Adieu EdModo...

The other day I happened to see a notice on Twitter that EdModo was shutting down in about a month's time. I don't often post about EdTech on this blog, but I don't want to document my technology adieus on the other blog.  The timeline for the closure seems rather abrupt to me.  I am wondering if they were expecting another round of funding, or if they sold the company, or what.  A month

Review: 25 Years of Ed Tech

25 Years of Ed Tech by Martin Weller My rating: 5 of 5 stars Great overview of the past 25 years of Edtech.  I wish some more specifics were covered (specific platforms, especially defunct ones like Google Wave and other very specific Web 2.0 ones that are no longer around), but this was a good survey of the field. I really enjoyed listening to this in podcast

Adieu (old) Microsoft Education

I don't often write on this blog about educational services and edtech stuff, but since I've started the Adieu series here, I might as well post here.  Microsoft has offered free online training for educators. Of course, most of the training is on how you can use their products and services for teaching, so it's a bit infomercial-y at times, but it's good nevertheless.  The old site looked

Adieu Credly

A while back (5-6 years ago?)  digital badging for learning was the new hotness, and I was pretty excited about digital badge credentials.  Quite a few companies rushed to join this goldrush offering online platforms for credentialing, but it seems like the dust is settling.  With 2019 gone, one of these providers (and won't you know, it's the one I used for the classes I teach)

A convention is a convention...

I came across this last week.  I know it's portraying a more geeky convention (something I haven't been to in ages), but this is how I feel when I am at the vendor floor at an EdTech conference and I am looking to find colleagues ;-)

Adieu, LiveMocha

Well...seems like LiveMocha is going away.  The approach that I liked about LiveMocha was that it utilized social networking, and networks, for the purposes of language learning.  So, me - being a native speaker of Greek and English, I could earn points by teaching others those languages and  I could use those points to the in turn learn something new.  It allowed someone

Adieu Pearson LMS...

Well... that was... interesting to say the least! Just yesterday I was writing about Lore going away...it seems that Pearson is also getting out of the LMS business as well.  I noticed this on Pearson's OpenClass website: OpenClass will retire on January 1, 2018 On January 1, 2018, OpenClass will no longer be available to faculty, students, or administrators, and as of today, no new accounts

Lore no more! | Adieu Lore

Well, I guess the free LMS/social network Lore is going away soon!  I just got this email message the other day from the folks at Lore: I had joined Lore back in the days when it was called CourseKit.  The product, and the company, was created by a bunch of undergraduate students who wanted their face to face professors to use technology in the classroom - at least that's what the
