Have just been listening to Ryan Jennings talk about his product, Panopto, which allows you to capture and publish every element of a presentation, and is now being used in a wide range of universities across the world.
In the context of his talk Ryan also mentioned the Khan Academy, a not-for-profit with the mission of providing a world-class education to anyone, anywhere – so I looked it up 🙂
The site contains a stunning array of user-paced resources available as an open-source project – predominantly in the maths and science area. If you’re looking for some engaging resources to use with students in a specific context, there’s bound to be something here of interest and value for you.

There is a good audio pod cast about Sal Khan here. http://www.radionz.co.nz/search?mode=results&queries_all_query=Sal+Khan
I really like these types of teacher created lectures. Easy to do with free software. I wish more teachers created this type of copyright free content. There is great scope for schools to post this stuff on thier websites for student revision.
The Khan material could also serve nicely as material for a remix/re-purpose of resources for maths in NZ, as discussed here: http://groups.google.co.nz/group/mle-reference-group/browse_thread/thread/15589ee232c25c2b/f249bd5aee20c758?lnk=gst&q=khan#f249bd5aee20c758
