What Future for Education?
The Institute of Education, University of London, has just started their second free MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) on Coursera. The six-week course explores the question "what future for education?" and is a fantastic opportunity for everybody involved ...

Today is...yes, Halloween, but more importantly (locally), it's Bloomsbury's Big Blackboard Switchoff Day!

The Institute of Education finally finalises its VLE/LMS migration from Blackboard to Moodle at 5pm GMT with a small countdown party. A big project reaches a huge milestone.

Tomorrow, I will either have some time for other projects again, or be as overloaded as in the past few weeks. I hope for the former but expect the latter.

Just got my new iPad and am surprised that G+ doesn't have an iPad app yet. Seems I got the machine just at the right time.

We are, however, open to all ideas and fields related to new technologies for learning.

This is the sort of art Learning Technologists are capable of creating. Seen on +Dejan Ljubojevic's desk.

At the +London Knowledge Lab, Dave Berry from +Qualcomm presented their R&D work at CAMRAD, Qualcomm's Cambridge-based R&D department. Their outputs include device-to-device technology, research on gestures and perhaps most notably (as an end product) the +blippar context-sensitive Augmented Reality mobile app, which comes with a free SDK under the +Vuforia label, so developers can augment almost any shape on a cameraphone's screen.

Worth checking out.

Automatic milk frothers aren't too bad, and LKL's espresso machine isn't either. I think we currently have www.squaremilecoffee.com beans in the machine!
