Phil - Thanks for the cool post.  I was a little under-the-weather and so the "song" was not belted out with as much gusto as I should have given it.  The lyrics of the song were, "Its all about the Platform, 'bout the platform - No LMS. (repeat).  I'mbingining services back...  I'm bringing 'best-of-breed'-back.."   I was not so much thinking of you and Michael as "futurists" - most of your predictions are the next 1-2 years and mostly focused on seeing emergent things already in the marketplace.   Richard N. Katz's video from 2006 was a delightful "Science Fiction Prototyping" exercise which in retrospect is surprisingly Nostradamus-like.  I won't give that keynote talk again until 2020 when we can look back at all his predictions retrospectively.
By Phil HillMore Posts (298) At today’s Learning Analytics and Knowledge 2015 conference (#LAK15), Charles Severance (aka Dr. Chuck) gave the morning keynote organized around the theme of going back in time to see what people (myself and Richard Katz … Continue reading →

If Edu2025 was produced late 2011 or early 2012, then in a sense he has predicted (Nostradamus-style) both the birth and death of Google Glass as well as the emergence and ultimate failure of Microsoft's HoloLens and the emergence of what comes next.  Which is pretty clever.

I am going to read this over and over.  Nice work.  The problem is that if you want to gain market share you need to do whatever the dominant player in the market is doing - but with some kind of "sizzle" like "open source" or "speed grader".   No one wants a "whole new thing" no matter how many times they claim to want a whole new thing.  Faculty want the old thing with new paint.

With these new developments in the market space, it would behoove readers to review your blog post (and video) from 2008 titled "Openness: Finally, We're Getting Somewhere" http://mfeldstein.com/openness-finally-were-getting-somewhere/ - this features my most memorable event in the past decade of Educause where Brad Wheeler and Adrian Sanier discuss "community source".  Nice to look back and hear the strong statements and see who was the best predictor as to how things were going to work out.
As Phil noted in yesterday’s post, Kuali is moving to a for-profit model, and it looks like it is motivated more by sustainability pressures than by some grand affirmative vision for the organization. There has been a long-term debate in … Continue reading →

I am disappointed that you missed Rock-Paper-Scissors.  It is a good way for two people to collaborate to make data-less decisions.

My GoPro Hero4 Silver does not perform nearly as well as yours in similar low-light situations.  Is there a special setting or firmware update that gets the quality you are showing in this video?  My Hero4 Silver is barely better than my Hero3 Silver in low light situations for 1080p/30fps - I have this feeling I am missing a critical setting in the Hero4.

For some reasons (I tell in private, in case) I didn't till now. I met
Mauro and he told me about it and the rest of the time. Hope you enjoyed
our lovely places :)
Nice your gear, anyway low light/rumor is my challenge as a no-pro.

+Diana Perpich There is already a working English version, but Beta testing is currently limited to Taiwan (the in-class/non-MOOC version). More details will be released soon.

I just made this repair this evening - it took me 30 minutes and your video was essential.   I bought the car with oil leak because of your video.   Saved me a bunch.

I think that sadly too many teachers are flipping the classroom because it is cool - not because they feel it can help them.  What is good about the hype is that I do think we have more permission (and a cover story) to try flip experiments in our classrooms - and that flexibility is nice.   But the notion that all cool teachers are flipping and so should you is just another teaching bandwagon that is chatted about endlessly by non-teachers, experts, and the press.  Most wise and experienced teachers just lean back and say "Interesting.   I might try that a bit here and there and see how it goes".  Those who rush in because they read about it in an airline magazine will learn that non-teaching expert opinions work better on the keynote circuit than in the classroom.  Everything in moderation.
