Smaller Niches in Social Networking Support Micro-Learnings

Ross Mayfield pointed out that “Widgets and (Web Widget) are the battering rams that will fracture the sand castles of large social networks.” A Flickr widget brings people together around an object. A photo with an attached story can be more compelling to some than millions of MySpace pages plagued by bad design.

I am curious as to how widgets can help our learning environment. Does anyone have a good example on how widgets can be used in learning?

See an example of creating widgets.
