Brian Hughes is the Director of Social Media at Columbia University’s EdLab.  He and his colleagues see a coming shift toward online “learning networks” to fit diverse educational niches.  Two current EdLab projects, Vialogues and Pressible, are already gaining decent traction and paving the way for future innovations in the field.  I sat down with Brian this afternoon to discuss learning networks, the future of library services, and the evolution of education technology in general.
