Thanks for the thoughtful piece, John. I teach fully online courses as an adjunct and currently have two sections with a total of 43 students in one course. I'm wondering if you have any examples for no. 5 –Create team-building experiences? I have found that to be especially challenging over the years, especially if the course is asynchronous by design. A Google hangout or Zoom meet-up to work with small groups could help, but with different time zones and busy people, the course remaining asynchronous can be necessary and expected. I'm trying to think of an asynchronous way of creating team-building experiences.

Nice list of inspiring postings from the #blimage challenge.
"The challenge is this: Send an image to friends in your personal learning network and ask them to write a learning related blog post about it. They then challenge their friends with an image of their choice. All the posts are labelled with the hashtag #blimage (blog-image) so they can be easily discovered and aggregated"

The trailer for the movie Code: debugging the gender gap. Here's a story about it: http://goo.gl/QZkDys.

In the early days of programming, women dominated the field. This was in no small part because male engineers thought this “soft” work was relatively trivial compared to building actual machines such as ENIAC. And in the decades that followed, more and more women entered computing: by the mid-1980s, women made up more than 35 percent of computer science majors in U.S. colleges. Then began a falloff that persists to this day, with U.S. computer science majors being about 15 percent female.

So impressed by what the students did with this #Minecraft  project that I had to share. #AMMinecraft  - Also believe it relates to overall importance of educators and students to develop  #digitalLiteracy  skills.

Update: Yesterday from the Economist: #artificialintelligence  should not excessively scare us, but some concern, perhaps: http://www.economist.com/news/briefing/21650526-artificial-intelligence-scares-peopleexcessively-so-rise-machines

Shared this on Twitter a while back but want to place it here as well. It's important for many reasons and something those of us who work in #highered  should probably be giving thought and attention.

The Importance of Trust

The buzz, during most of the week past was based around a recently released research paper by Google on how Trustworthiness can be calculated on the web without the use of links: http://goo.gl/ULpFUw

I have, of course, been talking about the ability Google to do this for some time now, detailing the steps you need to take for your business to capitalize on it. The acceleration of practices in this area is powered by the need to have trust in the results returned by search. Upon that 'simple' requirement is balanced the entire Google brand.
