Abstract

Mashups are an exciting new breed of Web-based data applications. Much like building a collage, a mashup is a unique assembly of individual things from more than one source into a single integrated whole. This paper examines the architecture and technologies that are currently used such as screen scraping, web feeds and web services and the three separate participants in the process. Mashups are usefully grouped by the type of media employed in the mashup, such as, mapping, video, news, etc. The issues of copyright and reuse are discussed and require understanding and evaluation by educators and others who will employ mashups. Educators who learn to effectively use mashups can make lessons and courses more exciting and could provide higher student interest and learning. As educators we have an obligation to carefully and critically assess these new technologies and their impact on learning.
