Great thoughts. Ingress does actually have a tutorial, but I'm not sure it did at launch. It is also something you can bypass and come back to later.

Pokémon Go is currently reliant on user generated communities and interactions (physical or virtual). I feel that was done more to avoid liability than by design.

Possible Blockchain Effects on the Humanities 1. Canon Problem 46:00 - 1:01:38

Kristin Thomson has posted an excellent piece on Medium that unpacks some of the major demographic features of the top 500 sociology texts in the syllabus corpus–particularly in regard to gender, age, and publication dates. To hit a couple of the highlights: Among the works on the list published ...

And what is even better than an open syllabus? How about having your essay or document certified in the Bitcoin blockchain?

The second site that Sherry introduced us to is Proof of Existence https://www.proofofexistence.com/ Go ahead and take a look! You too can have your work certified in the Bitcoin blockchain.

We talked about this site during the portion on Portfolios

Introduction

Instructional designer for online learning at a community college. My interests are online collaboration, immersion, role-play, virtual environments and games. Social network knowledge interests me because I see so much learning that is happening outside of formal learning environments. I believe that ignoring learning from distributed social and professional networks limits our students and our instructors’ futures. I game with a group of highly dedicated educators who are looking at knowledge construction in endgame play in MMORPGs. (Oh, and I have a tendency to be a bit intense about education!)
