Here is a good article about the importance of the role of the online instructor in the motivation of students each semester. It makes me wonder if we are designing in enough opportunities / forums for instructors to interact with and motivate online students?
These 10 strategies can help keep learners on track to successfully finish your online course.

I think the presenters are using Google Hangouts, so the sessions should be recorded.

Anthony Casalena, founder of Squarespace, recently gave a talk on minimalism and the process he uses to decide which ideas are worth pursuing, which should be tabled for later, and which should be thrown out altogether. The one part in Casalena’s talk that really resonated with me — and should for tech managers and executives — was this anecdote:I remember…looking at the to-do list and going, "I don't want to do a single thing on this list.

Good little read. Teaching online helps f2f teachers let go of being the sage on the stage, see the heart of the lesson, and facilitate better discussions with improved questioning.
Teaching online has made me a better F2F instructor because it forced me to think outside of my comfort zone—something I expect of students every day.

Paisan's was recommended to us by a local while at a conference at the Monona Terrace. It was close by and has plenty of seating. I had the sampler and it was just OK for me. Not bad, but nothing I can rave about.

Food is fresh. Scallops are deep fried. Most food we had was deep fried and had little or no seasoning in the batter. Its OK food for the area but sub par compared other seafood restaurants I've eaten at.

I've had suddenlink Internet only for 5 years now and had a great experience with them. In 5 years the internet has only gone out maybe 2 times and never for longer than a few hours. The speeds have been consistent and billing has never been an issue. Be careful when using these reviews. It looks like most people only write one when they have an axe to grind.
