I enjoyed the video, but the lack of captioning might hinder its use by instructors in the United States. As I am not fully versed in the Australian laws and regulations regarding the need for captioning, this might not be an issue for the contributor.

Case study explains how flickr sites were used to share and critique images online. Overcoming the fear of the technology enabled the faculty member to open up a new way of sharing and increased the amount of feedback on the images. Other advantages include lessening environmental impact by students using chemicals to print their images and saving students money because they don't have to purchase paper and chemicals for making images.

The presentation in the use of Flickr as an online classroom was very inspiring!  The ideas shared could be applied to other visual arts.
