Not exactly what I was looking for...database

It's been a very reading-heavy few weekends.  I've been trying to go through the massive amount of articles that I downloaded for my dissertation proposal so I can start writing the final section (the lit review) that's been on my mind since the summer.  I was looking for an article on one of the Sage databases, and I thought that an author & keyword combination would do its magic (especially

Music Rewind

This past week I was reminded of Darren Hayes and the song Pop!ular. Not sure what reminded me of it, definitely some random conversationalist at work, but I don't recall how exactly this fits in.  I think it was the white noise beat that someone had in the office.

Review: MOOCs and Educational Challenges around Asia and Europe

MOOCs and Educational Challenges around Asia and Europe by Bowon KimMy rating: 3 of 5 stars This was an interesting overview of MOOC (and some about OER) initiatives in selected Asian countries. It's interesting to see the role that MOOCs and OER take on in different contexts. I did find some issues with some chapters (naming things MOOCs which aren't really MOOCs), but I guess this was

Γαλλικά! Και πάλι γαλλικά...

Τελευταία χρονιά στο λύκειο, και τελευταία χρονιά στα γαλλικά! Πραγματικά, όταν είχα αρχίσει το λύκειο (grade 9) στην Αμερική δεν περίμενα πως θα συνέχιζα τα γαλλικά μετά τον δεύτερο χρόνο. Στο κάτω κάτω μόνο δύο χρόνια ήταν

Sev TNG: the Picard Maneuver

A jab at the first season uniforms ;-) I do wonder if Patrick Stewart did not have a problem with them, if the uniforms would have stayed the same.  More skants? :-)(original archive here)
