Someone must have made the mistake of thanking them, and off they flew, offended!

Refriggindiculous!
Audrey Watters originally shared:
 
Does FERPA ban schools from allowing students to share their coursework online? (OMFG NO). But that hasn't stopped Georgia Tech from crippling the school's wikis. Pretty sad considering that's the university where school-based wiki usage was founded.

Historiann asks, I deliver. Some folks on G+ might be interested in my reflections on how my university seems to think faculty should teach online courses. (Scroll down to the subhead that begins with "A desire to scale up..." for those thoughts.)

I really enjoyed reading your article on Lecture Capture! This might interest you along those lines. It has some of the features you list. It's not exactly used for lectures, though there are some capture tools that allow annotation:
[Art and knowledge eventually happen in the heads of the audience. The Provocateur Project (http://provoke.ucsd.edu) tries to tap into the silent conversation that happens in the audience collective mind during a conference or in a performance setting. Using a web-based platform the users can share comments, which in turn, through a series of natural language processing algorithms, are used to tap into existing knowledge bases, such as Google news, blogs, Wikipedia, FreeBase etc. The portal relies on the audience in a crowd-sourced manner to promote best contents and subsequently generates knowledge objects to create a structured visual output and help move debate forward. ]

For face-to-face courses I prefer in-person paper evals (though with computers and mobile devices you could have students log in during the final class session). Point is, I appreciate the input from students who actually attend rather than from everyone on the roster including the "disappeared," which is how it works now with online evals on my campus.

“One or two people in this room will die in the next five years because of research that didn’t make its way to clinics fast enough,” one presenter, Cameron Neylon, told the crowd. Mr. Neylon, a biophysicist, is a senior scientist at Britain’s Science and Technology Facilities Council. He spoke at a session on how open access can create new opportunities for business as well as for scholarship. “This is not about ideology anymore,” it’s about creating the best, most efficient mechanisms for getting research to those who need it, he said.

Our son has been enrolled here for two years, and the change in his attitude and self-confidence has been remarkable. The entry-level Taekwondo classes for kids were perfect for him, with equal emphasis on martial arts and respect for onesself and one another. Our son is now enrolled in their Juniors program as well as their Leadership program. Their instructor-to-student ratio is also remarkable relative to other kids' martial arts programs we have tried in the area. There is a seemingly inexhaustible supply of instructors and color-belt assistants to draw upon, depending on how many kids show up to class on any given day. The on-site owners and staff are all friendly and accommodating. The hours we spend there with our son are some of the best hours of every week.

Our seven-year-old son has been with the Meridian Idaho ATA for more than a year, and in that time, we have seen tremendous growth in his athleticism and attitude. The instructors are terrific with the kids, and my son is learning so many new physical and interpersonal skills. Highly recommended!
