Is there any chance of granting access to the resources mentioned in the videos to people who couldn't attend the webinars. I assume that you send the link to the Bb collaborate recording to those who attended so they'll see the chat and the links that get posted. However, the YouTube video doesn't provide access to these additional resources.

I'd quite understand if you'd want to make some of these a privilege of signing up and attending a BTS Webinar but there are nonetheless some useful public resources that your wider audience might wish to get access to. The "trail markers" in this video for example would be of interest to many.

Very useful and inspiring talk on the use of the iPython notebook for experimental and explorative computing with Python and other systems. Could this be the future of engineering computation?

Every journalist and politician using 2012 PISA results to criticise education should watch this to understand how narrow what the so-called homogeneous testing actually measures and how dangerous going backwards to "improve" will be. I thought this was a great presentation (how did you do it?) which makes it's point very well although at the end I have to say that it's unclear to me how technology on its own will bring the changes that you hope for. I wish it'd been on my list of three peer assessed articles but I'm grateful to @monica_yaya for mentioning it on twitter hashtag  #edcmooc .

In my view a combination of old-skool practices and new technologies would be the best strategy. Not all students and teachers are wired for education via new technologies.

Nice new series on using Virtualization/Vagrant for Drupal development. You will need to subscribe to drupalize.me to see the whole series but the first two parts -- 1. an introduction and justification and 2. installation are free.
Vagrant allows you to create portable work environments which can be easily reproduced on any system. It's useful for developers and system administrators who want to mimic a server's configuration on their local machine. It's useful for teams who want to quickly get designers and project managers up and running with a local installation. Vagrant is a wrapper which ties together several components including: virtualization software, such as Virtu...
