The community manager - every online program should have one

I came across this article recently on Community Managers.For the past year or so, ever since I created a Ning community for the Instructional Design program, and helped/consulted on the creation of a Community for the Applied Linguistics online program, I've been advocating for a community manager for all online programs.What I've noticed is that there is a void in-between semesters, especially for

13 reasons why Higher Ed is a mess

I came across this article on the Chronicle of Higher Ed recently. It was an interesting read. I can't really speak to the financial information they give because I am not involved in that area of university management. I did however have a couple of comments on other topics...Millions of workers have lost their jobs in recent months. But tenured professors are hard to fire. And some powerful faculty

Library-IT Mergers in Academic Institutions

I came across this NERCOMP presentation a week or so ago, but I only got to go through it the other day. All I can say is that I wish that I had been able to attend the NERCOMP conference and this presentation in general because it's a project that I've been involved with at my campus.No, my campus still maintains a separate library and IT group, however as a Management student I've worked on proposals

I was catching up on my Omniglot Blog unread posts and I came across this post asking people When is a language dead?

Cultural Perspectives

This semester I am taking two culture related courses.
