Sclipo: Teach and learn with webcam

I’ve recently come across an interesting web 2.0 startup (actually the winner of the Best European Startup 2.0 of 2007 award) that makes education easier via the web. There are only a few medicine/science-related videos, but I hope many more to come:

Sclipo is a social network to share knowledge through video and webcam. The content is 100% user-generated and evaluated. What’s unique about Sclipo is the webcam system, called SclipoLive. It offers teachers two distinct advantages compared to how-to video repositories like VideoJug:

1. To teach personalized classes live (how-to videos are, in the end, not customizable one-fits-all micro-lessons).

2. To make money (experts can charge for a live class, whereas user would hardly pay to watch a video).

    Webcams will soon replace books and atlases, but we should strongly consider WHAT webcams we use. More about how to make a good choice here http://www.webcam-list.com/blog/2007/09/which-webcam-buying-guide.html
