v7.2 - moving along, a point increase at a time

Multilitteratus Incognitus

Pondering what to learn next 🤔

In defense of multi-author papers (and research)

Over the past few months I've been working with a dedicated group of people (whom I met at MobiMOOC this past April and May) on doing some collaborative research and publishing on the topics of mLearning and MOOCs (massive online open courses).  Our efforts have produced two papers (accepted) and we're working on several ideas which are on the table now [after a well deserved break!]This has me

If you build it...

A famous movie line goes as follows "if you build it they will come." My experience has taught me, as far as educational technology goes anyway, that if you build it they might or might not come. It just depends on their needs. Sometimes the problem is that students, and the faculty that teach them, don't know their needs and quite a lot of times he tools used transform their practices so much that

Are tests biased?

I saw this the other day and it was hilarious! Yes, it's the onion (so don't take it seriously!) but there is a smidgeon of truth in the story (if you know what you are looking for) which makes it really really funny :-)In The Know: Are Tests Biased Against Students Who Don't Give A Shit?

EduMOOC is almost over

Another MOOC is almost in the can (to borrow terminology from TWiT).  I have to say that even though I was really interested in this MOOC, eduMOOC that is, I really have a hard time finding something that really made it stand out. This was my fourth MOOC this year and I can easily say that MobiMOOC and CCK11 were the two top MOOCs.  LAK11 was good, but it was way, way, too compressed for

Quack! (If it looks like a duck...)

I was just about to give up on eduMOOC when this thread was started (or rather evolved from a previous thread) about what is an isn't a MOOC.  A Similar discussion came up on the Wikieducator list for eduMOOC.  A MOOC is a Massive Online Open Course, or so says the acronym. The concept of a MOOC was articulated by Cormier and Siemens (2010) in Educause (free read). The words Massive, Online

CT2011 Sessions attended part II

Here's the final word, at least from me, on sessions that I attended at CT2011 this past weekThe first was the Google talk. You know, for all the hype about the limited audience and such, the talk was really about where Google is going; no specifics, and no marketing talk either, so it was all a bunch of ether as far as I am concerned. Google doesn't confirm or deny that they are working on an LMS,

Sessions of Interest, but that I couldn't go to

Part ][ of my reportage back from Campus Technology 2011 - the sessions that I couldn't go to but seemed very interesting.  To say that there was a lot of stuff of interest at Campus Tech would be an understatement. The following are sessions that I would have liked to have gone to but didn't have the opportunity to attend because they conflicted with other sessions I wanted to go to.iPads: Applications

mLearning at Campus Technology 2011

This past week I spent a few days at the Campus Technology conference and Expo (incidentally it was also collocated with the AAEEBL ePortfolio conference) and it was quite illuminating! I wanted to spend some more time with ePortfolios, but I ended up spending most of my time in eLearning (and oddly enough Rubrics, but more on those on another post).Three sessions I went to  dealt with mLearning:Engaging
