Monday morning reading list

Here are a few fascinating or highly useful articles I came across in the last few days.

"Educhaos: Disruptive technologies." Are you disruptive? This article from the Australian Flexible Learning Community discusses what author Marie Jasinski calls "educhaos" and disruptive technology in education. Also see this page on the Introducing Disruptive Technology to Learners Symposium. (Thanks to SmartMobs for these items.)

"Productivity in the Service Economy." Usability guru Jakob Nielsen discusses how improving usability, both online and in workflow, can improve U.S. worker productivity and perhaps save jobs from being outsourced to other countries.

"PowerPoint to Flash conversion tools." Robin Good offers this article on making your content more "easily accessible, ubiquitous and easily distributable." He provides reasons for conversion and then profiles 20 tools.
