Collaboration in Distance Education: International Case Studies by Louise MoranMy rating: 3 of 5 stars Even though it's a little dated at this point, it was an interesting view into cross-organizational collaborations in distance education. I started reading this thinking that it was more about person-to-person collaboration, not necessarily institution-to-institution initiatives.
Dissertation haunts you
From PhD comics from a week or so ago... One of the reasons I don't really want to go on vacation until my dissertation proposal (or heck, even until my data collection) is done.
Bugsy is back!
I don't fully get this comic strip, but the funny thing is that I recognized the character (Bugsy) even though I've only really played about 5 minutes of the game on someone else's console...around 20 years ago.
Review: Star Trek Volume 1
Star Trek Volume 1 by Steve MolnarMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Both stories in this volume are titled after TOS episodes...which not surprisingly were comic adaptations of classic TOS episodes. As I was reading this collection I was getting mental images of the actual episodes and I was wondering why. I a quick stop at Memory Alpha told me why! Overall this was not bad, but I think I was

Τα κοινωνικά δίκτυα αυτή την εβδομάδα μου θύμισαν άλλο ένα τραγούδι που είναι φέτος 20 χρονών… Λες να αρχίζω να ανησυχώ πως ξέρω παραπάνω “παλιά” τραγούδια παρά καινούργια;.
Η Αριστεία και η σημαία
Εδώ και κάνα δύο εβδομάδες γίνεται (ή γινόταν) ένα μπάχαλο επειδή πρώτον θέλουν ο σημαιοφόρος σε παρελάσεις να γίνετε με κλήρωση (στις τελευταίες τάξεις του δημοτικού), και θέλουν να καταργηθεί η έπαρση της σημαίας κάθε
How to get rid of Magikarp...
From last week's (or from two weeks ago?) Gamercat - how to get rid of your Magikarp... I do wonder if anyone is still playing that game (Magikarp jump). I found it dull and repetitive.
This week in Russia
It seems that it's been a while since I've listed to Russian music...so I guess I'll make August Russian-music month. This isn't a new song, but I'm still looking for updated russian charts. The song is Под звуки поцелуев, which translates to "the sound of kisses". Под звуки поцелуев by Ольга БузоваVerdict: My Russian is beyond rusty (falling part,
Sev TNG: Jazz humor...or not
This one didn't really resonate with me these days. Yes, it makes sense for Riker - given his interest in Jazz, but I think the alternate submission of " We could use it as a hood ornament for the Enterprize" was a little better.(original archive here)
Review: Teaching Crowds: Learning and Social Media
Teaching Crowds: Learning and Social Media by John DronMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I've had both a physical and a digital copy of this book for ages, but only really gone through select passages since I've had it. This time around I read through it cover to cover. It's interesting to read about sets, nets, groups, and collectives, and how they are instantiated using various technologies. I
