14 Apr 2006 (Fri)

A neat summary from Educause on how to make sense of emergent technologies such as Screencasting, Virtual Meetings, Grid Computing, Collaborative Editing, Instant Messaging, Augmented Reality, Blogs, Video Blogging, Wikis, Podcasting, Clickers, and Social Bookmarking.

  • How does it work?
  • Why is it significant?
  • What are the downsides?

What’s In A Name?

26 Apr 2004 (Mon)

“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” — Romeo to Juliet, in reply to her complaint that his name is all that keeps him from her (a play by William Shakespeare)

Simulative learning with MSNBC's Baggage ScreeningWHILE BROWSING IN THE LIBRARY two weeks ago, i happened to pick up a book published in 2002 by Diana Laurillard entitled, “Rethinking University Teaching — a framework for the effective use of learning technologies”.

‘Industry’ vs. ‘Academia’ III

20 Sep 2003 (Sat)

AFTER HEARING MAISH NICHANI SPEAK at an e-Learning Practitioners’ Forum in the National Institute of Education last Thursday, i felt excited and yet later, vaguely uneasy.

Excited that Information Design was finally introduced to e-learning practitioners, and Maish has done it very well, with lots of diverse and interesting examples. Particularly liked revisiting the first two — Charles Joseph Minard’s Mapping Napoleon’s March, 1861 and The New York Times’ From One Hotel Guest Many Infections (SARS) infographic.

Concerned though about a few probable issues: (1) The examples were mostly CBT-like, with little indications of actual information design principles at work (perhaps not enough time), (2) Maish’s focus had been wholly on visual design and nothing on the writing, (3) How are we going to teach this complex stuff to our academic staff (or students) who have very little time and motivation?

Is this a problem of academic theory vs. industry practice again? Read the rest of this entry »
