some of the now widely popular open-source content management systems and learning support tools that provide alternatives to the centralized status quo. The IncSub home page features a sparse layout: a set of boxes, with no particular hierarchy or beginning, that invite the reader to simply explore. Return visitors soon learn, however, to click on the "incorporated subversion" box in the lower right-hand corner; this takes them directly to the incorporated subversion weblog, where Farmer discusses and digests the news of the day.
