Thanks for this! Lang is always wonderful to read, and I've really been working with my students on the topic of time; in an online class where they set their own pace and timing, it's a critical issue... and they don't have a lot of experience in making their own choices given the way classes normally work (or don't work).

I’ve been doing some research on Next Generation Digital Learning Environments (NGDLE) and think it might be another useful way to frame some of the work we are doing with open edtech. Educause has a 7 Things paper and a deeper white paper on NGDLE, and…

Wow... that's a double wow: first for the story about Syria... and then a wow for the evil scrapers.

South of the border, I am watching the WP in Higher Ed community growing, and it strikes me that there may be an appetite for  something similar to happen in BC. WordPress has deep roots in the BC post-sec system, and there is a lot of WordPress use…

There was a great series of blog posts between Dave Winer and Joi Ito this past weekend about the Open Web that touched on the role of universities in the Open Web. You can read Ito’s first post, Winer’s response, and Ito’s followup. A few things struck…

This year the BC post-secondary system is trying something new with conferences. Instead of multiple small conferences, there is going to be an uber-conference called the Festival of Learning, June 6-9 in Burnaby. The Festival brings together a number of…

Any project that builds networks where faculty share ideas and connects sounds great!

Story
Tagline
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.
