E-Learning in the 1930s

I found an absolute delight on YouTube yesterday.

There's been a huge emphasis over the last few years on using alternative media, embedding blogs, wiki, videos and audio recordings into our teaching, especially when we're teaching online, to meet different learning styles and engage students. A lot of us are struggling to keep with "modern" technology, and I have heard a number of complaints from teachers that it is not their role to be making videos etc.

So I was thrilled and somewhat humbled to find a video about the mechanism of labour made at the University of Bristol in 1934, and I am thinking if they could do it back in those days, then we have no excuse in 2011 not to be thinking more creatively.
