A few weeks back at the Open Textbook Summit, Hugh McGuire from Pressbooks announced a new hosted Pressbooks offering aimed at institutions called Pressbooks EDU. Since that announcement, I’ve had a few emails from people asking what this might mean for…

For the past 6 months my organization BCcampus has been in a dispute with the University of Guelph over our use of this: Like many of you, we have always used the term OpenEd as a short form way of saying Open Education. It’s a term that is familiar to…

University of Guelph. So open they trademark and squat on a widely used term.

Your team at UBC has done amazing, groundbreaking work. So sorry you have to deal with these hassles.

Last week was all about the 3rd annual open textbook summit in Vancouver. The summit was bigger than ever this year and marked a number of firsts for us; the first time we have done a more traditional conference format, soliciting presentation proposals…

One of the projects we are funding is the development of a number of interactive Excel documents to support an open finance textbook in our collection. These types of projects are fun to do because they enhance an existing resource and add interactivity…

Some positive news from the University of Guelph on the Open Ed front today. The UofG was not opposed to sharing the mark more broadly within the post-secondary sector as evidenced by our efforts to provide a license to BC Campus. However, it is evident…

Note: I wrote this in September of 2014 when the Minecraft sale to Microsoft was first announced. I don’t know why I didn’t publish it then. But I came across it today in my drafts and felt the need to publish it, even though it is over 6 months old. It’s…

Exactly! I'm guessing grandson might not have even thought of the burdens that fame can bring. I am curious what he will say!

Much of this post has been cross-posted at the open.bccampus.ca website, but I wanted to repeat it here because I think that the work that John Hilton II and others are doing at the Open Education Group is important work for the entire OpenEd community.…

An EdTech trying to balance the Ed with the Tech
Introduction
Wrangler of learning technologies by day, Dad, cyclist, soccer fan and, lately, home roaster of coffee by night. Before working in EdTech, I had a bit of a career as a radio broadcaster, working at a few radio stations in  Alberta and BC, many which no longer exist. I sincerely regret any part I might have had in their disappearance from the airwaves.In a previous life I had long hair and was a hippie manager of Global Roots Radio Village 900.

Rented roof racks for 2 years from them & had great service & fair price. Finally decided to buy a set of roof racks & carrier from them. After I got home with my "new" racks and carrier, I noticed that the carrier had scratches and scuffs and one of the hinges was broken. It was obviously not new. So I returned it. The second carrier I got was new, but it made me wary. Things went further south when, 9 months later, I had a problem with the roof racks. There was still time left on the 1 year warranty, so I went back to All Seasons to see about getting a new set of racks to replace the defective pair I had. Had a hard time convincing them I had a problem. They played it down, said it was a minor thing (the rubber feet were becoming detached from the actual rack) and the racks would work without the feet being secured in place. Finally left with them assuring me they would call the manufacturer and get me a new set of racks. Weeks later and after repeated phone calls (and after the warranty had conveniently expired on the racks), I was told that my issue was minor (perhaps, but it was a manufacturers defect nonetheless) and was told "that's what you get for buying the cheaper product." In the end, they never did honour the warranty and I am left with a sub-par set of roof racks and a bitter taste in my mouth about a company that I used to be very happy with.
