The vConnecting about Cupcakes and Pokemon!
Another docublog from virtually connecting from a few weeks ago, at OpenEd Berlin with Alec Couros. This one has the innovation of being the first "pop up" virtually connecting session. Enjoy!
Minerva? Why not Athena?!
The last virtually connecting session on my docublogging list. In this episode we speak to Steve Kossly of Minerva. This was from OLC Innovate 2016

Anatomy of a winter break
Happy winter break to everyone! Classes are over and I guess I am supposed to start working on my candidacy exam... This comic seems like it applies ;-)

A little more docublogging, this time from a virtually connecting session from the Wearables conference with George Siemens
Academic Conferences: No change here, go about your business
I've been thinking about Rebecca's post for the past two weeks, the one titled What Trump means for academic conferences. Now that the semester is over, and homework is off my plate (for another 35 days) it's time to commit some thoughts to (e)paper.
