Learning by reading +Jay Cross 's new book on Do It Yourself learning. Nice bit of reading, and all these wonderful options to explore! Just now had a look at Grit scale, a scale which seems to indicate your level of happiness and prosperity (in the future).

Hi, I'm Inge and I have worked in many areas in the past, and suddenly found myself completely absorbed by technology and learning in all it's aspects while working on mobile apps for continued professional health development in Tropical settings. So loving to using EdTech, building it, changing it, ... Currently investigating how people experience learning while they use technology, as well as how they learn when left to their own devices (the Open University of UK) and always a fan of Athabasca Uni in Canada (Go Canada!). And I like blogging at http://ignatiawebs.blogspot.com

A great new free issue of IRRODL is out. I feel it is one of the EdTech journals I like best: open access, interest, mixing EdTech's... a real joy!

http://ignatiawebs.blogspot.be/2015/06/why-is-it-irrodl-articles-are-such.html
There are numerous EdTech related journals out there, but whenever I read the abstracts of most new IRRODL issues, I am intrigued. Is it my love for Canada which makes me more susceptible for possible news? Is it because I li...

A nice bit of software to help with multiple interactive stories... and especially keeping them neat and full cycle. Trying it for some CFP eLearning options.

An incredibly useful (free) book describing the full design and implementation journey to implement new EdTech in challenging regions, written for ICT for development, but useful for all online teaching. 
This lively report - well it is a free book consisting of 318 pages - on Designing and Implementing an ICT for Development initiative in a resource constraint environment is one of the most amazing mobile learning and technol...

Story
Tagline
passionate about technology enhanced learning. Started out with eLearning, than going into mLearning and now realizing that ubiquitous learning ... will bring all differentiated technology enhanced learning back to the term learning. I currently work at the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Belgium and I am starting my exploratory thesis work for a M. Ed, in Distance Education at Athabasca University in Canada. My main interests are innovative learning methods (MOOC's, socio-constructivist learning), lifelong learning, social media for learning, network for knowledge... well anything that involves learning and connecting to improve knowledge (while using technology).
Introduction
My main interest is learning through and with technologies, focusing on the learning affordances of these technologies.

If you want to see what I am working on (or thinking about) in terms of TELearning, lookie here:
