Nice, although I'm a little sceptical about using a wearable device for learning purposes, depending on the subject of course.
The 2015 Mobile Learning Trends Infographic explores what role mobiles are playing in shaping up the workplace learning scenario.

I thought I'd recreate my troll doodle from this morning with arms and legs added. His right ear got a little droopy but, what the hell, he's a troll/zombie Scooby Do inspired monster. I'm sure he'll get over it.

Really awesome article about using animation to improve usability. Not in the over-the-top Flash type of way but subtly and cleverly.
Really nice site as well :)

"The groups produced fewer and worse results because they were more likely to get fixated on one idea and because, despite all exhortations to the contrary, some members felt inhibited and refrained from full participation."

Sadness, I wonder if these vandals even realise that the only thing they accomplished was to deprive the next generation of understanding who built this country.

+Pieter Henning​, I will agree that Cecil John Rhodes had a massive impact on putting South Africa on the map, and his Estate has also made a lot more available than most. That is a far cry from "who built this country".

What an awesome place. The rooms are fantastic and they have a number of great hiking routes. It's easy to find and is ideal for a peaceful get-away from the city.
