The term "edupunk" started with a blog rant by Jim Groom, an instructional-technology specialist and adjunct professor at the University of Mary Washington, who was annoyed at commercial course-management systems and wanted to encourage professors to take a do-it-yourself approach to using the latest Web tools for their courses. But since we wrote about that rant last year, the term has been widely discussed in educational-technology circles - with some people excited about it, and others arguing that professors should use the tools provided by colleges rather than go off on their own to try to replicate them.
